      • "engineers love it!"

      Analog publishes a mix of science fiction short stories, novellas, serialized novels and science fact. Established writers like Ben Bova appear with newcomers. The book reviews are good, and an Upcoming Events column announces Scifi/Fantasy conventions. The fiction pieces routinely win major awards in the scifi world. Analog is one of the big three: Analog, Asimov's Science Fiction and the Magazine of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Major writers, and new comers wanting to make a name for themselves, aim to be published here. Analog tends to publish 'hard scifi' although it sometimes has some 'social science fiction' as well. It's got to be fairly reasonable stuff scientifically. The factual pieces are about aspects of science that appear in scifi literature. The editor, Stanley Schmidt, likes 'upbeat endings', so a lot of the fiction is fairly predictable. Forget fantasy, stuff based on games or tv -- this is nice solid old-fashioned science fiction: space opera, aliens to get along with, alternative histories and universes. If you're fairly serious about reading science friction, this is a good mag to subscribe to. If you prefer fantasy, you might not find much of interest in it.
