Category: Science Fiction
Description: Our July/August double issue takes full advantage of its extra space to offer a range of features that wouldn't fit in a regular issue. Bob Eggleton's cover heralds "Doctor Alien's Five Empty Boxes," a new novella by Rajnar Vajra about the psychiatrist (introduced last year) who has to treat troubled extraterrestrials--without knowing what they consider "normal." In this one he has an added challenge, related to the venerable observation that things are seldom what they seem. . . .
We'll also have novellas by Stephen Baxter and Stephen L. Burns, and a couple of items commemorating the anniversary of Apollo 11, both by writers who have actually worked in the U.S. space program: a novelette by Marianne J. Dyson and a poem by Geoffrey A. Landis. Finally, Richard A. Lovett has two offerings: a science fact article on how we might moderate global warming by using artificial volcanoes, and another entry in his popular series of special features on writing--this time on the serious business of writing humor (of which, by the way, we just might also have an example or two).
