The October edition of Analog Science Fiction and Fact is now available on Amazon.
This issue includes my story “Angles of Incidence”, in which a famed Xenoarchaeologist gets ripped from her studies to negotiate a colonial dispute between obnoxious human settlers and their alien hosts. The story also involves mysteriously glowing statues, an ancient entity who speaks an indecipherable language, and some quite literal head-chomping.
(Astute readers will recognize the protagonist from A Starscape Slightly Askew. Happily, it is not necessary to read the earlier story in order to understand the new one.)
This is my first publication with Analog and I’m thrilled to be appearing in such a prestigious magazine. Hopefully this initial appearance will be followed by many more.
