Coming Attractions

This issue is getting ready to go to press at the end of February, and SFWA, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, has just announced the ballot for its annual Nebula Awards. The list of nominees, selected by other writers, includes "The Deepwater Bride" by Tamsyn Muir from our July/August issue last year. The awards will be announced at the 2016 SFWA Nebula Conference in mid-May, around the time this volume finds its way into your hands. We hope you will join us in congratulating Ms. Muir on her nomination, and all the nominees on this recognition.

The heat of summer will be here soon for many of us, and our July/ August issue will have a perfect mix of stories to read at the beach or enjoy in the cool shade. Last year, Gregor Hartmann brought us two adventures set on the planet Zephyr. He returns with a science fiction story closer to home about a man who gets in trouble because he's "Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful." It's hard to believe that it's been forty-five years since Phyllis Eisenstein introduced us to Alaric the Minstrel in our August 1971 issue. Now Alaric returns in "The Desert of Vanished Dreams," an adventure that will change everything you thought you knew about his world. Plus we'll have new stories by familiar visitors to these pages like Geoff Ryman and David Prill, as well as work by talented newcomers K. B. Rylander and Betsy Phillips, along with a few surprises we're still working on.
