"Field of Gravity" by Jay Werkheiser - Se se é apreciador do imaginar de desportos futuros,vertente pouco explorada por autores de FC mais amantes dos prazeres intelectuais do que corporais, este é um conto interessante. Se não, tem o seu quê de interesse com a descrição de uma modalidade futura de futebol americano onde os campos contam com geradores de gravidade e modificar a força de gravidade faz parte das estratégias de jogo. Se se gostar de futebol americano percebe-se a dinâmica do conto, ...more

A very good issue of Analog after some disappointing months. The nonfiction this issue includes an informative feature by Edward Lerner on the paranormal that overviews the history of the subject as explored seriously both in science fiction and in reality, and provides some ideas on how our current understanding of physical reality, particularly on the quantum level, could conceivably allow for certain paranormal phenomena in theory. Though as Lerner points out, there is little evidence to back ...more

A good enough issue.

"Field of Gravity" was interesting for being a rare sci-fi sports story, future football with artificial gravity control (and injury-protecting suits) thrown in. I wonder if anyone but Americans know what "cover 2" is?

"Survivors" gives us aliens stranded on earth, secretly. A good story.

Two short stories and one essay stood out to me, in this issue.

Field of Gravity by Jay Werkheiser— This is a tale of one possible future for American football. Hundreds of gravity generators are embedded in each field, allowing coaches to dial the gravity up or down for specific plays. Coaches can use their energy budget to offset the gravity changes of the opposing coach, adding an additional level of strategy to the game. It was a clever concept and I enjoyed the execution.

The Region of Jen

Overall, a strong, solid issue with only a couple of clunkers. For instance, "The Region of Jennifer" wasn't all that great and is probably the weakest tale in the magazine. And while "The Journeyman: In the Stone House" was actually quite humorous, it is otherwise not really something that stands out much.

"Field of Gravity", "The Homecoming", "Survivors" and "A Star to Steer By" are the issue's highlights. Good, strong fascinating tales.

There was one oddity this month: Two of the essays (well,

I read the Michael Flynn and the Bud Sparhawk stories. Both were quite good. The Flynn story was a bit hard to follow due to his attempt at giving the characters an unusual dialect as they are speaking, but I could still follow it alright.
