Good enough issue with several entertaining stories.

"Not Far Enough" by Martin L. Shoemaker —
Any survival story set on Mars is going to feel a bit like The Martian these days. This one adds a crazy ship's AI to remind us of 2001 as well, but has a whole crew, so they can bicker, too, and eventually come to some accommodation. Likable enough read. ***1/2*

"For All Mankind" by C. Stuart Harwick
Alternate history (or secret history) in which two female astronauts must divert an asteroid fro striking

For some reason, these days, when I get a new issue of "Analog" in my hands, I'm reluctant to start reading it. I guess that's because when I get it, it feels like it's interrupting my reading schedule. Which is absurd since I know when I'll be getting the next issue and have already made mental allowances for it and know approximately where the issue goes in reading order. But usually, once I get started on the current issue, everything's okay and I get into it.

This issue in particular made it

Good. The Bradbury's mission to Mars has several mishaps. The landers barely make it to the landing site before a storm hits. They can't get the landers in the pit. One crashes into the propellant storage and causes major damage and one death. The other sent back to orbit crashes into the Bradbury. Poor analysis from Deece the AI a major problem in both incidents. The survivors have some friction, but also work as a team, and most importantly

A pretty good issue in which most of the stories were enjoyable. However, there were some less-good ones, too.

Not Far Enough • novella by Martin L. Shoemaker
The second expedition to Mars arrives. As there were some problems with the first one, the current mission is controlled in part by artificial intelligence. It turns out to be extremely badly designed and is partially responsible for a catastrophe that almost destroys the party. There are deaths and one member of the expedition loses a leg.

Hace más de seis meses que no leo la revista, más o menos desde que pasó a ser bimensual, pero lo cierto es que este número está bastante por encima de la media a la que nos tenía habituados el Schmidt o como se escriba (sí, ya sé que se retiró bastante antes, pero estas revistas se preparan con meses de antelación, y los cuentos se eligen todavía antes).

Lo dicho, un número por encima de la media con, evidentemente historias mejores e historias peores. Las que más me han gustado han sido "Not Fa
