I’m a little late to the party, of course, but Analog recently published one of my short stories: “Hillman, Charles Dallas, Age: 35, No Partner, Parents: Deceased.” I’m certainly biased, but I think you’ll like it. At least I hope it might get you to thinking a bit.
Now they’ve dropped a companion piece I wrote semi-tangentially about it: Eleven And a Half Laps.
With a little luck, it will get you thinking, too. Or, if you’re already thinking along these lines, maybe it will help you put some big numbers into context.
In the meantime, go grab the whole issue. It’s chock full of great stuff.
