Today’s mail tells me I’m a fiction author again! Contributor’s copies of the January/February 2022 issue of Analog Science Fiction & Fact showed up, and my story, “On the Rocks,” is on page 140.
As I note in the bio attached to the story, this is my <gasp> 30th year of publishing fiction in Analog (my first, “Fermat’s Legacy,” was in the September 1992 issue).
So, woo! and hoo! (And now I have to write more fiction, since with this publication, I don’t have any stories in inventory anywhere.)
