A collection of science fiction stories from the pages of Analog magazine by the award-winning team of Richard A. Lovett and Mark Niemann-Ross, including the 2011 Analytical Laboratory (reader's choice) Award winning novella "Phantom Sense" and the 2006 Analytical Laboratory Award winning novelette "NetPuppets."

Lovett and Niemann-Ross have written some of the most thought-provoking and entertaining stories I’ve read in years—Nebula award winner Jerry Oltion

Come explore the dark space between science and humanity – with a bonus look at the science that jut might make it come true. In these pages, you will meet:
• Sgt. Kip McCorbin, who must choose between the military's special-ops sixth-sense and the love of his family.
• Courtney Brandt who lies frozen on a glacier, but warm to the touch, as her killer is already claiming another victim.
• Valerie Akwasi, who stumbles into the deadly side of a vineyard.
Michael Graves, who could be your best friend or your worst enemy -- but who doesn't care because to him you're just an experiment.

Phantom Sense . . . is a lesson in how to write a short. . . . From the start it grabs you and never lets go. In every way this story reminded me how good Science Fiction shorts can be.—Tangent Online

Lovett is probably Analog’s best regular writer.-- Locus, July 2011

Lovett and Niemann-Ross are ‘two halves’ of one of the best science fiction "writers" Analog magazine has ever discovered.—Three-time Hugo nominee David R. Palmer
