“Richard A. Lovett and Mark Niemann-Ross are ‘two halves’ of one of the best science fiction writers Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine has ever discovered.

Here are five of the most original, most entertaining, fascinating, and just plain fun stories to emerge from this happy collaboration. ”–David R. Palmer, award-winning author of Emergence and Tracking
