Read the Opening of 'SEAGULLs, Jack-o-Lanterns, Interstitial Spaces'

I try not to overdo the shameless plugs, but the opening of my story in the November issue of Analog Science Fiction & Fact — “SEAGULLs, Jack-o-Lanterns, and Interstitial Spaces” — has been posted on the Analog web site.

The page also includes Vincent DiFate’s illustration:

You can read the opening of “SEAGULLs” by clicking through from this link.

You can also see the entire table of contents by clicking here. On that page you’ll also find these kind words of introduction from editor Stanley Schmidt,

We always have a bit of a dilemma about where to put seasonal material: in the issue named for the month in which a holiday or other event occurs, or the one that actually appears closest to that date? Our November issue contains at least one item that could be construed as Halloween related, from its title, “SEAGULLs, Jack-O-Lanterns, and Interstitial Spaces.” And that holiday does in fact play a role in it, though not, as author Gray Rinehart points out, as much as the title suggests. Set in a space station, it’s a quintessential Analog story in which an intriguing technical problem and the lives of the people who must deal with it are inextricably entwined—and I’ll bet you can’t guess what the SEAGULLs and jack-o-lanterns really are!

Of course, I hope you’ll buy a copy of the magazine … along with the October-November issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction, which includes my story “The Second Engineer.”
