Analog 951 - Stanley Schmidt

The thing with science fiction magazines is they can jump up and surprise you, at least those that don't consist of only a story or two.

This one had a pretty ordinary start, then jumped up with the very good and highly inventive Venusian Burns tale, and followed with some reasonable work, finishing up with a fun Stephen Baxter Novella.

A fine article on the matter/antimatter question too, by Cramer. Plus a few artificial volcanoes.
