GENTLY DOWN THE STREAM
The new science-fiction novelette (and the first in eBook form) by Ambassador Tlatnet-Tholfth’s publisher J. Timothy Bagwell, author of Tangible Light (Analog: Science Fiction and Fact) and The Oneiric Telefactor (Leading Edge). Gently Down the Stream is Bagwell’s second foray into the speculative science of oneiric telefactory, the remote use of artificial bodies while in a lucid dream state. As an industrial psychologist struggles to fight widespread addiction to a drug that induces scriptable, time-dilated dreams, his military counterpart uses incarcerated addicts as guinea pigs in an attempt to create an army of super soldiers. $1.99 Click here to review or order.

THE ONEIRIC TELEFACTOR
Day Therland works as an oneiric telefactor on Venus, where it rains acid and snows metal, where the atmospheric pressure is over 90 times that of Earth, and the mean surface temperature is well over 800 °F. Good thing his body is on Earth. Except that it’s not. It’s on Venus, and Day has only hours to find out where it is and why it has been brought there. Originally published in Leading Edge 56. $1.99 Click here to review or order.
