  1. I remember back in the day when Analog used to serialize novels. When’s the last time that happened? (I realize it might be that they still do and that I’m ignorant, since I don’t subscribe to either of the two magazines.)

  2. I’m so delighted to see Suzanne Palmer’s Waterlines get recognized. That was my first-choice Hugo Novella this year.

  3. Rich Lynch: I remember back in the day when Analog used to serialize novels. When’s the last time that happened?

    They’re both still still doing it, but it’s as individual pieces all set in the same universe — with varying levels of success at standing alone. A couple of the pieces cheated onto the Hugo ballot by the Puppies in 2015 were very clearly part of a larger story and made no sense on their own.

    I don’t have an Analog subscription, but Asimov’s in the last few years has been running pieces in the following universes (this is a non-exhaustive list):

    Diving Universe by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
    Arkwright by Allen M. Steele
    City of Storms / Sere by Alexander Jablokov
    The Stars by James Gunn
    Veritas by Robert Reed
    Amanda James / Cole the Younger by R. Garcia y Robertson
    Delbert & Zeb by Marc Laidlaw and Rudy Rucker

    I always read the Rusch and Steele stories, and I’ve read the two Jablokov stories published thus far. I will admit to trying some of the other stories, finding them to be missing too much context, and not finishing.

    The July/August 2020 issue of Analog includes THE HOUSE OF STYX, Part III, by Derek Künsken (author of, among other things, The Quantum Magician, serialized in Analog in 2018).
    I got to briefly meet Künsken at Dublin WorldCon — standing around waiting for something, chatted with nearby person just because, recognized his name, told him I’d enjoyed TheQM, which made him happy.

  5. Robert Sawyer’s Triggers was serialized not that long ago (at least not long ago as I remember it).
