Description

Compelling Science Fiction is a magazine created by people who believe that science fiction is important. Science fiction expands the mind and drives progress through inspiration. Our goal is to find and deliver great science fiction stories that are entertaining, inspiring, and extremely well thought out. Our stories tend to lean toward what is referred to as 'hard' science fiction, in the sense that we prefer stories that are self-consistent, scientifically plausible, and technically detailed when necessary. This issue of Compelling Science Fiction contains five excellent stories:

1. "They Breed Like Flies" by Jeff Walden, a fun, detailed look at the social behaviors of an alien society. The story focuses on a creature at the edge of adulthood as he navigates his own cultural institutions and encounters a human first contact party (8000 words).

2. Rich Larson's "We Are Destroyers," a story about an AI-controlled commune that is attacked by religious fanatics (2700 words).

3. "All That Is Solid" by Chris Barnham, a story about an emergent empathetic AI that is dismantled out of concern over potential repercussions (4330 words).

4. "The Little Gods" by Jamie Wahls, a story about what it's like for parents to watch their enhanced child become vastly more intelligent and capable than them (1700 words).

5. "Down and Out" by Ken Wharton, a fascinating piece of world-building. The narrative revolves around members of an alien water-dwelling species as they make incredible discoveries about their world (6600 words). "Down and Out" is excerpted with permission from "Science Fiction by Scientists: An Anthology of Short Stories" published by Springer Science + Business Media.
