"The Savage Oath" is Michael Lockwood's next story. Robert Lockwood meets the Pequod Nation.
This issue has two excellent stories in the Universe Annex. One is Edward M. Lerner's "The Company Bane, Part 1." His investigator is closing in, but it's a race against time.
In J. D. Jordan's story "Sh/ft" a young Hopi woman relates her experience with an unusual ability.
