As the November issue of Analog has the first part of a serial, there are only three pieces of short fiction, one novella, one novelette and one short story. Fortunately, they are all very good.

"The Diversification of Its Fancy" by John Barnes is a novella about a talented musician named Giraut Leones who is also an agent of the Office of Special Projects, which helps to keep the "Thousand Cultures" in his universe going. There are dangers here but one can always be brought back to life by downloading your memories to a new body. The problem is that there is a minority of people for whom this is not possible.

"The Case of the Contumacious Qubit" by Thomas R. Dulski is an amusing little story about a missing science professor and two men, Oliver Wendell Baker & his assistant Woodside who are trying to find her at the request of her great-nephew. All this is against the backdrop of a science fair at a university in New Jersey.

"911-Backup" by Richard Lovett is another tale that involves backed up memories. In this case, the individual involved has not been careful about his storage space.

All in all, this is a good issue this month.
