The December issue of Analog is a good one, with all the stories well worth reading & getting a very good rating from me.
"Audobon in Atlantis" is another alternate history story from the master of the craft, Harry Turtledove. This has a very alternate Earth. Visible on the title page is a map of the Atlantis that John James Audobon travels to in search of a rare bird. This Atlantis is the eastern part of North America that's about 1000 miles away from the rest of the continent! Turtledove gives us a very good story set in this world.
"In Do Neanderthals Know" by Robert J. Howe a man must deal with his best friend and his wife getting ahead of him on the evolutionary scale. "A Christmas in Amber" by Scott William Carter is a touching story of a man who gets a wonderful gift from his granddaughter. Carl Frederick's "Hotel Security" tells us of a man who runs afoul of his own profession. "The Slow Ones" by Larry Niven is another Draco Tavern story about some very slow aliens.
This issue did not disappoint at all, so I recommend it!
