The October issue of Analog is a very good one with all the stories getting a Very Good rating from me.

"Takes Two to Tangle" is another fun little story involving the diminutive Sam Gunn by Ben Bova. In this one, he commissions a friend to build a matter-transmitting machine but this is opposed by a beautiful woman who is the Bishop of a new religion. What happened makes for an amusing tale. More serious is "From Wayfield, From Malagasy" by Robert J. Howe. In this story, the captain of a ship stranded on a primitive planet must make the right moral decision to save his crew. This one works out rather nicely.

"Rival of Mars" by David Walton is set in a future in which all babies are born through surrogates. A man whose girlfriend is just such a surrogate learns something from her experience. Finally, Richard A. Lovett gives us a science fictional version of the classic Internet "Nigerian Scam." This one involves aliens and has a very clever ending.

This issue is well worth picking up!
