--The Exoanthropic Principle--
This, the final offering in the anthology, is a first contact story that (loosely) makes use of Dr. Leonard Susskind's Landscape theory. (Dr. Susskind is one of the two creators of String Theory.)
Old-fashioned, perhaps, this story—but geeky.
It appeared first in the Jul/Aug 2008 issue of Analog Magazine.
--The Lycanthropic Principle--
Through the eyes of a 'wuggy'(the opposite of a geek), this story explores the nature of geekishness and of modern reality.
It was first published in the October, 2011 issue of Analog Magazine.
