"An impressive story by a rather new writer is Ken Wharton's "Flight Correction", set in the Galapagos Islands... Wharton works hard to integrate an interesting classic Analog "engineering story" with an interesting character story, and for the most part he succeeds... Solid work." -- Rich Horton, Locus
"A thoroughly enjoyable science mystery with some engaging characters -- fun to read." -- Deborah Layne, Tangent Online
"Clearly the best of the issue in all the dimensions of writing that matter to me. ... I wish all of them were like this." -- Bluejack, Bluejack.com
