I'm looking for someone who published in Analog... probably 80's-90's.

I think the name was TR Thomson. There was a race of deer-like aliens called... maybe the Hruban? Their language was plains-speech and they had a good sense of smell. There was more than one story.

On Tour With Gyes had a woman whose brain was reprogrammed because she committed a bad crime (her wages went towards reparations to a family) and she had a computer interface in her hands. The Hruban was an author, he got injured and needed the same reprogramming technology to correct some brain-damage.

All I remember from another story is that a Hruban got sick from eating too much of the ivy that was growing on a doorframe. I think they were in a Mars biodome.

I had to fool around a bit on the Internet Science Fiction Database to find this person, but I think this is who you mean:


The story you mention:


The only series listed for this author is the Kya series.


I can't tell if this is the series you mean or not.

That would be it, yeah. Thank you. I probably mixed up the deer aliens with cat aliens from a McCaffrey series or something.
