We’re making a big change! Since our founding, we’ve brought you an even mix of original fiction and reprint fiction, but now we’re shaking things up and swapping out two of our reprint stories for two pieces of original flash fiction. Our first piece of flash will be the fantasy piece “How to Become an Ancestor” by Nicole D. Sconiers. Our SF flash story will be “No Lies Detected” by Russell Nichols. Our original (full-sized) science fiction short stories are by Everdeen Mason (“Miss the Zen but Miss You More”) and Andrew Dana Hudson (“A Smell of Jet Fuel”). Our SF reprint is from Stephen Graham Jones: “To Jump Is to Fall.” Our original fantasy shorts are by Rachel Swirsky (“Innocent Bird”) and Lulu Kadhim (“Amber Dark Sickly Sweet”), and our fantasy reprint is by Cadwell Turnbull (“Shock of Birth”). All that, and of course we also have our usual assortment of author spotlights, along with book reviews from our terrific review team. Our ebook readers will also enjoy an excerpt from Shelley Parker-Chan's new novel, She Who Became the Sun.
