There’s a lot I liked about the short story “Fetch”, by @ScottRoche, besides all the #Buffy and #Exorcist-style spookiness. It features an #atheist and a #theist who —get this— are actually able to work together. In fact, they manage to enjoy a very warm, affectionate, mature male friendship in the middle of all the #horror. Plus, this feels like it could be the opening chapter of a larger work...
Sorcha Rowan’s “Dancing with Calamity” is a fun #Lesbian #Steampunk #Western tale, the likes of which I don’t think I’ve enjoyed since I was young. OK, so my childhood #cowboy stories did not include any girl-on-girl (this is not for the kids) but it shares their spirit of #adventure. It also deals with more sober matters, such as adjusting to a recently acquired #disability, but it never goes too dark. It can’t. There’s always action requiring our hero’s attention just a paragraph or two away.
Escape Pod episode 635, Matthew Claxton’s “After Midnight at the Zap Stop”, serves up a primo slice of #SciFi #Noir. It’s updated #biotech #cyberpunk with more lower-middle class hopes, fears, and aspirations. More episodes like this one, please! Thanks!
Version 2.0 of “Rakshasas” has been unleashed upon the universe!
An excerpt —
“…Even those depicted in the artworks of other species have all been replaced by blank spaces on canvases, gaps in bas-reliefs, and empty lines in songs. Just about everyone on Haven is certain the Rakshasas went extinct during the same magical catastrophe that gave rise to the White Waste.”
