It was an explosive month for horrific miscuers! Look at all this great fiction!
• Liz Argall had two amazing stories published this month. “Shadow Play,” a story of shapeshifting, memory, and the history of puppets, inspired by random banter with William Alexander over twitter, is at Daily Science Fiction. And “Mermaid’s Hook” is at Apex: Rescuing a sailor is not as easy as it sounds. Fellow miscuer Rashida Smith calls it “haunting and deeply satisfying.” And! Proceeds from this story go to the Leonard Pung Memorial Scholarship.
• Eliza Hirsch’s “A Song for the Season” is at Cast of Wonders in audio form. It’s a story of love and tragedy in a village setting.
• “Logic and Magic in the Time of the Boat Lift” by Cat Rambo (with Ben Burgis) is available in word form at Giganotosaurus and audio word form at Podcastle. Paraconsistent logic, oracular nuns, and were-gators in 1980s Miami!
• Cat Rambo also has an audio reprint, “Amid the Words of War,” available at Drabblecast. It’s a story about an alien POW turned sex worker.
• And E. Lily Yu introduces us to a new treatment for grief in “Loss, with Chalk Diagrams,” up at Eclipse Online.
Amazing, right? I can’t wait to see what we get up to in April!
