We’re in the home stretch to the end of Year 4! How did that happen already?
We continue to hear a lot of good response to our #BlackSpecFic report. We’ll talk about that more later this month, but for now, make sure you check out the new black speculative fiction magazine Fiyah.
We’ll also be kicking off our Year 5 drive soon; keep an eye out for that.
On to the issue! We have three terrific stories this month, opening with the return of Malon Edwards to Fireside, with his creepy techno-zombie story Delta Child. Then we have another Fireside alum, Sarah Gailey, with her story Homesick, a sci fi horror piece about longing and regret. And then we have a great story selected by guest editor Daniel José Older, Emergency Management Protocol by C. C. S. Ryan. It’s a disaster story. It’s a breakup story. It’s a great story.
Thanks, as always, for reading!
