T. G. I. Free Friday Fiction

Some quite cool stuff today including some good flash fiction, podcasts and fan audio, ongoing serials, Weekly episodes of Escape Pod and Pseudopod (one of the best reasons to look forward to fridays), some very good fiction - including a pair from two of my many favorite eZines, and today's highlighted story is "The Lamp at the Turning" by E. Lily Yu. Published at the well-respected literary magazine The Kenyon Review, this is an interesting short story by a future big-name writer.

Today's illustration is from the fan audio "Mad Max: Tomorrow's Road"

@The Kenyon Review: "The Lamp at the Turning" by E. Lily Yu. Speculative Fiction.
"For ten years the streetlamp on the corner of Cooyong and Boolee kept vigil with the other lamps along the road. They were surrogate moons for an age when the moon itself was too distant and dim to guide travelers in the night, and they performed their duties faithfully and with pride in their high purpose."
