Clarkesworld and More Freebies

More free genre entertainment, including the latest issue of Clarkesworld Magazine (which always rocks!). And a new monthly issue of Quantum Muse (check it out).  There's also great audio fiction from Escape Pod and Clarkesworld, more e-books, old time radio, a classic horror comic, and a couple of westerns for variety.

Be sure to check SF Signal for links that may have missed here and for any opinionated people, be sure to weigh in on Disney's acquisition of the Star Wars franchise at Beam Me Up.

"(To See the Other) Whole Against the Sky" by E. Catherine Tobler.
     "Close your eyes. As you travel farther away from me, your ship becoming little more than a pinprick of light amid infinite pinpricks of light, I want you to remember me as I was the first time you saw me, in the field. The day I glowed."
"Aquatica" by Maggie Clark.
     "When Host laughed, her esca wriggled, and the gills behind her pectoral fins vented hard enough to stir up the silt. Organ tumbled in the waste-stream’s wake, but kept one tiny black eye fixed on her bobbing, bioluminescent beacon—the first he had seen in six turns of the current along the foreign reef."
"Everything Must Go" by Brooke Wonders.
      "The house at 1414 waits for new families to move in, and sometimes they do, but more often than not the owners abandon their property. Linden Drive grows increasingly desolate, and 1414 clings to the warmth and safety of its inhabitants, sure that it is too well-loved to be left behind."

Samantha Berg and the Petrifying Pipelines by James Turnbull. Alternative.
     "Has an old friend become a new foe? Why are teenage girls going missing? And can Berg keep her electricity fairy happy? Find out all this, and more!"
 Grasshopper Dreams by Robert Hunter. Alternative.
     "Noses were crinkled, then relaxed. In death as in life Pansy Graham was preceded by a clinging aura Eurydice Wyndham Pease, known as Dicey, identified as the yellow bar soap provided by the Daughters of Milo. That their charge might be dead had yet to appear on the cork board down at the Red and White, where funeral home postings reported who was dead and who wasn’t."
 Transgression by John Henson Webb. Alternative.
     "Some things should not be forgotten. Not all nightmares vanish in the morning; not all nursery rhymes are pleasant."
 OZ by Michele Dutcher. Science Fiction.
