Monday Free Genre Items

 Lots of great stuff that I'm too tired to describe.






Fiction
• At Author's Site: "The Life And Deaths of Rachel Long" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. Fantasy.
    "The fifth time she died, she took the guitar with her. She went down in a haze of smoke and ash, bullets and flames.  And this time, not even the music remained."

• At Black Gate: "Seeker of Fortune" By David Evan Harris. Fantasy.
     "John Sherman tipped his Forty-Niners cap back so he could press his face against the window, tilting his eyes downward. The cliff-face was not quite sheer, so that it was barely visible past the tracks, plunging at least two-hundred feet to a rocky base. His belly tightened as he thought of her, the way that fury could suddenly transform that beautiful face."

• At Strange Horizons: "A to Z Theory" by Toh EnJoe.
       "Nowadays, this amazing theorem is held to be incorrect, in terms of even elementary mathematics. Hardly anybody ever even thinks about it anymore, because it’s just plain wrong."

• At The Twilight Zone Network: "The Chaser" by John Collier. [via SFFaudio]
      "Alan, a lovelorn man, desperate for the object of his affections to return them, visits a queer chemist for a solution"

• At Cast of Wonders: "Now Cydonia" by Rick Kennett.
     "Cadet Cy De Gerch bounced forward into the desert darkness, raised her arms in a defensive posture and, as best as a fourteen year could, barked, “Halt! Who goes there!” There was no one there. There never was."

• At The WiFiles: "Sin City" by William Campbell.
     "God is hosting the monthly deity poker night. Everyone could make it for once, which is a rarity. In December God never shows up. He has to prepare for Jesus’ birthday bash, so it’s understandable. Satan missed a couple times this year because it’s such a long trip from the deep south, but we don’t miss him much"

Flash Fiction
  • At Daily Science Fiction: "Neighbours" by Rob Butler. 
  • At Every Day Fiction: "Cannath’s Coins" by Jude-Marie Green. Fantasy.

• At Gypsy Audio: "The Blackburn Gaslight Adventures-Arc 2 part 3 Arachnophobia" by A. J. Clarkson.

• At PodCastle: "Miniature 75: Doctor Diablo Goes Through The Motions" by Saladin Ahmed.
     "So here I am again, sitting at a twelve-person steel table, going through the motions. The Society of Supercriminals’ new headquarters is impressive but not comfortable. You’d think that Overlord, with his ill-gotten dictator-industrialist billions, could afford some padding for these damn chairs. But as my Tío Cesar would say, assholes never shit flowers."

• At SFFaudio: "The Status Civilization" by Robert Sheckley. Science Fiction.
