• At Paizo: "The Irregulars - Chapter Four: Out with a Bang" by Neal F. Litherland. Fantasy.
     "They moved silent as breath through the empty tunnels, tucking charges into crevices and butting them against wooden support beams. The devil's scent of saltpeter made the caverns smell like Hell, ready to burn with a single, ragged spark. Fairy lights danced in the deeper darkness where the Lieutenant and Trilaina licked wicks and set fuses, making certain everything was perfect."

• At Tor.Com: "The Ink Readers of Doi Saket" by Thomas Olde Heuvelt.
     "People send their dreams and wishes floating down the Mae Ping River with the hope that those dreams will be captured, read and come true. It is a surprise what some wish for and why. One can never know what’s inside someone’s heart—what they really truly want, and those dreams sometimes reveal our true selves."
