s_c_baker wrote:I have two stories out this month (with a foreign-language reprint on the way on the 15th, supposedly).

Story one is original: "Just Another Night at the Abandoned Draft Bar and Grill." You can read this story in Galaxy's Edge, where it shares a table of contents with George RR Martin ( wotf015 ) and Kij Johnson ( wotf015 wotf015 ), among other luminaries. AND Tina Gower, also a contest winner (v29) is in there, too! (For extra bonus points, they actually spelled my name and story title right this time around.)

Story two is a reprint of "Love and Relativity," which appeared in Nature Physics last year. This story's now up in FFO with an original illustration. (It also happens to be the story that's going to be reprinted into Croatian on May 15th. If anyone you know happens to be Croatian.)


Awesome, Stewart!

Well done Stewart. Your career is on a roll now.

And I have a friend with family ties to Croatia, so let me know the details when the translation comes out. wotf008

First of all, congrats Stewart, Galaxies Edge is impressive. AND I LOVE that story, it's brilliant! wotf010

Also, congrats to anyone else I'm missing, because I'm sure I am. 2016 has exploded for all of us. wotf026

And one more thing...AE Micro 7 is now live on the site, and it has one of my stories in it! wotf053

You can read it here, and my story is called "Our Place Among the Stars".

Nicely done, Emily! Good stuff.

New report for me. My time travel short story, "Blink Twice," is available now in podcast form at The Overcast. It was originally published in Perihelion. So cool to hear it out loud! (Warning, a little bit of language).

There's also an afterword from me, talking about how the story came to be. Never expected to have to learn how to do audio recording for this whole writing thing!
