This is the usual roundup of my semi-daily recommendations of speculative poetry and fiction by diverse authors! Follow me on Twitter to see them every day – I’m @bogiperson.
A lot of cool stuff this past week, and 3 new authors in the series out of 5. I continue to be amazed how many great writers there are out there.
I also think a 20% percentage of non-free stuff is working out well (this is a recent change) – there is still plenty of free stuff you can read, but this way I manage to spotlight lesser-known/harder to find work that also gets reprinted sometimes 😀 (Who will be the next publisher to reprint one of my recs? I think the first one was Apex!)
Also check out the March-April roundup I made last week.
The week’s recommendations:
May 18: (Novella) (Non-free) Dangerous Space by Kelley Eskridge, in Dangerous Space, Aqueduct Press 2007.
May 19: (Flash story) The Egg by S.B. Divya in Nature Futures, Feb 2015.
May 20: (Short story) By Degrees and Dilatory Time by S. L. Huang, May 2015.
May 21: (Poem) Let me show you you by Dominik Parisien in Stone Telling, Feb 2013.
May 22: (Short story) The Man Who Walked Home by James Tiptree, Jr. in Ten Thousand Light-Years from Home, 1972. Reprinted on the Baen Ebooks website.
Supporters of the series this week:
* A.C. Buchanan, who sent an ebook reviewer copy of Liquid City. Thank you!!
You can support the series by getting me stuff from my Amazon wishlist – I cannot accept monetary payment off-campus, so I don’t have a Patreon or anything similar. I also very much appreciate reviewer copies, especially print review copies of short story anthologies, or diverse SFF novels. You can look at my reviewer copies policy before sending things!
(…and yes, you can always buy me food from my Amazon wishlist, it is very helpful and I eat it with relish 😀 I should probably put more food on the list, it seems to be a popular option!)
