LIGHTSPEED is an online science fiction and fantasy magazine. In its pages, you will find science fiction: from near-future, sociological soft SF, to far-future, star-spanning hard SF--and fantasy: from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales.


Welcome to LIGHTSPEED's 112th issue! This month's cover art is from Galen Dara. It's illustrating a new fantasy short by Brooke Bolander, "A Bird, a Song, a Revolution," that blends the Neolithic with the post-apocalyptic. We also have a new Weird Western short from Rajan Khanna ("All In"), and fantasy reprints by Micah Dean Hicks ("Flight of the Crow Boys") and Kiini Ibura Salaam ("Desire"). Our original science fiction shorts include a very unique prison experience run by some very unique artificial intelligences in Adam-Troy Castro's new short, "Sacrid's Pod." In our other original short, Jenny Rae Rappaport writes about motherhood and time paradoxes in "The Answer That You Are Seeking." We also have SF reprints by Ramez Naam ("Exile from Extinction") and Seanan McGuire ("Hello, Hello"). All that, and of course we also have our usual assortment of author spotlights, along with our book and media review columns. Our feature interview this month is with debut novelist Lisa Bradley. And if you're reading our ebook edition, we also have an exclusive excerpt from Annalee Newitz's new novel THE FUTURE OF ANOTHER TIMELINE.
