Lightspeed Magazine, Issue 70 (March 2016)

by Andy DuncanCraig DeLancey John Joseph Adams and others

Publication Date: 01/03/2016


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.

This month, we have original science fiction by Caroline M. Yoachim ("Welcome to the Medical Clinic at the Interplanetary Relay Station") and Craig DeLancey ("RedKing"), along with SF reprints by Timons Esaias ("The Mars Convention") and Aliette de Bodard ("The Waiting Stars").
Plus, we have original fantasy by Rich Larson ("Sparks Fly") and Marie Vibbert ("Michael Doesn't Hate His Mother"), and fantasy reprints by Andy Duncan ("The Premature Burials") and Seanan McGuire ("Rat-Catcher"). All that, and of course we also have our usual assortment of author spotlights, along with our book and media review columns and a roundtable interview on the Star Wars canon. For our ebook readers, we also have an ebook-exclusive reprint Mark W. Tiedemann's novella, "Miller's Wife." And for our novel excerpt this month, we're proud to present a preview of Hugh Howey's novel, SHIFT, out now from our editor's new book line for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, John Joseph Adams Books.

Seanan McGuire

Seanan McGuire is the author of the Hugo, Nebula, Alex and Locus Award-winning Wayward Children series, the October Daye series, the InCryptid series, and other works.

She also writes darker fiction as Mira Grant. Seanan lives in Seattle with her cats, a vast collection of creepy dolls, horror movies, and sufficient books to qualify her as a fire hazard.

She won the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and in 2013 became the first person to appear five times on the same Hugo ballot.

Aliette de Bodard

Aliette de Bodard is one of the Writers of the Future, has won two Nebula Awards, a Locus Award and a BSFA Award. She has also been a finalist for the Hugo, Sturgeon, and Tiptree Awards, making her one of our most-lauded contemporary fiction writers.

A writer by night, by day she is a qualified engineer, specialising in Applied Mathematics. She lives in Paris, in a flat with more computers than she really needs.
