So, here’s the deal. Occasionally, I’m going to give you links to stuff I’ve been reading online. Stories I’ve liked, of course, and ones available for free. And I’m going to mostly stick to “smaller names” or newer writer’s works. Let’s face it, I love Ken Liu’s stories, but so do most people. Those aren’t so hard to find.
My first story is by an author I think we’ll be seeing more and more of (full disclosure: Cory is an online acquaintance of mine, although we’ve never met IRL). His story “Breathless in the Deep” is online at Lightspeed Magazine. It’s creepy and sublime. I hope you enjoy it. I did.
