Support your nonlocal author

I've mentioned before writers are part of a community and as such we should support each other. One way I support authors is with an ezine I founded with some writer friends in 2006. We publish short speculative fiction quarterly from authors all over the world. We have a new issue coming out February 28, 2011 some highlights of which include:

  • "The Untold Story of an Executioner" by Dawn Lloyd--a chilling tale about maybe the worst job ever
  • "End User" by A.L. Sirois--a horrific story with a character that definitely does not follow Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics
  • "Birth of a New Day" by Fredrick Obermeyer--a unique fantasy in which daybreak requires a special kind of midwife
  • "What Eats You" by Sara Kate Ellis--a near-future adventure involving role-playing and political correctness taken to the extreme
  • "Touch of Poison" by Jaelithe Ingold--a traditional fantasy in which a power struggle has a very unexpected outcome
