Kjartan writes in with a request to SF Signal’s resourceful readers:
Hi there, good people of the Internets!
I need your help. I have been given the task of finding a short story to translate for a small sf magazine in a foreign language. For each issue they have a theme and previously that theme has been religion, magic, games, or music, and the next issue will use ‘the body’ or simply ‘body’ as its theme. So far so good, the only problem is, I’m having a hard time finding good short stories (max 5000 words) about the body, or using the body as a central piece of the plot. Preferably stories that are online in one way or another, but that is not a requirement.
Can anyone help out?
