Piece of a Book: “A Body is for Driving” by Matthew Sanborn Smith

Hey, Folks! The Lords of SF Signal have allowed me to post a story from my new collection The Dritty Doesen in order to get your Matthew Sanborn Smith juices flowing. (They’re easy to identify as they flow from the nose.) So here, with two more sentences of ado, is my story “A Body is for Driving.” The Dritty Doesen struggles to contain this and eleven other of my least reasonable stories, along with behind the scenes info concerning their creation. The story you’re about to read first appeared in Grant Stone’s nifty zine, b0t!

Pay What You Want for Phoenix Pick’s Book of the Month: THE MUTANT SEASON by Karen Haber and Robert Silverberg

Phoenix Pick has a new pay-what-you-want eBook special ready to go for all you voracious readers out there: The Mutant Season by Karen Haber and Robert Silverberg!

About the book:

There are mutants living among us. People with golden yellow eyes, extraordinary powers and strange abilities. For centuries they have hidden themselves, fearing persecution. After rising tensions in recent decades, the mutants find new hope in the twenty-first century, with one of their own holding high political office.

But underlying prejudices are hard to eradicate completely. And even as the mutants find greater acceptance in society, a single event threatens to undo everything.

In 2017, the murder of a prominent politician sets off a series of events that will bring the mutants into direct conflict with “normal“ humans, and the world may never again be the same.

Free Fiction: “Supply Limited, Act Now” by Helen Marshall (From Her Collection GIFTS FOR THE ONE WHO COMES AFTER)

Today, we’re pleased to bring you a short story that appears in the Helen Marshall’s new collection from ChiZine, Gifts for the One Who Comes After . Helen’s work has been nominated for the Aurora Award from the Canadian Society of Science Fiction and Fantasy, the Bram Stoker Award from the Horror Writers Association, and the Sydney J. Bounds Award from the British Fantasy Society, which she won in 2013. This is just one of the many stories in the collection, which is described thusly:

Ghost thumbs. Microscopic dogs. One very sad can of tomato soup. Helen Marshall’s second collection offers a series of twisted surrealities that explore the legacies we pass on to our children. A son seeks to reconnect with his father through a telescope that sees into the past. A young girl discovers what lies on the other side of her mother’s bellybutton. Death’s wife prepares for a very special funeral. In Gifts for the One Who Comes After, Marshall delivers eighteen tales of love and loss that cement her as a powerful voice in dark fantasy and the New Weird. Dazzling, disturbing, and deeply moving.

Here’s Helen’s marvelous story…
