  1. Aphelion #177.17 – September 2013

    When I landed on Bishop 13, one of the manmade moons of Mars and therefore Corporation property and under strict Corp laws, I was prepared for all the usual bribes and red tape that means. I had the bribe credits ready, all my paperwork up to date and in order, and my ship in pretty good condition, which is to say, meeting all the absolute minimum requirements to dock on the tiny satellite.

    – “Blue Plate Special”, by Kate Thornton

  2. Beneath Ceaseless Skies #130 – September 19, 2013

    Constant Sterry rode almost doubled over the neck of his horse, his fists clutching leather reins and his cheek continually brushed by the feather-touch of the mane. Slowly and steadily the horse bore him through the woods, for the pain in Constant’s gut grew insupportable with the jostling of anything more than a walk.

    – “The Black Veil”, by M. Bennardo

  3. Buzzy Mag has an urban fantasy short story from Davyne DeSye

    Come in, come in, and welcome! See something you like? Looking for anything in particular? Oh, no problem, no problem. Just look, and let me know if I can help with anything.

    Yes, that is a fine piece. Retrieved and fixed that one up myself. Yes, I do my own work. Learned the trade from my father and he from his father before him. That’s right. Sort of a hereditary business. My boy’s not really interested, but my daughter—she’s only seven—she seems to have the interest and, what is more, the gift. It isn’t everybody who can spot shattered hopes and scattered dreams and tell the worthwhile ones from the flotsam, but she has got a promising eye.

  1. In the audio line, the most recent BBC Drama of the Week, “Exuberant”, may be of associational interest. “Exuberant” is about a pair of rival meteorite hunters, both semi-deranged by their obsession; quite funny. The BBC Dramas of the week are only available for one week, but “Exuberant” still has five days of availability left.
