BCS #183, our Seventh Anniversary Double-Issue, is out today!
It includes “The Bride Doll,” a Lord Yamada tale by Richard Parks (“The Sorrow of Rain” in BCS #157, “Cherry Blossoms on the River of Souls” in BCS #131, and ten other stories), and “Geometries of Belonging” by Rose Lemberg, set in the same world as her BCS stories “Grandmother-nai-Leylit’s Cloth of Winds” in BCS #175 and “Held Close in Syllables of Light” in BCS #80.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode will be BCS 159 The Sons of Vincente by I.L. Heisler, released next week.
The ‘From the Archives’ story is “A Place to Stand” by Grace Seybold, in BCS #89 and podcast BCS 079, a tale of shifting time-frames not unlike “The Four Schools.” All behind new cover art for our seventh anniversary: “Sundown” by Feliks Grzesiczek.
