BCS #231 – Case, TeGrotenhuis, Beaulieu Archives, New Cover Art

Posted in: Cover Art, New Issues by Scott H. Andrews

BCS #231 is out today, featuring stories of protagonists questing against oppressive forces.

Stephen Case (“The Aeroliths” in BCS #212, “The Wizard’s House” in BCS #166, among many others) returns to BCS and the world of “Read This Quickly, For You Will Only Have a Moment...” from BCS #81 with “Deathspeaker,” in which a scholar advising a new monarch against a terrifying threat must leave her and seek answers elsewhere.

Jeremy A. TeGrotenhuis offers “The Broken Karwaneer,” a story of a fighter protagonist battling internal foes as she pursues external ones.

From the Archives with BCS #231 is “From the Spices of Sanandira” by Bradley P. Beaulieu, in BCS #70 and #71, a novelette that was the inspiration for his current hardcover novel series Song of Shattered Sands.

The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast is on a brief hiatus. In the meantime, peruse our episodes from earlier this year, including our five-hour audio novella BCS 200: A Portrait of the Desert in Personages of Power, guest-narrated by podcast and audiobook narrator, writer, and poet C.S.E. Cooney.

Posted in: BCS Audio Vault Podcast, Cover Art, New Issues by Scott H. Andrews

BCS #214 is out today, featuring a returning BCS author, a new one, new cover art, and a new episode of the BCS Audio Vault podcast.

Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam (“A Careful Fire” in BCS #184 and podcast BCS 160, “The Girl with Golden Hair” in BCS #176 and podcast BCS 153, and “Everything Beneath You” in BCS #164 and podcast BCS 142) returns with “The Orangery,” a story blending the mythic with characters fighting beyond role.

Priya Sridhar offers “The Jeweled Nawab Jungle Retreat,” a story of a character similarly fighting to break free of the role attributed to them.

The BCS Audio Vault podcast has a new episode BCS Audio Vault 026: Everything Beneath You by Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, from January 2015. It’s introduced by the author, explaining the very personal genesis of this story and some of its elements, including a boat, a dragon, and a lantern festival.

The From the Archives story with BCS #214 is “The Coffinmaker’s Love” by Alberto Yáñez in BCS #131, our Fifth Anniversary Double-Issue in October 2013.
