The final three stories from BCS #131, our Fifth Anniversary Double-Issue, (and the free ebooks) are live on the website today.
The stories includes “Walls of Skin, Soft as Paper,” an Ars Lacuna story by Adam Callaway that’s a companion piece to his excellent “Walls of Paper, Soft as Skin”” from BCS #73, and BCS debuts by Rebecca Gomez Farrell and by Naim Kabir, which Locus Online called “A poignant account of a repressed people in search of liberation — Recommended.”
All five of the stories in this issue were available two weeks ago for BCS ebook subscribers. Subscribers get every issue a week before the website, delivered directly to their email or e-reader or smart phone.

The ‘From the Archives’ story with BCS #131 is “The Sword of Loving Kindness ” by Chris Willrich, our very first story, from five years ago. We just gave away a signed copy of Chris’s new novel The Scroll of Years, featuring those same delightful rouges Gaunt and Bone, and we’ll be giving away another one on the BCS Twitter next Wednesday, Oct 16.
