BCS #147 is out today, returning to the dark world of a previous BCS author and venturing to the one of a new one, plus a podcast guest-narrated by a Hugo Award finalist.
E. Catherine Tobler (“Artificial Nocturne” in BCS #126, “Lady Marmalade” in BCS #98, and two others) returns to her dark circus world of those above stories with “We, As One, Trailing Embers,” a very dark tale of complex existence. Carrie Patel debuts in BCS with “Here Be Monsters,” whose narrator may not be as alone in solitude as it seems.
BCS 127: We, As One, Trailing Embers is also the audio fiction podcast episode with BCS #147, guest-narrated by BCS author, podcast narrator, and current Hugo Award finalist for Best Novel, Ann Leckie.
The ‘From the Archives’ story with BCS #147 is “When Averly Fell from the Sky” by Dean Wells, from BCS #103; one of his BCS stories set in his dark and interestingly galactic alternate steampunk world, with a similarly isolated and gruesome feel not unlike h “We, As One, Trailing Embers.”
Next issue, another returning BCS author, another new one, and another guest-narrated podcast! Plus new cover art...
