BCS #150 is out today! A special double-issue, in honor of our 150th issue.
It includes “The Manor of Lost Time,” a story of demonic imprisonment by Richard Parks, author of the Lord Yamada tales, and “The Inked Many,” a novelette by Adam Callaway set in the Ars Lacuna world of strange ink and writings that has been featured in his many other BCS stories.
Plus “The Black Waters of Lethe,” a short piece of maddening isolation by Oliver Buckram, and “The Unborn God,” a tale of strange discovery and quest by returning BCS author Stephen Case.
The Callaway and Case stories won’t be released on the website until next week, but they are available now in the ebook, on Kindle and at WeightlessBooks.com.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode is BCS 130: The Black Waters of Lethe, Oliver Buckram’s short tale of maddening isolation, guest-narrated by Norm Sherman, Editor and Producer of The Drabblecast, a three-time winner of the Parsec Award for Best Magazine Podcast.
The ‘From the Archives’ story is “In the Palace of the Jade Lion” by Richard Parks, another non-Lord Yamada tale of his, from BCS #100, another milestone issue. It was named to the Locus Recommended Reading list for 2012.
We are also giving away a gorgeous hardback copy of Brandon Sanderson’s Hugo Award-winning novella The Emperor’s Soul, signed to BCS by Mr. Sanderson. Visit this giveaway post to enter.
