The final two stories from BCS #157, our Sixth Anniversary Double-Issue, and the bonus podcast are live on the BCS website today.

The stories include “Heaven Thunders The Truth” by multiple World Fantasy Award-winning author K.J. Parker and “Butterfly House” by Gwendolyn Clare.

The bonus podcast, BCS 136: The Moon Over Red Trees, is the Aliette de Bodard story from earlier in BCS #157, our Sixth Anniversary Double-Issue. It’s guest-narrated by Kate Baker, the podcast director and familiar voice of Clarkesworld magazine.

All four 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.

If you’d like to subscribe, now is a great time to do it. During our Sixth Anniversary Ebook Sale, buy a BCS ebook subscription or the new Best of BCS Year Five from and you’ll get a coupon for 30% off all BCS titles. But act soon; the sale ends next week!

Our two giveaways for signed Richard Parks Lord Yamada short story collections, one as paper book and one as audio book, have ended. But next week on Twitter, we will be giving away a signed hardback limited-edition K.J. Parker short story collection. Visit the link to see how you can enter.
