BCS #168 is out today, featuring a returning BCS author and a new one, with dark stories of city perseverance.
KJ Kabza (“The Leafsmith in Love” in BCS #39 and our Ceaseless Steam anthology) returns to BCS with “Steady on Her Feet,” a dark story of a hardscrabble protagonist fighting to better herself.
Alyc Helms offers “A Screech of Gulls,” and equally dark tale of struggle and perseverance, which is also this issue’s BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode, BCS 145: A Screech of Gulls.
The From the Archives story with BCS #168 is “The Tinyman and Caroline” by Sarah L. Edwards, from BCS #17, an equally dark and grimy city tale of a character struggling, not unlike “Steady on Her Feet” or “A Screech of Gulls.”
All behind a new angle of our new cover art: “Floating Town” by Takeshi Oga.
