BCS #185 is out today, with two fantastically monstrous stories for Halloween, a strange-world guest-narrated podcast, and From the Archives a story and podcast that’s one of the shortest and scariest ever in BCS.
Ian McHugh (“Cold, Cold War” in BCS #123, “Red Dirt” in BCS #58, both monstrous) returns to BCS with “Demons Enough,” a tale of a society pushed to extremes by a monstrous threat.
Cory Skerry (“Sinking Among Lilies” in BCS #92, a tale of a monster-hunter facing vicious creatures and people) returns to BCS with “Bloodless,” a tale of a monster-hunter who may be monstrous herself.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast is BCS 161: Unearthly Landscape by a Lady, Rebecca Campbell’s tale of a young woman’s exposure to strange other worlds, guest-narrated by actor and playwright Liz Duffy Adams..
The From the Archives story with BCS #185 is a special one: “Father’s Kill” by Christopher Green, from BCS #24 and podcast BCS 022. It won the 2009 Aurealis Award for Best Australian Fantasy Story. It’s one of the shortest and scariest pieces ever in BCS. Turn off the lights and lock the door (all three locks!).
