BCS #193 is out today, featuring a returning BCS author and a new one, with stories about the impact of faith.
Dean Wells (“Evensong, Having Been Answered” in BCS #139 and podcast BCS 119, “When Averly Fell from the Sky” in BCS #103 and podcast BCS 088,“To the Gods of Time and Engines, a Gift” in BCS #80 and podcast BCS 071) returns to BCS with another story in his ‘Clockwork Mechanicals’ series: “And the Blessing of the Angels Came Upon Them,” a bleak tale of otherworldly colonization testing the colonists’ faith. Andrew F. Sullivan offers “Salt Circles,” a tale likewise of faith under bleak crisis.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode is BCS 167: And the Blessing of the Angels Came Upon Them, the Dean Wells story.
The From the Archives story with BCS #193 is “The Sacrifice Pit” by Brian Dolton, from all the way back in BCS #16 and podcast BCS 014, a story of faith under crisis not unlike “Salt Circles” or “And the Blessing of the Angels Came Upon Them.”
All behind another crop of our new cover art, “Plains of Another World” by Leon Tukker.
