The final two stories from and bonus podcast from BCS #200, our celebratory double-issue, are live today!
Catherynne M. Valente offers “The Limitless Perspective of Master Peek, or, the Luminescence of Debauchery,” a lushly and wryly voiced tale of a craftsperson driven to ascend in society on their own terms.
Yoon Ha Lee (“Foxfire, Foxfire” in BCS Science-Fantasy Month 3 & podcast BCS 168, “Two to Leave” in BCS 174 & podcast BCS 151, among many others) returns to BCS with “Shadow’s Weave,” a tale of a mercenary trying to restore her companion’s shadow.
The bonus BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode is BCS 177: Shadow’s Weave, the Yoon Ha Lee tale. It’s guest-narrated by Tina Connolly, BCS author and narrator of past podcast episodes including BCS 170: A Salvaging of Ghosts by Aliette de Bodard and BCS 150: The Punctuality Machine, Or, A Steampunk Libretto by Bill Powell.
