BCS #202 is out today, featuring a returning BCS author and a new one.
Ann Chatham (“Pilgrims” in BCS #141 and podcast BCS 120; “A Marble for the Drowning River” in BCS #94 and podcast BCS 082) traverses a midnight encounter with a Hunt in “Mortal Eyes,” with strange woodland beings demanding to give a repayment.
Luke Nolby offers “The Nature of Ghosts and the Fate of Shadows,” crossing between memories and reality as the past looks to take a toll on the present.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode is BCS 179: Mortal Eyes, the Ann Chatham story. It’s guest-narrated by Michael J. DeLuca, narrator of past BCS podcast episodes including BCS 174: Whale-Oil by Sylvia V. Linsteadt and BCS 168: Foxfire, Foxfire by Yoon Ha Lee.
The From the Archives story with BCS #202 is “Drawn Up From Deep Places” by Gemma Files, from BCS #159, another tale of past and dream impacting the present and reality, not unlike “The Nature of Ghosts and the Fate of Shadows.”
All behind a new crop of our likewise sky-bound new cover art for early summer: “High Above the Savannah” by Martin Ende.
