BCS #205 is out today, featuring a returning BCS author and a new one.
Raphael Ordoñez (“The Scale-Tree” in BCS #178, “Day of the Dragonfly” in BCS #165, “At the Edge of the Sea” in BCS #144 and podcast BCS 125, and “Misbegotten” in BCS #113 and podcast BCS 097, among others) returns to BCS with “Salt and Sorcery,” a new story set in a similar strange world as many of his previous BCS stories.
Samantha Murray offers “A Deeper Green,” a tale of duty and sacrifice and society.
The From the Archives story with BCS #205 is “Breathing Sunshine” by Garth Upshaw, from BCS #64 and podcast BCS 056, a tale of unlikely companions in a drive to help others, not unlike “Salt and Sorcery.”
All behind new cover art: “Tortoise Caravan” by Marek Hlavaty:
