BCS #218 is out today, featuring forest-setting tales from a returning BCS author and a new one, a guest-narrated podcast, and new cover art.
Marissa Lingen (“Out of the Rose Hills” in BCS #173, “Armistice Day” in BCS #117 and podcast BCS 101, “The Six Skills of Madame Lumiere” in BCS #46, among others) returns to BCS with “Out of the Woods,” a tale of outlaws, resistance, and the decision of whether to take action.
Margaret Killjoy offers “Men of the Ashen Morrow,” another tale set in the forest and likewise featuring personal relationships and duty.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode is BCS 189: Out of the Woods, the Marissa Lingen story of outlaws, relationships, and choices. It’s guest-narrated by Folly Blaine, narrator of past BCS podcasts including BCS 186: The Uncarved Heart by Evan Dicken and BCS 171: The Mountains His Crown by Sarah Pinsker.
We’re also giving away a copy of BCS author Cat Rambo’s new short fiction collection Neither Here Nor There on the BCS Twitter. Details are here.
The From the Archives story with BCS #218 is “Sightwolf” by Erin Hoffman from BCS #72, a story of decisions that take place in a forest setting, not unlike “Out of the Woods” and “Men of the Ashen Morrow.”
All behind new cover art befitting the nature setting of these stories: “Source” by Florent Llamas.
