BCS #219 is out today, featuring character-centered struggles from two returning BCS authors and a guest-narrated podcast.
Grace Seybold (“A Place to Stand” in BCS #89 and podcast BCS 079; “Unrest” in BCS #12 and podcast BCS 012) returns to BCS with “Gravity’s Exile,” a tale of a solo trek up a vertical world derailed by locals and invaders.
Jeremy Sim (“What Pada-Sara Means to the Elephant” in BCS #206) offers “The Last Dinosaur Rider of Benessa County,” where a character trying to overcome obsolete prospects must break free of entanglements from his past.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast episode is BCS 190: Men of the Ashen Morrow by Margaret Killjoy, from BCS #218. It’s guest-narrated by M.K. Hobson, who has narrated past BCS Podcast episodes such as BCS 182: Abere and the Poisoner by Jonathan Edelstein, BCS 176: Laws of Night and Silk by Seth Dickinson and BCS 166: The Three Dancers of Gizari by Tamara Vardomskaya.
