Two novelettes from BCS have been named finalists for the Nebula Awards!
“Blood Grains Speak Through Memories” by Jason Sanford, from BCS #195 in Science-Fantasy Month 3, and “The Orangery” by Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, in BCS #214.
Congratulations, Jason and Bonnie! “Blood Grains Speak Through Memories” is a story of family, duty, and loss, both personal and world, in a cool science-fantasy setting with technology and magic. “The Orangery” uses a more mythic conceit to examine duty, relationship dynamics, and loss.
Both great novelettes, and indicative of the breadth you’ll find in BCS: anything from science-fantasy to epic fantasy to steampunk, historical paranormal, Weird West, and unique mythic secondary worlds, all with a focus on the characters.
