LIGHTSPEED is an online science fiction and fantasy magazine. In its pages, you will find science fiction: from near-future, sociological soft SF, to far-future, star-spanning hard SF--and fantasy: from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales.
This month, we have original science fiction by Saundra Mitchell ("Starfall") and Sam J. Miller ("We Are the Cloud"), along with SF reprints from the new anthologies: MONSTROUS AFFECTIONS (Holly Black's "Ten Rules for Being an Intergalactic Smuggler (the Successful Kind)") and the THE END IS NOW (Tananarive Due's "Herd Immunity"). Plus, we have original fantasy by Sarah Pinsker ("No Lonely Seafarer") and Matthew Hughes ("Under the Scab"), and fantasy reprints by Aliette de Bodard ("Prayers of Forges and Furnaces") and Rhys Hughes ("Eternal Horizon"). All that, and of course we also have our usual assortment of author and artist spotlights, along with feature interviews with authors Mary Robinette Kowal and Diana Gabaldon. For our ebook readers, we also have a reprint of the novella "Giliad" by Gregory Feeley, and novel excerpts from THE BROTHERS CABAL by Jonathan L. Howard and THE NECROMANCER CANDLE by Randy McCharles.
