I helped kickstart this magazine so of course I had to review the first issue of it, that’s how it works right?
Let me start by squeeing about the cover. Please press it so you can see it in full size. The artist is Galen Dara, now there is someone to nominate for the Hugos next year! Seriously space unicorns now makes sense!
I listened to this as the podcast and I think part of the impact of the story had to do with Kate’s introduction and comments at the end. So I can recommend this format. As always Kate does a great job reading these stories – which she apparently do cold.
Because this is a short story it is hard to talk about it without spoiling it. So be warned.
I listened to Ponies on my way from work on the Rocket Talk podcast by tor.com. Which is a new show to me – one that I really like. They discuss interesting people and have cool guests on. Continue reading Ponies→
Crowdfunded project that I have supported among with many other people. The anthology gathers original fantasy and science fiction stories about diverse young adult protagonists. And they use the word diverse to cover a broad spectrum of genders, sexuality, ethnicity, ability and everything from neurotypical to protagonists that isn’t. The authors themself are also quite diverse.
This was definitely one of my favourite stories of the anthology. Helen is such a wonderful protagonist and I was sad when the story ended. Not because it was a sad ending, but because it ended. That’s what you want from a short story isn’t it?
