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 Daniel José Older (“Dust”) and Marie Vibbert (“Jupiter Wrestlerama”), along with SF reprints by Zoran Zivkovic (“The Puzzle”) and Rebecca Ore (“Scarey Rose in Deep History”). Plus, we have original fantasy by Steve Hockensmith (“The Herd”) and Megan Kurashige (“The Quality of Descent”), and fantasy reprints by Kelly Link (“Water Off a Black Dog’s Back”) and Ysabeau S. Wilce (“The Biography of a Bouncing Boy Terror!”). All that, and of course we also have our usual assortment of author and artist spotlights, along with feature interviews with bestselling author James S. A. Corey and physicist Lawrence Krauss. For our ebook readers, our ebook-exclusive novella reprint is “Jesus and the Eightfold Path” by Lavie Tidhar. For novel excerpts this month, we’ve got a sneak peek at Paolo Bacigalupi’s new novel, THE DOUBT FACTORY, along with an excerpt from ANCILLARY SWORD — Ann Leckie’s sequel to her Nebula, Clarke, and Hugo award-winning debut novel ANCILLARY JUSTICE. Plus, we have an excerpt from the new Wild Cards mosaic novel, WILD CARDS: LOWBALL, from contributor Carrie Vaughn.
