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 C.C. Finlay (“Time Bomb Time”) and Seanan McGuire (“The Myth of Rain”), along with SF reprints by Annie Bellet (“Goodnight Earth,” from The End Has Come) and Sean Williams (“Ghosts of the Fall”).
Plus, we have original fantasy by Helena Bell (“Mouth”) and Matthew Hughes (“The Blood of a Dragon”), and fantasy reprints by Merrie Haskell (“Sun’s East, Moon’s West”) and R.C. Loenen-Ruiz (“Breaking the Spell”).
All that, and of course we also have our usual assortment of author and artist spotlights, along with our latest book review column and a feature interview with award-winning author James Morrow.
For our ebook readers, we also have “The Mill” by Paul Di Filippo as our novella reprint, along with novel excerpts from THE WATER KNIFE by Paolo Bacigalupi and MAGONIA by Maria Dahvana Headley.
