A lover wends through city canals and told tales in a living boat to woo a golden woman….

These and other awe-inspiring fantasy stories await in The Best of Beneath Ceaseless Skies Online Magazine, Year Five, a new anthology of seventeen stories from Beneath Ceaseless Skies, the Hugo Award and World Fantasy Award-finalist online magazine that Locus online credits with “revive(ing)… secondary-world fantasy as a respectable subgenre of short fiction, raising it from the midden of disdain.”
