So I found out about Fabio Fernandes's new anthology project, Future Fire, via the Locus discussion group. Here’s a description of his project:

We are still at war in many places around the world, but something is a-changing: the socialist Second World has ended almost 25 years ago, and the First World and the Third World are, if not changing places, suffering major alterations in their structure. I think it’s past time we discuss that in our fiction, and what fiction suits best the discussion of the zeitgeist, our times and the times to come, than science fiction?

We are raising funds to publish a special issue/anthology of colonialism-themed speculative fiction from outside the first-world viewpoint, co-edited by Fabio Fernandes and published by The Future Fire.

If you'd like to donate to make this anthology a reality you can do so through Peerbacker. It's a great cause and has the makings of a great anthology.

Fellow CW alum DJ Muir has a new story out at Strange Horizons. I have fond memories of The Fourth Board from workshop and I'm excited to see it in print:

Marie Brennan's fourth and (so far) final Onyx Court novel is out, and it's set in the Victorian period. (Hurray!) For those of us fond of London fairies and Victorians, I think our reading list is set.

I'm terrible at descriptions, so I'll let PW do it for me:

With Fate Conspire

Gifted storyteller and world-builder Brennan returns to the Onyx Court, a faery city that coexists with London, in her fourth historical fantasy (after 2010's A Star Shall Fall). As the Onyx Court is threatened by 19th-century advances in technology, the faeries and humans increasingly come into conflict. Eliza O'Malley is caught between the two worlds, both of which are often cruel and indifferent to her desperate search for her childhood friend, Owen, who was captured by the faeries seven years before. Unless Eliza can find Dead Rick, the dog-man who betrayed them, Owen will be lost to the faery kingdom forever. Series readers and fans of the Tam Lin myth will be captivated by this complex and vibrant depiction of a magical Victorian era.

There's a very flattering review of "Strange Case" over at Fantasy Literature. I appreciate the fact that Terry Weyna also reviews Goss's "Folkroots" column and Bear's and Witcover's review columns. RoF supplies some very thoughtful non-fiction, but it's often overlooked in people's discussion of the magazine.

My anti-Twilight story(?) "Remains" just went live at AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review.

I was very glad to publish this one, given that I'd made my entire CW class suffer through the first Twilight film as part of my research. My sadism has born fruit.

For the record I've decided to start using my real name for my Serious stories and "Von Carr" as the byline for my "Woo! Fun!" stories. Hopefully, this will let readers who really hate Tales in Which Everyone Dies know which ones to avoid.
