Two Poems by Alexandra Seidel

Her Mother’s Bees by Alexandra Seidel A girl covered in nothing but a scarf of a thousand thousand bees and the bees feasting on her like they would on a flower extracting nectar from her pores, her scented skin the buzzing lifts the air; it floats and settles around your head like a cauldron, upside …

“A Reason to Fear Life, a Reason to Crave Death” by Andrew Kaye

I. A bitter wind whipped around Ortega’s body, dusting him with a flurry of ash. He cursed. The words were lost, drowned in the whirr of stabilizers and the whine of steam turbines. Ortega drew his coat in tighter, pulled his scarf up over his face. Another, stronger gust caused the freighter to lurch, and …

Blindfold Taste Test with Alex Irvine

What is your favorite food? The cheeseburger. What was your most memorable meal? One that comes to mind is an epic feast with a bunch of Del Rey and Random House people at Nobu in San Diego. The ceviche… the Kobe beef slices over hot rocks… oh God. What is the most unusual thing you’ve …

“Fish out of Water” by Deborah Fitchett

Saturday, June 26, 2pm I spent the morning on the computer and found three websites the wizard might be interested in. He asked me why I’d only found three and what else I’d been doing, and what sort of a witch will I turn out to be if I can’t remember what I’ve done just …

“The Last Patrol” by Tara Barnett

When my hands are in you turning that ancient wheel and we become one body moving above abandoned streets I am more than whole. I am more. I drink of your twisted engine and see through your wicked lights everything that may be seen in this cold rust city. We are the patrol in half …

“Fastening” by Patricia Russo

“It’s time to fasten the men!” Geraldine shouted. She swept her arm across the table, knocking over the tea cups Tenzile had just set down. “It’s time, goddamn it!” Geraldine was always shouting that it was time to fasten the men, so nobody paid her much attention. The tea cups were molded plastic, ugly but …

“Dancing in the Winter Rooms” by David Tallerman

“This is the Ship, yes? Inside is us. Outside is Space.” I give the ball a push, watch it skim through the puddle of oil and come to rest. “The Ship moves through Space, and we move in it.” Cap-n’s heavy, bearded features show nothing but impatience. “So? We know that. That’s how it is.” …
