And then I looked at his eyes and saw that they were blue.

Just when I have a hankering for a good, old-fashioned alien and their human story, this shows up on my radar? It’s beautiful, it’s touching and it’s got pasta.  It’s “Kaitlin Out of Space” by Krishan Coupland and you should apply… Continue Reading →

And yet, even trapped in these maladapted skins, this world doesn’t want to change.

It’s one of the most loving portrayals of a truly alien being I’ve ever read, it’s also gloriously gross and it will leave you with something to ponder that’s definitely not holiday cheer.  It’s “The Things” by Peter Watts. Because… Continue Reading →

Now you’re telling me that it’s basically older than time?

The tears slice through the freckles on her cheeks, and she says the words out loud.

Who here would like a punch in the face story about an AI and their AI Mama for lunch? I hope it’s a lot of you.  Anyway, I hope a lot of you go read Caesura by Hayley Stone because… Continue Reading →

As in that in that new thing I just had published.  You can read it right here on Strange Constellations.  Why would you do that? Well, maybe you like fighter pilots.  How about tarot? As in card game, oddly enough. … Continue Reading →

We have had some unfortunate incidents of madness…

“Enyo-Enyo” by Kameron Hurley. I want to wear this story’s severed head around my neck to say I conquered it.  I know I never will.  That just makes me want to read it again! If you missed it the first… Continue Reading →

…laughing and twisting and breathing in that gunsmoke that turns your snot black like she’s a barracuda and it’s seawater…

Some of my recommendations here are going to be for slightly older things.  I decided to do this to share my favorite story bookmarks with the world, and because my favorite story bookmarks are getting out of hand.  That’s not… Continue Reading →

She looked like fire was running over her skin like spilled beer running across a table…

M. Raoulee Reviews Ghost In The Shell So You Don’t Have To Suffer

Short Version I bought a cup of wine before I went in.  The clerk told me to enjoy the wine; didn’t mention the movie. I took two sips out of it before the film started, resolving to save the rest… Continue Reading →
