Unearthed Death

Fantasy & Science Fiction Jul/Aug 2017

Stories from Fantasy & Science Fiction Jul/Aug 2017:

In the intro to “Unearthed Death,” Marissa Lingen reveals a little of the inspiration behind her story. “Sometimes I write to try to teach myself compassion. Sometimes I even succeed.”

Osrith is a messenger of the gods who visits the dying. Her task is to connect her “clients” with one of the gods for the afterlife, or the alternative—the boneyard, the place for those the gods have rejected. “Unearthed” provides a strong finish for the issue’s fiction.

Sean Adams’ Delivery Obstruction

Fantasy & Science Fiction Jul/Aug 2017

Stories from Fantasy & Science Fiction Jul/Aug 2017:

Sean Adams tells his tale, “An Obstruction to Delivery,” in 31 numbered reports. The postal service has gone underground, delivering mail via a massive network of tunnels, enabling recipients to pick up their daily distribution of letters and packages from a box in their basements. The reporterly format distances the narrator from story’s events, amplifying their absurdity. While I admire the unusual approach, the distance delayed engagement with the action until deep into the story.
