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.

Publisher Gordon Van Gelder shares this advance look at the cover to the Jul/Aug issue of Fantasy and Science Fiction, by Mondolithic Sudios, coming to newsstands in July. You’ll see the cover art before its typography was added in The Digest Enthusiast No. 10, which I hope to be able to release tomorrow.

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.
