My story Sky Painter – an epic fable about a fallen king and the love he left behind – has just gone live at Something Wicked, the South African magazine that also published Freemantle Mons a while back. SW was on hiatus for a while as editor Joe Vaz moved the production to ebook format. You can check the new style and subscribe here.
Here’s Joe’s introduction to the issue-
We start the issue off with ‘The Silver City and The Green Place’, by Abi Godsell, which tells the tale of a breakthrough scientific experiment in artificial intelligence. Next up is ‘Unstitched Love’ by Michael Bailey, which is all about a little girl making a teddy bear for her rather annoying sister, needless to say things don’t quite turn out as planned. ‘Sky Painter’, by Michael John Grist is an epic fable about a fallen king and the love he left behind, and we close of the issue with a virtual reality noir murder mystery entitled Alpha & Omega by ‘Paul Marlowe’. Our feature interview for this month is with SL Grey, who is actually the pseudonym of Louis Greenberg and Sarah Lotz.
It’s a really professional ebook with fantastic art by Vincent Sammy, 4 stories, and lots of extras including interviews with all the authors (of course including me), reviews, and a few story-connected essays.
The cover image is from the story Silver City and the Green Place.
