BCS #246 is out, the third special double-issue for BCS Science-Fantasy Month 4. So much science-fantasy that Science-Fantasy Month is six weeks long!
Jason Sanford (“Blood Grains Speak Through Memories” in BCS #195 Science-Fantasy Month 3) offers “The Emotionless, in Love,” a stand-alone sequel to “Blood Grains Speak Through Memories,” focused on one of its ancillary characters, taken in by a band of survivors, who struggles with the strange powerful being he encounters and his own inner wounds.
Phoenix Alexander offers “Gennesaret,” a tale of flight, determination, and principle.
The BCS Audio Fiction Podcast with BCS #246 is BCS 212: Gennesaret, the Phoenix Alexander story of flight. It’s guest-narrated by M.K. Hobson, narrator of past BCS Podcast episodes such as BCS 208: Suite for Accompanied Cello by Tamara Vardomskaya, BCS 198: Two Bodies in Basting Stitch by Allison Jamieson-Lucy, and BCS 176: Laws of Night and Silk by Seth Dickinson.
The ‘From the Archives’ story with BCS #246 is “The Mote-Dancer and the Firelife” by Chris Willrich, from BCS #90 Science-Fantasy Month 1 and podcast BCS 077, a tale of struggling with present and past wounds but with a different tone than “The Emotionless, in Love.”
