There may be late arrivals that I’ve missed this week, as my writing duties elsewhere mean I’ll probably be at an album launch party at a dingy music-venue bar somewhere in London when this post goes live … I know, it’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it! 🙂 Any fiction that appeared too late for me to compile will be rolled into next week’s post.
Any which way, it’s a thin week – so remind writer friends and editors of webzines to send me an email about new material, or just do so on their behalf. So, here we go:
Project Gutenberg adds stories from Stanley G. Weinbaum: "The Ideal", "The Point of View", "Pygmalion’s Spectacles" and "The Worlds of If".
If you’ve any sense, you’re probably checking back regularly or subscribed via RSS, but for those who aren’t in the know, Subterranean Online has added stories by David Prill and Chris Roberson to its latest ongoing edition.
Not quite fiction in the traditional sense, but worth a look anyway – Steampunk Magazine‘s Guide to the Apocalypse is available as a free PDF download.
Paul McAuley has posted the first three chapters of his latest novel, Cowboy Angels, for you to try out.
An email arrived from Fred Himebaugh:
"I’m writing a series of SF fiction openers as an exercise, and blogging them. Although the posts are nominally openers, the effect is quite similar to flash fiction, so I think your readers will enjoy them as stand-alone stories. I’m adding new stories at the rate of two or so per day, and I intend to keep at it for at least a week.
My blog’s topics are science fiction, choral music, choral music in science fiction, and science fiction in choral music. And zeppelins."
An interesting blend of topics, for certain. Cheers, Fred!
Martin McGrath makes the only confirmed appearance from the Friday Flash Fictioneers by having posted "Another Funny Thing Happened in Hyperspace" a few days early. But I’m confident that the usual suspects will provide in their usual reliable manner, so go and check for some fictional nuggets from Gareth L Powell, Gareth D Jones, Neil Beynon, and Shaun C Green. If all has gone according to plan, my piece called "Harvest for the Gods" should be available too.
Have a good weekend!

Thanks for the link again Paul. The new story is up but a little raw – reasons I’ll go into on the blog later.
In shameless self-promotion, can I also say that my second FFF is up at http://www.bugpowderdust.co.uk?
