Two stories you need to check out right now:
1: Starship Sofa Aural Delights #51 has some great poetry by Mikal Trimm, flash fiction by L.E. Modesitt Jr and of course the fiction is crawled by Mr. Matthew Sanborn Smith. But oh, you have to hear the main fiction on this one. The Third Bear by Jeff Vandermeer is haunting, beautiful and in parts gratuitously violent. Right up my alley.
2: The Film-makers of Mars, a new story by Geoff Ryman over at Tor.com. This one's going to be on many best of the year lists. Heard it here first.
