Zwischen 2005 und 2014 erschien das Subterranean Magazin. In Kürze (am 31.7.) versammelt diese Anthologie die besten Stories daraus.

Ich vermisse einige Novellas wie "After the Siege" by Cory Doctorow, Ted Chiang's "The Lifecycle of Software Objects", "Grand Jeté (The Great Leap)" and "The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath the Queen's Window" by Rachel Swirsky, or "Vacancy" by Lucius Shepard. Und dann sind ein paar der Geschichten unter aller Kanone und vermutlich nur wegen der fanmagnetischen Namen von Ellison und Scalzi aufgenommen. Einige Geschichten übersprang ich einfach, weil ich Horror nicht mag.

 

Bemerkenswert ist, dass sämtliche Geschichten noch immer online kostenfrei zu lesen sind.

Wie üblich führen die Links zu meinem Blog.
