Interview with Deborah Walker (and Kedra Crich)

An interview with two people — at least to incarnations of the same individual. A little over six years ago, Deborah Walker decided to throw sensible advice to the wind, quit her day job, and, as she puts it, “give this writing malarkey a try.” She hasn’t look back since. Translated into more than a dozen languages, her stories have graced the pages of a number of prominent magazines, journals and anthologies, such as Fantastic Stories of the Imagination, Nature’s Futures, Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet and The Year’s Best S.  Read More –>>

Interview with Andrew J. Lucas

Andrew J. Lucas’s story, “The End of the Line” takes place in the far, distant future where industrial smelters orbit black holes using the peculiarities of Quantum Mechanics to create indestructible construction supplies.

graphene-metal-hexagons  “Supersedure” appearing in Issue 35 of Silverblade

“Please watch your step, Administrator Queen, as you exist the PT.  There’s some moisture on the surface.  It might be slippery.”

“Personal Transport,” thought Queen.  They used to be called cars.  But, then again, people used to actually drive themselves.  That was one thing he didn’t really miss.  Back in the day, fresh out of the academy, he started in Traffic.  A few months of scraping babies off of windshields could make one appreciate the end of people actually driving their own cars–well, almost.

“Things were happening; things were moving — forward!” sang Smith as he sprang from his bed. Today was the day. He could feel it. Today, he’d be moving upward and onward. Not that he didn’t love his job.”

HeaterVol03No11 “The Hero Recruitment Bureau” is out! Check out Vol. 03 No. 11 of  Heater !

NewRealmVol04No01 “A Hero’s Welcome” is out!  Check out Vol. 04 No 02 of New Realm!

“The young man faced a dozen rough men and tried to swallow
his fear. It stuck in his throat. The men looked like they knew how
to use those cudgels; and there were twelve of them. In the last
town there had only been three, and the moment he had drawn his
sword, they all took off like sand rabbits. He looked into the eyes
of the men before him. No sand rabbits there–except for him.”
