It is that time of the month again. What have we got for you in March? Well, if you follow me on Twitter you might have seen me mention how excited I was about the table of contents for the new Clarkesworld. Now I can tell you why.
The winner of last year’s Readers’ Poll was “Immersion” by Aliette de Bodard. This month she’s back. The story is called “The Weight of a Blessing”, and I have just seen Aliette tweet that it is a very angry story. The audio version is available here.
If a new story from Aliette wasn’t enough, there’s a story from Genevieve Valentine, the intriguingly titled “86, 87, 88, 89”. There is also the more straightforward but equally intriguing “The Last Survivor of the Great Sexbot Revolution” by A.C. Wise. Those two will be podcast later in the month.
Jeremy has an interview with M.C. Planck, and the non-fiction article is “Videodrome at Thirty” by Keith Phipps. That’s a look back at David Cronenberg’s classic movie. The Another Word column for this month has been taken over by Princess Alethea Kontis, who is talking about “Original Sin”. Ooh, err, whatever can she be on about?
Neil’s editorial contains the exciting but slightly old news that, as of the April issue, Gardner Dozois will be taking up the post of Reprints Editor, meaning that a fourth story will be added to each issue. It also includes the excellent news of the magazines four Nebula nominees.
This month’s cover is “The Emperor’s Arrival” by David Demaret.
As usual, the issue is available in the bookstore as well as online. Those of you who by issues help keen the magazine free for those who can’t afford to do so.
We also have the March issue of Lightspeed. The top features there (at least as far as I am concerned) are a story and interview from the fabulous Argentinian author, Angélica Gorodischer.
