New Sebastian Becker Story

Subterranean Press is a Michigan-based publishing house best known for high-end hardcovers and limited editions, mostly covering horror, fantasy, suspense, and SF.

Their stuff really stands out. Probably because the list is editorially-led in the old school fashion; publisher William Schafer is guided by his own taste and enthusiasms, and he's built up relationships with many – I'd even say most – of the top names in genre fiction.

Subterranean also publishes regular short fiction in the form of the quarterly Subterranean Magazine. The Spring 2014 issue contains One Dove, a new story of mine featuring The Bedlam Detective's Sebastian Becker.

And the fiction content in the online version is free. You don't have to register, sign in, or even endure advertising.

Yep, I find it hard to get my head around, too.

But there it is; all you have to do is point your browser to the Subterranean website and click on the Subterranean Online tab. You'll get direct access to the content of the current number, and to all of the back issues you'll find there.

Or you could cheat and click here to go straight to One Dove.

If you should happen to have 10 hours to fill...

The Way the Future Was...

NASA ran an online vote in which people were invited to pick the design for the Z2 spacesuit. Although to be honest, the only real difference in the three choices was in some irrelevant bits of trim.

Those of us who grew up through SF's golden years will find the new look somewhat familiar...

Though I can't for the life of me figure where their inspiration might have come from.
