So it’s the new year! Welcome to 2015, gentle reader. (/s?)
Here are a couple of stories I’ve enjoyed in the very early stages of the year.
Ninety-Five Percent Safe by Caroline Yoachim (Asimovs January)
A sad YA-feeling story about future Earth and its colonies, a young girl who wants to get away, and the consequences
Cabaret Obscuro by Julian Mortimer-Smith (Crossed Genres)
An evocative imagining of life in a fantasy city where non-humans are oppressed and converge on a small cabaret/strip club for community. A well written story with some imaginative fantasy touches.
