It turns out October 1st was Support Our Zines Day. So it’s appropriate, I guess, that (all unknowing) I posted about “The Waking of Angantyr” going live at Heroic Fantasy Quarterly, and also about the return of the website for Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
In fact, it’s worth pointing out that I noticed the absence and return of the BCS site because I’d fallen behind on their stories. When I found myself with a little bit of spare time to read something, BCS was where I decided to spend that time. Unfortunately, the site was down, so I kept checking back until it returned. (And making sad faces in the meantime.)
Which made me realize that BCS is, hands down, my favorite magazine these days. Slipstreamy interstitial what-have-you is all well and good, but I loves me some secondary world fantasy, especially if it features a diversity of settings. I haven’t liked everything they’ve published, but they’re squarely in the mioddle of What I Want. So consider celebrating Support Our Zines Day a day late, and donating to BCS.
