Genre Specific by Lori M. Myers

I was leading a workshop where my writing background was known by participants beforehand. To wrap up the session, I took questions, and one student asked this:  Isn’t it better to be known for being a horror writer, or a science fiction writer, or a writer of women’s fiction rather than being published in multiple…

An IN THE AIR Excerpt: “Areomancy” by Anthony S. Buoni

It isn’t easy. Months have passed since I’ve last fed. I hate going so long between meals, but too much activity and the Circle of Sorrow will catch on to my presence. The last thing a hunter needs is to be hunted. Heartrate and breathing slow; the beast’s skin and bones reset. Each transformation leaves…

An IN THE AIR Excerpt: “Wind Advisory” by Lorraine Schein

(Anemos—Gr., wind) An anemometer sprouted from the skull of the Anemometriste. Its fleshy stem was a second neck growing from the top of her skull. Four hemispheric cartilage cups extended from it—a double set of ears whirring over her head. She could tell the source of each wind filling her by the sound the tree…

An IN THE AIR Excerpt: “One Foot” by Lillie E. Franks

“I’ve heard there are spirits in these mountains,” Alan said from behind me. Was he coherent or had he started raving? “That’s good,” I said. “Keep talking. Keep your mind off the pain.” Snow crunched under my feet. Everything was snow. Snow-covered rocks, snow-covered ground, a snow-covered sky, clouds of snow. No warmth, no direction,…

An IN THE AIR Excerpt: “A Funeral for Crows” by Blake Jessop

4 – Try Not to Break Anything   “Well, how is it? Damn, it looks real. Creepy.” “It better be. I’m going to be paying for it for two years,” Madison says. “It is fun to fly. I owe you one for that.” Marcus smiles, and when he’s gone, Madison contemplates the drone. It is…

An IN THE AIR Excerpt: “Dark Air” by DJ Tyrer

Another rumble. Another sound carried on the gusts, nagging at the edge of his hearing, like a factory whistle. He pinched the ridge of his nose, a pressure building behind his forehead. The missing keys belonged to cabins one and seven, which according to a faded sign on the office building’s wall, were to the…

An IN THE AIR Excerpt: “Carried Away” by Jean Roberta

Zephyr would never tire of flying, and she teased Avis by flitting over and under her. The more experienced falcon threatened to drop the silken ribbon from her beak, and this prompted Zephyr to try beaming a thought into her companion’s mind. Don’t drop it. Those pearls were a wedding present. Thank you for them,…
