It took a bit longer than I expected, but all the updates to the Clarkesworld Magazine website have been installed. The site has been redesigned and there are a couple of things I’ll probably move around over the next few days (for example, I’m not entirely sold on the off-center column of text for stories). If you run into any problems, let me know. Opinions welcome too.

This issue introduces two new features: an editorial and audio fiction. Only one audio story this time, but we’ll be playing with this over the next few months and this section will grow.


Clockwork Chickadee by Mary Robinette Kowal (also available in audio version)
The Secret in the House of Smiles by Paul Jessup


Cheer Up Emo Kid: Being Depressed (or Gay) is Not All in Your Genes by Ekaterina Sedia
The Laird Barron Sequence: Defining the Undefinable interview by Jeff VanderMeer
Chicken Little and the Death of Short Fiction editorial by Neil Clarke
