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.

Fiction:

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

Non-Fiction:

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


Cover Art:

“DuckSoup … The Revenge” by Eli Effenberger
