Summer in Paris, Light from the Sky by Ken Scholes

Summer in Paris, Light from the Sky by Ken Scholes was published in Clarkesworld back in November 2007. In my opinion, this is one of the best stories we’ve ever published. It’s currently on the preliminary Nebula ballot and later this year, it will be included in Realms: The Second Year of Clarkesworld Magazine (available for preorder soon). Why the recap?  Well, I’m pleased to say that the story has been picked up by the very smart folks at EscapePod, so now it is also available for your listening pleasure.

They felt the need to tack a lot of warnings and disclaimers on the start of this one. I was amused.


Sometimes my life in education crosses into my life in publishing…

  1. Yeah, that’s a very cool story, and I’m not surprised to see it growing some legs.

  2. A pleasure to narrate.


  3. It’s definitely one of the best stories I’ve read. If I could vote, I’d vote for it in the Nebulas 🙂

    Thanks for the heads up about the audio!

  4. Hear, hear. This is the story I use whenever people say that there’s no good modern science fiction.
