Of Melei, of Ulthar by Gord Sellar
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.
Damien G. Walter’s article, The Next Generation of Sci-Fi Writers, is up at the Guardian Book Blog. In it, he has some nice things to say about Joe Hill, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Ken Scholes. He also mentions Clarkesworld and specifically references Ken’s first Clarkesworld story, Summer in Paris, Light from the Sky.
Head on over to the Guardian and tell Damien what other new writers he should be reading. He’d like to hear from you.
