One thought on “Semiprozines and the Locus Recommended Reading List”
“Offworld Friends Are Best” is a trippy little tale (well, it’s not that little; and it does a lot more than it seems like at first). A great story to read and re-read (if I do toot GUD’s horn a bit there).
Link much appreciated! I wonder if we should offer a discount for the story to help pull more people in…
