Short Stories 366:18 — “How to Say I Love You with Wikipedia,” by Beth Goder

I am so far behind in my Fireside Fiction collection I'm not even sure I've downloaded them all. But if you're in the mood for a quick cuteness injection (alongside a small tonne of feels) I suggest you take a second to hop on over to their site and read Beth Goder's "How to Say … Continue reading Short Stories 366:18 — “How to Say I Love You with Wikipedia,” by Beth Goder

Sometimes I think the deftest "world in peril" stories are the ones that tell us enough about how things have gone wrong but don't tell us everything, and "Heavy Lifting," from A.T. Greenblatt (found in Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction) has that balance down perfectly. It was all the more enjoyable in knowing of the … Continue reading Short Stories 366:13 — “Heavy Lifting,” by A. T. Greenblatt
