New Publication: Fate and Other Variables in Galaxy’s Edge

One of my all-time favorite stories is now live!

“Fate and Other Variables” is a story of a hacker who teams up with a kabbalist to break into the metaphysical Book of Life and alter their futures. It’s a cyberpunk and ubran fantasy mashup, and you can read it for free at Galaxy’s Edge magazine by following this link — but only for the next three months. After that it will remain behind a paywall. (You can and should, of course, subscribe to get full access to this and other stories).

And here’s the illustration for “Fate” by Barry Munden, which will appear in Explaining Cthulhu to Grandma and Other Stories.

      Ha, I haven’t thought of the comparison, but now that you mention it, I do see it πŸ™‚

    Just read your DSF story … when will these guys get that time travel NEVER turns out well!

  4. Alex Shvartsman says:

    That, and it eliminates the plot problem of the character simply getting back into his Tardis and flying back 5 years πŸ™‚
