I’m very excited to share that “The Rule of Three” by Lawrence M. Schoen which I edited and published in issue 1 of Future SF this past December is a Nebula Award finalist!

It’s available online for free in both formats:
At this point the entire first issue has been unlocked and is free to read online, and I’m hard at work putting together issue 2, which will launch on March 15.
