And now, finally, Year 3 has begun! We have a completely redesigned, free website. (Thanks so much to Pablo Defendini for his beautiful work.) We have a variety of ways for people to support us as we work to move away from Kickstarting to a more sustainable model. We are opening up again to submissions in a few days. And, of course, we have Issue 16 to kick off Year 3.
Our short story this month is Testimony by Jennifer Mason-Black. This one’s a gut-twister, set in a future that has passed a very sick little girl by while she lay frozen, awaiting a cure. In flash fiction, we have The Work by Alexandre Stone, a race against time as the walls come down, and The Cutting Yield by Hillary Jacques, a story about food and family in a shattered future.
Thanks so much to all our readers and our supporters. And tell your friends and fellow readers they can now read Fireside for free!
