Issue 24 — From the Editor

Welcome to Issue 24!

We have two short stories this month: Malon Edwards’ If Wishes Were Obfuscation Codes, a cyberpunk ride with a cop named Doré, and Alex Hughes’ Fluffy Harbinger of Death, where we meet Myss, a harpy… in a chicken costume. Our flash fiction this month is Jeff Xilon’s All of Our Days, which takes us into the head of Tyrone on his last day in a physical body. And in Chapter Nine of Lilith Saintcrow’s She Wolf and Cub, Abby, Geoff, and Sam have finally moved out of the desert. But the Vines don’t seem much more hospitable…

About the author

Brian J. White

Brian White started Fireside in 2012 with a Kickstarter and a whole lot of love. Over the next five years as editor and publisher – with the help of his amazing team and of Lauren, his wife and partner in crime – he expanded Fireside from a one-off magazine to a monthly publication to its current form, a site with weekly fiction and occasional nonfiction. Fireside published 150 stories under his tenure, as well as five novels and one novella. He is deeply proud to have had a part in bringing those stories into the world. He was gratified to have proved that writers can be paid more for their work than the industry accepted, and perhaps most proud of the #BlackSpecFic report that Fireside published in 2016. He stepped down as editor and publisher in the summer of 2017, but he remains an equity partner in the company.
