Welcome to the final issue of Year 3! This month, we wrap up Lilith Saintcrow’s serial She Wolf and Cub. We have a terrific short story by Sofia Samatar, The Closest Thing to Animals, which takes us inside a quarantined city and a search for art and friendship. There’s Keffy R. M. Kehrli’s Singing Wings, exploring how extreme change affects relationships, and John Wiswell’s Bones at the Door, which you probably shouldn’t read before bed.
We also have an excerpt of our upcoming urban fantasy novel Take On Me by Minerva Zimmerman! It’s out Oct. 6.
Thanks so much to everyone who helped make Year 3 possible. We kick off Year 4 next month. The magazine is going to be a little smaller for a while, till we get the funding higher. Please take a look at our Patreon if you’re not already a backer. If you are and you’re enjoying Fireside, please keep telling your friends about us.
This has been an amazing ride so far. Thank you. We love you all.
