Issue 38 — November 2016

Welcome to Issue 38! This month we open with an aching little ghost story by Fireside alum Caroline Yoachim, Paperclips and Memories and Things That Won’t Be Missed. Next up is Sometimes the Crossroads Come to You, a terrific time-travel story from Mikki Kendall. And finally there is another story that guest editor Daniel José Older selected, Dragon Soap by M.K. Hutchins. It’s a gorgeous trip into the swamp, both the humid kind and the human kind. We’re taking next month off, so we will see you again in January! Thanks as always for reading!

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.
