Normally I only post short fiction in this round-up, but there are two essays I read or re-read this week that I am posting along with the fiction. I've placed them after the seven short fiction pieces.
Brightly, Undiminished by Sarah Grey was published in March by Lightspeed Magazine.
Read or listen to Keeping House by Sarah Day at Pseudopod, also from March.
Bite by KC Shaw is published at Daily Science Fiction.
The final entry to this week's round-up is a youtube video where you can listen to Cat Rambo read from her essay on Mentors, Mentees, and Mentorship in the Pocket Workshop from Hydra House. This will be of most interest to speculative fiction writers.
