Flurb #1 Is Done!

Whew! I'm done with Issue #1 of my new webzine, Flurb at

I just put in late-arriving contributions. A funny, strange short story by Michael Blumlein, an astounding postsingularity novelette by Cory Doctorow, and a fine piece of Disneyesque surrealism by Kris Saknussem.

We also have a fantasy-SF hybrid by Di Filippo and me, a Lovecraftian horror tale by Marc Laidlaw, a haunting fractal fantasy by Richard Kadrey, a shockingly un-PC meditation on terrorism by John Shirley, and a Zen-pure dirty story Terry Bisson.

For now I'm going to suggest using the comment section of today's entry as the official spot for posting comments on Flurb #1. So…

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve been sitting here going through actual withdrawl for lack of new short fiction to read. I’m between magazine deliveries and dead tired of trying to find much beyond shared world books at the local (I even hate the name) chapters/indigo. Just one more time thank you

    Hi Rudy!

    I clicked on the link you provided but unfortunately, it is not working. I hope there is an alternate link which will allow me to see what Flurb #1 is all about.

    Anyways, you have a nice blog out here. I’ll be checking more of your posts. Thanks!
