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.
