Flurb #11

Issue #11 of Flurb is out, guest-edited by the redoubtable Eileen Gunn, and with astonishing tales by twelve wonderful writers: Anders, Bef, Brown, Chimal, Minister Faust, Guffey, Kek-W, Lain, Rojo, Rucker, Swanwick, and What!

A first: three of our stories are from Mexico, and appear in both English and Spanish.

Enough talk! Go to and be among the first of the sixty or seventy thousand people who’ll be checking out our new issue over the coming six months!

When you’re done, come back here and post something encouraging in the comments. Our authors need your support.

One more thing—today’s my 65th birthday! I’m grateful, at my age, to still be a part of the literary scene. I’ll take the gold watch later.

    It was beautiful, and a joy to read.

  5. Steve H Says:

    Rudy, happy birthday! You still got it, man. That’s a very gone story (snaps fingers several times). Real gone.

  6. Paul Says:

    Guffey, your story was like being in the Museum of Jurassic Technology.

  7. Dave Fitzgerald Says:

    Happy belated birthday, Rudy!
    You’re not getting older, you’re getting fractaler…

    I remember those guys. 1972. I passed Thing and Ringo in Portland. We paused to sniff in front of Corno’s. I was the scruffy little terrier mutt.

    60,000 to 70,000 readers, eh? Do you have more readers than ANALOG or ASIMOV’S? Far out, brother, if you do. Wonderful.

    Great issue! I really identified with Kek-W’s “Big Store Baoding.” Great job Eileen. I’m also doing my part to spread the word the Latino Lit crowd:

    On Leslie What, “My Big Night Out With Thing”
    It’s your Thing, do what you want to do…..
    The universe opened up and delivered three bananas to me and two compadres, 3 a.m. in the vortex of Cornos, 1972. And you know, the universe is like a banana. It’s big, but the peel is bigger.

  12. Leslie What Says:

    Happy belated BD, Rudy for any I’ve missed.

    Thanks KJ and Rainbow. I admit to have slipped a few times on that universal banana peel but I like to think it helps keep us real. Leslie
