Hello, I hope all of you have been having a easier July then I have been. I've been dealing with family medical stuff for the last week, and have had to do some extra care taking for my mother in law. She is great and doing very well, but wow is it a lot of work. Anyways I did read some short fiction before all this happened and I even have some cheerful fiction to recommend for once!

Kid Dark Against The Machine by Tansy Rayner Roberts This is a lose sequel to "Cookiecutter Superhero" in that it takes place in the same world and has a few character overlaps. However it stands on its own. This the cheerful short fiction I've been looking for, it is upbeat and warm, and just lovely.

I've started reading An Alphabet of Embers ed Rose Lemberg which is an anthology of very short pieces. So far I really like it. Many of the pieces are optimistic, the writing is consistently lyrical, and the illustrations are amazing. (Seriously I have paper copy so sometimes I just flip one open and stare for a bit.)

A Hundred and Seventy Storms by Aliette de Bodard Ok so this one isn't cheerful, but is is amazing so I wanted to include it too. Another Xuya story about people living around a very unpleasant planet. About family and sacrifice.

Have you read any good short fiction lately?
