I have few stories to share this month. It’s been a pretty good short fiction reading month. While I haven’t been reading quite a much as I’d like to I have read quite a bit quite a lot of which I enjoyed.

“How To Piss Off A Failed Super-Soldier” by John Chu I had not been paying attention to Booksmugglers’ publishing because the theme for this season is superheroes and I generally don’t like superheroes. (Too much solving systematic problems by punching people.) But apparently they are publishing a lot of the sweet family and romance focused stories I’m looking for. This is one of them.

Superior by Jessica Lack This is another really cute Booksmugglers’ Publishing story. It is an m/m romance between a superhero’s intern and a supervillain’s apprentice.

”The Art of Space Travel” by Nina Allan It’s 2047 and Emily works at hotel near Heathrow were two astronauts will soon be staying before they launch for Mars. I just adored this story about family and memory. I read it and thought “well that is going on my Hugo ballot for sure.” One of the best things I’ve read this year.

What short fiction have you enjoyed this month?
