The Love Letters

People say that when the Creator made All, everything was given a purpose.
But Asteroid I121522525121 seemed to have been left out of that grand plan. This asteroid resided between two prosperous galaxies, but it had never been established as a starport like its neighbors. It had only stone and no ore, only subzero chill and [...]

Editor's Desk: Wouldn't it be Nice?

I’ve already forgotten where and why, but I was recently reading an article that included a interesting passing comment—one or two wealthy Silicon Valley tech-types could completely change the literary landscape by annually donating a few million to one or two dozen organizations. It’s essentially a return to the old-school patronage model, but with publishers [...]

The Facecrafter

It was the end of all chaos.
The room was clouded with murky smog. Ling Xi had coughed herself awake.
She recognized the acidic smell of waste. It’s from the Agriculture Room, she thought to herself, the air pipes must have broken again.
Rolling off her bed, Ling Xi began her simple washup routine. The stream of water [...]

Editor's Desk: After the Dirty Dozen

It looks like October has swung back around already. That means Clarkesworld has turned twelve and is now in its thirteenth year. Good thing we’re not superstitious! However, it occurs to me that I’m a bit overdue on another, “where we’re going” editorials, so this seems like a good time to jump in and do [...]

Editor's Desk: Another Post-Con Crash

It’s been over a week, but I’m still a bit worn out from the San Jose Worldcon. Part of that is my usual post-con introvert crash and the rest is from the breakneck schedule I kept while there. I only had a couple of panels, but my calendar was filled with meetings, meals, and other [...]

Qina wasn’t her usual carefree self—but who could blame her? She was in the middle of a cold war with her boyfriend, after all. She was [...]
