Publisher Description

LIGHTSPEED is an online science fiction and fantasy magazine. In its pages, you will find science fiction: from near-future, sociological soft SF, to far-future, star-spanning hard SF--and fantasy: from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales.

Welcome to LIGHTSPEED's 115th issue! We have a new SF short from Matthew Baker: "A Bad Day in Utopia." Like a lot of utopias in fiction, this one will leave you wondering just what makes for a perfect society--and who gets to decide what works and what doesn't. Pat Murphy writes about a very awkward conversation in her SF short "Motherhood," brought to you by recent US headlines. We also have SF reprints by T.L. Huchu ("Njuzu") and Rick Wilber ("Today Is Today"). KT Bryski gives us a forested fairy tale re-telling in her new fantasy short "The Path of Pins, the Path of Needles." Our second original fantasy story, "The End of the Sleeping Girls" by Molly Gutman, also takes us into the woods . . . and out of them. We also have fantasy reprints by Daniel Abraham ("The Mocking Tower") and Cat Rambo ("The Silent Familiar"). All that, and of course we have our usual assortment of author spotlights, along with our book and media review columns. Our interview this month is with bestselling author Daniel José Older. For our ebook readers, we also have a book excerpt from SISTERS OF THE VAST BLACK by Lina Rather.
