Suddenly the end of the year seems to be rushing towards us at an alarming speed. Must take time to smell the flowers, read the stories, etc. Why, here's a nifty one now!

A Brief Investigation of the Process of Decay, by Genevieve Valentine

There was a pause before "interested" that meant "acclimated," as if Mars was going to be just like the rez, except without oxygen.


If you're nominating short stories for any awards this year, I hope you will consider the delightful assortment available in the Strange Horizons archives. It would make us very happy to see some of our favorite stories get a well-deserved wider recognition.


Related only by virtue of the fact that Ms. Valentine is the purveyor of all things funny and has brought this skit to my attention: I have to admit there are times when I wish Jane Austen scenes would end this way.
