in motion

new fiction

I'm extremely pleased to present the Strange Horizons debut of a fresh new writer to watch:

"We Love Deena" by Alice Sola Kim, illustration by Hellen Jo

I don't remember which attempt it was, how many people I had been so far. But this time I was Pam, a girl who worked at the bookstore in Deena's neighborhood. Pam, whose hair was the same color as her skin, a monochromatic honey shade that would have been boring and dreary on other people but looked delicious on Pam. I was reasonably sure that if Deena didn't love me anymore, she would love Pam.
