new fiction

Happy October!  Come curl up in the warm glow of a new story at Strange Horizons:

"And Their Lips Rang With the Sun" by Amal El-Mohtar

Look at them! Are they not beautiful? Had cinnamon been ground and rubbed into their skin, they could not have been more brown, more fragrant, more beloved of the wine-bright sky.

The author is known as an award-winning poet and poetry editor, but her published stories have been all too rare thus far.  I hope you find this one as moving -- and, naturally, poetic! -- as I do.
