    1 thought on “Lightspeed Magazine, August 2012”

    1. Review first posted on Fantasy Literature. Free online at Lightspeed magazine, and nominated for the 2013 Nebula award (short story) and the Sturgeon award.This short work (I hesitate to call it a “story”) might be a missing page from a future Encyclopedia Galactica, displaced to our day by a fortunate time warp. Every intelligent species in the universe, Ken Liu tells us,has its unique way of passing on its wisdom through the ages, its way of making thoughts visible, tangible, frozen for a [...]

    2. Copied from my blog.Bookmaking in the sense of writing books (not gambling) is done by all species in the universe. Liu gives us a five alien cultures which differ heavily in the way they write.One sub chapter per culture, this short story reads like encyclopaedic entries. The entries are loosely connected, contain no story or character, even a frame is missing. Even though it is very imaginative, and I liked the single descriptions, the selection feels random and more like a brainstorming sessi [...]

    3. Gap-fillers, I now call these short stories by Ken Liu. They are a perfect companion to spend with when one has splotches of time here and there, or a respite from the hustle and bustle of day. Lunch breaks, train rides and the few moments before or after an engagement are occasions when one can enjoy a short story, 2000+ to 5000+ words, without breaking much of a stride. Those longer, more precious stretches of uninterrupted time are earmarked for reading more involved books, but that free 15 m [...]

    4. Not a full 4, but close. I tried to give individual star ratings as well, but it was starting to take me too long so I dropped it.A Separate War by Joe Haldeman: a war is fought at different points in the timeline of the species, and soldiers are shipped around time through portals, having to face the radical changes in culture and weapons each time. One of the best, both for the worldbuilding and the writing itself. Very vivid images, especially those of combat (I found out the author is a sold [...]

    5. This stand alone story from Lightspeed Magazine is also a fitting first first story in Ken Liu' s short story collection The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories. He describes the various ways in which galactic species write and read. "Everyone makes books" he says. *******SPOILER ALERTT ******The Allatians systems captures a score and recording of the written material encompassing all its voice, inflection, intonation and rhythm.The Quatzoli are themselves books carrying accumulated wisdom in thei [...]

    6. Reading through my Hugo voting packet in a weekend has reawakened my hunger for short fiction. Luckily, I have a backlog of neglected Lightspeed issues to turn to, and a new one that just showed up (at least now they just accumulate on my e-reader instead of sitting around my apartment in stacks, like all those issues of Asimovs in college). This was a great issue - my favorite stories were the Ken Liu & Kat Howard. I love discovering authors I've somehow missed finding out about sooner! I a [...]

    7. Checking my Kindle account I see I "purchased" this issue (free at the time) on May 3 but got around to finishing it only now. Not all stories appealed equally to me, but there is another glimpse into Joe Haldeman's Forever War universe from Marygay Potter's point of view, which makes me want to reread the novel (it was probably among the first English-language sf novels I read, loaning it from the library)."Cotillion" by Delia Sherman was an enjoyable 1960s period piece/fantasy."Slow Life" by M [...]

    8. When I saw the title, I was hoping for something silly about how sentient life is united by a need to gamble. This is more serious, about writing and reading, the different ways to pass knowledge and when it might be wiser to let it go---and sometimes, when it's a good thing that your species is being slowly ossified by the pursuit of knowledge. The ending was a little gooey, I didn't think it was really necessary that the insert name generator here, idr ~mystically understood~ the meaning of [...]

    9. Não, não foi a toa que agora em 2014 resolvi ler uma edição de 2012. A edição kindle encontra-se disponível gratuitamente para leitura e foi das primeiras coisas que peguei agora quando adquiri um mini tablet para leitura. O que não me tinha apercebido era da enorme edição que era, e dos autores que nela participaram. Para além de várias histórias podem encontrar artigos não ficcionais e entrevistas. Sobre as histórias podem ler mais nos posts de cada uma:Continua emacrisalves.wor [...]

    10. This issue stories:Novella:A Separate War by Joe HaldemanScience Fiction Short Stories:The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species by Ken Liu ****Flash Bang Remember by Caroline M. Yoachim and Tina Connolly ****Love Might Be Too Strong a Word by Jane Anders ***1/2Slow Life by Michael Swanwick ****Fantasy Short Stories:Breaking the Frame by Kat Howard ****A Moment Before It Struck by Linda Nagata ****The Necromancer in Love by Wil McCarthy ****Cotillion by Delia Sherman ****

    11. Free download of a single issue of Lightspeed, probably most likely selected by the publisher as the issue most likely to attract attention. It contains a mix of science fiction and fantasy, original publication and reprint.Probably the most recognized work would be "A Separate Peace", a novella by Joe Haldeman the retells the end of "The Forever War" from Marygay's perspective, and it was well worth the read.The interviews with authors are interesting too.

    12. Nothing much drew me to this story. There's nothing wrong with the execution, but it feels more like an "art piece" than an attempt at a compelling narrative. A photographer interacts with his muse, redefining old fairy tales to give the women autonomy.Available as a free audio production from Lightspeed Magazine.

    13. Wow, this woman can write. Her stories are dark, poetic and tremble with mythic resonances. Her prose sings like an aeolian harp. I've only read three of Kat's short stories, but I am already hooked. More, please.

    14. five starsLoved the stories. Great readWould recommend reading more by authors to a friend. Always searching for something by Delia Sherman

    15. Explores interesting ideas and evokes thoughts on the meaning of writing, reading, books and the passing on of knowledge.

    16. A mix of good and very good short shores & novellas (too much Latin recently so I want to write 'novellae'). Only downside for me was I'd read one of the interviews before.
