Musing Monday March 3, 2014

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…Musing Mondays is sponsored by Should Be Reading.
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Today I want to share two different on-line publications.  Fiction River features different themes each time it comes out.  It is edited by Wesley Dean Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch.  They are a husband and wife team who write in several different areas.  You can find it for sale on Amazon.

The second is Science Fiction Romance Quarterly Issue 2.  This one is free.  A little about both is below.

Fiction River:  Moonscapes – edited by Wesley Dean Smith

"We all look up at the moon and wonder. And maybe dream. For centuries, the moon filled our imaginations. Eleven professional writers took those dreams and set original stories on moons scattered all over the galaxy. Yet, as the dreams of centuries, every story holds a human touch. From a mythical man fulfilling a childhood wish to a fantastic addition to Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s bestselling Retrieval Artist series, this volume of Fiction River allows you to travel to eleven different moons without leaving the comfort of home.

Fiction River is an original fiction anthology series. Modeled on successful anthology series of the past, from Orbit to Universe to Pulphouse: The Hardback Magazine, the goal of Fiction River is to provide a forum for “original ground-breaking fiction of all genres.”

"This is the second issue of the Quarterly and it just keeps getting better and better.  This issue has new releases for December, January, February, and March, interviews with Beth Ciotta and Gail Carriger, an Opinion piece: Elements of Awesome, Charlee’s Scopebox:  Steampunk with Cyborg Squirrels, Reviews by Toni Adams, The Book Pushers, Jo Jones, and Marlene Harris and The Kissing Machine a fiction story by Danielle Davis.  And all of this is free."
