This week's offerings are all of a sci-fi-ish bent. Clearly I was in a mood when I started collecting items!
'Invisible' by Lisa Martens
This is not a story for the easily offended: a very direct look at sexism and desire. Twisted -- and very good.
'Five Rules for Commuting in the Underworld' by Merrie Haskell
I have a soft spot for Persephone, and I like stories that place power back in her hands.
'The Fermi Paradox Is Our Business Model' by Charlie Jane Anders
I'm a bit impatient with scifi that is too technical too fast, or loaded with a lot of scientific jargon that goes over my head. This great piece has fabulous world building, and does so in a brief amount of space and time without losing the reader.
