A. S. Salinas - Lohengrin & TanhauserI would like to draw your attention to Lohengrin & Tanhauser, a rather marvelous story by A. S. Salinas which can be found in Issue 13 of Rudy Rucker's 'Webzine of Amazing Tales', Flurb.

I very much liked the lightness of touch and general cleverness, as well as the incessant name dropping and references to classic tropes and other works (Bene Tesseract, anyone?).

Entertaining stuff - we want more! The picture to the right is part of a drawing by Lee Sargent - I found it rather fitting for a story on a low-gravity alien world where the inhabitants go around on pogosticks (no Predators, though).
