Eyes of Carven Emerald by Shweta Narayan SF Signal is hosting Eyes of Carven Emerald, a short story by Shweta Narayan.

This story is part of the anthology Clockwork Phoenix 3 (cover image on the right), and appears to be a take on Steampunk from a pre-industrialization point in time; ie we're looking at a mix of legent/myth and steampunk.

 

It look interesting - don't wait for me to read it (although I will) and write about (because I most likelty won't), but go ahead and have a look yourself, and if you like the story, consider to obtain the whole anthology

Lauren Beukes - Ghost GirlLauren Beukes has a brand new short story, called Ghost Girl, out on Fantasy Magazine's website, where it can be read in its entirety.

I really rather enjoyed this, so clicking through comes recommended!

Memories of the Gore AdministrationNew York Magazine has a series of six alternate history shorts called 'Memories of the Gore Administration', looking back at the ten-year history of Presidents Al Gore and Mitt Romney.
