Short stories I have liked since last time I said so

I’m continuing with my earlier-in-the-year decision to post more on Twitter about short stories I have liked, and to collect those here. I don’t make any pretense of reading all of what’s out there–having recommended one story from an issue of a magazine doesn’t even necessarily mean I read the rest and didn’t like them as well–but I still feel pretty strongly that signal-boosting the things I like is a good, good thing. I particularly want to catch up on the magazines I receive in digest form on my Kindle, but in the meantime, here are some things I like.

If there are stories you’ve been enjoying recently, please feel free to share in the comments.

Court Bindings, by Karalynn Lee (BCS)

Wild Things Go to Go Free, by Heather Clitheroe (BCS)

The Deepest Rift, by Ruthanna Emrys (

Meshed, by Rich Larson (Clarkesworld)
