More short stories I have liked since last I told you

It seems like a good time to compile some more new/recent short stories I have read and liked.  One weird thing that happened is that I read a paper magazine I was not in, and I’m not entirely sure how to handle that, because I liked several things in it, but it’s so unusual that I don’t have a protocol for it.  It was Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet Issue 33, and what I particularly liked was:  “I Bury Myself” by Carmen Maria Machado; “Starling Road” by Alena McNamara; “For Me, Seek the Sun” by Michelle Vider; and “Request for an Extension on the Clarity” by Sofia Samatar (all stories) and “Child Without Summer” by Kelda Crich (a poem).  Elsewhere, more easily gotten to:

The Closest Thing to Animals by Sofia Samatar (Fireside)

Those by Sofia Samatar (Uncanny) (Yeah, I didn’t mean to make it Sofia Samatar month, it just happened that way.)

Solder and Seam by Maria Dahvana Headley (Lightspeed)

Hold-Time Violations by John Chu (

Soteriology and Stephen Greenwood by Julia August (Journal of Unlikely Academia)
