Aurealis #73 is out!
Featuring a near-future Melbourne of smart clouds, mutated fauna and air filtration towers in Daniel Baker’s gritty and evocative ‘Refraction’. The second story ‘Kisses with Teeth’ by Allan Chen is a much more personal horror story, exploring one man’s reaction to a chilling transformation. Our ‘From the Archives’ this issue starts our Sacred Cows series where we review classic SF novels as if they had been published today. Shane M Brown’s article, ‘The Secret to Selling eBooks’, continues his series on thriving in the new publishing eco-system we live in, and we round things off with a bumper crop of reviews of the latest speculative fiction.
