New content is posted weekly at the magazine’s website. There’s plenty to interest Black Gate readers this month, including Kat Howard’s tribute to Choose Your Own Adventure books, the short story “Choose Your Own Adventure” (also available as a podcast) — in which the stakes are literally life and death. In an accompanying non-fiction piece Molly Tanzer talks to Ellen Kushner about her experiences creating the Choose Your Own Adventure books, and Matt Staggs, Jeremiah Tolbert, Esther Inglis-Arkell and others about their experiences reading them.
This issue also includes a reprint by Peter S. Beagle, “The Woman Who Married the Man in the Moon;” “House of Gears” by Jonathan L. Howard, author of the Kyth the Taker stories in Black Gate, “The Beautiful Corridor” (BG 13) and “The Shuttered Temple” (BG 15); short story “A Hunter’s Ode to His Bait” by Carrie Vaughn; an interview with N. K. Jemisin; Author Profiles; and articles by Genevieve Valentine and Helen Pilinovsky.
These features will all appear online as the month unfolds; you can also purchase the entire issue immediately as an eBook for just $2.99.
