My newest publication, “Trois morceaux en forme de mechanika,” is now live as part of Clarkesworld #58 (July 2011). You can see the text (linked above) or listen to the podcast, wonderfully-narrated by Kate Baker, whatever you prefer.
There’s all kinds of other good stuff this issue too, especially the hauntingly odd and very smart “Frozen Voice” by An Owomoyela (with its layers of language, linguistic colonialism, “alien” invasion — tough month for humans on Clarkesworld, this July is! — textuality, and identity). There’s some good nonfiction up this month too, including a sensible comment on ebooks (and how people talk about them) by the magazine’s proprietor, and also an interview with a bunch of fantasy authors about epic fantasy (which I’ll dig into, because I don’t know much about the genre and am curious to see how practitioners understand it, as opposed to fans).
As usual, for those curious, I do have some comments and other goodies for this story, here. Also, I can happily note that another story set in the same world will be appearing in the forthcoming collection The Immersion Book of Steampunk! I’ll post about that when it’s out, which is supposed to happen at the end of the summer.
