The new issue of Flurb, Rudy Rucker's magnificent online sf zine, is up. This issue is guest-edited by Eileen Gunn, who has pulled in three excellent Mexican sf writers (their stories are published in both English and Spanish) as well as stories by Leslie What, Chris Nakashima Brown, Charlie Jane Anders, Michael Swanwick and others.
It's been a joy having Eileen Gunn guest-edit this issue of Flurb. Eileen is consistently pleasant and intelligent--with an edge. I'm excited about the wonderful stories she came up with for #11. Heartfelt thanks to our excellent authors.
Looking ahead, Flurb #12 is scheduled for September, 2011. The issue will once again be edited by Rudy Rucker.
If you want to submit a piece for Flurb #12, send it to Rudy as an .rtf or .doc file attached to an email to his address and please send it only during the time period August 1 - 31, 2011. As always, we're looking for literary short stories of length one to six thousand words, although occasionally a longer story can be accepted. We want a strong SF or fantasy element, with realistic characters, and a clear story arc. Quirkiness is often a plus.

So you’ve got an iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s an impressive piece of hardware – sometimes, too impressive. The more you’re compelled to use it, the more an age-old problem pops up: The dreaded low battery warning. Even if you’re on the go, perhaps the best solution to this is also pretty unobtrusive. It’s the […]
The good news: Software like Adobe Premiere Pro, Camtasia and Final Cut Pro has opened up a ton of possibilities for desktop videographers. On the other hand, their use is so widespread that you have to be an expert in them before you can even think about a career in the field. That’s a requirement […]
There are a lot of high-tech drones and RC planes flooding the market lately, and the innovations are coming so fast on each new iteration, most of them forget one crucial thing: Flying these is supposed to be fun. Here’s an alternative that keeps that ethic firmly in mind: The Moskito Smartphone-Controlled Plane. This thing […]
