I just finished reading the Spring 2013 issue of The Colored Lens. Admittedly, I’m somewhat biased because my story, “Bottle This,” appears in the issue, but my story is only one small reason you should read this issue if you like speculative fiction. At $2.99 on Amazon, this issue is a bargain.
The issue includes twelve stories in addition to mine, all nicely done. I particularly enjoyed Maigen Turner’s steampunkish whodunnitish story about a murdered wizard, “In Glamourglass Court,” Rebecca Schwarz’s lyrical mermaid story, “The Gyre,” S. R. Algernon’s fascinating and somewhat beguiling “Once More, onto the Beach,” and the themes of memory and love underpinning John Zaharick’s “Fossil Fire” and Michael Shone’s “The Flower Garden.”
Now, off to read the latest F&SF and Asimov’s!
