Sybil’s Garage No. 7 has been hailed as “a complete work of art…put together with a huge amount of love and attention to detail,” “pretty wonderful stuff — beautifully produced, and never dull,” “an extremely high degree of literary quality,” “stylishly put together,” “every story has something to like.”
I believe it’s our best issue yet, and all these fine stories and poems deserve a wider audience.
Rich Horton has said, for example, “My favorite was Anil Menon’s ‘The Poincaré Sutra.’ I also enjoyed stories by Swapna Kishore, Sam Ferree, Alex Dally MacFarlane, A.C. Wise, E. C. Myers, and Amy Sisson.”
SF Site says, “E.C. Myers’ story was one of the most moving, and in an unforced way original, stories in the collection — my joint favourite with M.K. Hobson’s ‘Kid Despair in Love.'”
And multiple World Fantasy Award winner Richard Bowes says, “My favorites among the 18 short stories were M.K Hobson ‘Kid Despair in Love’ with its not terribly distant corporate warfare, Sam Ferree’s take on Charon and the River Styx, ‘The Ferryman’s Toll,’ Kelly Barnhill’s contemporary poete maudit ‘The Dead Boy’s Last Poem’, Eugene Myers’ ‘My Father’s Eyes’ about a young man’s search for a father gone very native indeed and ‘The Noise’ by Richard Larson about the life and loves of an East Village zombie. These and the other fiction and poetry are getting attention and deserve more.”
Since it’s Hugo and Nebula season, I’ve decided to offer the issue as a free PDF download for those who are interested. I’ll make it available until February 15th, when Nebula voting closes. I do hope you give these stories the consideration they deserve.
