Andromeda Spaceways 43

My first new story for the year "Emergency Rebuild" is out now, in Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine Issue 43. This issue is edited by my good friend David Kernot, whom I'll be editing an issue (along with Jason Fischer) of Midnight Echo later this year.

"Emergency Rebuild" is a science fiction story set on Mars. It was a challenge to write this story, because it was a lot shorter than most tales I've attempted, 3,000 words compared to my usual 8,000 to 12,000 words. On the plus side it makes it easier it sell, which is was.

The stories appearing in this issue of Andromeda Spaceways are:
  • "Thief of Tears" by Jason Crowe
  • "Instructions for Lighting Candles" by Martin A Reed
  • "From Little Things" by Felicity Dowker
  • "Star" by Aimee Smith
  • "Emergency Rebuild" by David Conyers
  • "Relative to Elsa" by Martin A Reed
  • "By the Banks of the Nabarra" by Daniel Russell
  • "The Prize" by Carine Heidmann
  • "The Painted City" by David Tallerman
  • "Fairy Gothic", by Tracie McBride
  • "Scars that Let the Light Shine Through" by Victorya

Poetry includes "My Naked Hand" by Helen Patrice and "Higg’s Boson" by Don Webb. The cover is by Greg Hughes, whom I think has done the best cover I've ever seen for this magazine.

Glad you liked Greg's art. He's a very modest, unassuming artist who lives in Queensland, agrees to fill a commission in one sentence, then sends it well before deadline, again with one sentence. He's peaceful to deal with, yet very good indeed. You could do worse than ask him for art for your next publication.
