Nick Wolven. In the Midst of Life. ‘The sfnal elements ramp up in the closing paragraphs of a 15000 word story, but it feels a bit X-Filesy to me (and not being a fan of that show, that’s not a good thing!)! – Best SF Review here.
An Owomoyela and Rachel Swirsky. Between Dragons and Their Wrath.
Ted Kosmatka and Michael Poore. Blood Dauber. First published in Asimov’s Science Fiction, October-November 2009, and when I reviewed it I noted : ..well-observed story full of complicated, three-dimensional characters.”
