Jason Sanford. Into the Depths of Illuminated Seas. (Interzone #226, Jan/Feb 2010).

Jason Sanford has provided a string of strong stories in Interzone (nb you can click on his name above to locate these). Here he provides some vivid imagery that lingers in the mind – in a coastal fishing village, a young woman orphaned some years back, finds the names of sailors appearing on her skin, those names burning white when they are soon to die. When a sailor is washed ashore with a daguerrotype of a scene featuring the pair of them, a scene not yet happened, she is drawn into a conflict that will see one of them dead.
