When the dark night broke out against the land
They called us wicked.
When the fire came, and tore on through the day
They called it justice.
When we died, and our skin popped and roasted on the spit
We cursed them all.
And still we remain
And yes we are

“As is often the case here at Redstone, we feel like we are catching this month’s writers on the rise. Both Michaele Jordan and Lynette Mejía presented us with quality science fiction stories that we are excited to publish. They both demonstrate storytelling ability that will, no doubt, lead them to find success in their writing careers. We expect to see many more stories from them published in the coming months and years.
I Will Love You Forever by Michaele Jordan considers many traditional SF themes, including human-robot interaction and what planet colonization might be like, while Steady State by Lynette Mejía is a heartbreaking take on the SF ideas of the solitary space traveler and a black hole’s event horizon. We think you will enjoy them both. Both authors. Michaele & Lynette, also generously submitted to interrogation by our publisher Paul Clemmons. Great questions and answers across the board this month.”
