Short Fiction Round-UP #77

July might have been rough to follow my short fiction recs. Mastodon was the best place to get my weekday morning suggestions reliably. I started the month on Twitter, but have since abandoned my account. Three weeks ago, I joined BlueSky and have started posting daily there – though without a scheduler, it’s a bit random throughout the day. Here are all twenty-three (23) in one place for you
