Weekly Short Fiction Round-Up #17

Normally I only post short fiction in this round-up, but there are two essays I read or re-read this week that I am posting along with the fiction. I’ve placed them after the seven short fiction pieces.

The Journal by Ken Liu was published in September 2013 by Fireside Fiction.

Mermaid by Nivedita Sekar is a graphic (illustrated) short story published at Mermaids Monthly in March.

Pilots and Photographs by Tamoha Sengupta iwas published in February at The Arcanist.

Brightly, Undiminished by Sarah Grey was published in March by Lightspeed Magazine.

Read or listen to Keeping House by Sarah Day at Pseudopod, also from March.


Read or listen to Death Loves Frogs by Malda Marlys at Love Letters to Poe.

Bite by KC Shaw is published at Daily Science Fiction.

In the personal essay, please read How to Make a Paper Crane by Elsa Sjunneson, published in 2019 by Uncanny Magazine.

The final entry to this week’s round-up is a youtube video where you can listen to Cat Rambo read from her essay on Mentors, Mentees, and Mentorship in the Pocket Workshop from Hydra House. This will be of most interest to speculative fiction writers.
