A new issue of Lone Star Stories is up, featuring work by Catherynne Valente, Jeff VanderMeer and Sarah Prineas, among others.
Margo Lanagan on fiction that endures: "I’m sure there are writers who think they are writing for posterity. Well, maybe we all are, but we can’t do anything more than create the archives of the future. And whole archives get burnt at once, you know? Everything, even what we think of as greatness now, is disposable. Just because it’s of high quality doesn’t mean it’s going to last better. If it doesn’t get burnt or shredded, or rot away, people of the future can just decide not to look at it."
