Quick correction/update on Monday's post

There is a new Strange Horizons issue this week--it showed up after I'd posted that. And even when it first posted, the coding was a bit funky, so there was no new fiction for the week. But that was later fixed.

Anyway, the Toiya Kristen Finley story was great--it had a distinct feel to it, quite different from the story in Text: UR, but it was certainly connected. I wouldn't say this story (or the other) is Borgesian exactly--the writing style is completely different, for one thing. But the ideas they explore are reminiscent of some of the obsessions of writers like Borges.

I haven't read all the fiction yet, but the poems are good--my favorite after one read through was Samantha Henderson's.
