Product description

Product Description

From the creator of the acclaimed Campbellian Anthology series comes STRAEON: a new quarterly exploration of stories that are longer, more complex, more mature, and more challenging than the norm. If you’re looking for space unicorns, sexy vampires, or short comedies that end in bad puns, you won’t find that here.

But if conventional genre stories don’t quite fit you—if you aren’t comfortable with the genre you’ve been wearing, or have grown too comfortable with the way it hangs upon your frame— if you sometimes wonder why you never see stories that speak to who you are, and are looking for fiction that is new, different, and not entirely safe…

Maybe you should try on STRAEON.

Featuring in this issue:
“Lady Sakura’s Letters” by Juliette Wade
“Avenzoar’s Dilemma” by Pat MacEwen
“Rains of Craifa, Figure 1—Girl with Shavlas” by Lara Campbell McGehee
“The Art Teacher” by Gillian Daniels
“Kelly’s Star” by Ian Creasey
“The Splintered Stars” by Jenny Rae Rappaport
“Cupful of Sunshine” by Anna Yeatts
“Sunira’s Daughters” by Robert Dawson
“Signal” by Renee Carter Hall
“A Kernel of Truth” by Heather J. Frederick

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully disturbing and enchanting. 25 December 2014
By R. Finegold - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The premiere issue of STRAEON QUARTERLY published last week.
I just finished reading this volume and I am delighted.
I enjoyed this collection far more than the last few science fiction anthologies I have read.

The anthology is a wonderfully eclectic and unique collection of tales:

Stories told from the perspective of a tengu demon of Japanese myth (who learns there are cultural traps stronger than any prisons)...
... to stories told from that of a science fiction novelist sunflower (yes, a plant) in an Orwellian world where "All flora and fauna are created equal; but the self-mobile are more equal than others".

Stories of gritty noir Blade Runneresque science fiction to Redwall/Watership Down fantasy with a post-apocalyptic horror twist.

Stories of love gained and lost with the rain and of how love can be sustained (though not without effort and ingenuity) for centuries.

Enchanting, troubling, and thought-provoking. A delightful change from the standard anthology fair. This volume is aptly named.

STRAEON QUARTERLY may not yet be pro or SFWA-eligible, but I'm pleased a few of my cadre of "young" writers (as in new voices, age is relative) appear here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and different 11 July 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Enjoyed all the stories in this anthology! Very different but kept my interest and I would definitely pay for the next issue. (Read via kindle unlimited so no money paid for this one). Please give this a shot, there's nothing too dark or horrific and most of the stories ended on a positive note.
