[personal profile] holyschist posting in [community profile] fantasy
I've been reading more speculative fiction online lately, particularly at Strange Horizons and Fantasy Magazine. Both have some really stunning work.

Recently I read Alaya Dawn Johnson's amazing Aztec-based fantasy story A Song to Greet the Sun (warning: potentially very triggery stuff, abuse and murder) and Alice Sola Kim's Beautiful White Bodies, which made it on the Tiptree honor list for 2009. I also loved Willow Fagan's my mother, the ghost.

Do you have favorite non-subscription online fiction magazines or stories? A favorite SFF author who has links to some of their work online? Please share!

I've found some interesting things on Crossed Genres, for one. :)

*nods* I love the range of genres on there as well. I staked out the alternate history section last time I was there, it'll probably be something different next time. :)

Wow, those three stories were all really, really amazingly good. Thanks for reccing them!

Although I do agree with a commenter that the last one really ended too abruptly.
