Issue 33: Euanthe of Jupiter has now been published. If you have a Kindle, you can buy it right this very second from here. If you’d prefer hard copy, then buy it from here. And the reason you should buy a copy? Because it contains my death metal science fiction story, ‘Words Beyond the Veil’.
Alastair Reynolds claims his ‘At Budokan’, published in Jetse de Vries’ Shine anthology, is the first ever death metal science fiction story. But does it quote the lyrics from a real death metal album, eh? Mine does – in fact, it quotes extensively from Worlds Beyond the Veil by Mithras. So I think that makes mine the first true death metal science fiction story.
