These last few weeks I’ve been reading novels mostly and in general I’m probably going to stop doing reviews of the various magazines I’ve read. What I will do is call out anything that stood out for me and one story did, this week.
A Memory of Wind by Rachel Swirsky can be read at tor.com. This is a haunting story that has stuck with me a few days after reading. It tells the tale of a minor figure whose sacrifice during the Trojan War has been largely overlooked. Well worth a read — and its free. Also, if you’ll remember my rant about online magazines from a few days ago, if you scroll down on the left-hand side of the page you will see a link to download the story in various formats.
