This is the fiction journal for SFF writer Elizabeth Bear. It's the likely posting site for excerpts, serializations, short stories that I've retired from circulation (sometimes with a discussion or dissection of why I think they proved inadequate to the market) and so forth.

The actual journal, with real-life happening, breaking news, ill-considered screeds, contemplations on the meaning of life, and helpful information on where to go and what to do in case of an emergency is over here:
