Welcome to Issue 6 of Goldfish Grimm’s Spicy Fiction Sushi! Can you believe we’ve been at this for six months already? Time certainly flies. Now’s a good time for us to thank you all for reading each month and supporting us. It means a lot–not just to us, but our authors as well.
This issue is called Overgrown Paths because these stories deal with characters and places that probably exist somewhere, but they’re difficult to find if you try to look for them. The sorts of places where the forest has obscured the path up ahead and it’s up to you to turn back and stay in the sun or push ahead into the dense foliage to see what you may find there.
As usual, we have two stories from two very talented authors. Our short story selection is “The Executioner’s Hat” by Aidan Doyle and our flash fiction pick is “The Faerie Tailor” by Suzanne J. Willis. Be sure to read both and lose yourself in the worlds they’ve created. But remember to come back to reality for a moment to leave a comment. Our authors love feedback. And read the interviews with both authors to get further insights.
Once again, happy reading!
Welcome to Issue 5 of Goldfish Grimm’s Spicy Fiction Sushi. This month, we’re examining those difficult times of life where change is necessary. Where it’s now or never to take a leap, for good or for bad. No change is easy. It requires commitment and perseverance. But most of all, it requires letting go.
In this issue, we have two stories from two talented authors. Our short story selection this month is “Happy After All,” by A.G. Carpenter. For flash fiction, we have “The Collector,” by Lydia S Gray. Don’t forget to read the interviews with both authors to gain further insights into their tales and be sure to leave comments. The Goldfish and the authors would love to hear what you think.
Normally, we would have posted the issue right at midnight but after a significant computer fail, we had to delay things a bit. Not to worry though. Things are back up and in working order, which means we can proudly bring you Issue 4: Uncertain Principles.
In this issue, you’ll find two fantastic pieces of fiction. First up is “Strand in the Web” by D. Thomas Minton. This tale takes us far from earth, but explores just how complex morality can be. Second, is a short piece from Nebula Award-winner Ken Liu. “The Illusionist” explores a fantasy world where illusion can be the means to any end. Though it is never quite as straightforward as that.
Of course, we also have interviews with both authors to give you a bit more information on their stories and their work.
Enjoy! And please leave comments for the authors. They’ll appreciate it.
It feels like just yesterday we were starting up Issue 1 of Goldfish Grimm and here we are at Issue 3 already. My, how time flies…
This issue brings us two fantastic stories from two wonderful authors. Our longer story this month is “Through Bleached Bone” by Cate Gardner. The flash is “Twenty-Seven Rules for Coping” by Michael Haynes. Read them both and please remember to comment. The authors want to know what you think!
For the first time, I feel like the issue has a cohesive theme: darkness, shadows, and the things that lurk there. Let’s travel to these gritty worlds now, shall we? And if you’re feeling like the darkness might just swallow you whole, remember one thing: there must be light to cast a shadow.
We made it to issue 2! It’s now live on the site. We’re excited to be featuring stories from two very talented authors this month. On first glance, these stories are nothing alike. One is sci-fi, the other fantasy. One’s about a robot, the other’s about, well, a lady with an ax. And still, there’s a through line here. Quiet melancholy. Solitude. And the struggle for redemption.
Into the Woods features stories from Kurt Newton and Jaym Gates. As per our usual format, both authors are also interviewed. Please check out all the new content and leave feedback. We’d love to hear what you think and we’re sure the authors would, too.
