4 Thoughts on “Locus Recommended Reading: now with hyperlinks!

  1. Liz, thank you for doing this. When I noticed your pingback at the bottom of the Locus page, it was a great relief… because I’d also been trying to track down a number of those stories.

    Since one of my own works made it onto this year’s list, you might like to know that it is (as of a few minutes ago) available on my website:

    ‘Absinthe Fish’, M. David Blake (Bull Spec Spring ’11)

    This is fantastic. Cheers!

  3. Thanks for the links! This is a really thoughtful idea, and I can’t wait to catch up on some of these stories.

    In the interest of shameless self-promotion, I should mention that the list also includes my novelette “The Boneless One,” which I’ve just posted on my website. You can find it here:
