‘Necessary Evil’ and Sci Phi #3

Stephen J. Barringer, one of my 3.6 Loyal Readers, has a new story up at Kaleidotrope. ‘Necessary Evil’ is a high fantasy short with a flavour of Scotland; a tale of two clans, two religions, two brothers, and two magical talents, all in mutual collision.

In other news, Sci Phi Journal #3 is out, and available in print as well as ebook form. (Also in .mobi and .epub formats from Castalia House.) It features another of the stalwart 3.6, Brian Niemeier, with a story called ‘Strange Matter’. As the blurb says: ‘What would you do if the world kept ending and you were the only one who knew it?’

Check them both out, by all means.
