Katy Gunn’s TURNSPIT is new at Monkeybicycle:

“When King Henry VII wants to create a king, he inserts oil with smells into the mother of the king. He will be its father. The turnspit learned the facts of creation from his father, a shoemaker. His father oiled pigskin and created shoes.”

Matt Sailor has a new story up at Necessary Fiction this week, MAN IN MOTION.

Jamie Iredell’s been showcasing Atlanta fiction writers over at Necessary Fiction this month. One of those features is Laura Relyea’s wonderful words.
