If you only read one work of speculative fiction today, make sure it is Husbandry by E J Fischer (if you read two, read Husbandry twice). Its a wicked zombie story with more than a little to say about the state of modern realationships. Strange Horizons have once again displayed the presence of mind to recognise the good work of a Clarion ’08 grad (they displayed genuine sci-fi skills by publishing Dan Pinney before he even went to Clarion!) So, go read! Whats stopping you?!
