Editor’s Note – June 2012
RSF #25! In internet lifespans we are practically ancient.
We are proud to have brought so many outstanding stories to our readers and to have provided a professional market for so many outstanding, and largely new, writers.
We have two excellent stories this month from two writers who have bright futures in science fiction, Amy Sundberg and Steven R. Stewart. We are well-known to love space exploration stories and solar system-based futures. Amy’s outstanding story of an ice mining family is just the type of story we love. Steven’s flash story of resistance to authority immediately appealed to the trouble-making streak in both Paul and me. We knew we had to have it for Redstone SF.
For the third summer of RSF we have our 3rd Annual Story Contest with Guest Editor Sarah Einstein. This summer we are providing support for the idea of forward-looking, positive science fiction. We encourage SF writers to read Sarah’s essay, Show Us a Better Way and submit a story for the contest. We will open for contest submissions June 15th and stay open until August 15th.
We hope you enjoy these top-notch stories and Sarah’s essay. As always, we are appreciative of the support the speculative fiction community has given us here at RSF.
