The Cascadia Subduction Zone, Vol. 9, 3

The fall issue of The Cascadia Subduction Zone is finally out. It's been a long time in coming, for which I'm sorry--one of our editors was very ill for four months (and is now, I'm happy to say, recovered). This issue has remembrances of Vonda N. McIntyre and Joshua Lukin, essays by Steven Barnes and Christina M. Rau, a flash fiction by Nancy Jane Moore, poetry by Gwynne Garfinkle, Sofia Rhei, Mark Rich, and Sonya Taaffe, a Grandmother Magma column by Debbie Notkin, Karen Burnham's Dust Lanes column, four book reviews, and art work by Jean LeBlanc. You can purchase single copies for $3 (electronic) or $5 (print & electronic), or subscriptions for $10 (electronic) or $16 (print & electronic) at
