Listen in weekly to a show devoted to the presentation of flash speculative fiction stories (science fiction, fantasy, and horror).

The AntiSF Radio show also features discussions and panel presentations recorded at various speculative fiction conventions and awards ceremonies.

AntiSF is where speculative flash fiction belongs - downside up!

Greetings things, and welcome to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Bellatrix, that female warrior star living inside Orion the Hunter near Betelgeuse.

Nothing happens in a vacuum, unless you count stars, galaxies, the cosmos — but that's not what I mean.

What I mean is this: AntipodeanSF still exists after sixteen years and runs strong towards its 200th issue (which will mark seventeen years of full issues) because of its contributors. Volunteers all, devoting their time to this ongoing project. Authors, AntipodeanSF is nothing without you. I cannot list you all here, but I can say this about other parts of this venture. Mark Webb, the ebook versions are not without you. Narration team: Beth, Ed, Mark, the other Mark, Richard, Paul, the other Richard, Gaines, Kathryn, Simon, Marg, and all of the "Imagine This" playgroup at 2NVR (amongst numerous others), the AntipodeanSF Radio Show would not be without all of you.

Thank you. Yes, you.

In the meantime, fellow listener, it's on with the issue, an amalgam of speculative material from issue 184 in this show and three more, that includes aliens, tyrannies, legalities, monsters, quantum fluctuations, births, icy worlds, narcissism, and the right stuff.
