AntiSF is where speculative flash fiction belongs - downside up!

Are the good old days as good as they say they are? That is today's question, and I am the keeper of the question, Nuke, who also happens to be your host and editor. Welcome to Gacrux, also known as gamma Crucis, closest red giant superstar to our own solar system, a mere 88 light years away. Unfortunately, my radio presence hasn't reached that neighbourhood yet, but all of those amplitude modulated stations that were on air in the golden age of 1926 are just about now trickling in, and who knows who's listening in? You can see Gacrux tonight, those of you that live in the Antipodes, one of the stars of the Southern Cross, high in the sky in winter, but even if you don't, you can listen to this, the show, which is a flashback special, an extra show for August because it's a month with five Saturdays.

In Gacrux we revisit AntiSF's past with some names that have been with the magazine from its beginnings. Grab your pangalactic gargleblasters and settle into your reclination of choice without declination — you're about to be assailed by the words of Rob Bleckly, Angela Slatter, and Brendan D. Carson. Antipodeans all.
