AntiSF is where speculative flash fiction belongs - downside up!


Jan 3, 2015

Good evening, afternoon, morning, or whatever galactic time standard terminology you ascribe to. Welcome, I'm Nuke, your host and editor, and this is the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Atria. In this show, the first to feature stories from Issue 198 of the online magazine, the word is tail. According to fable lions wipe their tracks with their tails so that they cannot be followed. Such tails lead to homophonic tales, and that's one way to say, in literary story, that AntipodeanSF is all about tales. It's about tales that cannot be tracked without sleuthing and effort of mind. It's about fiction that lurks, and gnaws, and paints milieus, characters, events, and ideas with a paucity of words that hide a surfeit of possible reality. It's about subversion in place of preaching. It's about words that may not be real, but have real effect on our possible moral futures.

Short they may be, the tales herein, but vast are the vistas they evoke, especially here in Atria, where you'll join the overclass for some Blang, and hear about all of the latest news to hand on the paranormal frontline.
