Here is some background information, & how I pick the stories. (Badly needing revision, but this is the only background information I have right now.)
The list.Links on author or publisher name fetch more matching fiction. Where I have a separate post on the story, link on story title goes there. If I'm aware of an online copy, I include download link too.
- [novelette] Robert Silverberg's "The Tomb of the Pontifex Dvorn"; download; Subterranean Online, Winter 2011: Bringing history to life.
- [ss] Dominica Phetteplace's "The Cult of Whale Worship"; download; Asimov's, October/November 2011: Engineering a bug to help conserves whales...
