Letter from the Editors, November 2022
Hi everyone! Fran’s getting ready to leave for World Fantasy this week and wants to say hello if you’re in New Orleans - let us know in the comments if you’ll be there!
Our four new stories this month come from many different voices and genres. First up, on November 6, Elsa Sjunnesson kicks off November with the free-to-read story “The Found Recollections of Revalor’s Last Oracle” — where sometimes even an oracle can discover things they do not know. On November 13, Joanne Anderton’s “Every Her That Ever Was” chronicles a love story variant from the future, across multiple universes, and then some. On November 20, A.C. Wise’s magical “The Lightning Seller Visits Greenvale” is an electric reflection on memory, loss, and hope. And on November 27, Christopher Rowe’s “The Mourning Quilt” brings us grief, magic, and redemption through myth and history.
In case you missed the original post, The Transport has grown exponentially since we first launched and we want to share some of your favorites of our earlier stories with people who have recently joined. The reader poll is still open for two more weeks! We hope you’ll take the time to comment or email us your top three, and to look through all the stories we’ve gathered for you so far. (Click through!) We’re going to begin sharing reader favorite Wednesdays starting next week through the end of the year!
Julian’s 3 year-old niece has taken to carrying around a stuffed white tiger everywhere she goes, so it seems particularly apropos that the best non-fiction he’s read this week was about The Improbable Rise and Savage Fall of Siegfried and Roy.
Thank you so much for being here. If you’re reading this newsletter for free and would like to support our authors and their work (and get access to a bunch more stories) please consider becoming a paid member. If you’re already a paid member, thanks so much for your support. Here are some other ways you can support our authors:
— Boost your faves: next week, we’ll post a reader’s poll for you to share with us your three favorite stories from this year, especially those behind the paywall. When we’ve collected your votes we’ll share the top-ranked stories with everyone, and reboost them far and wide.
— Recommend stories: If you are able, please suggest your favorite stories for Nebula and Hugo reading lists, as well as everywhere you can — there are so many great stories, and we’d love to see them get additional recognition!
— Participate in the comments (authors love to see them and so do we!) and keep an eye out for an open thread or two, coming soon.
As always, thank you for sharing your love of great short stories with the Sunday Morning Transport.
Julian, Fran, Kaitlin, Delia, and Devin
I'll be in New Orleans and will look for Fran! (This is Christopher Rowe.)
