Letter from the (Temporary) Editor, August 3, 2022
Hello and welcome to August — with a special welcome to the newest member of The Sunday Morning Transport, Emilia Flicker Yap! Congratulations Julian, Lauren, and family!
This month, we bring you four new stories from all across the speculative realms. On Sunday, August 7, Michael Swanwick’s concise and epic, “The Warm Equations” will explore a different side of the choices we may make in space. On August 14, Cassandra Khaw’s beautiful, poignant, “We Can Make Death Work,” brings new insight to the phrase ‘hungry ghosts’. David Bowles’ stunning “Relocation,” on August 21, transports us to the boundaries of the universe, with an amazing guide. And on August 28, Sarah McCarry’s lyrical “The Bird Lover,” transforms relationships and what we know of the world.
In addition, we have a new Irregulars Q&A broadcast planned for paying readers on Tuesday, August 16 at 8pm est — with guests Will Alexander, Maurice Broaddus, and Margaret Dunlap (whose Sunday Morning Transport stories you can read or re-read by clicking on their names). We’ll be sharing the zoom link as we get closer. Meantime, subscribers can listen to the previous Irregulars Q&A with Kat Howard, Juan Martinez, and Brian Francis Slattery (and get your questions for the new Irregulars ready), here:
If you’re going to be in Chicago for Worldcon, let us know. Managing Editor Fran Wilde is hoping to have a safe, outdoor get-together and would love to make a headcount.
And in the spirit of celebration, The Sunday Morning Transport passed a benchmark of 1,000 subscribers last week, which is fantastic for everyone. We’re so excited to keep sharing stories with you, and we’re delighted that you are letting everyone in your circles know about us. Thank you for continuing on this journey with us, and for bringing more companions along for the ride!
All our best for the month of August,
Fran, Julian, Delia, & Kaitlin
