Ever-turbulent humanity has reached out to the stars and found itself challenged by several “exosapient” species whose motivations are as unusual as their physical forms. Troubleshooters like Caine Riordan must contend with both humans and aliens during this epic plunge into the high-stakes exploration, statecraft, and warfare that churn and change our post-contact world.
But no world is defined just by the characters who occupy center stage. “Lost Signals” digs deep into the lives—and struggles—of those beyond the spotlight by bringing together twenty new voices and new stories in a format that blurs the line between fact and fiction in the Consolidated Terran Republic.
With stories by:
Charles E. Gannon
Robert E. Waters
Robert R. Chase
Walter H. Hunt
Vonnie Winslow Crist
Lawrence M. Schoen
Robert E. Hampson

For fictional purposes, the grit and glamour of the decade combine into the headiest of potions. Flappers and jazz stars; ugly racial inequalities; veterans in hidden gin joints drowning their sorrows with cheap alcohol brought from the mountains by men with fast cars and faster tongues.
Broken Time Blues captures the raging spirit of the times, both light and dark, and adds a twist of fantasy and science fiction.
Come on a ride with us, through the speakeasies and the mountain stills. Grab a drink and read stories about things that might have been, or maybe were.

We bring you tales of past wrongs righted and past debts paid, of a vampire in the worlds of high fashion and higher powers, of a sea witch with an agenda crashing a royal wedding, of an enchanted chess game with life-and-death consequences.
Our poems in this issue add new chapters to the tales of Oz and The Tempest, grant new coats to villains and secret lives to cabinets, discover new senses and damaged but working hearts.
The stories come courtesy of Sara M. Harvey, Cassandra Khaw and Barbara Krasnoff, while Jane Yolen, Sandi Leibowitz, Shira Lipkin, Hannah Strom-Martin, Anne Carly Abad and Alicia Cole provide the poetry. Our spectacular cover art, inspired by Cassandra's story, comes from Paula Arwen Owen.
