If I hadn’t already returned to physical books because of poetry, Fireside Quarterly, the new physical artifact available for subscription from Fireside Magazine, would have convinced me immediately. I’m in awe of this publication’s design and artistry.

Many great stories in this issue. Here's my thoughts on just one of them:

“CARBORUNDORUM > /DEV/NULL” by Annalee Flower Horne reminds us that emerging technologies for concerned parents will likely still lead to new opportunities for old violences in the future. It’s hopeful, heartbreaking, and enraging. The technology is brilliantly shown through scenic action and character development instead of exposition, leading into a tense situation in which the protagonist must race against time to save her best friend.
