Recommended Short Fiction: KALEIDOSCOPE by Silvia Moreno-Garcia & SANDRINE by Alexandra Munch


These two stories both revolve around relationships. In each, there is a sense of orbiting, characters close, but potentially never close enough. They are lovely in their own distinct ways.

KALEIDOSCOPE by Silvia Moreno-Garcia is a stylized story dealing with characters whose lives touch in different ways in many iterations and time-lines. There’s so much emotion packed tightly into this piece, with its cluster of color that sweeps past quickly, just like you’re watching their lives through a spinning kaleidoscope. Absolutely wonderful. Published in Constelación.

SANDRINE by Alexandra Munch is the tale of the relationship Nicole has with a sun god, who has literal planets revolving around her, including the sand-strewn and lovely Sandrine. There’s a push and pull here, dealing with hidden stress and beautiful visages. Published in Strange Horizons.
