The Sky is Blue, and Bright, and Filled with Stars

Published Feb 14, 2018 · 4,549 words (17 minutes) · 5 likes · 681 views

Science Fiction

High concept science fiction meets laconic western sensibility in a future at once alien and hauntingly familiar in “The Sky is Blue, and Bright, and Filled with Stars.” With words that crack and an ending that punches right to the heart, this one will stick with you for days. Edward Ashton lives in Rochester, New York, where he studies new cancer therapies by day, and writes about what his research may lead to by night. He’s the author of the novels Three Days in April and The End of Ordinary, as well as several dozen short stories.

Science Fiction

Watch far-future technology and wistful humanity collide in Matt Dovey's “The Ghosts of Europa Will Keep You Trapped in a Prison You Make for Yourself.” Reality slides off kilter in this slightly eerie story in the best of ways: don't miss it! Matt Dovey is very tall, very English, and as he puts it, most likely drinking a cup of tea right now.

This experimental painting features black and white paints in thin rings. As it began to dry, I took this closeup.

The technique I use to create this kind of paint texture is called “fluid art,” and it relies on mixing a variety of mediums into acrylic paints to influence how they interact. I’ll use materials like glue, isopropyl alcohol, liquid silicone, and a butane torch.
