They are quickly becoming a model for the fiction zine universe. I'm hooked.

@granfalloon You have grown substantially. These products are fantastic. I have come to look at Granfallon as the model of how to do a fictional seasonal magazine.

It's awesome. I've been hooked since issue 0.

The fall edition of Granfalloon is now available online! This issue features a story set on a space station, a tale of an unlikely superhero, a fairytale-esque work by filmmaker Julian Grant, and a story of dystopian wars waged through weather manipulation. In addition, we've got Halloween content and an interview with poet Ricard Stevenson who brings life to several monstrous creatures through his poetry!

I am looking to collaborate on a short work of #fiction. Specifically, I would like to work on a 'chapter' in a collaborative piece where each chapter is invented and written by an independent #author, without influence from the original chapter/story creator.

I am willing to start a story, or add a chapter to someone else's.

I would work all day on #stories if I had a group like I'm describing to work with.

@granfalloon are those physical copies? How does an interested reader get a copy?

It's so wonderful to see the summer issue finally come together. After dealing with a paper shortage, our print order was finally delivered! We'd like to thank everyone who worked on the issue and all of our amazingly talented contributors! See you in the fall with another edition!

If speculative poetry, essays, or art is more your thing, we've got several wonderful features just published in the summer issue!

Dissatisfied with computers, the poet tried all manners of pen, pencil, brush, and stylus before settling on quills. But which bird?
After years of travels and trials through time and space, she found it.
Critics agree, the poems she wrote with a T-Rex quill surpass all others.

This is my digital painting "Blue star and black hole", showing a big blue star being devoured by its former companion star, now a stellar-mass black hole, a system akin to Cygnus X-1.

What would a genuinely futuristic transportation system look like? The possibilities extend far beyond roadways and railways as we know them.

When the Earth 'births' its core (expelling it from the Weddel Sea) the planet will become immensly lighter. The pull from the sun will take the Earth into a completely new orbit, close to where Venus is now.

The Earth, in a new form, in a new orbit will still be our home. We will complete our evolution at this time and take on our final form.

Our ultimate ending takes place as Earth falls into the sun. A long long time from now.

"...You might think you know your sci-fi history, but have you ever seen 'The Starlost'? The 'creator' of the show was the famous (or infamous) science fiction writer Harlan Ellison. By 1973, Ellison was a well-known firebrand in the SFF lit community but was already making a bigger reputation as the kind of writer who would frequently get into huge dust-ups with people who ran sci-fi TV shows."
