InterGalactic Medicine Show - Issue 22

Now available: Welcome to IGMS Issue 22. Always a pleasure to see you here. Let's get right to business, shall we? Now available:

Our cover story, "Love, Cayce" by Marie Brennan, is an epistolary starring Cayce, the daughter of great adventurers, who is teamed her up with her parents' friends' children to have adventures of their own. She writes home to fill mom and dad in on the mayhem with typical teen, attitude-laced fashion.

Next up is "We Who Steal Faces" by Tony Pi, where an age-old feud between shape-shifters has secret agent Master Flea racing through Renaissance Italy to save the life of a poisoned friend.

"Exodus Tides" by Aliette deBodard is a unique tale of loss, self-discovery, and mer-folk, as a young woman seeks to find her place in a world that is integrated more in theory than reality.

"Exiles In Eden" by Brad Torgersen features the last of humanity, taken to the stars, finding more humans in an unlikely place -- with unanticipated, unpleasant consequences.

"The Long Way Home" by George Lippert is an Orson Picks (OP) from Uncle Orson himself, David Lubar offers another of his "Tales For The Young and Unafraid," and Darrell Schweitzer brings us an up-close-and-personal look into the latest goings on with Robert Silverberg.

Last but not least, we try to bring you a bonus of some sort with each issue, and this issue is no different. This bonus comes compliments of our web-designer Scott Allen. Scott usually toils in anonymity, but I have to make sure he gets credit for a job well done. What job is that, you ask?

IGMS for just about any e-reader -- Kindle, Sony, Nook, Kobo, whatever -- that you can name.

Thus far we have issue 1, and issues 12 through 21 available (for free) for subscribers, and if you're not a subscriber yet, issue 1 and issues 17 through 21 are available for single-issue purchase and Kindle-download at Amazon.

Plus, as each new issue goes up, it will be added within a few days to both Amazon and for subscribers.

If you're already a subscriber, all you have to do is click on "My Account" (in the upper left-hand corner of any page (except, of course, the home page)) and you'll be able to email yourself a mobipocket file for your e-reader. If you bought even just a single issue back when that was the IGMS subscription model, you can still get that single issue for your e-reader, too.

So a big thanks to our web designer, Scott Allen, and a big you're welcome to IGMS readers everywhere.
