I've been reading Walter Jon Williams since 1986 or so, when his landmark novel, Hardwired, hit the shelves. So it's with great pleasure that I'm able to say the Winter 2013 Issue of Subterranean spotlights his work, with a brand new 32,000 word novella, The Boolean Gate, and his classic novella, Surfacing. We think you'll find both well worth your time, at the unbeatable price of Free.
In addition to the Williams, we have two other stories: a taut weird western by Steven R. Boyett, who, it seems, can write in any genre he chooses; and a very dark novelette by the ever-stylish Conrad Williams.
Enjoy the reading, and feel free to let us know what you think of the issue.
