Barbara Krasnoff’s latest short story “Symbiosis” has been published in the February issue of the online publication Crossed Genres. The theme of the issue is UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension), so you know it’s gotta be an interesting read…
Barbara’s story “Symbiosis” has been accepted by Crossed Genres for its 14th issue.
The issue is themed “UST” (Unresolved Sexual Tension, for those not familiar with the term); in the case of “Symbiosis,” the story concerns the relationship between two women and a computer.
Barbara has had stories appear in previous issues of Crossed Genres, as well as several of their collections.
The story should appear early next year — Crossed Genres is struggling financially, and so they’re trying to get as many subscriptions as they can by the end of December.
The story is sort of a thought experiment about expectations: What we expect our lives will be like when we’re young, how things often don’t work out the way we think they will — and how we handle that gap between what we thought would happen and what actually does.
Besides the fact that the story has been published in Voluted Dreams, I’m especially pleased because, along with a group of other stories, there is an interview with the very talented writer (and a good friend) Rick Bowes, whose most recent book is Dust Devil on a Quiet Street.
Voluted Dreams is not a free online publication; it costs $2/month or $20/year. But hey! You could do worse…
