Shiny 6 is out: the last issue of Shiny from the Twelfth Planet crew. (Does that make it 'all out'?) In this ultimate issue Dirk Flinthart delivers a rollicking good tale with pirates & Patti Kurtz has a rotten time with elves ("Really, the last thing I wanted to do was trudge through a raging thunderstorm with an Elf" goes the first line, so you know you're in for an adventure right there.) My AA-winning story A Scar for Leida (with witches!) is reprinted along with an interview where the editor asks me why people keep thinking I write YA fiction. Step up for Shiny 6, guaranteed to float yer boat.
