Their fiction is also collected by issue in signed chapbooks, ebook editions and in their annual print anthology, Realms.

Ian Tregillis, author of Bitter Seeds, joins us to discuss superheroes in fiction, why, as a working physicist, he’s not writing science fiction, how he came to be in George R.R. Martin’s “Wild Cards” writing collective and the reasons for the delay in book two of the Milkweed Triptych trilogy (more updated details on his site). Two of his short works from 2010, “What Doctor Gottlieb Saw” and “Still Life (A Sexagesimal Fairy Tale),” made Locus Magazine’s recommended reading list.
