A few years ago, Kasma Magazine published my scifi short, “Two Wings, Flightless,” a dragon-slaying quest set in a post-apocalypse (the traditional winged lizard replaced by an aircraft piloted by a hostile AI).
Kasma was a speculative magazine with beautiful art accompanying its prose, but now, at least according to Duotrope, the publication has ended.
The magazine’s website concurs with this assessment.
For writers, this is the constant threat of having publications be digital-only (not that I will stop publishing digitally or anything). A physical print copy does wonders for the ego as well as permanency of a piece, although even print has its ephemeral nature.
In any case, I will be posting my short story below for ease-of-access.
Of course, this blog will too someday go extinct, whether it is by my death or distraction or poverty.
But in the meantime, I hope you, whoever-you-are, enjoy my story, which also deals with the ending of things.
