August 2009 Short Fiction

This month’s list is very short, which makes me think I must be missing some stories. So if you’re a person of color and had a speculative fiction story published in August, please say so in comments. Also, please list your story on the Carl Brandon wiki (where everyone can go to see stories by POC pubbed in 2009 and in 2008). If you’ve got a story coming out in September or after that, please go to this form and let me know. It’s quick and easy — editors are welcome to fill it out as well!

POC Short Fiction in Anthologies, Collections and Indie Pubs

With this post I’m all caught up with the short fiction published through July 2009 that I’m aware of. I only separated out anthologies, collections and etc. this time around to make my job a bit easier. Going forward, I’ll list all the short fiction in a month together.




And there we have it. Caught up to July 2009. Now, going forward, if you’d like to alert me of short fiction coming out in an anthology, magazine, or as its own volume, please let me know by filling out this form.

I also encourage any POC who’s had short fiction published in 2009 or 2008 to please go to the Carl Brandon Society wiki and add your fiction. We’re trying to create a comprehensive list but we’ll need help from the community. Also, you don’t have to add only your own fiction. If you know an author is POC and read a story b them, check and see if it’s on the wiki. If you’re an editor, please take part, too.

January and February Short Fiction

I know I promised this last week, sorry! With this post I’m now done listing short fiction from magazines. My next task is to list short fiction published in anthologies and probably also individually published short fiction. Now that I’m all caught up it won’t take me so long to do this each month 🙂


  • Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast by Eugie Foster in Interzone


As I mentioned, the stories I list here will also go up on the Carl Brandon wiki when I have the time. However, you don’t need to wait for me — add them yourself! If I’ve missed any 2009 stories by POC, please add them to the wiki.

Also, be sure to check out March/April and May/June/July as I’ve added new listings.

And finally: we’ve fixed the issue where individual posts could not be linked to. Thanks to everyone who pointed it out and helped us resolve it!
