It looks like I’m a little late in getting the editorial up for you this month. But this time I’m sort of happy I did so, mainly because I can say May the Fourth be with you. That’s right. Happy Star Wars Day. I hope you’re enjoying each and every film and everything else that has spun off from the original trilogy.
Also, speaking of May, did you know that May is National Short Story Month? Go ahead and tell your friends. The more of us who know about it, the more of us there will be who can celebrate short stories together.
And don’t forget to celebrate Towel Day in memory of Douglas Adams at the end of the month (May 25th). I’ll try to have a towel on me.
Interstellar Fiction has been around for almost a year now, and we’re all very proud of it’s progress. However, a few of us were chatting and have decided that the magazine is not niche enough. We must go deeper. The decision was to start publishing what I affectionately like to call botrotica: robot erotica. We have noticed the success of books like “Fifty Shades of Gray”, and we’re looking for the next one, only involving robots. So if you’re familiar for “Fifty Shades of Gray”, we’re looking for something like “Fifty Shades of Steel and Circuitry”.
We even have a couple of stories ready to publish next month.
- 01001100011011110111011001100101: Code of Love
- Input Required
- A Longing Circuit
- Heart of Titanium
They are all promising, especially if you’re into botrotica. And we’re sure that they’ll get your circuits burnin’ and keep all your appendages fully lubed.

Wow. It’s March already. What happened to February? It just seemed to whiz right by. I suppose that’s what happens when the month has only twenty-eight days in a normal year. On the bright side, if you’re looking to try something new for a month, February would be the best time to test it. I’ll have to remember that for next year.
Anyways, welcome to the eighth issue of Interstellar Fiction. We’ve got a lot of great stuff lined up for you this month.
It’s a new month and that means we have new stories and art for you. The stories this month are great, and we do hope you enjoy them. And if you’re looking for the links, we’ve got them just for you.
October is a month often synonymous with the harvest. Leaves begin to fall and farmers are out harvesting their fields. It’s also a time of ending. The summer either comes halting to a stop or eases into the colder weather of November and December. Students will be halfway through their fall semester, a quarter of the way through the school year, and that much closer to their summer break. Halloween, the holiday at the end of the month celebrates death, the end of life. All good things in life must come to an end, and the stories this month will demonstrate those bounds.
