June 23, 2021 by fred

Main Fiction: “Camp Cupid” by Lucy Stone.

This story first appeared in House of Zolo’s Journal of Speculative Literature, vol. 1.

Lucy Stone is a freelance writer, lexicographer, and mother of one. Her stories have appeared in many speculative journals, including Dreamforge Magazine, Electric Spec, House of Zolo, and Bards and Sages Quarterly. Her major preoccupations are folklore, romance, and mental illness. Her stories contain many villains, but the ultimate one is usually despair, and she will fight it with every word she writes – even prepositions. She can be found on her website, and on Twitter @LucyStoneWriter.

Narrated by Summer Brooks.

Summer Brooks is a story addict who watches too much television, and she enjoys putting her encyclopedic sci-fi geek knowledge to the test in discussions about sci-fi, horror, and comics. She has been doing just that on Slice of Sci-Fi since 2005, as co-host, producer, host and EIC, and as The Babylon Podcast co-host from 2006-2012.

Summer is also an avid reader and writer of sci-fi, fantasy, and thrillers, with a handful of published credits to her name. Next on her agenda is writing an urban fantasy action-adventure, and a monster movie extravaganza. She also does narrations for Tales to Terrify and Escape Pod among others, and has doing audiobooks in her sights.


  1. I clearly heard at the op. of the show that _Sweet Tooth_ on Netflix was not to be missed, but recollection around here was that he ended up bagged and sorted?

    In 666 tho, I misheard the Industry retired by 3/4 by Tony as boarding. Is that animal finishing in other countries?

    So then ye said, (Jeremy) Clarkson’s Farm is a series not to be missed tho neither Science writ terrible nor Fiction and I cannae find it for asking in the United States of America. Spill the right title again willye? With bees and fennel on it please?
