...is a story called "The Ships Like Clouds, Risen from Their Rain" by Jason Sanford.
(The other 17 stories that are held over are still under discussion: both the holiday period and an error during the printing of the premiere Black Static issue slowed things down. Please be patient: we are considering these stories *very* seriously.)
In our correspondence about the story, I mentioned that I thought it would have fitted nicely in Interzone #208: the special sensawunda issue (fiction edited and selected by me). Jason then said he wrote the story inspired by that very issue.
Well, that alone made the issue worthwile, IMHO.
Anyway, more updates on acceptances as we make them.
