Some reading/listening:

* Charles Payseur – Rubbing is Racing (2015-Jun) [Lightspeed Magazine]
bing bing bing / The lights speak to me as they flash red, red, red. They’re saying wait, wait, wait, then ready as yellow flashes, then get the fuck going as greens turns the sky into a maelstrom of steel and fire and I’m rising, pushed into the back of my navpod so hard I fear I’ll break through. The first three seconds are the most dangerous, the powers of heaven and earth look away as a hundred ships fight for the same small stretch of sky.

* The Science Fiction And Fantasy Books Everyone’s Talking About In June (2015-Jun-05) [io9]
