Rudy Rucker has released Flurb 13 in ebook format. I look forward to reading it.

I enjoyed reading Harry and Marlowe and the Talisman of the Cult of Egil over at LightSpeed Magazine. Classic adventure style SF with a very steampunk feel to it, with a dash of Indiana Jones.
Harry clutched her satchel, her pistol in her right hand, and didn’t look back, leaping from the cliff’s edge to the airship cabin. Marlowe stepped in behind her, slammed shut the door, and lunged to the airship’s controls. A Viking spear thunked against the gondola’s side. Out the window, Harry saw the horde reach the edge of the cliff—in fact, two of the fellows fell over, pushed by their enthusiastic brethren rushing too fast behind. Good riddance.
Read it all over here.
