New Short Story by Me in SciPhi, Issue #5

My short story, "HMS Mangled Treasure: The Rescue of Mr. Spaghetti", has come out! It is in SciPhi Magazine, Issue #5.

Sciphi issue #5 cover with names amended.

Here is a 5 star review from Amazon:

Could not be better! The stories are very good, of course. The excellent Beyond the Mist by Ben Zwycky continues. HMS Mangled Treasure by L. Jagi Lamplighter is also an excellent combo of tough broad straight from a film noir, whimsy and Peter Pan: "a whole can of whup on your sorry ass" might be my new signature block. 

I am embarrassed to say that I had to go back and check my manuscript, but, yes, I did write: "a whole can of whup on your sorry ass"

The story concerns a young mother trying to retreive her stolen car from faery pirates. Mr. Spaghetti is the favorite toy of her autistic son…which just happened to be in the car when it was stolen.

For those who are familiar with my Prospero's Daughter series, this story also stars Mab, the Aerie One detective from Prospero, Inc. (See below)

Mab f

Mab–hard at work.

Here is the information for the electronic copies of SciPhi, Issue #5. I will post the info for the paper copies when it comes out in a few days.
