Reviews

It's a bittersweet moment to announce that with this special People of Color Take Over Fantastic Stories! issue, the publication is closing down. It's certainly a sad moment to see FSI closing down, but this is one hell of a way to go out. There are four original stories that I will be looking at, but I very much encourage everyone to check out the reprints and the nonfiction, because it's all amazing and you should do yourself the favor of reading it. --Quck Sips Review
