The interview regarding my story “Riddle” in the September-October 2017 Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction is Live! Click here and check it out! https://www.sfsite.com/fsf/blog/2017/10/10/interview-lisa-mason-on-riddle/

I’ll run the whole interview here and on my website, www.lisamason.com, in a week or so.

Meanwhile, here are some comments from the critics:

http://www.amazingstoriesmag.com/2017/10/review-fsf-sept-oct-2017/
“Lisa Mason’s “Riddle” is set in a city we both love, San Francisco. (If you have been paying attention, you’ll remember that her book Summer of Love has a special resonance for me, because I spent that particular Summer in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco.) This story takes place in North Beach, where in the ‘60s, Carol Doda (a 44DD, thanks to implants!) danced topless at the Condor Club. (If you remember the movie Dirty Harry, North Beach is near where the church was.) Edwin Stone is an artist; his girlfriend Nikki has left him. She did so partly because of his lack of ambition, because he was content to just get by with his talent—but there are always multiple reasons for breakups—but Stone has decided his best friend is the boilermaker. (I had my first boilermakers in San Francisco, which residents call The City; never “Frisco.”) One night, completely drunk, Edwin rescues a vagrant sphinx. Part woman, part lion, all riddle. If you remember what happens to those who can’t answer The Riddle of the Sphinx, you might guess this story’s end. (Or not.) Nicely written!”

In all honestly, most of these had intriguing concepts and all of them were very well-written, but there were only a few that I would actually say I enjoyed. Just because of my personal tastes. Those being Lisa Mason’s “Riddle” and Michael Swanwick’s “Starlight Express”.

http://www.sfrevu.com/php/Review-id.php?id=17551
“”Riddle” by Lisa Mason -+- Edwin Stone is a down-down-on-his-luck artist whose girlfriend has left him. Drunk, he takes home a very different woman, a sphinx, part cat, part woman. She asks him riddles, he answers, they have passionate sex. But she does something else, too. Unsettling little horror tale.”

“Riddle” by Lisa Mason

Edwin is an artist who has broken up with a woman and is trying to hook up with a waitress but fails. Then he meets a strange something in the alley on his way home which turns out to be a sphinx. Lots of riddles and weird sex and horrific things follow.

Some may see this as a tale of one screwed-up clueless nutcase. Others may see it as a defense of women who want to “fix up” their projects of boyfriends. Some may see this as a really powerful embedding of ideas in imagination. Others may see it as massive overkill (literally)….Points for a memorable sphinx and a vividly nightmarish quality.”

So there you have it, my friends. The issue will be on the newsstands for only two more weeks, so snap up your subscription now at The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.

F&SF-9-17-small

Editor C.c. Finlay hits it out of the park with this, the 68th Anniversary issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Two Grand Masters, multiple award-winning and award-nominated authors, and striking new voices. A sexy, heady, and thought-provoking mix of alternate realities, empire-conquering, universe-traveling, and edgy consciousness. You can buy this issue and/or order a full subscription at The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.

In 2015, I published two well-received stories in F&SF, “Teardrop” in the May-June 2015 issue and “Tomorrow is a Lovely Day” in the November-December 2015 issue. These were both chosen by Gordon Van Gelder, the Hugo Award-winning American science fiction editor. “Anything For You” was published in the September-October 2016 Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. That story was chosen by presiding editor C.C. Finlay, as was “Riddle.” Another dark modern fantasy, “Aurelia,” will appear in early 2018.

I’ve sold previously to F&SF when yet another editor was helming the magazine. One story, “Destination,” appears in my five-star-rated collection of previously published short fiction,  Strange Ladies: 7 Stories.

I’m so honored and excited to publish again in one of the most highly respected science fiction and fantasy magazines continuously in publication since 1949.

My story, “Anything For You,” just got published in the September-October 2016 issues of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Here are the first two reviews. Please follow the links for more about the other stories in the issue.

’Anything for You’ by Lisa Mason is a near future SF story of Willem’s obsession with Dr. Virginia Isley. She is not his wife—or even his girlfriend—but a fictional character in an interactive television show. For Willem love is all about control, but he soon finds that some people—real or not—refuse to be controlled.
Mason does a masterful job here telling this in the form of a television script, including the plot options Willem is allowed to choose. . . . an enjoyable read.”

’Anything for You’ by Lisa Mason — Willem has become obsessed with an interactive soap opera about a surgeon named Dr. Virginia Isley. He tries to control her life as much as he can but is constantly frustrated. His obsession ruins his marriage and things go even more downhill from there. A real chill at the end in another great story.”

The Story Collection Storybundle
Curated by Lisa Mason

I love short stories. There’s nothing like a good story to satisfy your fiction fix in the course of a busy day, a tiny universe savored over a lunch hour, on a train commute, with a glass of wine at the end of the day.

Because of its compression, its fewer moving parts, a story may be more highly crafted than a novel. A famous story may represent an author’s style and vision more succinctly than any one of his or her books. Think of “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” by Ernest Hemingway, “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, “The Pit and the Pendulum” by Edgar Allen Poe. Or how about “What I Didn’t See” by Karen Joy Fowler, “The War At Home” by Lewis Shiner, “Love and Sex Among the Invertebrates” by Pat Murphy . . .

But wait a minute! We’ve got those last three stories in the Story Collection Storybundle. And we’ve got more than stories, we’ve got multi-award-winning and award-nominated story collections.

The authors have assembled their short fiction written over a decade—sometimes over two or three decades—of their careers. Stories published in wide-ranging and diverse magazines and anthologies, many which may be difficult to find now, some of which may have gone out of print. The authors have done the hard work of gathering up these amazing stories and all you, the reader, need to do is enjoy!

But never mind the authors’ accolades and accomplishments. The collections are a feast for the mind—amazing, far-ranging, tragic, disturbing, thought-provoking, witty, and—dare I say it?—just a damn good read.

Oh, the places you’ll go! Trek to Africa in search of gorillas in Karen Joy Fowler’s “What I Didn’t See.” Journey to Paris in search of an antique spool of recording wire in Lewis Shiner’s “Perfidia.” Explore the mysteries of a little boy’s life in Walter Jon Williams’ “Daddy’s World.” Search for the Folding Man in Elizabeth Hand’s “Errantry.” Embark on a cross-country car trip with three mysterious strangers in Lisa Mason’s “Destination.” Defy conventional society in Pat Murphy’s “A Flock of Lawn Flamingos.” Learn the dark powers of a voodoo doll in Kathe Koja’s “Baby.” Search for resources on asteroids in C.C. Finlay’s “The Frontier Archipelago.”

As always at Storybundle.com, you the reader name your price—whatever you feel the books are worth. You may designate a portion of the proceeds to go to a charity. For the Story Collection Storybundle, that’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (“SFWA”). SFWA champions writers’ rights, sponsors the Nebula Award for excellence in fantasy and science fiction, and promotes numerous literacy groups.

The basic bundle (minimum $5 to purchase, more if you feel the books are worth more) includes:

  • Collected Stories by Lewis Shiner

This extensive and multi-genre collection was prepared as an ebook for Storybundle, includes forty-one stories, and has an Introduction by Karen Joy Fowler. Shiner was a finalist for the Philip K Dick Award, the Hugo Award, and the Nebula Award.

  • Errantry: Strange Stories by Elizabeth Hand

  • The Green Leopard Plague and Other Stories by Walter Jon Williams

Two stories in this collection won the Nebula Award. Williams was a New York Times Bestseller, placed as a Philip K Dick Award Finalist and numerous times for the Nebula and Hugo Awards.

To complete your bundle, beat the bonus price of $12 and you’ll receive another five amazing, award-winning books:

  • What I Didn’t See: Stories by Karen Joy Fowler
