This week's story: "26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss"

By Kij Johnson, appearing in Clarkesworld

Read Kij Johnson’s "26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss"

This week’s story is by Kij Johnson, which means it’s excellent, strange, and quietly evocative. I’m not going to tell you anything more—if you already know Johnson’s stories, you know how you’ll feel about this one, and if you’ve never read one then this is a great place to start.

“26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss” was first published in Asimov’s Science Fiction in 2008. It appears in Johnson’s (highly recommended) At the Mouth of the River of Bees and was reprinted in Clarkesworld in March 2019.
