Short Fiction Recs: On the Skimpy Side  
Well the last month has not been great for my short fiction reading. I have read far fewer stories than I normally do.

Anyways I do have one rec. "A Short History of Migration in Five Fragments of You" by Wole Talabi Content note: Slave trade. This is a mostly historic story with a bit future at the end. I liked how it addresses the impact of the past on the present and future.

Also noteworthy: "Milagroso" by Isabel Yap I don't quite buy some of the world building in this one, but I'm happy see more fiction about food. It hit all the right emotional notes for me.

I've you want more recs Lady Business has just posted the Q2 Short Fiction survey results. Lot of things to check out!

Also I've just stared reading CYBERPUNK: MALAYSIA ed. Zen Cho. I've only read two stories so far but I'm enjoying it. It's written for a Malaysian audience so I'm sure I'm missing stuff but that's ok.
