Rae Dawn Carson captures the longing for and necessity of romantic love in her moving story, "Becoming," available now in Issue #18 of Abyss & Apex.

While the emotions touched me, the non-linear structure of the story captured me as well. Writing and reading only at novel length, you risk missing out on the clever ways that shorts use form, not just plot, to tell the story. Pay attention, all you Zircon hopefuls!

(What's the Zircon? Our short story contest. Check for details. Updated rules, entry template, etc., should be available in July.)
