Dinosaurs on Dirtbikes and Shibuya in Summer

Leonard Richardson’s short story, Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs starts with a Thymomenoraptor trying to buy a handgun. You’ll hear Iggy Pop’s theme from Repo Man while you read it.

Everyone’s been buzzing about the story, and it’s great.

But I also want to point out Rachel Manja Brown’s new story, also in Strange Horizons, that grabbed me by the shoulder and pulled me back to Tokyo when I read it.
