Once in a while a story comes along that makes you want to shout its greatness from the rooftops. “Arvies” by Adam-Troy Castro is such a story. It’s running now at LIGHTSPEED .

Go and read it right here: http://www.lightspeedmagazine.com/fiction/arvies/

Here’s what the great Harlan Ellison has to say about Castro’s story: “Remarkable. And in the purest intensity of the word: powerful.” And: “Even to spend an evening with intelligent friends discussing the underlying moralities and categorical imperatives of this deeply wrought story, is to spend an evening letting creativity lave your intellect.”

If you haven’t read any fiction at LIGHTSPEED yet, this is definitely the place to start.
