Kenya has a new problem, and it’s a dangerous type of alcohol being brewed by the locals. It’s not just dangerous, it’s actually killing people, and not just in the ways normal commercial alcohol kills people. These people are dying from multiple health complications related to drinking it, mostly because of what’s in it that wouldn’t normally be there. Spicing it with extremely dangerous chemicals makes it cheaper and more effective, but that doesn’t come without dire consequences.

Josh Homme has an excellent show on Beats 1 called ‘The Alligator Hour’ and this week’s edition featured part one of his interview with Arctic Monkey’s frontman, Alex Turner. The pair have history – Homme produced the Monkeys’ 2009 record ‘Humbug’ – and that makes for a great conversation. One of the most enjoyable moments was when they decided to read out a few of their iPhone notes. Homme fills his with odd and interesting words he encounters as well as idle thoughts including “The shivers…” and “Put glass in front of everything: Glass panther, glasshole…” Among Turner’s notes were…

Sarah Hans, editor behind the award-winning anthology Steampunk World, is currently looking for short fiction for its follow-up, Steampunk Universe.
According to her website, the type of work she’s looking for:
Your story should take place in a non-Western culture. I’d love to have a variety of stories that take place in the diverse cultures of Central/South America, Asia, and Africa.
Your story should contain a character with at least one exceptionality. It should be a major element of the story, providing the character with extra challenges but maybe also special insight or abilities. I want to explore how steampunk technology changes the lives of people with exceptionalities, for better or for worse. I’d love to see characters who are also members of other marginalized groups (such as LGBTQ characters).
Your story should contain steampunk elements. I get a lot of submissions with steampunk exoskeletons and dirigibles, but not many with spaceships or submarines. I’d really like authors to stretch themselves and instead of just writing alternate history, set the story in a parallel universe or on another planet. Read Tobias Buckell’s excellent story “Love Comes to Abyssal City” for an example.
All submissions are due June 1, 2016. More info can be found here.
