A new Divided States of America story:

For one week only, get Quantum Women by Tyree Campbell for half off from DriveThruFiction at http://www.drivethrufiction.com/product/156413/Quantum-Women
A quantum is a self-contained unit—of energy, light, and so forth. It exists in and of itself, irrespective of its surroundings. But it can be, and usually is, part of a team.
A quantum woman, then, is a self-contained person, independent, yet willing to be part of a team if the right teammate comes along.
Quantum women aren’t superheroines with superpowers, they’re not “chicks in chain mail,” although they might be, as Pamela Sargent wrote, “Women of Wonder.” For the most part, quantum women are everyday folks in a science fiction or fantasy setting. They might be home-makers or home-wreckers, homely or homey, but all of them are focused, determined, willful, and independent. To those who have men in their lives, they are partners and companions, equals and not subordinates.
And yet, like any of us, they can find themselves in extraordinary situations where a bit of heroism can save the day. You’ll encounter them on these pages.
A Poet Explores the Stars
We will now take up to three poems from each poet, but the absolute last day to submit to this collection is Friday August 31st
We’re looking for poems about the exploration of space. The poems can be about our solar system, other solar systems, black holes, or anything in between. We publish a lot of fiction about the exploration of space, but now we want the poet’s point of view.
All poems must be at least 20 lines in length. While experimental structure is ok for print, this collection will be both print and electronic, and experimental structures do not translate well to electronic formats, so preference will be given to poems with traditional structures.
We will accept no more than three poems from each poet, so please send us your best, and we are not looking for reprints for this collection.
Payment will be $5 per poem and one contributor’s copy.
All submissions should be sent to editor (at) nomadicdeliriumpress (dot) com. The subject should be “Poet Explores submission.” We prefer attachments, but you can paste your submission into the body of the e-mail.
If you have any questions, please send them to the address above.
For the next week, you can save 50% on all of The Divided States of America stories at DriveThruFiction. Go to http://www.drivethrufiction.com/saleguide.php?src=sgrc and scroll to the bottom of the page for the full listing.
San was hoping to get into flight academy, but without money, there was no way that was going to happen. Instead, he would have to go to Earth Camp, a trip to the nearly dead Earth. Was this really all he had?
