New Ceres

A new web 'zine was launched today. Something to read and a new local(ish) market for writers. It has the usual mix of short stories and non-fiction. It has the rather unusual premise, for a webzine, of a common shared universe. This is what they say...

Meet the world of New Ceres, an exciting and dangerous place. Its water is green and its inhabitants are sophisticates. New Ceres is precarious: its New Enlightenment constrains society as well as liberating old thoughts and literature and drinking customs. The planet plays interstellar politics to defend its independence and it recruits refugees from Old Earth and the conquered New Alliance planets to maintain some dangerous habits. On New Ceres you will find coffee houses and highwaymen, drinks, gambling and illegal hi-technology.
