Jeffrey Ford excerpt at Infinity Plus; also lots of online fiction

Infinity Plus has printed an excerpt of Jeffrey Ford's "Cosmology of the Wider World." The excerpt is the whole first chapter. Check it out, I think you'll enjoy it. There's an added bonus as well. Ford introduces the excerpt with an explanation of his inspiration for the novella and says that he has over 100,000 words about Belius and his pals already written. Personally, I would love to see more of those stories. I hope he prints them.
While you're at Infinity Plus, check out the rest of the issue, which is a PS Publishing special. There's a new short story by Zoran Zivkovic as well as an introduction to his work by Tamar Yellin. Peter Crowther, the brains behind PS Publishing, also has a story and interview and there's a profile of Postscripts magazine.
And further, while I'm talking about online fiction, check out the Fortean Bureau, which has just published its latest issue. Among the delights is Nick Mamatas's latest column on short story collections.
And finally, SciFiction is still publishing in its final weeks. This week: Howard Waldrop's "The King of Where-I-Go" and Alfred Bester's "Star Light, Star Bright." Once again, I want to remind everyone of the EDSF Project to show our appreciation for SciFiction. Read some of the appreciations and sign up for your own story.
