“The Necromancer in Love” by Wil McCarthy


Story 224/366

“The Necromancer in Love” is not high fantasy as you might assume from the title but a scientific “sorcerer’s apprentice” kind of story that is both erudite and hilarious. This story was just added to the magnificent resource that is freesfonline. It appeared in Jim Baen’s Universe, volume 2, number 4, December 2007 and is available online at Lightspeed.  I think the accompanying picture wins the cool/geek award even though the  year is not quite over. (McCarthy used to be a flight controller for the Lockheed-Martin space launch center, so he’s an actual rocket boy.) Check out his blog.

See you tomorrow!
