My Story is the Cover Story for the March Lightspeed!

Lightspeed Magazine Issue 70

The March issue of Lightspeed Magazine is now available, and my story “Welcome to the Medical Clinic at the Interplanetary Relay Station, Hours Since the Last Patient Death: 0” is the cover story!

The cool cover art is by Reiko Murakami.

Also in this issue of Lightspeed:  Christie Yant did an interview with me, to go along with the story.  We cover allergy shots, SF tropes, and writing advice.  (The interview talks briefly about the story, so I recommend reading the story first.)


  1. Caroline, I just read your story in Daily Science Fiction – “You Are Not The Hero Of This Story.” It drove me crazy. I wanted to say, “You are not the author of a story.” However, you made it all up with the ending. Then the rest made sense and also provided a real moral to the story. So kudos. I look forward to reading more of your stories.
