I bought NOON today. NOON might be the best short story magazine around right now; certainly one of the best.
You can buy it in Barnes and Noble, at least at the one in Astor Place.
It's a small thing, like a little paperback book, but it's there.
I just started reading it this evening but the Rebecca Curtis story is terrific. It's called "Someone Like Sue." Today has been a really good day for short stories, for me. I don't like most short stories. Tao interviewed Rebecca Curtis once. I didn't really care then, but later I read her wolf story which he reprinted, and I read "Someone Like Sue," and now I think Rebecca Curtis is fucking great.
I think Rebecca Curtis's stories are always sad, and they're about people who are miserable and trapped, and still they are hilarious.
