I saw someone tweeting about this and now cannot remember who, but the upshot is that Sci Fiction, the most excellent online original (and classic reprint) fiction venue edited by the most excellent Ellen Datlow from 2000-2005, is now archived here. This means that you can again find all kinds of outstanding short fiction that has been sadly absent for a while. (Or at least I had a hard time tracking it down.)
Among those stories are two of my own, "Volunteers" and "Jimmy Guang's House of Gladmech."
And if that doesn't satisfy your appetite for free online Irvine short fiction, you can find more listed here (although they include neither this story nor this one, perhaps because neither are SF).
