Omni, The Magazine of the Future has returned in the form of an online magazine. OmniReboot. If you go to their website and click on "Articles", you will articles and stories dating from August 8, 2013, with the most recent ones first. Page back for the older ones stories. They are free so I recommend you check them out. Each new story will be reviewed separately. This was posted on August 8, 2013.

"I Arise Again" by Rudy Rucker -+- Our narrator is giving a speech at a literary gathering. He starts out with "I've always thought of my novels as 'beatnik science fiction', not that anyone else uses that description. 'Beatnik' is just a word that I like. In reality I'm more what you’d call a kiqqie or a qrude. I live in a hole in the ground and I eat dirt. These are modern times." You get the impression this character might not be entirely human. He talks about a thirty-year career writing and publishing beatnik science fiction. But things have been tough lately and he had to try some new tactics. Great, typically wild, stuff from Rucker.

You can read this story on the OmniReboot website (see link at the top of this review).
