"Interview with a Sixth Grade Science Fiction Food Stylist" by B Myers

A full excerpt from Gustatory Semiotics Review (Winter) follows.

* * *

It was our privilege to conduct this interview at the Matz residence in Saukinee, casually situated near our subject’s working environment—the Matz kitchen table. Kevin Matz, in his brief tenure as an originator of radical alterities in the foodsphere, has already reworked several well-known genre themes (via found objects, snack items, condiments, and food coloring) into novel tableaux formats. We found the artist a voluble if elliptical subject.

"Ninja Robot Clowns (in Space)" by Graham Robert Scott

A robot who’s a ninja clown floats in space. Despite the title of this story, it’s the only one. A singular specimen. The title reflects the robot’s deepest and most personal wish, but even with trillions of stars to wish on, and dots representing entire galaxies, fortified with wishes like vitamins, there is still only one ninja robot clown.

Some benefits accrue to a ninja robot clown in space. Its giant shoes cannot trip it up. Its shuriken fly on and on and on until they hit a target.
