On the Web

At, Ed Park's Astral Weeks highlights some otherworldly science fiction: Liz Williams' "Precious Dragon" -- the third novel in a series that takes place in a futuristic underworld, complete with goddesses and demons -- and David Wellington's "13 Bullets," which blends the tropes of detective fiction and the vampire thriller into something that is at once familiar and new.
