CAUSE AND EFFECT AREN'T ALWAYS GUARANTEED
This week we're delighted to bring you IMAGES ACROSS A SHATTERED SEA by Stewart C Baker. In it, message orbs carry ancient secrets across the sea, so why does the one that Fatima finds seem to be recording? PLAY IT NOW.
Stewart C Baker's fiction has appeared in Writers of the Future, Nature, and Flash Fiction Online, among other places. Stewart was born in England, spent time in South Carolina, Japan, and California, and now lives in Oregon with his family—if anyone asks, he’ll say he’s from the Internet.

- IF Comp award-winner and sub-Q alum Chandler Groover wrote STRANDED, a race-for-the-border thriller for TrueStory, now available exclusively for iOS, and we have promo codes!

We accept reprints. We need submissions. We pay pro rates. What else can we tell you?
PUZZLE US THIS
To solve this week's puzzle, find the photolink: the one word suggested by every photo in the set below. Then replace the blank in the set's link to reach the next stage. (Size of blank does not necessarily reflect size of answer.)
For a wordplay reward, Tweet us @subQMag with #subQsolved and the following secret handshake: another item that would fit in the set. Don't be afraid to get creative. We're dusting off our most painful puns to serve you.
Until next time, thank you, and stay alive.
