Gathering from the response to issue 57, we’ve got a lot of dedicated followers, so here’s issue 58, just in time for summer reading.
Our fiction runs several gamuts: a twisted prom night and a one-night stand, troubled offspring-parent relationships (to put it mildly), a strange stone, an arrest of a suspect in the park, the eerie items that the ocean yields, a music camp from hell, fiendishly smart fish, a multi-cephalic encounter, deaths by fire and water, a fortuneteller, a maddeningly equable husband, birds out of hand, and of course unrequited love.
This issue also features two author interviews, one with the Iraqi writer Diaa Jubaili and the other with the maritime engineer Mark Jednaszewski.
As with the previous issue, our writers are all over the map, in as many senses as you can imagine.
We’d like to thank our authors, without whom we’d have no material, our staff, without whom we’d have no magazine, and all those who submitted, putting their talent on display.
So check out the issue, selectively if you must, and tell others if you like what you read.
