Our first issue of the new year is here, and this is how we’re pitching it:
A family copes with a pall of silence as a physical phenomenon. A doomed guide leads a pair of foreigners on a desert journey to meet her people’s terrifying and merciless protector. A disturbing incident in a university dorm begins an unsettling transformation. Divine beings dare to venture from their ocean homes, oracles warn of floods, and dreams leak from the eyes of the citizenry.
The complete issue showcases genre-blurring tales from Swapna Kishore, Sunny Moraine and Livia Llewellyn, accompanied by mysterious and moving verse from Jeannine Hall Gailey, John Philip Johnson, Kristine Ong Muslim, Shveta Thakrar and Sheree Renée Thomas. Anita Allen’s quirky, eerie specimen sculptures provided us with an offbeat, striking cover, perfect for the tone we want to set.
