Winter has come. Our stories in this issue venture into the shadows, and few who follow after will emerge unscathed.

In “When the Bough Breaks,” Jaymee Goh shows us how terrible it can be to see the warning signs, supernatural and not, when those with power won’t heed them. A heartbreaking injustice burns at the core of Jennifer R. Donohue’s “A Thing with Feathers,” while evil calls coyly to evil in Tiffany Trent’s “The Papyrotomist.”

As for poetry, Beth Cato returns with a darksome narrative of sibling vengeance, as well as the moving work that inspired our cover artist, Ruth Sanderson. Christina Sng chronicles a growing nightmare, while Donald Raymond hints at hungry myths. Cassandra Rose Clarke also provides two poems, visions of eerie magic and sensuous death.

Our cover image is “This Body Made” by Ruth Sanderson, based on the poem of the same name by Beth Cato.
