Our fall 2016 issue is full of ghosts who walk the Earth (or Mars) and people who become as ghosts.
In Andrew Gilstrap’s short fiction debut, a man in black with a guitar has a thing or two to share with a roomful of music fans about the afterlife. TJ Radcliffe gives us a story in verse about supernatural vengeance across the sands of Mars. Chris Reinhardt, in his fiction debut, shares a comic and touching tale about the weirdness of losing corporeal form.
Our poems for the issue, from Lore Graham, Jeannine Hall Gailey, Gwynne Garfinkle, Mari Ness and Sandi Leibowitz, explore themes of loss and love, witchery and monstrous relationships, elemental forces and the end of the world.
Our cover art comes from Roanoke artist Bill Rutherfoord. His painting “What Really Happened” is part of his “Allegory of No Region” series, a traveling exhibition currently on tour.
