It is traditional in the world of zines to apologize for the lateness of the latest issue to appear. This goes back to Bob, the first caveman to leave a couple of carved stone tablets with his musings on the politics of fire distribution and some great undiscovered band he saw in a cave a few hills over. His next carvings, were, of course, a bit delayed. You know how it is. A hunt goes long. The crop gets rain-delayed and the delay just rolls over everything else. Other projects—carving wheels, painting the walls—get in the way. Eventually Bob gets through the to-do list and starts getting a new issue of his zine out. Eventually we did, too.

Besides, we’re introducing a new columnist, Nicole Kimberling, who will write about food. This time, she starts us off with that most delightful of foods: brownies.


“Unusual and imaginative, with a distinct literary tone and a lot of characters on the far edge of sanity, if not beyond.”
—Lois Tilton, Locus Online

“This small black and white irregularly-published journal is much bigger inside than it is outside.”
—Terry Weyna, Fantasy Literature

    Thanks for a great issue again!
    (But is it just me or is it maybe intentional that the first story, the wolves of St.Etienne, are not included in the ToC, neither in the epub nor the mobi?)

      That would by my mistake. Will get it fixed and re-upload the file, thanks—always happy to hear about typos in our books! (Well, not happy, but at least this way I get to fix them.)
