Well here we are, another month and another issue, our second, fully-digital online issue.

We have some awesome fiction for you this month, starting off with a trip to a courtroom for a very interesting trial in “The Devil’s Advocate” by Ivor W. Hartmann. This is followed with a story about a hack writer whose story ideas come back to haunt him in “Happiest Amongst Mortals” by Glen Damien Campbell.

We then visit with a man struggling to come to terms with the loneliness of his life only to be offered the kind of company he wasn’t expecting in Brian Kirk’s “No Longer Alone”. And we close off the issue with a whopping great novelette by M. Scott Carter about “The Bayside Incident”, which tells the story of the small town of Bayside where, for some reason, the murders have started again.

Our feature interview for this month is with Arthur C. Clarke Award winner, Lauren Beukes. I spoke to Lauren a week before she won the award in an interview for Escape Pod, so this time round I wanted to know more about what it felt like to be the Clarke winner, and if she felt any pressure carrying the genre-fiction flag for South African writers.

Well that’s our issue, plus the usual assortment of non-fiction and Writers Cornered pieces. We hope you enjoy it, feel free to comment on any and all of the stories on the site, and if you get a chance go ahead and rate us, or write a review.
