An Eclectic Editorial
eclectic: adj. composed of elements drawn from a variety of sources, styles, etc.
That’s the best word to describe this issue. Wish dragons, loneliness, and just plain crazy-creepy.
We’re also excited to offer you podcasts of two of our stories, and interviews with their authors!
Our first story, “Small Wishes” by Carol Otte, takes us to some fanciful places but tackles some serious themes. Sing a song, make a wish, all your dreams come true. But should they?
Next up we have “The Last Man on Earth–A Mini Novel” by Pulitzer Prize nominated poet John Guzlowski; a heartfelt look into the heart and mind of the grieving. Watch for links to the podcast of this story, as well as our interview with John.
Last, but not least, we offer “The Cratch, Thy Keeper” by Matthew Amati; a SERIOUSLY creepy story with a stick-in-your craw vernacular that you’ll then be able to listen to, with spine-tingling effectiveness, in the podcast. And don’t forget to click over to Matt’s interview.
We’d like to thank voice actor Elijah Lucian for his fabulous work. To learn about Elijah, stop by the FlashBlog to read his interview with our new FlashBlog Editor, Stefan Milićević.
