Extraordinary Possibilities Suzanne W. Vincent
Actress Kandyse McClure, best known for her portrayal of Anastasia Dualla in the Sci-Fi Channel’s Battlestar Galactica series, once said:
“I’ve always loved the power of stories to transport me to another world, to imagine extraordinary possibilities, to experience things I may not have access to in my regular life…”
With this month’s issue we hope to transport you to all kinds of extraordinary possibilities.
Like this one: What if life’s unpleasantnesses could slip from your mind? Author Stewart Baker addresses that question in his science fiction offering, “Oubliette.”
Or this: Imagine the planets as people–elegant Lady Earth, Moon trailing at her heals, gallant King Jupiter, impish little Mercury. In “One Last Night at the Carnival Before the Stars Go Out” returning Flash Fiction Online author Carolyn Yoachim brings these and many other celestial bodies to life for a few moments of sheer beauty.
And finally, author Brynn MacNab takes us to another world in a strikingly relevant fantasy offering, “I Imagine Myself as Rath Ducha,” in which the people wait for their queen to appear and save them in their time of need.
