Wait!  Don’t Go!

In the past we’ve asked you, dear reader, to bear with us, to stretch your minds and hearts, to try new things.

For example, last March we asked you to indulge us in a Horror issue. You trusted us, and we gave you four terribly creepy tales that we hope you enjoyed, despite your preconceived notions of what makes horror what it is.

We’re asking you to trust us again. This time with Science Fiction.

Ray Bradbury, a legendary master of science fiction as an art form, a writer whose work you probably read in high school, said this about Science Fiction

Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn’t exist yet, but soon will, and will change everything for everybody, and nothing will ever be the same again. As soon as you have an idea that changes some small part of the world you are writing science fiction. It is always the art of the possible, never the impossible.

How true. And, in our opinion, Science Fiction is at its greatest when it touches the heart as well. Our four stories this month do all that in spectacular and beautiful ways. From heartbreaking apocalypse to heartwarming sequel; from sweet revenge in an alien saloon to bitter heartbreak in a robot scrapyard.

Enjoy!
