Bold. Brief. Beautiful. Fiction in fewer words.

This issue showcases some of the reprints we purchased from previous authors. I was drawn to each and every one because of an ethereal quality to the story. There’s a deep yearning in each for love, for freedom, for life, and when you really compare them all, they seem the same need that comes from deep inside our humanity.

In this month’s issue:
– Editorial by Executive Editor Samantha L. Strong
– “All the Arms We Need” by Kristina Ten
– “The Bones and Their Girl” by Sylvia Heike
– “Air Kisses” by Damon Shaw
– “Bread of Life” by Beth Cato
