Editor's note:
Everytime, I sit down to read the submissions for a journal; I find myself in a precarious position. By opting to create a quarterly themed anthology of speculative fiction, I have opened a wide door in a narrow hallway. Nearly all fiction endeavors can fit somewhere under the umbrella. However, I find that many writers are fearful of themes unless they are an established genre. Our first two issues yeilded more submissions than I knew what to do with, our themes were vampires and werewolves. An interesting trend has developed as we have more and more obscure or specific themes, like Cthulhu or Sirens, our submission numbers dwindle but the overall quality of the work improves.
This is perhaps the most poetry laden issue Prospective will ever print, but I believe that is due to the mythology of the Siren.
It always amazes me how a writer will take the title of an upcoming issue and turn it into something completely unexpected, yet, still connect with the theme of the journal. This issue is full of gems that twist "When Sirens Call". Thank you for reading and supporting independent press.
