About the Author
Following we have "Reanimators" by J. Kenneth Sargeant and, hold on to your horses and watch people roll their eyes � it's a zombie story. Before you judge, read it; it's different, fresh, and highly entertaining.
Next is a reprint from Kate O'Connor, "Concert of Flowers," followed by an apocalyptic story with an unusual premise by Andrew Kozma, " These Are the Things Our Hands Have Made."
Then we have Ferret Steinmentz with "Four Scenes From Wieczniak's Whisk-U-Away, And One Not," and J.W. Alden with "The Unworthy."
We didn't forget about very short pieces in this issue either. We know a lot of people love them. In this category, we feature "Million Hearts in the Valley of Death," by Savannah Hendricks, "Marshmallow Walls," by Brittany Foster, and " Grimm's Home for Geriatrics," by Rebecca Demarest.
Brandon Barrows entertains us in his war story "Verdure," and Michelle Ann King talks about "The Fine Art of Fortune-Telling," two stories that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Last but not least, we are closing the fiction section with "JC The Ski Bum," a fun, humorous piece by Joyce Reynolds-Ward.
