excerpt from issue 4

"The sky pressed down from above, a heavy blue palm like the hand of God. The sun was still there, its light weak and timorous, but it was in flight. It fled across the fabric of the sky; I watched it go. The shadows pooled and formed and chased each other across our lawn like in a time-lapse photograph. No one noticed except for me, and I kept silent." Read more of "Unbound" by Brittany Reid Warren...

The Strangers are Tuning by Jesse Lindsay

Issue 4

... begins with the end of the world and moves on from there. From the unromantically magical take on Ragnarøk in the lead story "Unbound" to the curious history of squid in "A Man of Kiri Maru", this issue is steeped in mythos, making use of the old familiar tales and some new ones, mixing cosmologies from around the world—and from other worlds as well. But the focus, be it of prose, poetry, or art, is always on the human—on the clashes between imagination and reality, on choices and redemption, on what the Other can tell us about ourselves.
