Fantasy, science fiction, horror, and literary short fiction for the modern reader.
This month's original stories are each about regret in some aspect or another. Obsessing about it, giving into it, denying it by taking that leap of faith.
First, from Edward Ashton, a literary thriller, "Vernal Fall."
Next, "Women's Work," a paranormal gothic fantasy in only a thousand words written Amelia Aldred.
And finally, a haunting romance plus mythical creatures in "A Lumberjack's Guide to Dryad Spotting," by Charles Payseur.
In addition, we have "A Woman's Glory," a literary reprint by Ashley Kunsa that first appeared in issue #10 of the Los Angeles Review, and won the A Room of Her Own Orlando Prize for 2011.
