It's so wonderful to see the summer issue finally come together. After dealing with a paper shortage, our print order was finally delivered! We'd like to thank everyone who worked on the issue and all of our amazingly talented contributors! See you in the fall with another edition!

If speculative poetry, essays, or art is more your thing, we've got several wonderful features just published in the summer issue!

Dissatisfied with computers, the poet tried all manners of pen, pencil, brush, and stylus before settling on quills. But which bird?
After years of travels and trials through time and space, she found it.
Critics agree, the poems she wrote with a T-Rex quill surpass all others.

When the Earth 'births' its core (expelling it from the Weddel Sea) the planet will become immensly lighter. The pull from the sun will take the Earth into a completely new orbit, close to where Venus is now.

The Earth, in a new form, in a new orbit will still be our home. We will complete our evolution at this time and take on our final form.

Our ultimate ending takes place as Earth falls into the sun. A long long time from now.

"...You might think you know your sci-fi history, but have you ever seen 'The Starlost'? The 'creator' of the show was the famous (or infamous) science fiction writer Harlan Ellison.

"They summon me to learn forbidden knowledge."
"And they'll get it. I am a librarian."

"In that city nothing was more ordinary than death. But the authorities still functioned, and while the authorities functioned, the city stood..." They didnโ€™t care about "us," they only cared about โ€œP for Populationโ€ which could be acceptably sacrificed or even eradicated...

Randomly decided to look at the Beksinski website today and found this piece titled Quarantine. One of my favorite artists. Also seems to be a bunch of things I've never seen on there before. Wish I could go to visit the museum in Poland.
