Starting off the batch is “Forge of The Soul” by Jason Kahn, which takes us to Doylestown, Pennsylvania, a small town about to be struck by fear and paranoia last seen around 40 years earlier, in another small town called Salem.
Next up we have another piece from Something Wicked alumni, Paul Marlowe, entitled “Cotton Avicenna B iv” which places us in the dingy back alleys of London one Victorian night, and features the founder of The Etheric Explorer’s club, Rafe Maddox.
Scott Brendel’s “Groundswell of Love” is about a rather unfortunate event, that, coupled with a momentary lapse of concentration, results in a pretty bleak (but surprisingly funny) outcome.
And to close off our issue we have a beautiful piece by Damien Filer about a girl whose somewhat ill brother requires a life-changing favour from her, in “Herman’s Bad Seed”.
Our Feature Interview for September is with Diane Awerbuck, award-winning author of Gardening At Night and Cabin Fever.
And that, along with our usual Writers Cornered interviews and the non-fiction pieces for this month, is our issue.
Thanks for reading.
