In Times to Come
Issue 128, due on line December 20th, will be our Holidays issue, with the theme of the season being celebrated by a story from a new contributor. We’ll also be hearing from some returning veterans who go back a ways. In the novels, Michael E. Lloyd has Carla ratchet up the skullduggery, and Julian Lawler’s Palance Demondread finds that his quest to rescue his lady Andina is turning into one Damned Thing after another.
Readers’ reactions are always welcome.
