What’s in Issue 373

Novel Diana reads Sarina’s notes for her biography. Sarina has really gotten around:
Robert N. Stephenson, Uttuku
The old saying “What goes around, comes around” takes on a whole new meaning with a bibelot from a kitsch factory: Bob Brill, The Curse of the Shepherdess, part 1; part 2; conclusion.

New contributor Victoria Elliott spins a fairy tale out of an urban legend and casts doubt on The Luck of Mikhail Samsonovich.

New contributor James A. Ford examines the extreme measures that may be needed in an emergency when... Stack Goes Walking, part 1; conclusion.

New contributor C. L. Kelley introduces a character who literally sees ‘the handwriting on the wall’. But the writing is dark art — very dark: Glyphs, part 1; part 2; conclusion.
What’s a mother to do? At least the house didn’t burn down: Ron Van Sweringen, The Crystal Fruit Bowl.

Mutated cuckoos don’t seem to need foster parents: Julie Wornan, The Eggs.
