Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Cheryl W. Ruggiero
Our very own Carmen Ruggero reports that Cheryl and she share the same original family name. Whether or not there is a connection in their family trees, we think the coincidence is a happy one.
Cheryl lives in the mountains of southwestern Virginia, where she can watch her grandchildren chase lightning bugs in the evenings before a summer rain. Her own grandfather owned an extensive collection of pulp fiction, and now Cheryl says she wishes she’d read more of it when she was young. But Cheryl has made up for it, in a way, by publishing extensively in short fiction and poetry.
This welcome message is really somewhat unorthodox, because Cheryl is not officially a “new contributor,” at least not yet. She has a short story, “Designer Deities,” coming up very soon, before the end of the quarter.
In this issue Cheryl opens or continues a discussion in The Critics’ Corner, in “Naming Characters.” And this is not the first time Cheryl has contributed to our Departments. We stand by our name, “Bewildering” Stories, and we’ll welcome whomever we like, whenever it seems appropriate, especially when we sense a kindred spirit.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Cheryl. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
