What’s not to like about summertime? You’ve got our nearest star glowing celestial and hot high in the sky… you’ve got warm evenings, nature in bloom, easier commutes, longer, lazier days and overall happier people.
But you’ve also got sunburns and blisters, heat stroke and dehydration. You’ve got insect stings and bites that blow flesh up like a carnival balloon and forbidden berries and mushrooms that entice weary travelers.
Our fiction offering this issue has a bit of everything – from a psychotic serial killer that may just be cured by love to an elusive horned mammal that allows one last day of pure perfection. Enjoy!
