Issue 12 (Animals)

Issue 12 (Fall 2016) is the bestiary we always knew we wanted. This “Animals” collection features one, perhaps two (if you squint) traditional animal tales. The other five stories are hardly the stuff of nurseries, full of shadowy creatures that creep and skitter, slink and lunge.
