Issue 19 (Voyages)

Every story is a journey, arguably, but we’ve gone and put together an entire issue devoted to “Voyages” (Spring 2019). This collection features stories about trips to the moon (not onboard ships but on the backs of cows or beneath the bellies of dragons); trips through outer space that take one out of body; trips across seas and cultures, leaving it all behind; trips that should be mundane but forge two lonely spirits; and trips that are guided by god and custom and handbook, and make travel a celebration and act of resistance.

Carrion House a.k.a. Luke Spooner (cover art) currently lives and works in the south of England. Having graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a first-class degree, he is now a full-time illustrator for just about any project that piques his interest. Despite regular forays into children’s books and fairy tales, his true love lies in anything macabre, melancholy, or dark in nature and essence.

Many thanks to the talented artists who drew interior art for this issue: Diana M. Chien, Sharon J. Gochenour, Pear Nuallak, Kat Weaver, Carol Wellart, and P. Emerson Williams.
