speculative prose

Issue 22 (Archives)

“Archives” are more than sacred hoards in various states of array. They are under our feet in the very rock, and under the skulls of humans. Fate finds creative ways to preserve our memories, and the relics of vanished cultures, and the shades of people themselves. The stories in this issue (Fall 2020) are about memory and preservation, for good or for ill, natural and unnatural.
