April Issue Live
Hopefully our ~14-hour delay in getting this month’s issue of the Kaz off the launchpad has only heightened your anticipation. In our April issue, you’ll find our first-ever, bonafide short story, penned by the sure hand of Michael Haynes. If you can’t change the past, what can you change? Read What You Can Change to find out.
In addition to our new feature, the short story (and check out our short story call if you want to submit), we’ve got four fine responses to our March 713 Flash prompt: In a broken forest, three chairs made from bone sit in a circle. Our writers did wonderful things with this sliver of language. Be sure to check out Bone Joiners by Jillian Schmidt, Shortcut by Clarissa Pattern, At the End of the Primrose Path by Bernard S Gaidasz, and Vacant Thrones by Michael Haynes.
Ms. Schmidt and Ms. Pattern are new to the Kaz this month; long-time readers will be familiar with Mr. Gaidasz (Nov 2011) and Mr. Haynes (Oct 2011, Dec 2011, Feb 2012) from previous stories. We’ve enjoyed these writers’ stories so much, and we hope you will to.
In this issue, once again, we’re lucky to have a piece illustrated by our own, wonderfully talented Ted Wilson. Check out his work that adorns Mr. Haynes’ story. As well, this issue, we’re honored to showcase the work of Justine McGreevy, whose work accompanies Ms. Schmidt’s fine story.
We’re lucky to have found such wonderful and talented writers and artists. We hope you enjoy the products of their energies as much as we have.
As always, if you like a story, please share it on your favorite social network.
Last, if you are submitting, remember not to include your name on the manuscript. We read blind, so names kill the anonymity. Manuscripts with names or other identifying markers are deleted outright.
Enough of me. Time for the stories.
