This issue is smaller one than normal for us. That isn’t to say that we didn’t receive a lot of good stories—many that were definitely publishable—but only these five sufficiently stood out among the submissions since our January issue. We’re certain that none of these five will disappoint you.
We don’t single out any pieces in an issue as being better than the others, but you might find it interesting to read and compare “Died Rich” and “Whence We Came, Whither We Go” because they both explore a similar theme, yet they are very different stories with different outcomes.
The other three are just as different from those two and explore themes of loss, arrogance, greed, and regret. While those might sound like depressing stories, we assure you that they are anything but.
Enjoy, and as always, please leave comments for our dedicated authors to show your appreciation of their work.
