Read the April 2014 issue of rez in Issuu:

The April issue's cover feature is one of SL's most beloved singer/songwriters, AMForte Clarity, who was kind enough to sit down with Jami Mills and give an insightful interview about just what makes her tick.  Our own visionary, Art Blue, gives us a glimpse into the cyber-future with the third installment of his epic, The Artefact: I Am Substance. I Am Art.  Poet Luna Branwen, a regular contributor to our pages, shows us another side of herself with the haunting Silence in the Night.  Stihly Augenblick and Hitomi Tamatzui continue to thrill us with The Key to Golden Hills: Jing-Wei, another chapter of their exciting noir serial.  Crap Mariner asks us to think about the master composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, in an entirely new way in Mozart.  In Silly Babbit, Gudrun Gausman considers the history of rabbits in the Easter tradition (beware: it is X-rated). The newest member of our family, Zymony Guyot, in his poem I Know, ask very difficult questions about greed, politics and justice. Finally, The Perfect Gentleman (otherwise known as Harry Bailey) goes back to his humble beginnings and tests the SL waters as a noob, and is more than surprised by his reception.

The January issue of rez pays tribute to one of SL's most talented singer/songwriters, Quantamis Navarathna, who passed away unexpectedly last December after a brief illness.  We honor his talent and his humanity. We've included in this issue the lyrics of his song, To Sedona: I Wish You Peace.  We won't forget him anytime soon. We also introduce a fresh new direction this month with the first chapter of a cybertech thriller, The Artefact, by the talented futurist, Art Blue.  Regular contributor, Luna Branwen, gives us a thoughtful poem, Our Business, which examines the role of creativity and just how much is really original.  In On the Street with Gazinia, StarGazer Daylight interviews Gazinia, a self-proclaimed "person on the street," about her insights into the fashion world, and gets some great shopping tips in the bargain.  Gudrun Gausman offers us some historical perspective on the origins of New Year's resolutions.  (I, for one, resolve to read more Gudrun Gausman in the coming year.)  Gudrun also tips her hat to "the dour grain" in her poem Oatmeal, and shares with our readers some of her favorite recipes (even some savory versions). Sedona Mills reminisces about 2013 and contemplates what shape her New Year's resolutions may take in her article, Sedona's New Year's Resolutions. And finally, Crap Mariner makes a wish in When You Wish Upon a Star, then promptly wishes he hadn't.
