As we enter the summer months, we’re always looking for some fast-paced reading. This month is just the cure for the summertime reading blues. We start off with the second half of The Egg by Art Blue, this piece called The Egg Becoming Alpha. Art continues his exploration of the future, where all of us are going, but few others than Art have ever been. Art continues to dazzle us and make us scratch our heads. Please enjoy the month’s omelet. Wu, who began her exciting series, she rezzed, has brought us the second in her series (#2), where we bask in her sumptuous imagery. We’re looking forward to a long collaboration with Wu. RoseDrop Rust, who has contributed so many wondrous poems to rez, takes his hand at a short story, and what a story it is. Fabulous. We’ve been hoping for a long time that Adrian Blair would contribute another of his stunning poems, this one being Ellipsis, which is a moving piece, full of the tenderness of the human heart. Cat Boccaccio, who you know so well from earlier issues, is back with an exquisite piece of short fiction, The Accident. We’re looking forward to hearing a lot more from Cat in future issues. And bringing the July issue to a close is another beautiful poem by Wolfgang Glinka entitled The Blueberry Cage. I hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as we’ve loved putting it together for you. Enjoy your summer reading!
