It’s almost unbelievable that it’s been 15 years since 9/11, yet this milestone is upon us. Jullianna Juliesse helps us remember those who perished on that ignominious day with her piece, Numbers. rez Magazine also honors those fallen heroes with this issue. But we have so much to celebrate as well, including [muse] dance company’s production of Fiddler on the Roof, which premieres at Origen’s Chinese Playhouse on the September 15th, and also opens at the [muse] Theatre on September 25th. Figure out a way, by hook or by crook, to see this fantastic entertainment. Cyberphoria came out of nowhere to bring us a look at The Monument, where we’re reminded that nothing is safe, nothing is reliable. Should we be afraid, or should we just eat more dark chocolate? Lisa Launay joins our pages with a thought-provoking piece, The Little Voices. I’m inclined to listen to Lisa’s voices and recommend that you do also. You all know the sublime poetry of Rusty (RoseDrop Rust), but lately we’ve been featuring his short fiction, and this month we offer The Cabin Boy, which settles Rusty as one of the preeminent writers we have here in the metaverse. Our favorite Mariner Trilling remembers the difficulty of snagging that special pad with This Apartment, which reminds us how much we love his contributions. Flynt Firebrand questions the misunderstood vanilla bean in his wonderful poem, Vanilla. Cat Boccaccio has stopped asking her questions and is now giving her answers, this month with Unpredictable, a short confection that makes us yearn for more. And lastly, when you’re whitewater rafting down difficult passages with no food, and someone offers you peyote buttons instead, what do you do? Consuela Hypatia Caldwell offers one obvious response. Enjoy!
