This month’s issue of rez Magazine brings us an abundance of talented writers and their exquisite prose, short fiction, and poetry. Art Blue teaches us the fine points of “the top of the top” coding in his wonderful piece, Swordcoder. Art takes us back into the past, then careens headlong into the future. Fasten your seatbelts. Cat Boccaccio captures a wonderful scene of generosity, love and Fate in Highway Revisited. As only she can, Cat opens a window on another world and then gently closes it again before we ever really get to know it. We’ve been waiting for just the right moment to publish RoseDrop Rust’s epic poem, and we do mean “epic,” Dragon’s Host. Rusty is at the top of his game in this nod to Joss Whedon’s cult classic, Firefly. Once you start this brilliant piece, you won’t be able to put it down. In the sixth installment of Footfalls Echo, Drover Mahogany shares his intimate thoughts on his daily walks in the Australian countryside, this time in Waiting, about the many faces of love and a “Reserved” sign on quiet corner table. Zymony Guyot returns to our pages with Flowers, his musings about the inspiration of Nature. And finally, in The Beast, JadeSecret Quan descends into the belly of the beast and describes the rawness of its longings. Please enjoy this month’s compendium of fine writing and photography. Remember, if you only have one thing to read this month, make it rez!
