read the February issue of rez in Issuu:
With January whipping by as it has, it can’t be long
before New Year’s Eve! So to keep you fully stocked with good reading, the
February issue is loaded with not just good writing, but filled with great
pieces by some of SL’s finest writers.
We’re all incredibly busy, but if you only have a short time to devote
to reading, I hope you’ll find rez perfectly
suited for your needs. We start off with
one of the best parables we’ve ever printed in rez (and we’ve printed quite a few good ones over the years), a remarkable
story about a forlorn gecko, written by Shyla the Super Gecko. How the Gecko Died is simply wonderful
and we thought it appropriate to start off the issue with this intriguing epic
poem. Art Blue is up to his usual tricks
again, taking us in and out of alternate realities in the second installment of
Sand Meets Water (there’s one more
coming in the March issue). Trust me. You’ll want Art with you when The
Singularity comes. Cat Boccaccio has been saying more with less than anyone we
know. This month, Cat introduces us to
Leep, the main character of her micro-fiction story, Peeps for Leep. I’m hoping
we’ll see more of Leep in future issues.
It’s a charming story with a surprise ending. You all know Aorist Chunes from her fashion
column in rez called The Roundabout. But I bet you didn’t know that she is a
remarkably accomplished poet. It’s with
great pride that we introduce this multi-faceted beauty’s poetry with her
deeply felt and thought provoking poem, Fracas.
We hope this will be the first of many from Aorist. And what can we say about
Jullianna Juliesse? She keeps getting better and better, this month bringing us
two of her best, the first being Sabbath
Prayer, and the second being La Belle
au Bois Dormant. To say that we’re grateful for her continuing
contributions is an understatement. We’re much more than grateful for her
prodigious talent. After too long of an absence, DonJuan Writer is back with Art!? Has Anyone Seen Art?!, taking a
closer look at the creative process. Aorist Chunes’ installment this month of The Roundabout is called Families, Feudalism, and Free Markets in SL. Aorist has a keen eye not just for fashion,
but for how fashion fits in our world. Stay tuned for more fashion insights
from Aorist in coming issues. Wu has been delighting us with her unpredictable
but always entertaining column, She
Rezzed. This month marks her sixth installment and she will leave you
enchanted with her latest offering. Art Blue takes another look at the Chelsea
Hotel and introduces us to a new art talent, SHTutti, in Rembrandt Meets Tutti.
Rembrandt doesn’t have anything on Tutti. So there you have it, our
contribution to the arts here in SL and our gift to you, our esteemed readers.
The State of the Arts, as you will read, is very strong. Jami Mills https://issuu.com/rezslmagazine/docs/february_2018
