From the Editor:

And we’re back! Great issue this one, with two new writers joining us. A. P. Davidson gives us “Stockholm Syndrome,” which is not about a hostage situation, and Griffin Barber came up with some interesting characters in his story “Bank On It.”

Jack Carroll is back with us this issue with “In Remembrance,” and David Carrico contributes “The Evening of the Day.” Both stories have some sadness to them, but then, well, life does that, doesn’t it? Robert E. Water’s brings us “The Great Grantville Gander Pull,” and we find out that even in our supposedly enlightened age, sometimes cruel things are gotten away with.

Ever get annoyed with a teenager? Then you’ll sympathize with the characters in Kerryn Offord’s “Our Man in Grantville” for sure. Bjorn Hasseler was the winner of a challenge to write us a short story of exactly 1,232 words. His winning entry is “Snipe Hunt.” And Rainer Prem is back with episode three of “Ein feste Burg,” which is getting very colorful these days.

Nonfiction from Iver P. Cooper is more about airships, this one “Airship Propulsion, Part Two: Revving Up.” So if you want to build your own, take a look.

R. J. Ortega really means “Outside the Box,” but it’s not necessarily thinking outside the box that he’s talking about. And Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s column, Notes From The Buffer Zone, has a title that we’ve all experienced, “The English Class from Hell.” How could you pass that up?
