Published October 2014

Theme: Alternative

“And now for something completely different, our alternative issue. We have a woman looking for an alternative to absence, a narrative of doubtful historicity, a restitching of history, a choice between staying and going, and a daughter whose history seems written into the fabric of reality; not to mention mushrooms and sleep-weed to take us to another place.”
