Theme: Numinous

“Maybe it’s a sign of the End Times: this may not be any god’s book, but welcome to our numinous issue. Here we have the flawed and the divine side by side in stories of a moon and woman who wax and wane, the hidden hands of a crucified man, a woman who cries for all the world, the elusive mysticism of books, the son of man made to choose, and a sweet god and a coat that won’t be beautiful.”
