Sacrifices make heroes (or cowards) of us all. This issue of Ideomancer provides us with a wide variety of sacrifices, large and small. Haddayr Copely-Woods shares the trials of the reluctant artists’ inspiration in “Hot”. With Hannah Bowen’s “Tin Cup Heart”, we see the kinds of sacrifices a man makes in the name of love. Amanda Downum, in her short story, “The Moon, the Garden, the Wall”, allows us a glimpse at guilty sacrifices, and Sarah Monette’s “Letter from a Teddy Bear on Veteran’s Day” visits sacrifices, old and new.
Our poets this month, Samantha Henderson and s.c. virtes, continue the theme with “Hero” and “adam inquisitive”.
Meanwhile, Sean Melican, our Ideo reviewer, catches us up on his summer reads.
Please enjoy this quarter’s issue!
