Confrontations catch our attention in this issue of Ideomancer. David Schwartz lets loose with a hurricane and a weatherman in “Virginie and the Fool”. Sam Minier blinds us with a brief glimpse into the confrontations of war in his tale, “7th Period Bayonet Class.” “The Sun’s Kiss” by Yoon Ha Lee provides an intimate look at two characters from mythology. In “The McMahon Institute for Unquiet Minds”, Tade Thompson juxtaposes the sane and the insane. Our poem this month is by Lon Prater, “God Presents Her Wayward Child.”
In addition, we present an interview with Stephen Baxter and reviews of Ian R. MacLeod’s The Summer Isles, Mothers and Other Monsters by Maureen McHugh, and Kelly Link’s Magic for Beginners.
We hope you enjoy this quarter’s issue!
