It’s February, and while some people’s thoughts turn to love, Ideomancer’s turns to crossing borders — or at least coming close.
We begin with Jay Lake’s hunt and the insight that allows one to cross into enlightenment. Charles Tuomi follows with a haunting tale of a man determined to test the narrow border that separates him from his wife. Jeremiah Tolbert brings us a story of an old man, his axe, and mortality. In addition, Greg Van Eekhout, our Featured Author, polishes his city, giving us a glimpse of what lies beneath.
Finally, I dive into the field of YA in order to bring you a book review on the first volume of The Bartimaeus Trilogy. Why should kids have all the fun?
Hope you enjoy this month’s issue!
