Enchanted gardens

Faithful readers,

With the adrenaline and dash of traveling this month, I've hardly had time to post to the blog - so I will drop a quote that I find quite beautiful, to give our blog's readers a bite to chew on while waiting for a more substantial post:

"(A spell there was, surely, in this garden. I could almost hear it humming over the water, voices chanting in a language I did not know but understood.) I think it held everyone, even Hildegrin, even Agia. For some time we rowed in silence; I saw geese, alive and content for all I could tell, bobbing a long way off; and once, like something in a dream, the nearly human face of a manatee looking into my own through a few spans of brownish water."

- Gene Wolfe, The Book of the New Sun

Hopefully you are all traveling, too.

If you haven't, take a look at the website for our journal - we are calling for submissions for myth, fairy tale, and the fantastic, in preparation for the launch of our first issue -

I will be posting more often, so stay tuned -
