Simultaneous arrival of warm weather and Menacing Hedge’s Spring Edition!
This issue marks the first batch of short fiction selected just by my hand, so I do hope everyone enjoys these six stories. I wade through hundreds of submissions to come up with a handful of perfect diamonds, and it will never cease to amaze me that I get to do this: assemble a banquet of stories written by authors far more adept at both wordsmithing and navigating the imagination.
Spring also marks the first issue with Susan Yount as official Menacing Hedge Artist! Her work is so darkly beautiful.
So have it! Poetry and fiction, sunshine and blood.
