Issue Description:Forget a walk in the snow and throw an extra log on the fire—this year’s winter double issue will thrill and chill you with its twists and turns. Some familiar faces are in town for the holidays, as four series continue: Gallery owner Tony Bridgman returns in “The Art of Authentication” by Christopher Welch, and this time the action hits too close to home; Detective Lieutenant Cyrus Auburn and private eye R. J. Carr are both on the case, in John H. Dirckx’s “Dead Man’s Shoes” and S. L. Franklin’s “Worst Case Scenario,” respectively; and Pandora Parson appears with her signature wit in a satisfying puzzler (“Pandora’s Station” by Gilbert Stack).
This season you can sing a merry tune with Robert Lopresti in the colorful tale “Devil Chased the Wolf Away,” and do some Black Friday shopping with Kristine Kathryn Rusch in her story of revenge and financial espionage, “Sheltered Assets.” Tim Chapman and Robert S. Levinson shine their light on the domestic realm in “The Seed” and “After Daddy Died.”
Rounding off the issue is a story by Leah Cutter that allows you to travel to a distant place and time (“The Curious Case of Rabbit and the Temple Goddess”). You'll want to try your hand at our flash fiction contest, The Mysterious Photograph contest. Enjoy 192 pages of mischief and mayhem . . . after all, ’tis the season!
