It’s no secret that I think Halloween is the perfect excuse to give you some creepy stories, and next month’s October issue is no exception. Case in point: When a team of firefighters putting out coal seam blazes encounters seemingly unexplained phenomena, the question isn’t just how they’re happening, but whether anything can be done before it’s too late. Find out in our lead story, Alec Nevala-Lee’s “Stonebrood.” Then a bounty hunter prowls a blasted American Southwest, hoping desperately to find his target before his competitors do in Joe Pitkin’s “The Daughters of John Demetrius.” Different generations of a family don’t always see eye to eye about adopting new technology, especially when it might change the family business, as in Marie Vibbert’s “Butterflies on Barbed Wire.” Sometimes, childhood experiences only form a clear picture as adults. And sometimes that picture is one nobody else has seen before, like in Bruce McAllister’s “My Father’s Crab.” And of course we’ll have the third installment of “Night Ride and Sunrise” by Stanley Schmidt, and “Alien Adventures,” our fact article from Edward M. Lerner, as well as a bevy of our always-excellent regular columns. See you next issue!
