“Here again, like a fossil with a still, soft heart hidden beneath its stone, I stand in front of this tomb. You left, Grace. You left too quickly. White skin, thin fingers, inky hair tied off your face. Wings for arms, rubies in your eyes. That’s how I imagine you, down there; intact, but cold. Motionless, but ready to fly—if only you wanted to. Or perhaps you are in fact flying right now…”

Remember that one movie...? Not only does Daniel M. Kimmel take us back in time to look at the movies that influenced us but he also explores how they continue to shape our genre today. Grab some popcorn and get ready to reminisce and discover.
A well crafted poem is very like a Japanese ninja sword, or ninjatō. Folding and layering metaphor and metal results in an instrument of precision, beauty and utility. Both ninja and poets rely on these creations. They are tools that change dynasties and protect the weak. In Word Ninja, Linda D. Addison explores the latest offerings from the dark poetry world and how they affect us... and possibly our future.
To speculate is to form a conjecture about a subject without firm evidence, something Angela Yuriko Smith indulges in daily. After years of being told to pipe down, she has finally found a quarterly forum where she can voice her opinion about all sorts of things—but most often about the thin paper veil between our world and that of words.
