So, so excited to get my copy of A cappella Zoo's 12th Issue! Huge thanks to Lisa McCool-Grime and Colin Meldrum for providing so much thoughtful feedback. And the cover by Erick Laubach is awesome, too!

Known for their great magic realism, surrealism, and slipstream, A cappella Zoo is a great magazine for genre writers with emotional sincerity :) Check them out!
