Today I opened my mailbox to discover that the Necrotic Tissue Issue 7 had finally arrived. I must now recant the nasty things that I have been thinking about certain postal services. With trembling fingers, I sliced open the end of the yellow, bubble-wrapped cocoon and out slid the glossy magazine. Now the dilemma of deciding to start at the beginning and read to the end, or perhaps jump straight to the stories by Jeremy Kelly or perhaps Catherine J. Gardner whose "The Scratch of an Old Record" was selected best story. Hmm...what's a guy to do...
To help celebrate, I have dug through some old quotes to find one that, I hope, fits the occasion.
"There are certain themes of which the interest is all-absorbing, but which are too entirely horrible for the purposes of legitimate fiction."
--Edgar Allan Poe, The Premature Burial
