Allow us to introduce ourselves…
G. E. Butler, Chief Editor
Nice to meet you! I am a fiction author with short and flash fiction publications in various small presses. As an author, I have always been drawn to the realms of dreams and myth, to the ancients stories of the fantastic that we tell each other to communicate feelings we don’t understand. Though I am grateful to the journals who gave my voice a chance, I decided to begin my own online literary journal after discovering a thin, curious line that still divides what is known as “speculative fiction” from the rest of the literary world. My team and I wanted to create a space for authors who have interests similar to our own, who wish to write about the fantastic and celebrate its unique literary appeal. Below are the fabulous writers I am privileged to work with.
Flora Soper, Co-editor and Social Media Specialist
Growing up in a small town in Florida, where not a lot of exciting things happened, Flora instead turned to documentaries and novels to fill her childhood. She became fascinated with history and how small events held the possibility of altering existing or future timelines. Her reading interests span from historical fiction to fantasy to nonfiction. She prefers to write historical pieces with fictional twists, but enjoys experimentation in varied genres.
Amy Clement, Co-editor and Social Media Specialist
Florida-born and raised on the coasts, country, and suburbs, Amy has always had an attraction to the marriage of nature and history that stems from the state’s roots. Her literary tastes are varied, but she is most interested in the mixing of water, land, and plant with human nature, existentialism, and the intangible. Her most favored reading and writing styles are Southern Gothic, regionalism, sentimentalism, and supernaturalism.
Sarah Jackson, Co-editor
Sarah Jackson lives on the edge of Epping Forest in London, UK. She writes short stories mostly, across sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. She loves speculative fiction because of the unique tools it gives us to share and to visit each other’s inner worlds—and because she likes robots, dragons, and ghosts. She’s looking forward to reading your story.
Art Lawrence, Co-editor
Born and raised in the Midwest U.S., Art has always been drawn to the genres of science-fiction and fantasy and the new worlds that accompany them. In his reading and writing, he enjoys to explore society, different peoples, the way they interact, the peril of when they clash, and more. The lens of these new, exciting worlds is his medium.
