Since 2009, the Bards and Sages Quarterly has brought fans of speculative fiction an amazing variety of short stories from both new and established authors. Each issue sets out to introduce readers to the wealth of talent found in the horror, fantasy and science fiction genres. Our authors have included Nebula, Hugo, and Pushcart winners and nominees. This issue includes stories from Emile Dayne, James Mallinson, Beth Rodriguez, Carl Alves, Ian Edward Smith, Octavia Cade, Richard Zwicker, Ash Silverlock, Darrel Duckworth, Joyce Chng, Wil Ogden, and Heather Morris.
