Greetings Ooky Readers!
Before anything else, I want to wish you the ookiest Halloween ever! I trust that everything Issue 10 has to offer will put you in the mood for ghoulish festivities.
First of all, I know your reading time for Issue 9 was cut in half thanks to my big fat computer crash last month, so my deal is this: I am publishing Issue 10 like normal, but all the articles, stories and the novel installment from Issue 9 are still on the site, just below those of Issue 10.
Personal life events have been that Rosie received an ‘Eagle Winner’ medal from her school, she began taking swimming lessons, and her recently pierced ears are healed and she can change her earrings. She is delighted with her life these days, and I am proud as punch of her. Joey is coming up on his fourth birthday, and is growing up much faster than I would like, though he is a terrific helper when I’m puttering around, reaching things I can’t bend and stretch for. And he loves watching Food Network in the afternoon. We are good buddies.
I FINALLY got the computer fixed, and so far so good, though I don’t want to get cocky because when I think everything is going smoothly…yeah….that’s when it says “screw you I’m gonna rock your world now!” : /
I have a couple of ideas in the works to publish Owl's Eye View as a series of ebooks. It’s in the very beginning stages right now, so I will keep you posted on whatever progress I make.
Getting over a head cold…I’m hoping this column isn’t too weird because I’m punchy from cold meds. But then, it’s a weird magazine, so my bizarreness should fit right in.
So on to the ookiness inside this issue:
In “From the Perch” this issue, Meredith Alden tells us about a straggler
Oneida who wants
into the Oneida Dimension. Is Meredith’s
power strong enough to get through to Lucy?
Nathan Williams continues his interviews with the “Mist Kids,” this issue talking with talented artist and museum curator Josh Reynolds over subs and beers. “Swooping Through the Years” gets meaty this issue.
Lisa Galloway ponders in ‘Visceral Verse’ what happens when a guardian angel fails…
Melanie Mirth gives a whole new perspective on the old what-I-did-on-my-summer-vacation story in “Macabre Mirth.”
Larry Nunn chills us with a story of ooky souvenirs brought home from a concert in “Screech On!”
All kinds of pirates are on the water these days—some small—some big—some massive—some just want a “Warm Meal.”
The imagination is a powerful thing…but reality one-ups it in my story, “Monster Out.”
And there’s a real zinger in store for you in the fourth installment of “True Crime Shelf” this issue.
So curl up with your back to the wall, and prepare yourself for a sleepless night.
