A message from the editors:

        Welcome to Volume I, Issue 3 of Electric Spec.
        We've selected a group short stories that are as good as anything you'll find on the Web--or, for that matter, in print.
       "Fade to Black" marks a second appearance by author Stephen L. Antczak, who enjoys twisting readers' minds in new directions and does so brilliantly in this dark SF sleuth story. "The Second Queen" and "Carom Shot" reveal that political intrigue appears in many guises, but always makes for a great read. If you hook into "Sub-Tracks," lay off the Auntie M or the story might just blow your mind. In "The One-Legged Assassin," a detective follows a trail of laughs to catch a slippery villain. "Behind Enemy Lines" exposes a war in which everyone participates, even you. Finally, Editor's Corner features "Welcome to Cybermate," David E. Hughes' take on the future of electronic, government-approved dating.
        Happy reading!
