Letter from the Editors

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the first installment of Electric Spec for 2017! We're starting our twelfth year. W00t! W00t!
We remain as committed as ever to be an opportunity for authors and artists to bring their work to the public.
Thus, we are proud to bring you five fabulous speculative fiction tales:

  • In "The 'aiei of Snow" D.A. D'Amico shares a beautiful fantasy about family and everything that comes with it.
  • David Bowles creates an amazing mash-up of high energy physics and native mythology in "Quintessence".
  • Kathryn Yelinek's "The Improbable Library" lets us visit the fantastic library we wish we could go to again and again.
  • Jay Barnson makes our skin crawl with "Crawlers." Let's just say, natural disasters could be even more terrifying than we might have thought.
  • In the humorous "General Notice to Off-World Visitors" Dana Martin puts troublesome tourists on notice.
  • In Editor's Corner Nikki Baird presents "Author Interview: Laurence MacNaughton." Laurence has a lot of helpful advice and even some freebies...
We hope you enjoy this issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you!

Thanks for reading,
The Electric Spec Team
