Letter from the Editors

Dear Reader, Welcome to the November 2017 issue of Electric Spec! Winter is coming, and we've got five new stories to carry you through:

  • "Sparks" by Heather Morris: When nine of the Dictator's ten cadres are hunting you, you've got to keep moving. So what kind of spark does it take to get you to stop?
  • "The Ballad of the Blind Hunt" by Matthew Hornsby: Two hunters are out for revenge in post-apocalyptic Texas. But you can't hunt the traditional way when your target is a pure-strain alpha freak.
  • "Clara" by Adriana K. Weinert: Some kids would be thrilled to have their toys come to life. Unless they're like Clara's toys.
  • "The Fish Kite" by Mary E. Lowd: Most people wonder what would happen if you could start over. In this tale, you'll find out what happens when that option is no longer available.
  • "The Chain Outside of Time" by Aaron Proctor: What if deja vu wasn't a fleeting moment but a full-time occurrence? Find out what life would be like in this thought-provoking story.

And don't forget our "Editor's Corner" where Lesley L. Smith shares chapter one of her new novel Conservation of Luck.

We hope you enjoy these stories as much as we did!

Thanks for reading,
The Electric Spec Team
