A message from the editors:
Welcome to the first anniversary edition of Electric Spec. Thank you to all
of our readers, the artist Cile, and especially our authors for making our
little 'zine such a success. To help celebrate our first anniversary, this
issue has a special treat: an interview with 2007 SFWA Grand Master, James
Gunn. He tells us why reading fiction is like sex and how we can save the world
with science fiction.
Our exciting and diverse collection of fiction is a treat as well. A pair of
wizards must save the world from an insane demon in "Possession is Nine
Parts." "The Comfort of Mirrors" features a mathematician facing his own
demons when his clones suffer from a disturbing epidemic. In "Any Given
Shadow," nothing is what is seems when a musician realizes his band is
playing for some very unexpected guests. For military sci-fi fans, the
futuristic "Perfect Soldier" addresses the timely issue of combating
terrorism. On a lighter note, professional wrestling and ancient
deities take epic fantasy to a whole new - and hilarious - level in "The
Rainbow Bridge." Finally, Editor's Corner features the flash piece, "Death
by Submission," in which a cranky editor realizes she will never read a
better story in her life than the one on the desk in front of her.
