Message from the Editors

As we begin our second quarterly year, the editors at Electric Spec are excited to present our first issue of 2011. We have a variety of dark and light stories in the fantasy, science fiction, and horror genres.

"The Untold Story of an Executioner" by Dawn Lloyd is a chilling tale about maybe the worst job ever. "End User" by A.L. Sirois is a horrific story with a character that definitely does not follow Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics. "Birth of a New Day" by Fredrick Obermeyer is a unique fantasy in which daybreak requires a special kind of midwife. "What Eats You" by Sara Kate Ellis is a near-future adventure involving role-playing and political correctness taken to the extreme. "Touch of Poison" by Jaelithe Ingold is a traditional fantasy in which a power struggle has a very unexpected outcome.

In Editor's Corner, Lesley L. Smith presents the humorous quantum romance "Getting Lucky". We are also pleased to share an interesting and amusing interview of award-winning Urban Fantasy author Mario Acevedo. Enjoy!
