October 2019 issue
From the Editor
October 1st, 2019 by Stewart C Baker
This month we’re very excited to bring you all “The Soft Rumor of Spreading Weeds,” a new game from Porpentine Charity Heartscape.
This story is set in the same universe as “With Those We Love Alive,” and while you don’t need to have played that one to enjoy this, doing so might increase your enjoyment. If you want to give it a whirl, fetch a pen or other writing implement and head on over to Porpentine’s website (Go ahead! We’ll wait!).
October also brings an excellent complement of essays by Sharang Biswas and Anya Johanna DeNiro, and our lovely cover art from Laura De Stefani.
(Patreon supporters and on-site subscribers get early access to all our content on the first of the month. We’re committed to paying our authors for their work, and subscriptions help us do that in a more sustainable fashion. Otherwise, you can access content on the 15th of the month.)
