Hello, everyone!  We have survived the Oklahoma tornadoes and have another great issue of GlassFire for you!  We were fortunate not to have too much damage from the storms.  We appreciate the concerned emails and Facebook messages we received from authors and readers.  We’re hoping the rest of the summer won’t be quite so crazy.

This issue features five awesome short stories.  We’ve got a tale of two couples brought together by a pair of cats and a story about two friends whose search for a television reveals more than they expected.  Visit an Australian restaurant where the owner has come up with a hot new menu item.  We jump to a world of artificial intelligence and then to a fantasy world where a witch has to deal with invaders in her garden. 

We hope you enjoy these fun stories.  Our fall issue will return to our usual mixture of fiction and poetry.  We’re also taking submissions for our winter issue.  The deadline is September 30. 

Until next time, keep writing and reading!
