This is kind of new to me. Magazines, the whole ezine scene. But I think we’re onto something altogether unique here; a showcase of artists of varying backgrounds and styles getting together to present examples of their viewpoint and perspective on the subject of the month, this month’s being transhumanism. (Not to mention a slew of fantastic artwork!) We kept it simple this time, orbiting one particular idea whereas in the future we plan on branching out into fantasy and horror and every subgenre there is. A scattergun of genre writing, if you will (albeit a scattergun with a high-powered scope.)Added to that, going along with that same metaphor, this short fiction, poetry and artwork is of the highest caliber from some of the most talented artists out there. They are exceptional talents, beyond measure. So. A new year with new endeavors and new resolutions—if you go for that sort of thing. A time to buckle on the can-do spirit, that “screw it, let me try, I don’t care if I get hurt” mindset. Dive headlong with eyes open into new things. That’s what we’re doing here. Like Slim Pickens, ridin’ that sucker to the atomic end. Thanks for being here with us, as we too try something new. We appreciate it. -Andrew Post Editor-in-chief, Conjectural Figments
