Editor’s Note Courtney Seybold
J.M.J. Dear Readers, It’s an exciting time of year, full of summer adventures and new pages to be turned. In honor of that spirit, we’re exploring the Westward Expansion in this issue. From the exciting mystery in A Hancock Misadventure to the sweet lesson of Sunflower Seeds, we’ve created a selection of fantastic short stories, reviews, articles, and other odds and ends themed around a particularly captivating era. We also have a wonderful interview with author Nathan Bolduc, who was kind enough to give us his insights on the writer’s life. As always, we sincerely hope you enjoy our work and wish you all happy reading!
