Editor’s Note Dear Readers,

Courtney Seybold

I was a little late in coming to an appreciation of G.K. Chesterton and his work. My husband actually deserves most of the credit for my being a Chesterton fan now. He’s a convert to Catholicism, and early on happened to discover this talented and prolific author. Manalive flipped his way of thinking on its head (as Chesterton’s writing has often been known to do) and became one of my husband’s favorite books of all time. When we were still dating he insisted that I read it, and from there on out I was hooked. Chesterton has such a clear perspective on every subject he expresses himself on, and always manages to make me see a familiar thing in an unexpected way . . . or an unexpected thing in a familiar way. Though sometimes his writing can be hard to get through – I blame my dwindling attention span because, let’s face it, I got through Dickens just fine several year ago and I have a feeling that wouldn’t be so easy for me these days – it’s always worth the time that I put into it and I always learn how to think a little bit more clearly from each of his pieces. This issue is themed All Things Chesterton, and in these pages you’ll find short stories, articles, and poetry inspired by the great British author, as well as biographies and reviews discussing the man himself and his works. Additionally included is another installment of our Reviewing Rivershore column, and an interview with Sonya Writes, whom we are honored to feature in this issue. Thanks so much for stopping by, and please enjoy!

Yours Ever,

Courtney Seybold Managing Editor
