In honor of our fifteenth year, we asked Emeritus Editor Renata Hill for some of her thoughts.
Wow, 15 years! Very cool! I'd love to participate. A couple of stories STILL stick in my head...
My fave story was the one about the baby gargoyle and his guardian (sorry, I've long forgotten the title). The man went out in the countryside and tried to get the gargoyle to stay and live out there, but it flew home after him. I enjoyed it so much bc the characters were complex and vivid, I could see the setting (his house, this place in the country, etc) and the protagonist's development followed an interesting arc as he struggled to figure out what to do with this extraordinary creature who had entered his life.
The second most memorable story for me was an urban sci-fi adventure
(don't remember this title either) about a young man who made money
selling body parts on the black market. He had a pair of eyes that were
very valuable. Gangsters were involved. The author did an excellent job
of plunging the reader into this gritty, dark reality. I sympathized with
the protagonist's determination to succeed and found the story very
Thanks, Renata! Very interesting! :)
