a letter from the editors

Dear Readers, 

It's fall! The weather is cold, the baked goods are delicious, and the atmosphere is perfect for reading! Grab that hot chocolate and apple pie and hunker down, cause this issue is a good one.  

As always, tremendous thanks to all of our contributors, all those who take the time to read our happy little magazine, and all the people who support us while we make this magic happen. Hope you enjoy!
