Kaleidotrope #12 is here with a splendid novella and a long story poem.
The single piece of prose fiction in this issue is the novella "Libations" by A.S. Moser. This was a rich fantasy that told the story of the priestess, Asha, and her quest to save Ili, the man she loves. Ili is on trial in Asha's land and to prove his innocence, Asha must travel to his land and bring back the merchant who had hired him. Asha faces many perils, including betrayal by those she trusts and she gives up a lot to bring the merchant to Ili’s trial. All in all, this was a well-told tale and worth taking up most of this issue. We also have a story poem, “Dream Lines” by Jessey Nickells, but I am not really qualified to judge it. I am sure you all enjoy it.
Kaleidotrope i It also has the hilarious Horoscopes section, which are great fun to read. I'll say it again, subscribe!
