Fantastic Stories of the Imagination #229 with 2 new stories and 3 reprinted ones. It is available online and in an epub edition.
The first new story is "Message from Beyond" by Josť Pablo Iraiarte. -+- Ray LaSalle's Aunt Liz has had a stroke and has not been able to make money from being a medium. Ray has hooked in a phony MRI hookup to fool a woman who says she's a reporter. Things do not go as planned. Amusing.
The second new story is "The Closed Window" by Christina Sng. -+- A woman moves into an apartment that has a window that opens on a brick wall. She keeps it closed but her daughter opens it to let Kitty out. Things begin to get strange and this has a real sting at the end. Perfectly done!
There are also three reprinted stories: "A Soaring Pillar of Brightness" by Nancy Fulda, "The Temple's Posthole" by M.K. Hutchins, and "The Carnival Was Eaten, All Except the Clown" by Caroline M. Yoachim, I do not review reprinted stories but I hope you enjoy them.
The stories in Fantastic Stories of the Imagination are always available, you can check them out at their website (see link at the top of this review).
