And Lyndon Perry says: Here it is May and I forgot to tell you about April's features:
http://www.resaliens.com/category/volume-4-issue-4/ Check it out this weekend before you go on to May's issue. You'll find 4 short stories and an artist interview. I think you'll like the medieval style artwork of Richard H. Fay, and the entertaining stories of Stoney M. Setzer, Kat Heckenbach, Walt Staples, and George Page. They represent quite a variety of fiction, in fact, from angel visitation to spiritual thriller, theological flash fiction to SF military with a twist of humor. I'll let you figure out which one is which. As always, thanks for reading! Your fellow alien, Lyn Perry
