We need to tell stories, whether these are contemporary or through the tools spec fic gives us. We need self-expression. We need heroes. As Bernard Hayman writes, "fictional worlds have the potential to act as irreplaceable portals through which we can grapple with not only our tumultuous past and difficult present, but also the promise of a more hopeful future."
In other news this week - the first volume of Brimstone Journals will be released at Mischief Corner Books on 12/24. That's a holiday present for you guys and will contain a little holiday ficlet that didn't appear on the MCB website in the weekly Brimstone Journals.
