Announcing the TOC for 34 ORCHARD’s Spring 2022 Issue 5!

34 Orchard Spring 2022 Issue 5 CoverIn wall-bound creatures, leucistic birds, and murderous gardens and forests; in natural disasters and terrifying hauntings; in everywhere from modern-day skyscrapers to the Old West, the upcoming issue of 34 Orchard’s twenty-five artists focus on the things we refuse to see, and what that might mean.

I’m excited to announce 34 Orchard‘s Table of Contents for the Spring 2022, which will be released on April 25—and thanks to several generous donations, this issue is even larger than our last one! We’ve even arranged for an exclusive preview of an upcoming speculative memoir, soon to be available from Thera Books. You won’t want to miss this issue!
