May rez posted

Read the May 2014 issue of rez in Issuu:

This month's cover story by Jami Mills features one of the boldest spectacles Second Life has ever seen: The Basilique Performing Arts Company's ambitious production of Milton's Paradise Lost.  You'll have never seen anything quite like it, with its lavish sets and epic themes. Long-time contributor, Sedona Mills, takes a turn at fiction this month with The Beginning of Life. Her first chapter is called The Gift, and we look forward to many more.  SL singer/songwriter, Loreen Aldrin, adds some sumptuous photos in support of Sedona's taut writing. The writing team of Stihly Augenblick and Hitomi Tamatzui lead us into more adventures in their noir thriller, The Key to Golden Hills.  This month's chapter, The Key, keeps us on the edge of our seats.  Hitomi's moody black and white photographs are the perfect complement to their suspense-laden story.  The uber-talented Art Blue brings his cyber-thriller, The Artefact, to a close with this month's episode, I Am Substance. I Am Art.  We are especially pleased to have received permission from Art Blue's early mentor, Sergius Both (aka Herbert W. Franke), to reprint The Blue Elephant, a ground-breaking piece which Both originally published in German.  Gudrun Gausman recalls the world of Gor in her piece The Paradox of the Collar.  And finally, Crap Mariner brings us another work of microfiction entitled Otters, about the cutest critters on the planet.
