October rez Posted

read the October issue of rez in Issuu:

we’re surrounded with making this month’s issue one of our best.  We start things off with The G.B.T.H. Project, an article by Jami Mills which explores one of the most exciting new art galleries on the grid, the G.T.B.H. Project, owned and operated by Marina Munter and Megan Prumier.  Every month or so they re-imagine the gallery to accommodate the works of some of the finest virtual artists around.  Jami was fortunate enough to interview Marina, who shared her thoughts about art and the virtual environment.  Cat Boccaccio has written another gem, this time called Test Drive, which re-introduces to our readers one of Cat’s favorite characters, Leep, who’s back with a tale of Chinese warriors and melted candles.  This issue also includes some wonderful poetry, including Dearstluv Writer’s uniquely romantic piece, Avatar, in which she brings the passion and breathlessness of a new love to the forefront.  Barbie Starr caught up with Suzen JueL, who graciously agreed to sit for any interview with her. Barbie finds out more about Suzen’s illustrious musical career, but also learns about Suzen as fine artist. We include some of Suzen’s wonderful paintings along with Barbie’s interview.  Shyla the Super Gecko returns to our pages with a nostalgic poem, The Road Which Never Ends, about roads that were taken, and how fondly we recall the memories of those experiences.  Art Blue contributes I Hide You, which is a deep dive into computers, AI and Tomorrowland.  It’s a fascinating read and Art’s perspective on the future will dazzle and fascinate those wondering where our technology is headed in the years to come. Zymony Guyot delivers another up/down, all around mash up of words and spaces in Blank.  And last, but not least, RoseDrop Rust adds Bed Blanket, which finds connections in the most unexpected places, like a rumpled blanket. Enjoy this month’s issue!

September rez Posted

read the September issue of rez in Issuu:
It’s Labor Day in the States and for the lucky ones among us, we’re engaged in various labors of love.  The September issue of rez Magazine is chock full of such labors - - writers who love to write.  It’s very evident from even a cursory glance.  Our intrepid reporter, Barbie Starr, covered this year’s LoveFest, an annual celebration of the works of H.P. Lovecraft.  She claims she was lucky to get in, it was so crowded, but we’re the lucky ones after reading her article, For the Love of Lovecraft.  Art Blue never ceases to astound us, this time with his treatise on the extinction of our species.  Could never happen?  Ask the owl.  The multi-talented Consuela Hypatia Caldwell treats us this month to one of her short stories, Drew, about love, rebellion and lifestyle choices.  Our regular contributor of the shortest of short fiction, Cat Boccaccio, hits a home run with Joy and Dismay, a peek into the life of two sisters, each trying to entice the same man, but with very different approaches.  Jullianna Juliesse contributes A Gothic Poem, finding a note hidden away for years, containing the DNA of a long lost, but not forgotten, love interest.  Merope Madrigal captures the awe of one of Nature’s most stunning phenomena, the glacier, in her exquisite poem The March of Giants.  The wonderful piece by Persephone Phoenix rounds out this month’s superb issue with her poem, Avatar Dysphoria - - a stunning piece of writing.  So enjoy your labors and I hope you find time to enjoy the September issue of rez Magazine.
