The snow is melting and the virus is in retreat thanks to the life-saving vaccine. What better time to pick up a copy of rez and enjoy some of the most talented writers on the grid. Art Blue starts us off with Plan 9: We Were Here, which looks into recent movements by Bell Labs, with a nod to arguably the worse film ever made, Plan 9 from Outer Space. Zymony Guyot goes where few do, speaking his truth clearly, persuasively and passionately. He’s a treasure. Larkbird Parx continues her series on iconic songwriters/singers on the grid, this month featuring Wolfie Starfire, known to so many as a captivating and enchanting singer and entertainer. Jami Mills is reprising her short story Wishbone One, with another installment about the selection process to undertake one of the most dangerous missions ever – to land a human on Mars. Klannex Northmead is at the top of her game with a lovely poem, Callipyge (or Aprhodite with the Beautiful Buttocks). Postcard from Perfect is a stunning poem by Merope Madrigal, exploring that beautiful world of perfection. Our talented and always thought-provoking poet, RoseDrop Rust, closes out the issue with Thoughts Like Children, questioning the spontaneity of youth. There’s no time to lose - - let’s get started with some soul rejuvenating reading!
