Issue 14 features works that explore the parallels and contrasts of Bitterness and Sweetness, embodied in joy and pain, beauty and conflict, comfort and hardship. We encounter lovers on a journey from pain into hope in Trevor Scott Barton’s short story Revolution, the poetry of Shelby Traynor in which we experience the uncomfortable squirm of projected judgment and, in our Feature piece, the realisation that toast can trump love. We introduce the first in a series of connected short stories by author Nicole Bostrom, in which a young woman must make a difficult personal and social choice, and we have our first album review by editor Ana’Rchy. Find the balance in life’s Bitterness and Sweetness.
