An exciting game is afoot, thanks to acquiring editor Michael Bracken! Yes—we are delighted to present an original Sherlock Holmes story by A.L. Sirois this issue. It’s one that only Sirois could write, as Holmes meets no less a person than Bram Stoker! Then the mysteries keep coming with “The Echoes,” by Charles John Harper [courtesy of acquiring editor Barb Goffman], plus a mystery novel by Elisabeth Sanxay Holding. And, of course, we have a solve-it-yourself mystery by Hal Charles.

On the fantastic side of things, editor Cynthia Ward has found a steampunk triumph in “Pimp My Airship,” by Maurice Broaddus. plus we have science fiction tales by Lester del Rey and George O. Smith, as well as fantasies by Weird Tales alums Manly Wade Wellman, Clifford Ball, and Dorothy Quick.
