Happy New Year on rainbow oil background

As the new year charges off to a bitterly cold start (at least in much of the Northern Hemisphere), this week’s contributors wrap up the holidays and look forward to 2014.

John L. Moore’s short story, “The Saga of Salk Atnas,” is a wry postlude to the Christmas holiday.

In Margaret Karmazin’s short story, “Hallucinations,” an ob/gyn discovers a surprising connection between her life and the future of Earth.

Ansel Oommen’s photograph, “Eclosion,” evokes hints of renewal amidst this pale world.




Alyce Wilson is the editor of Wild Violet and in her copious spare time writes humor, non-fiction, fiction and poetry, keeps an online journal, and is working on a book, Belated Mommy: How to Cope With Being an Older Mom. Her first chapbook, Picturebook of the Martyrs; her e-book/pamphlet, Stay Out of the Bin! An Editor's Tips on Getting Published in Lit Mags (which she plans to update this year); her book of essays and columns, The Art of Life; and her humorous nonfiction ebook, Dedicated Idiocy: How Monty Python Fandom Changed My Life, can all be ordered from her Web site, AlyceWilson.com. She lives with her husband and son in the Philadelphia area and takes far too many photos of her handsome, creative third grader, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda.
