“Beginnings” by Lynda Bullock on Flickr

For the week of Halloween, a time when minds turn to the imagination, our contributors take us to other worlds.

The Society” by Marla Johnson is a sequel to an earlier piece, also published by Wild Violet, about a young werewolf seeking vengeance.

In “Robotomy” by Joe Andriano, two androids fall in love and kick off a robot revolution.

The Briar Speaks” by Gabriella M. Belfiglio provides a different perspective on a well-known fairy tale.

In “Obsession” by Megan Sierra Smith, two girls bond in a post-apocalyptic world.


Alyce Wilson is the editor of Wild Violet and in her copious spare time writes humor, non-fiction, fiction and poetry and infrequently keeps an online journal. 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 ; her book of essays and columns, The Art of Life; her humorous nonfiction ebook, Dedicated Idiocy: How Monty Python Fandom Changed My Life, and her newest poetry collection, Owning the Ghosts, can all be ordered from her Web site, AlyceWilson.com. In late 2019, she published a volume of poetry by her third great-grandfather, Reading's Physician Poet: Poems by Dr. James Meredith Mathews, which also contains genealogical information about the Mathews family. She lives with her husband and son in the Philadelphia area and takes far too many photos of her handsome, creative son, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda.
