What’s in Issue 598

Serial New contributor Dave Ervin puts Travis Burbage into a jam. Travis is convinced he’s just an ordinary guy, but a murderer begs to differ: The Thirteenth Traveler, chapter I; chapter II.
The San-Lo Gate is the only passage into an impregnable realm. But even such a narrow gate needs more than one gatekeeper: Gary Clifton, The Keeper of the San Lo Gate.

New contributor Timothy Kay brings Anton to a dentist’s office, where Basma will perform a root canal. She’s Anton’s ex-girlfriend: Virtually Painless Dentistry.

New contributor Adam Randolph depicts an old professor who seems to be shut out of his own world. But why? And is it his world? Teddy Bow.
Remember this handy signal: three of anything spaced equidistantly in a row. You may need it when you’re out digging for wealth on a desert island: Charles C. Cole, Prospecting on Island X.
Poetry Anna Ruiz, Vitruvian Man
Zane Blom, Far From Home
