Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Janel has degrees in English and Creative Writing. She was managing editor of a literary journal for more than a year. Her prose fiction has been published widely.
The Cavern of Serpents begins in this issue and will conclude with the fifth chapter. It will give readers a lot to think and talk about. Phoebe and Medusa are borrowed from ancient Greek and Roman mythology but are updated to tell a modern feminist story in a cultural setting that is completely different from that of the original characters.
However, the readers are forewarned: the prologue sets out the rules in advance. The result is a powerful account of women’s feelings about being oppressed not so much for what they do as for what they are.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Janel. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
