“Sin Eater” by Nick Farrant was by far my favorite piece in this issue – the first line caught my attention and the story continued to intrigue through the last. The writing is tight, multi-layered and filled with turns of a phrase that have stayed stuck in my mind days after reading the story. I suggest readers leave the lights on, turn the 700 Club off and enjoy the ride. I find that I want to know what happens next – even though the tale does indeed have a definite conclusion, there is room for doubt about what the future holds for at least one character. I look forward to reading more from this author!

I too am moved to comment on the provocative "Sin Eater". Having dabbled into some similar works (Gaiman et al), I was struck by the unprecedented direction that this particular work takes the genre. I admire F(r)iction's efforts in soliciting such original material.

I completely agree. There were so many amazing works in this journal, from cool genre works like "Sin Eaters" to really moving traditional literary fiction. I really enjoyed the story about the tiger wrangler. What a strangely moving little piece!
