Hats Off! to NCWN Trustee Michele Tracy Berger whose poem "The Shells of Pink Bodies" appears in Oracle: Fine Arts Review. Also, her short story "The Curl of Emma Jean" appears in the anthology UnCommon Origins: A Collection of Gods, Monsters, Nature and Science (Fighting Monkey Press). UnCommon Origins presents twenty-two depictions of moments on the precipice, beginnings both beautiful and tragic. Fantastical stories of Creation, Feral Children, Gods and Goddesses (both holy and horrific), and possibilities you never dared imagine come to life. Including stories from some of the most talented Speculative Fiction and Magical Realism authors around, UnCommon Origins revisits the oldest questions in the universe: Where did we come from? and What comes next?
