The biggest thing I learned while working on this issue is that children are far more terrifying than adults. (There may be exceptions to this rule, like Stephen King, but I stand by my statement)
I was deliciously creeped out by several of these stories, and it was awesome to get to read them. To all the youth who submitted for this issue, thank you very much. And yes, everything, except for our regular Science for Fiction and Tabitha Reeves: SPACE GIRL! features were created entirely by people who have not yet completed their eighteenth year.
I think the selection we have here, while smaller than our typical issue, shows what rising talent we have to look forward to in the next generation. Keep on writing and drawing!
