From the Editor's Desk
Twilight Times ezine was on hiatus from January 2010 to June 2012, but we are re-launching with the July 2012 issue. Going forward, we will be publishing on a regular quarterly schedule -- Winter (January 2013), Spring (April 2013), Summer (July 2013) and a special Halloween issue (October 2012). We need poetry and stories for the Halloween issue as well as the Winter issue. We will be open to submissions from July 15 to August 5, 2012.
Many thanks to the talented contributors who are sending us the finest in speculative fiction, poetry and fantasy artwork. This is the thirty-third issue of Twilight Times ezine - online since July 1998.

Our featured authors for the Summer 2012 issue of Twilight Times:
Cheryl Gray - "There are very few admittedly guilty people on Death Row and those who
do admit their guilt, generally have good reasons for their actions. They feel morally justified, whether it be directions from God, their dog or for the betterment of mankindů"
Christine Amsden - "No matter what you do, nor how hard you try, the signs will come."
Jeffery Scott Sims - Professor Anton Vorchek has devoted his life to the investigation of bizarre mysteries.
Jim Hartley - "I've been in jail several times, and I don't relish the thought of going back. I don't like jail, not at all."
D Jason Cooper - Vampires attempt to co-exist with humans in the twenty-third century.
Paula Cappa - Five generations of Lantz women had lived in the rambling structure with a tin roof that even the gray crows refused to land on.
Richard Brookes - "Just a typical spring afternoon, and the kids are appreciating the weather and the joy of being young."
Buck Moon - Everything we know could be false, but one thing is still true: "Cogito ergo sum."
Anne K. Edwards - "I am a writer--or rather, I used to be. I wrote until my first muse, who shall remain nameless just in case she has found other employment, which I doubt."
Ed Cooke - "When I heard how William Faulkner wrote his first novel, I went straight out and got myself a night watchman gig."
