ESC! Magazine
Volume 8, Number 2
Release Date October 26, 2004

ESC! presents an expanded line up of fiction and poetry this issue. Featuring the short story "Baaaaaab" by Diane Payne and "VEX: Seasonal Sleep" by Paul Tucker, this issue is also proud to welcome back reader favorites Joyce Bradshaw and Bob Potocki. Rounding out our new fiction this issue are Deborah Mercier and Charles Ries, both of whom I hope we'll see more of in the future.

Our poetry section brings you another piece by David Howerton as well as long time contributor Guy Qualls and two poems by ESC! newcomer Irene Sedeora.

ESC! introduces a new Book Review section this issue. If you have a book you'd like reviewed or have reviewed books in the past, please let us know. The current selection is "Marking Time" by Barbara Jordan Bache-Wiig, reviewed by Charles Ries.

This month's cover, "Cat and Mouse" was illustrated by Alex Rodriguez, a Chicago-based artist.
