Notes

  • Editor's Introduction:...One thing I know for certain is that I personally have been gripped by the writings of Mark Panozzo, Anna Kay, Chloe Hooper, and Jay Kranz, by their shared themes of death, or rather, impending doom - I mean fate - and the decision of how to conduct oneself in the face of that. I have personally been gripped by their characters' decision for struggle, for refusal, for the struggle to stand proudly beautiful in the face of impending fate. This is a common feature of all the works here....(ix-xxxvi).
