Letter From The Editor
You find us again and we, the humble curators, are so very thrilled to be found. We humans are fickle creatures after all; we love, we lose ourselves, and we betray. Life, that thing happening to you, right now, this very moment, is filled to the brim with people busy kissing and laughing and loving and stabbing each other in the back. Love and Betrayal knows all professions: janitors, politicians, oh and writers, writers especially. We writers create characters that seem more real than ourselves. We so cleverly weave webs with our keyboards and pens and typewriters. We adore this dance of spinning plates but the reader demands more, thrills, tragedy, the climax as it were. As the reader demands so do we provide. As Faulkner (allegedly) said, “Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, kill your darlings,” we, the author, must let those spinning plates crash explosively to the ground. In the spirit of those very particular betrayals, here is a selection of formerly spinning plates, carefully smashed for your perusal and enjoyment. The team at littledeath hopes you return to view more.
This issue’s artist feature is Elle Danbury. Elle has had her photography published in Barren Magazine and Cauldron Anthology. After leaving city life many years ago, she moved into her own little forest in northern British Columbia Canada, to find out who she was and what her passions were. Always a lover of nature, she seems to have found a niche for herself there with her photography and writing. She can be found on Twitter @Elleoftheforest.
