Fiction: “Memorial Park”
By Stewart C Baker
It takes a special kind of self-loathing to document a whole life's worth of mistakes, to cross-reference half-heard wishes with forgotten birthdays and work commitments with canceled vacations.

Artwork: “Red Alert”
By Sebastian Hue
Sebastien Hue, aka Shue13, is a french digital artist who lives in Paris’ suburbs. Self-taught, he started around 7 years ago when inspired by the likes of Dylan Cole. Sebastien decided to teach himself the ins and outs of digital painting, initially starting out with Photoshop. “I used to make logos for music bands, but I eventually progressed deeper into CG graphics, 3D programs and matte painting.” Sebastien certainly had a hidden talent for imagining spectacular landscapes, a far cry from band logos. He channels his love for science fiction and the diversity of the visual arts straight into his work, seeking to add scale, depth and drama into his intricately detailed designs. After 15 years of experience in international logistics and business, Sebastien decided to make a U-turn in is career. After a hard transition of two years, he eventually became professional concept artist in 2013, founding is own freelance studio Shue-Digital and establishing many international clients in publishing, gaming, and the film industry.
