Letter from the Editors
When we sleep our brain does some audio-visual gymnastics to help us understand ourselves. But more often than not, our dreams don’t just stop when we wake up.
We gave you a bottle of metaphorical sleepytime tea and asked you to report back. In return you gave us dreams by the pillowful. Thank you for crushing the sand from the corners of your eyes and using that to ink your nightmares for us. Reading all of your submissions kept us awake at night, in the best of ways.
In this issue you’ll find desires and dreams in all shapes and sizes. We appreciate you continuing this journey through our collective minds with us.
After you finish reading this issue we would ask you to turn your attention away from the ever-changing dreamscapes that haunt us and to begin to think of another changing time in history: that of the western–a time of outlaws and sheriffs, of humans versus nature, of new technologies and strange lands.
