The theme was falling and the guest editor was Christopher Allen. The choices were selected blind, but Christopher used to edit Metazen, and they published me no less than five times. This is a telling fact for Mr. Allen, as it shows an editor knows what he likes, is consistent and is not just picking names he knows. Seeing the names of some of the other contributors it tells me that Mr. Allen and Michelle Elvy even when reading blind submissions, still managed to pick a well versed group. Well done!
As for the story itself, what I was getting at in You Buy Too Much Kale was that good people often will leave good people that have problems. I hear about it all the time. I've also found that it's never too late, there is hope. Always remember that every person's journey is different and if you are willing, your life can be changed forever.
