Welcome: A Word from the Editors

Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot. –Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol 3: Dream Country

Hello and welcome to the inaugural issue of Beyond. We are excited about what we have to offer. Conjecture 2014/ConChord 26 had a full weekend of science fiction and fantasy fun in various media such as print, visual art, and music, and Breeann Kirby was there (sadly not in cosplay though she has photos of those who were). Also in this issue, Adam Bicksler explores how Snow White has been portrayed in recent literature; Jessica Wright interviews editor and aspiring author Jacquelyn Phillips; Ameerah Holliday reviews the young adult, fantasy novel Redeemed; and much more.
