Often, the work in our issues is just as concerned with animals and the natural world as with humanity and civilization—not by choice, but by necessity: it reflects our contributors’ interests. But, in this issue, people and civilization (cities! cars! castles!) are the main subjects. Patrick Lusa’s poem “Numbers” captures the hustle and bustle of everyday life; Anna Shepherd’s story “Twenty Questions, Twenty Answers” explores the complicated-but-close relationship between two sisters; and Mia Fang’s digital portrait “Lady in the Willows by the River” (on the cover) places a person squarely in the center of our usual cover
landscape.

We hope you enjoy reading and looking at the many other works that appear in this issue, and that you leave feeling inspired to send us some people- and car-filled stories, poetry, and artwork.
