  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Issue 13, 2017

Issue 13 of True Story features Erica Berry's "Beasts among Us." On a trip to rural Wisconsin, the epicenter of werewolf sightings in the US, Erica Berry searches for the elusive Beast of Bray Road and the local author whose stories have helped keep the legend alive. Do werewolves and other supernatural creatures exist, or do they just haunt our imaginations?

Autumn-winter is a tender fusion of dark and light. Interviewee Anne Serling acts as guide to the gray dimensions of human nature and emotion through the pages of As I Knew Him: My Dad, Rod Serling. We are introduced to the man who surpassed the myth and imparted iconic, timeless television and films, such as The Twilight Zone and Requiem for a Heavyweight. Merging past and present, we examine society and ourselves. Poetry contemplates loss and seasonal surrender. Fiction shows starkly contrasting responses to adversity and salvation in kindnesses. Non-fiction tells of travel, peace, and discovery. Writers' Challenge will benefit hurricane relief efforts (deadline 11/20).
