March/April 2015

Hello, Cicada readers! Our March/April issue's all about tricksters and thieves, glamour and illusion, and what those who live by their wits learn about the slipperiness of the authentic in a world of performances. 

Fiction by Douglas W. Milliken, dystopian fic by Debbie Urbanski, a fairy tale by Anca L. Szilágyi, and poetry by Karen Rigby and E. Kristin Anderson. Comics by Jesse Tise, Jensine Eckwall, and Gina Wynbrandt. Plus Autumn Whitefield-Madrano talks about the dark art of glamour.
