Introducing Judith Field...

One of the secret pleasures of editing a short-story magazine is that you get to meet some very talented writers, long before they become well-known names. Sometimes you watch them develop slowly, as they learn the craft and develop their skills, while other times they just sort of erupt, and produce a string of great stories right from the start.

Judith Field is that second kind of writer. I knew I was seeing something special the first time I read "The Prototype," but then, when she followed up with "The Night the Cat Crept In," "Leaky Magic," "Diva," and "Full Fathom Five," I realized she was only getting started.

It's the nature of the short-story form that writers eventually outgrow it. Sooner or later, some major publisher is going to sign her to a nice big contract for a big fat novel, or some television producer is going to discover her Cleopatra Court stories and make her rich and famous, and then we'll be left saying, "Ah yes, Judith Field. I knew her when..."

But right now, today, it's my pleasure and privilege to present these sixteen stories—fourteen never-before published, and two reprints of stories you may have missed the first time around—that show the range of Judith's story-telling talents. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, sometimes romantic, sometimes disturbing—sometimes all four in the same story!—but always a good, solid, entertaining story, well-told.

Enjoy!
—Bruce Bethke, Editor
