February is made for expensive chocolates, fancy dates, and wine-soaked kisses. It’s the big red hearts of Valentine’s Day and snuggles beneath a cozy blanket. Our Sadie Hawkin’s Spark issue brings you women who know what they want and go after it. From feature author Pepper Basham’s “adorkable” piece about a librarian and her famous writer crush to stories of second chances and first dates, we’ve got a lazy evening’s worth of sweet and sassy.
Space. There’s a reason they call it the final frontier. So many planets and systems that are as yet unexplored—the possibilities are endless. That’s why we’re kicking off 2018 with our Deep Space Design issue. This issue explores uncharted territory, with new worlds, new creatures, and new adventures, including a hunt for a terrifying alien beast by award-winning author Mary Weber, and a bike race on an unknown planet.
So hop on board your favorite spaceship and set sail for the stars in a showcase of sci-fi stars!
What does Christmas look like to you? In my head, it’s carols, gingerbread houses, snowmen, and cider simmering on the stove. In reality? The holidays are magical and full of wonder . . . until they go terribly wrong. In this issue, we’re thrilled to bring you ten Christmases that don’t go according to plan—because real life is so much messier than a Hallmark card, and sometimes we find the true spirit of Christmas in the midst of a kitchen fiasco, a tattered tree, or the relatives who can’t mind their own business.
