July’s Table of Contents

editorial by Camille Gooderham Campbell

From the Editors

The school year has ended, and summer is here. Crazy temperatures are being reported in some areas — we hope those of you in current hot spots are able to keep safe and relatively cool.

If you’re looking for some entertaining beach reading, check out Lifting Up Veronica by K.C. Ball; one of our readers has called it “a story I will remember forever”.

Just want more short stories? Have a look at our Top Stories page and read some interviews with authors of our most popular stories.

Best of all, you can find like-minded (or different-minded) readers to talk to in our community — come find us in your favourite social media places, and join the conversation.

For Readers

For Canada Day (today, July 1st), we hope you enjoy “Oh, Canada!” by Torin Michael Johnson. We regret that we did not receive any Independence Day stories (not one, not even a bad one!), so instead we present “Reuben and the Roundabout” by Carroll Dale Short on July 4th in honour of Rube Goldberg’s 130th birthday.

For Writers

Although no one even wants to think about Labour Day or back to school yet, we’ll be needing those stories from you in August, so now is a good time to get your ideas on.
