Summer 2018: Citron Six

Letter from the Editor

 

Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.
– Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine

 

Last night I was reviewing the summer issue, and I was thinking about how out-of-sync I feel with the season this year. The heatwave moving through summer has altered the way many of us have spent summers in the past.

Then I stumbled across Ray Bradbury’s words from Dandelion Wine, “their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.” This is a great meditation for falling back into the season. There is something extraordinary about how a few sentences can propel us into a realm of possibility that was previously unimagined. Summer reading is a solace and rehearsal for the other seasons.

I hope you take the time to read the letters from the editors that introduce the selections in each genre. This issue is the last for Fiction Editor, Jennifer Ettleson Besmehn. We were so lucky to have her on our team, and we wish her great success in her future endeavors.

On behalf of the editors at The Citron Review, we hope you enjoy this issue as much as we do.


Warmly,
Angela M. Brommel
Editor-in-Chief
The Citron Review
