Letter from the Editor

Dear Issue 05 readers,

 

We bring new stars to you this autumn—welcome, treasured readers, to Interstellar’s Issue 05.

 

Be it Jack Jung’s hauntingly luminous “White Fountain” or Gabriel Rubi’s scintillating and cutting “Montgomery Sonnet,” every work in Issue 05 promises to light up constellations and realizations alike with its wondrous talent. Trust them to lead you through these lengthening nights.

 

Forever and always, we thank everyone who’s made this issue possible. A hundred thank you’s to our hardworking editors, to our most beloved and wondrous contributors, and the community who’s supported us along the way. 

 

And to you, dear reader, for looking to the sky. Please enjoy Issue 05.

 

Warmest, always,

Sunny Vuong
