Fantasy Horror magic sacrifice nuclear war shopping mall

Don't you think that if magic truly existed that there would be more important uses for it than love spells or turning princes into frogs? In the our world where the threats are so huge most people can't even recognize them wouldn't the real wizards and magicians, the good ones, be working to save us all? Those are the questions a unremarkable mall cop faces when he visits a trailer at the edge of the mall's parking lot.

#blacklivesmatter Ahmaud Arbery Ibram X. Kendi George Floyd

Ibram X. Kendi has jogged around his neighborhood. He’s run errands in public; he’s peered into empty buildings. The only difference between him and Ahmaud Arbery is that he lived, and Arbery died.

In lieu of a featured story on Curious Fictions this week, we’re recommending a piece in The Atlantic by Ibram X. Kendi, director of The Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University and author of “How to Be an Antiracist.”
