Main Fiction: “No Regrets on Fourth Street” by Lauren C. Teffaeu
Originally published in Perihelion
Lauren C. Teffeau was born and raised on the East Coast, educated in the South, employed in the Midwest, and now lives and dreams in the Southwest USA. When she was younger, she poked around in the back of wardrobes, tried to walk through mirrors, and always kept an eye out for secret passages, fairy rings, and messages from aliens. Now, she writes to cope with her ordinary existence. Her short fiction can be found a variety of professional and semi-pro speculative fiction magazines and anthologies. If you enjoyed this story, be sure to check out her cyberpunk novel Implanted which was shortlisted for the 2019 Compton Crook award for best first SF/F/H novel.
