We are so excited to be back with our second issue! The editing team and I have been fascinated by myths and imaginary creatures (...are they so imaginary?) since childhood. I remember my sister and I watching reruns of a PBS claymation series that animated Greek and Roman stories, and discovering how our favorite books were inspired by the characters and themes we saw in the show. 

The words "fiction" and "myth" are so often used to describe something that is untrue or doesn't really affect our lives and personhood. We at Honeyguide disagree -- fiction holds and reflects the truth of our daily lives. Myths reveal who we are and who we can become. 

Enjoy the next array of Honeyguide pieces -- speculative fiction where ordinary animals take on human abilities, meetings with fantastical beings, and people encountering the wonder of the natural world.
