Lightning Cake, Second Edition
The second edition of Lightning Cake will feature work by Alena McNamara, Gwendolyn Edward, Rebecca Emanuelsen, Jamie Lackey, KL Pereira, Emily Beyda, C.E. Hyun, Trevor Shikaze, Julia August, and Kristian Ashley Macaron.
Each piece is illustrated by guest artist Jen Muir.
These ten stories comprise The Moon Cake.
Moon cakes are a treat traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival, a time that celebrates lunar worship and moon-watching. Moon cakes are delicacies—small, dense, flavorful. Each story in this second edition is an entire little cake—speculative and boundless, silvery and otherworldly.
This year, the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on September 8. Over the course of the next ten weeks, bite into a fresh moon cake every Wednesday. Polish off the crumbs with tea.
Here’s a future thing I’m looking forward to! Lightning Cake is a lovely ‘zine and I wanted to be part of it as soon as I found it, because I love flash, tumblr and cake.
