Greetings from the Commonwealth of Kentucky!

Editorial Update, 5-2-2022:

Suspension of Acceptance of Manuscripts for Publication

At this time we.cannot guarantee prospective authors a spot in an upcoming issue within a reasonable length of time.
In order to be fair to authors whose work has already been accepted for publication, as well as those wanting their work to appear in future issues, we are suspending acceptance of manuscripts for publication until further notice.
Watch the Submissions and In My Opinion  web pages for submission policy updates.
Thank you for thinking of 4 Star Stories, and we look forward to again being able to accept submissions.

Hi, Readers -

Welcome to 4 Star Stories Issue 25!

Here we are in Autumn '22. It seems like the year has flown by. Autumn is a favorite time of the year for us in Kentucky. The leaves have changed and there is a nip in the air.
What does that mean for 4 Star Stories, you ask? Stay tuned for more, exciting stories for you, our readers. Start by checking out the links to our five stories below.
You can check out our COVID-related adventures and technical topics in the Webmaster's Rant, located at Contact Us/Webmaster.

Once again, five fine authors have stepped forward with exciting and innovative stories for your reading pleasure.

Here are the links to the stories:

Dark Veil
The Gates of Petheris
Late-Nite Customer
Red, Blue, Green and Yellow
Tales from Alien AA

You'll notice that the Guest Artist page this issue is turned over to the C. Dean Andersson Memorial. If you recognize the name, you will acknowledge his stature as a Horror fiction writer. If not, this may be a chance to discover an author of rare talent. Dean's passing was a heavy blow to his friends, and we immediately began thinking how we could honor his name. We came up with this memorial. In addition to lists of his novels and short stories and covers from his books, we are featuring reminisences from his friends.

As always, we wish you good health, both physical and mental, in these trying times. Practice COVID-safe behavior, and we look forward to seeing you healthy for Issue 26.
