Congratulations to Alpha graduate John Wheeler (2008 & 2009), whose short story “Rewind” appears in this month’s issue of Cicada:
Balancing on the narrow rock ledge, I stare down into the water. The rock is ice-cold against my bare feet, and the wind is doing its best to shove me off. The base of the waterfall is about fifty feet down, and the spray turns the air into a white cloud. Maybe there are rocks down there, or maybe not. I’m about to find out.
