About PHIction - A Word From the Editor

In this we will be looking for works that excel in using literary art to show readers the philosophical questions and ideas we face in the act of living and thinking.  Works should aim to evoke thought, challenge the reader, and leave the reader in a state of inquiry.  Philosophy provides in readers a greater sense of the big questions we all think about.  Thanks for your submissions and for your efforts.
