This special issue is dedicated to the treatment of loss, love, and the supernatural. RELIGIONS welcomes short contributions (+/- 1,000 - 3,500 words) that comment on (and extend into contributors’ interests and other work) the linked short stories in my collection, Thieves Never Steal in the Rain (Amazon.com). The publisher also invites contributors to submit longer essays on the prose, poetry, and plays of other authors (including contributors’ own work) and dramatists. The field, however, is not limited to literature nor confined to the West or any particular century. Colleagues in the fields of film studies, psychology, sociology, history, ethnic and women’s studies, religion, philosophy, and humor are encouraged to submit papers on a an individual’s or a society’s treatment of loss.
