The Starvation Response By Patrick Christie

My father always took a nap after lunch. He claimed it wasn’t a matter of choice. He simply couldn’t keep his eyes open. I’m convinced that the main reason he set up his own company was to indulge this habit. It was a small publishing house that printed etiquette guides. Miscellanea protocol of a world

In the Dream House By Carmen Maria Machado

Places are never just places in a piece of writing…The Dream House was never just the Dream House. Picture a house. What do you see? The outside? The front door? A picket fence framing its border? Do you see the kitchen table or the wallpaper in the livingroom? The pigeons nesting in the roof? Can

Letting Go By E.H. Jacobs

Tara wasn’t a bad girl. Doin’ bad things don’t make you bad.

Ritual by Steve Stred

Ritual by Steve Stred is a novella with some serious bite. It’s quite a difficult book to read on many levels, its no nonsense approach to taboo subjects causes an unease from pretty much page one and continues through the book to its grisly conclusion. You want to look away at numerous points, but Stred

This time, more than any other, he had to know the odds. Because this time, they were his. He was the fighter in the ring facing a stone-cold ruthless

Bend Over Boyfriend By Mike McClelland

“You can’t skip your own party,” Roger said as he handily tied his pale pink bowtie. I’d made the mistake of telling him I thought his bowties were cute when we’d first started dating, and I couldn’t very well tell him the truth now that we were married. Still, they suited his personality; classy, a
