FICTION: She by Demelza

I stand here staring at the white marble stone in front of me, its form taking on life as I reflect upon its creation. I am mesmerised by its contours, fascinated by the way the light hits each curve casting muted shadows over the smooth almost translucent surface. Clouds ebb and flow under the direction

FICTION: Wing Dance by Jesse Winter

  Lana’s running solo tonight as she walks into Jake’s favorite wing-dive in all of New York City. A small tavern buried in the middle of Manhattan and a prime Wednesday-Wingsday destination.

FICTION: Kids Today by Probert Dean

I hate visiting Nana. All she ever talks about is the past. She’s so miserable that she’s actually become a depressant, and infects those around her with the same affliction. I’m glad I only have to see her once a week, since we put her in the virtual nursing home. I dread to think what

FICTION: Paul by C.R. Berry

November 9th 1966 Sixty-five. Seventy. Seventy-five. Alyson Ramirez’s foot hit the floor and her 1964 Ford Cortina screamed, straining for speeds it wasn’t used to. She felt the deep shudder that rose from the core of the car grind against her foot, palms and fingers through the accelerator and steering wheel. But she had to

FICTION: Underneath the Mango Tree by Rajeena Holland

I am eight.  I remember the heat, thick, and syrupy, sticking to my skin.  The sky is so bright it glares at me – as though a piece of skin has been stretched thin and pulled across the Indian hemisphere.  I squint up to the sun.  The sun is much bigger here than it is

FICTION: Emo Girl by Alex Grasham

18:13. Old guy rocks up. He’s usually here before me. Wearing a flat-cap tonight. Hard to tell what colour. Not black or blue. You can make out those colours in the dark. Maybe an oak-leaf green or a charcoal grey. It hides his white hair well. I clocked his old hands once, on the way home. They

FICTION: A Fun Thing To Do by Jamie Thunder

In the bedroom, Garrett was doing sit-ups while holding a magazine, and telling Amber why he couldn’t possibly come with her to the protest. “It’s not as if there’ll be no libraries left,” he said without breaking rhythm. He only spoke at the peak of each curl, so his words came in gasps of two

FICTION: Soul Machina by Joseph Sale

I must find The Machine. Darkness and prisons. The gargoyle of modern architecture turned inside out so that it enfolds me. I’m running through thickets of barbed wire, searching laser lights and glowing alarms like wolf eyes. Deeper and deeper winding down to some cosmic and infernal core. The belch of fumes from a gut.

FICTION: Too Big For The Small Press by Michael Marrotti

It’s funny how life works out. After four excruciating years in the small press scene, I was famous. A living, breathing overnight sensation. What’s even funnier is, I can’t attribute my writing to the fame. It was a complete denigration of the art form that awarded me the accolades. You’re shaking your head in disbelief,
