Michael de Larrabeiti The Golden Goat One cold night more than a hundred years ago, on a dark hillside in the country of Provence, an old shepherd knelt by a wood fire and shook his sleeping son awake. As the boy opened his eyes the shepherd prodded the fire with his staff and a bright flame leapt upwards, making yellow shapes out of the black trees and revealing crooked twigs which clutched like witches fingers at the shepherds silver hair. Pacorro, said the shepherd, three of our sheep have ...

He gestured across the room to a female proctor. Go with her, if you must. Rin crossed her arms tightly across her chest and walked toward the second proctor. She was led behind a screen, patted thoroughly to make sure she hadnt packed test materials up any orifices, and then handed a formless blue sack. Put this on, said the proctor. Is ...

Deirdre Sullivan Perfectly Preventable Deaths Prologue Honeysuckle influenza, birth control and poison Our father died in flames when he was twenty-six and we were two. We dont remember. All we have is story. Sense memory, the feeling of soft earth. His name upon a pitted slab, limestone, lichen-pocked. Orange, white and crinkled dry as paper. The smell of grave implanting in our nail beds. Our fingers scraping through to trace his name. Tom Hayes. Dearly Beloved, you left too soon. They found ...

She walked up to the potted plant in the corner, turned and walked to the window, and turned back to the potted plant. With every step, she grew more and more impatient. Had Eva told her to wait in the dormitory, she might have been able to relax. But Andersons door was right there. He could pop out at any time. Theoretically, there was nothing to fear. Catherine was free from any contracts at the ...

Anderson had been running around the entire school, snapping at anything out of place. Which, in his eyes, was just about everything and everyone. Especially anyone who had their uniforms crooked, ate messily, slacked off during class, or breathed too loudly. He had landscapers come in and tidy up every visible plant around ...

Even if Eva had been standing at a proper angle to clearly see the papers, she doubted that she would understand most of it. A squiggly line here. A flat one there. Tons of words that were shorthand for something. One really had to be in the medical profession to understand any of it. Which was why she had asked. ...

Void Domain, Book 07 Chapter 001 Vacation Late May air in Florida felt sticky and viscous. Like wading through soup. It was almost nauseating to breathe in. Air up in Montana was dry. Even in the middle of winter with snow covering the ground, the air remained dry. Evas first breath after teleporting in had felt almost like she was drowning. Even after spending a few days wandering the streets, her skin still felt far too moist. Like she was in constant need of a shower. She had this constant ...

So much had happened and so much was going to happen that sitting in class and practicing thaumaturgy just felt unimportant. Like being concerned over a mosquito bite while bleeding out from a missing arm. Eva leaned back in her chair and shut her eyes. She was supposed to be practicing heat manipulation. None of Isaac Calvins directions actually made it to her conscious thoughts. ...

The year two-thousand. A bunch of people thought it was going to be the end of the world. Idiots, mostly. Some quit their jobs, packed their bags, and went on vacation. Entire life savings blown in a week. Some ran around screaming like chickens with their heads cut off. Others paraded around with signs ...

Her skin stuck to the black metal tiles as if she had been lying there for hours on end. But that was impossible. She had just been in class Juliana pressed a hand to her forehead. Her head felt about ready to burst open. Every thought sent another needle into her brain. Shaking her head, Juliana grit her teeth as she took stock of her situation. It didnt take long. The room was ...

All of it was such a drastic change from the asphalt streets, concrete buildings, and people. The fresh smell of the woods. The crisp, mid-May air. The crinkle of her tent in the cold air of wilderness mornings. The warmth of a blazing fire dancing in front of her. And, of course, her parents. She loved it all. Not that she hated being in a city. It was just the idea that she liked. The ...

Genoa Rivas barked out a laugh. Good. Good. She released Evas hand and clasped her own on the shoulder of her partner. With a light shove, the spindly man stumbled forwards. He managed to avoid crashing into Eva by inches. This is my husband, Carlos. A spindly arm stretched out to Eva. H-hello, he said in ...

After a brief scuffle of footsteps, the owner of the voice appeared next to the front counter. Ah, Eva. Good to see you again, the woman said, and who have you got there Another stray Eva shrugged her shoulders, hefting the sleeping kitten in her arms upwards. Not a stray this time. His collar says Mr. Mist but there is no owner ...
