Jo Walton A BURDEN SHARED Penny woke on Tuesday morning and cautiously assessed the level of pain. If she didnt move at all, there was nothing but the familiar bone-deep ache in all her joints. That wasnt so bad, nothing stabbing, nothing grinding. Penny smiled. Ann must be having a good day. Maybe even heading for another minor remission. This was much better than it had been on Saturday, when Anns pain had woken Penny with a shock that time, she had flinched against it and made it worse. This ...

Brenda Peynado THE KITE MAKER Youve never seen a kite fly until youve seen an alien fly one. Dragonfly wings on their backs trembling with anticipation, these deep sighs from their purple mouths as theyre unrolling the spool. They run with their slow, spindly legs to let the kite pick up speed. When the diamond of cloth is let loose from their skeletal hands, you can see their armored shoulders strain to rise up with it. As the diamond dips and rises on the string, you can hear these great yips, ...

Pretend you are a place far away, the last vibrant V of green and gold and tessellated rock before the sea and sky slither south unchecked for three thousand lonesome turns of a terns wing. Once upon a time the waters rose to cut you off from your mother continent, better independence through drowning. Some day soon, when the ice across the ocean turns to hungry waves, all the rest will follow, sliding beneath an oil-slick ...

They were hunkered down in the closet of Scotts room in their home in Middle Falls, Oregon. Even hidden away, the sounds of the fight in the living room still echoed loudly in their ears. His closet had been their sanctuary for the endless series of fights his parents had. This particular set-to had started like many before it. It had begun with their father ...

Like a well-rehearsed ballet movement, the vehicles turned and reversed towards the largest building. With a loud hissing of airbrakes, they parked in a neat row. Men climbed out, and while some raised the shutters on the tailgates and climbed inside, two men headed for the entrance. ...

Most of my books have been written in the early morning at Starbucks before going to work in the days before I retired. The cost of my coffee and a croissant or bagel ran to about 6.50 a day. When you add that up over a year or so it costs a lot to write a book. I produce my books as Kindle books because the process is simple and free. I sell my books on Amazon for 0.99 because that is the lowest price Amazon ...

The Table Pinlighting is a hell of a way to earn a living. Underhill was furious as he closed the door behind himself. It didnt make much sense to wear a uniform and look like a soldier if people didnt appreciate what you did. He sat down in his chair, laid his head back in the headrest and pulled the helmet down over his forehead. As he waited for the pin-set to warm up, he remembered the girl in the outer corridor. She had looked at it, then looked at him scornfully. Meow. That was all she had ...
