Brooke Bolander NO FLIGHT WITHOUT THE SHATTER Pretend you are the land. 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 ...

HAMA NADAKIRTI 111 MINUTES I saw Having, Not Having, Being, Not Being because I happened to duck into the Global, a theater I dislike, while running from a man trying to break my nose. The operators of the Global are self-congratulatory and condescending, as if showing foreign films in a prosperous native neighborhood is an act of mercy rather than a profitable ...

Shawn Inmon THE VIGILANTE LIFE OF SCOTT McKENZIE Chapter One 1958 Ten-year-old Scott McKenzie put his arm around his little sister Cheryl. 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. ...

I looked up from my laptop and smiled at Zoni standing there in her short black and white clingy nightshirt that barely covered anything. She was tiny but she had curves and knew how to use them to make my interest rise. She was holding a coffee mug in one hand and her other hand rested on one of those delectable curves. Im okay, baby, I ...

Nigel Thompson PHEIA For divers everywhere. This Edition I write my stories for fun. 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 ...

Pointing with pride is the phrase the great accomplishments of the human race. The race which has discovered radio, vitamin pills, crooners, war, airplanes, 6-dollar theater seats, appendix operations, taxes etc. etc. But once upon a time, a scholar who was also a witty man said: Man is an emotional animal who sometimes stops to think. Stopping to think is the profession of ...

To Cele Patterson, the angel of Peter Cooper with love and affection обратно 1 Desolation is magnified at seventy miles per hour. At that speed, colors that are normally separate and distinct tend to blend together like the test pattern on an old TV. Sharply defined objects melt into one another, precluding identification, forestalling recognition. Landscapes adopt the illusion of reality. Its worse in the desert because there is so little to focus on. Those creatures that dont hide usually ...

No one knew how many of them there had been before they were no more, least of all him. There had been a time when countings were done, but such behaviors belonged not to his time but to others. There had been several such times, he knew. Eras as well as countings. First came the Expansion. That was followed by the ...

Prelude I only remembered that it was my birthday because Mom and Dad lit the candles on the cake and we sat down around fourteen small tongues of flame. The storm that night made it seem as if the whole universe held nothing but rapid flashes of lightning surrounding our small dining room. Electric blue bursts froze ...
