Tim Maughan INFINITE DETAIL for sava 1. AFTER The pathetic tinkle of the shops bell announces their first visitor, the first believer of the day. The first of the regulars, the tired-looking mothers and lost children, the ones that come in just to catch a quick word with Mary, to thank her, to nervously leave offerings on her desk, to smile their awkward, uncomfortable smiles. The ones that just pop in to stare at the sad, pale, distant, generic dead faces. All right, Janet, Tyrone says. Hello, ...

At the time I composed Benbassa, I didnt know any Jews, unless one counted the sweltering Rafael Cohen, which no one ...

Simon Ings THE SMOKE For Michelle ONE - This desert, stretching in every direction visible to the observer, is not smooth. Its topology is in fact absurdly disordered. Yet the observing eye, unable to parse its complexity, flattens everything. Simply to comprehend it, the eye must reduce its thousand thousand defiles and dried riverbeds, stands of silver gidgee trees and banks of Mitchell grass, to a flat monotony. This desert is made of stones and sand and indeterminate things which, alive or ...

Its an old idea, a poison in the ether, a danger carried in by the wind. A strange haze is seen drifting through town on that first night, the night the trouble begins. It arrives like weather, or like smoke, some say later, but no one can locate any fire. Some blame the drought, which has been bleeding away the lake for years, and browning the air with ...

The plasteel floor of the troop shuttles passenger compartment twisted beneath Logan McCoys boots like a dinghy bucking in a stormy sea. His hard, moulded seat rose beneath him as the shuttle climbed, then the thick, black webbing straps across his chest pulled his shoulders down as the seat dropped away, and left his stomach hanging in mid-air. He closed his eyes, and tried to ignore the constant creaking ...

The pushing and shoving quickly escalated, a beefy townsfolk player knocking one of the First Country players to the rock-hard ground. The crowd cheered louder, and I joined in with them.
