Francesco Mazzotta CELLULAR ACTIVITY To my family and my friends. PROLOGUE The heavy and wet air floats in the room like an old and bored ghost. The stench of fuel and engine oil joins that of sweat, a sick alchemy tasting like an old dusty workshop. Dirty and bony hands strongly grasp a big wrench, the knuckles whiten to further tighten a valve. A flickering fluorescent tube lights up the scene, drawing irregular sharp shadows. A rough voice, made by years of cheap cigarettes, comes up from ...

Giacomo Sartori I AM GOD For Piuma Lange, who having passed on a weakness for the page, then bequeathed me her indomitable fragility. Is it not a paradox that the Christian Religion has in large part been the source of atheism or more generally of religious unbelief Yet I think that is the case. Man is not naturally incredulous because he does not reason much and does not care a great deal about the causes of things. Giacomo Leopardi, Zibaldone Michael Caesar and Franco DIntino, eds.

POOR MISS FINCH by Wilkie Collins TO MRS. ELLIOT, OF THE DEANERY, BRISTOL. WILL YOU honor me by accepting the Dedication of this book, in remembrance of an uninterrupted friendship of many years More than one charming blind girl, in fiction and in the drama, has preceded Poor Miss Finch.

The attempt here made is to appeal to an interest of another ...

Philip Hemplow THE INNSMOUTH SYNDROME It was only when the indicator light of the car in front began to blink that Carla realised how dark it was getting. The sky beyond the left side windows was still purple with sunset, but on the right it was already black and studded with stars. The other vehicle began to climb the sliproad, leaving her alone on the narrow two-lane. Carla flipped on the main beams and pressed her foot down, coaxing another ten miles per hour from the rented Honda. It was ...

I try to propel myself to the surface, kicking furiously, treading for sunlight. I dont know where I am or how I got herebut I know I cant breathe, and I cant last much longer.

Jonathan A. Taylor MEYER-HOFMANN AG 1 Crouched in the boat, two figures surveyed the island coastline and prepared for their landing. The cloudless night sky filled the North Atlantic bay with moonlight. A dormant ocean swell heaved upwards, its smooth back broken by the bow wave of the small craft. The sound of the outboard motor, which coughed and sputtered through the cold water, was drowned out by waves breaking over a rapidly approaching shoreline. The light ground fog had been visible from ...
