Basque Case : Separation Anxiety in the Pyrenees
John M. Edwards
A merry little trip to the Basque Country, an autonomous utopia containing a bit of both France and Spain is like trying to find the original site of the Garden of Eden, which Basques claim might be hidden in their unrecognized “country”: Euskadi!

What’s Wrong With This Picture?
Dean Borok

Borrowed geography can cause trouble
Saleem Ayoub Quna

As I was packing for my vacation in Sharm Al-Sheikh, one item on my must-do list was clearly underlined; See the straits of Tiran at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba

After The Tennis Match 
Martin Green

Paul had always thought the patio was the best thing about the club, somehow it was always cool and pleasant there, even in the heat of a Sacramento summer
Charlie Bowers

Marty's shoelaces dangled, swinging in the wind. He had worn his Converse trainers to work that day; they looked entirely out of place in his shirt and tie ensemble, but it hardly mattered. He might be remembered as a fashion maverick
Zach Runs from a Great Man
Michael Chacko Daniels

When his stories cautioned him, “Go slow and easy, Bombay boy, you’ve had only six months in the mysteries of the Brahmins of Boiled Bean Town..."
Old Photographs
Lacy Lalonde

It is still early in the morning when the old man steps out his front door. He can feel the cool morning air and wishes he wore a coat. He can hear the vendors setting up shop, putting their goods on display. Soon this street will be noisy and full of people, but now it is calm and roomy.

by Rosalie Warren

(Pub March 2011)
Sam North review
Two tragedies befall Anna Hendserson. Her twin sister Chloe died recently (run over) and then took up residence in her head. How do you cope with loss when your sister refuses to lie down? Worse, she kisses the boy you think you might be in love with. Confused? Not as much as poor Anna.
