Lost Weekend in Dover
A Nightmare in Space A Travel
John F. Fisher CAPT USNR (ret.)

Citizens of New Jersey Unite Against Government Suppression!
James Campion

Before heading to Europe to kiss Vladimir Putin’s ass and after spending a week getting into Twitter wars with cable TV hosts, President Trump unleashed his completely unnecessary paranoid-central, daddy-didn’t-love-me-so-even-though-I-won-the-election-I-need-to-prove-there-is-voter-fraud-cause-I-got-pummeled-in-the-popular-vote commission cleverly titled Election Integrity
Our European Demons
James Skinner

In the Red Light District    
Jim Meirose

Snake Doggett the cook lived in an unpainted house between a hemp shop and a whorehouse with his roommate Bert, on the edge of the red light district.
Bill and Sissy
Abigail George

There were of course things that Sissy had said and did in her short life that she regretted. In the end, didn’t it make her stronger, she often thought to herself. 
Death in the Castle
Andrew Lee-Hart

There he was, just as I expected him to be, sat in the castle grounds reading The Times, a respectable looking man enjoying the last few moments of his respectable life.

North and Central by Bob Hartley
Literary Fiction
Pub: Tortoise Books Chicago, IL

'Gritty daily schedule of a Chicago bar loaded with real characters and thick with a smoke haze. Andy the barkeep is wise, cynical and pretty sure he's going the way of the dinosaurs. The 70's brought back with aplomb. Pour me another Old Style'.
