North by Kristy Truax-Nichols

“Do you ever think about flying?” Julie asks him. She’s got her toes tucked up under Chris’s leg, and he shifts and tries to ignore them. “I guess.” He runs a hand through his greasy brown hair and tucks a hank behind his ear. His voice is rough because he’s trying so hard not to …

The Greatest of His Age by Bart Allen

Do not tell me how piano lesson is to go. Is very well, young one, that you like to play the Schumann or the Schubert I give you, more than the Haydn or the Scarlatti, but you must play them all. We do not know what you will be. Oh, could be that I guess, …

The Master Shoemaker by Katya Oliva-Llego

Falco was a shoemaker in Orosa—the master shoemaker. He was the master, not because he made the best shoes, but because he was the only shoemaker in the town and its neighboring cities. He made ordinary, everyday shoes that were both sturdy and reliable, which was all that the people needed. He hammered away in …

The Woods of Wistman’s Grove by Tyson Young

The sceptics will tell you that the woods of Wistman’s Grove are a myth, their howls no more a chorus of mummified voices than the wind through bare trees. Yet when travelling the roads beyond Clearbell, even the naysayers take the sinuous trail over the hills. Lest they disprove their own doubt. Most believers are …

Butterfly Effect by Mishell Baker

I’m sitting behind a bush staring at an airstrip with an assault rifle on my lap, and for the life of me I can’t remember why. But Toto, I am definitely not in San Diego anymore. Not the war, either. Women don’t get drafted, and I am not in the desert; behind me and across …

The Leaf by Erik T. Johnson

I. A Wise and Worldly Piece of Wood I led my father through the lanes of our apple orchard, watching wormy balls of fruit drop to the soft earth, so glutted with decay they couldn’t roll. The sky was a healthy blue flame and my father put his hand up to block the light from …

To Dive Into a Godling, Where Life Begins by Jacques Barcia

Obsidian hooks tear the wild proto-universe’s crust like the tooth of a shark ripping through tender human flesh. The Megalodon makes a steep turn larboard as the universe’s strength wrenches the ship’s black dragging chains nailed to the main deck. This is a tough one, thinks Guido. A really tough one. The sailorman hurries across …
