BEFORE I HANG by Andrew Dunn

Lately, I've been watching re-runs of old western TV shows and movies mainly from the 1950s through early 1970s. That provided the nucleus for this story. Initially, I was going to stick closer to the idea of a condemned man in an old western environment but I was going to add some quirky stuff just to make it different. Then I decided to change the scene to outer space while bringing in some contemporary themes. (The idea for Cyrus in part was inspired by a recent visit to a museum that featured some old Saddam Hussein-era artifacts). I hope the end result is something you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing it. -- Science Fiction

The Intelligent Man by Sho Ray

When people read this story I'm always curious to see if they think the woman won or the man, and who is the villain? Lenore has to deal with her boyfriend's best friend on the make in that stupid and obnoxious way that all us women dread, while her boyfriend sits back and silently enjoys the friction which he believes he is playing to his benefit. -- Science Fiction

Atonement by Michael Bishop

In a course of a quest an enchantress commits a momentous blunder. Rather than face the music for it she flees to a place where she will not be found. However a fellow enchantress tracks her down and gives her an opportunity to redeem herself, an opportunity which she accepts. -- Fantasy
