A Turtle in the Works by Timothy O. Goyette

Seeking advanced ancient knowledge isn't all it's cracked up to be. -- Science Fiction

Left Minding the Farm by John David Rose

14 year old Calvin Morales lives in an impoverished city of the future that suffers from the effects of global warming and a financial collapse. His biggest concern is finding food. Only the Zhongguo Pan-America Corporation seems to have the resources to make things better. (Note: This short story was inspired in part by the vertical farming ideas developed by Dickson D. Despommier.) -- Science Fiction

Looby and Fritz by Jeromy Henry

Imagine Abbot and Costello or Laurel and Hardy as fantasy adventurers. Throw in misshapen creatures on the moon playing poker and golf. Have everyone speak in bad British accents. Now you have some idea what this weird and wacky fantasy is about... -- Fantasy

Miss Tripidipidi by Astrid Nielsen

Crippled Arthur just wants to be left alone in his misery, but his new strange neighbour, Miss Tripidipidi won't let him--but perhaps it is really her, who is in need of help, Arthur thinks, when one night she asks him a strange favour... -- Alternative

Sequins by Andrew Dunn

This story emerged. First the title popped in my mind. Then it flowed. There were several other ideas that came and went for the ending before this one naturally seemed to fit best. The particular style of this is an artsy take I sometimes try with fiction. (Uniquely, in this story the last non-proper noun in each paragraph almost creates a corollary statement that relates back to the story...almost). I hope you enjoy and thank you for reading SEQUINS. -- Alternative
