    by Tim Slee

    If you have killed hundreds of men in war, can you ever find peace? This is the question at the heart of Gentleman Jack.

After all, a lifetim... more

  • "Excuse Me; May I Say Something?"

    by Eric Jenard Rodwell
    Is this all there is to personhood? We are born, we live, and we die. What about the ultimate mysteries of life? The Existence of God: Fact or Fake News?
