    In January, 1937, you do whatever you can to get by. Matthew Becker is a recent college grad, multi-lingual, multi-cultural and a crack shot since childhood. He’s also one step away from the breadlines. He makes money on both sides of the law while trying to find meaning, honor and self-respect in a world of chaos. Becker and his best friend Angelo are driving back to Jersey from a crooked boxing match outside Philadelphia when they come upon two gangsters beating a man to death. The victim i... more

She can’t deny the embarrassment that she has failed and the fact that she’s now trapped in the blue-collar town she so hoped to escape.

  • Turnstiles

    by Andrea McKenzie Raine
    Martin Sourdough is a homeless person who has chosen to turn his back on the corporate, material world; Willis Hancocks Jr. is a barrister, an alcoholic philanderer, and a misogynist; and Evelyn (aka Yvonne) is a prostitute. Turnstiles speaks to these social problems through the smaller scope of each character's individual trials. There is a struggle that exists between the need to serve one's own needs and the expectation to participate in the larger social scheme. Martin and Willis are both tr... more
  • Salt & Sacrifice

    by John O'neill
    Exiled for their beliefs, the faithful have been imprisoned deep inside the salt mines of ancient Rome. For the empire, salt is a symbol of life and prosperity; for the Christian slaves who mine it, its only meaning is death. Barbaric persecution and cave-ins threaten to stamp them out entirely, but beyond the shafts their outlawed religion is growing more quickly each day. Against the backdrop of rebellion and rising religious tension, Pallas, a retired master builder and former soldier,... more
  • Felicity the Dragon

    by Ruthie Briggs-Greenberg
    Felicity the dragon may live near a castle and lounge in its moat, but she is not a typical dragon: “no smoke from her nose, no spikes on her toes, and her wings were too tiny to carry her hiney.” Because Felicity is small and different, she keeps to herself instead of playing with others. But one day, a small boy falls into the castle moat, and Felicity has the chance to help—and make some new friends in the process.

  • From 9

    by Stephen Gerard
    From 9 is my first collection of poetry. It is separated into six sections, each with its own theme. As such, From 9 moves through a range of emotions. At times the poems are provocative, tender, humorous, impatient, dark, and elegant. Although these subjects are as old as time itself, my goal has been to re-imagine them with my own unique perspective.

    by Elizabeth Malin

  • Hello World 5000

    by Jeff Hunt
    Hello World 5000 can be called a "children's story," if you’re a child, that is, who’s either secretly or noticeably intelligent, slightly on the sad side, possessing a fine vocabulary, and who has perhaps even grown embarrassingly tall and has a job. The story begins with a boy named Royal. Royal was named after a typewriter and raised by "The Master," Eduardo Aquifer XXVII, the last in a 500 year old line of unpublished authors who runs St. Millar's Writing Academy for Illiterate Orphans, ... more
