Issue 55

A factory employee reevaluates his future while collecting his colleague from prison during a challenging business trip between Southern California and Mexico. A capricious journalist with a mysterious past inspires desire in a lonely, solitary bachelor. In Western Africa, an impulsive tourist looking for love winds up in a terrifying situation with a powerful arms trafficker. And a smart-mouthed P.I., reliant on immoderate marketing sponsorship, cuts a deal with law enforcement to locate a fugitive with curious connections to animal sideshow celebrities.

We proudly present the work of Charles Joseph Albert, Katie Baker, Robert Boucheron, Jeff Burt, David Hagerty, David Havird, Mark Jacobs, W. M. McIntosh, William Miller, Peter Mladinic, George Moore, and Jon Wesick.
