Issue 57

An auto theft turns a businessman’s travel plans into a heart-pounding, ticking-clock adventure across Denver. Young lovers exploring the Greek island of Crete find themselves drifting permanently apart, and fissures advance in a couple’s decades-long relationship as they search for romance among ancient relics in Rome. In Paris, a restless expat living in a stately hotel overlooking the Eiffel Tower tires of her crushingly dreary digs and the repellently elite society, while elsewhere in France, a mysterious neighbor with mythical powers brings hope and joy to a sleepy rural community.

We proudly present the work of Robert J Binney, Lorraine Caputo, Rebecca Cardon, Bruce Harris, Ann Howells, Mark Jacobs, Mark J. Mitchell, Michael Robinson Morris, Richard Ploetz, Ann Power, and Ken Wetherington. Plus, a new essay and an interview with the critically acclaimed poet and short story writer Jim Daniels.
