The Edge of Propinquity - Volume 40

Volume 40: April 2009


Welcome to The Edge of Propinquity. Volume 40 is now published. April is a month full of tricks and traps. This month, we have a trap sprung on an enemy, a trap planned for another enemy, the trick of dealing with the truth, the effort of avoiding a trap and the trick of compromising one's faith. April is a tough one and the bloodshed is painful.

Luminations - Falls by Rick Silva AKA shaharazad
Mattie Ives begins working her way down her hit list, following a trail of clues left by a man who once handled Richard Harrington's finances. Her investigation leads her to a burned-out house in a small town, and to evidence of a past horror. But being trapped in the body of a man suspected of murder becomes a big problem once the police get involved. Especially when the cop doing the investigating happens to be one of the names on Mattie's list.

Santa Maria - Omens by James M. Sullivan AKA sylvan
Ant experiences something new and impossible, Rodrigo worries about Jackson Montgomery- and he should. Meanwhile Mac gets back to nature and his mother has another run-in with Rodina. Later Daphne makes an alarming discovery.

Solstice - Spring, Part One by Ivan Ewert AKA ivan23
Spring brings new life, new awakenings, and new trouble to old friendships in Solstice. When you've spent your life sheltering someone from the unpleasant truth, how can you deny them when they ask for help - no matter what that help might be?

Danyael - Scorched Earth by Nick Bergeron
Sometimes when I clean I go a little overboard. Still, the satisfaction of a newly sparkling house and the feeling of a fresh start make it worthwhile. It's too bad that our lives are more difficult to scrub clean.

Guest Author - The Sound of Gears by Ferrett Steinmetz
Herbert is a man who lost everything to one of the greatest conspiracies in the world. The only thing he has left is to work for that conspiracy to try to help those in the conspiracy's eye so that they do not also lose what is most important to them. It is a deal with a devil made of gears and blood.

Have you ever looked over the edge and seen something looking back at you?
