The Edge of Propinquity - Volume 41

Volume 41: May 2009


Welcome to the Edge of Propinquity. Volume 41 is now published. May is Spring in full bloom and high spirits. All of nature is shifting and growing. Just like the Edge of Propinquity. This month we have the first step of a long journey, the first step in a plan of revenge, the first murder of a new darkness, the first acceptance that not everything can be done as planned and a new relationship growing out of an old one.

Luminations - Connections by Rick Silva AKA shaharazad
Private investigator Chester Hall is tracking down the men who murdered Mattie Ives, but it's a job that he can't do alone. Reluctantly, he begins reestablishing old connections. He'll have to learn to accept some help, because with what Chess is up against, he'll need more than just Mattie's disembodied spirit on his side.

Santa Maria - Encounters by James M. Sullivan AKA sylvan
The Chroniclers shed some light on Ant's odd experience while Skipping, Calliope and Brady have a chance encounter while search for missing Joel. Mackenzie has an encounter at the beach leaving him worried but relieved while Rod has an encounter that leaves him horrified.

Solstice - Spring, Part Two by Ivan Ewert AKA ivan23
Vulcan's kept Bacchus sober (or nearly) the last two days, working to come up with a plan to discredit or disgrace Mars, the God of War, returning home from a tour in Iraq. But spring sets our minds to pleasure more often than to penitence, and once on the barstool, old habits die hard.

Danyael - Call to Adventure by Nick Bergeron
I love mornings. Everything is fresh and filled with energy. I've set myself up to start anew with the morning, and I think the universe is finally going to let things line up for me. After all, when I'm doing the work of an angel, how can I go wrong? I just need to hit the unemployment office and fill out a few forms.

Guest Author - Choking on Red Flowers by Mari Ness AKA mariness
When a small grey girl invades his dreams and the dreams of his friend, almost killing her, David knows something is horribly wrong. The two of them join together to figure out what the little grey girl wants before one of them winds up dead.

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