Volume 6: June 2006
The June volume of the Edge of Propinquity has been published! Along with the usual set of stories from our four authors, we have two guest authors this month: Cherie Priest and Stina Leicht. I hope you enjoy the stories we have for you this month that include a paradise that has become hell, an unwanted sacrifice, the question of perspective and the discovery that even if you want to go back, you can't.
