Volume 26: February, 2008Hello everyone!
Volume 26 of The Edge of Propinquity has been published! February is a time of love and joy. The winter is almost over and hints of spring are around every corner. So, too, is February a time of pain, lose and loneliness. Love can be as terrible as it is wonderful. It is both a balm for the soul and a most vicious weapon. This month, we have a scorned offer of friendship, a haunting that changes one from the inside, the slow gathering of pieces of a city, a broken promise mended, an attempted rescue and a promise that death is not the end that is then revealed as a curse.

Guest Author - The Valley by Alana Joli Abbot
True love is the hardest thing to get over. It is also the strongest reason one can have for retribution. In the story of "The Valley", the land of the dead itself cries out for retribution against having its people taken from it and love, in all its forms, is its most vicious weapon.
