Volume 39: March 2009
Welcome to The Edge of Propinquity. Volume 39 is now published. March is a time of changes for good or ill. Transitions are never easy. This month we have the compromise of principles for the greater good, a new but uneasy alliance, a debt of blood taken on by an innocent, a search for meaning and a sacrifice of blood family for chosen family.
Luminations - Exorcisms by Rick Silva AKA shaharazad
Chester Hall gets hired to expose a charlatan on the set of a paranormal investigation reality TV show. It takes a hoaxer to know one, and Chess knows that Ronald Dietrich has plenty of experience when it comes to hoaxes. But by allowing an old enemy into to become an ally, has Chess incurred the wrath of a new enemy who is far more dangerous?
Santa Maria - Introductions by James M. Sullivan AKA sylvan
Ant’s faction, the Gamin, and the dreaded Ghost Lords meet up and plan to work together giving Brady and Kaliope a chance to spend some time together. Mac gets to know his two adopted brothers, who may be more than they seem. A cousin of Bree whom Rodrigo never knew about introduces himself.
Solstice - Winter, Part Three by Ivan Ewert AKA ivan23
Old foes face each other once more in a dingy apartment building on Solstice's east side, and as a blood-price from the dawn of time is exacted, new friendships are forged in the light of a new day.
Danyael - Communion by Nick Bergeron
When people are confused or depressed, often they'll turn to food. I tried that, and it didn't work out so well. Then, they'll turn to religion seeking answers. I also tried that. I didn't like the answers I got.
Guest Author - Ducks by Brendan Detzner
Sometimes, family is more than just blood. It is the people and creatures you care about more than yourself. Greta loves feeding the ducks. The only problem is that her caretaker knows there are no ducks in the area. When he is faced with a set up by Greta's grandson, Greta proves she can take care of her chosen family despite her age.
