Volume 42: June 2009
Welcome to the Edge of Propinquity. Volume 42 is now published. The hot month of June brings with hotter tempers. For one person, it gets the best of their friendship. For another person, it leads to everlasting vengeance. In another story, we have vengeance from the past affecting the present and we have a choice mad, not in anger, but in care and thought.
Luminations - Curve by Rick Silva AKA shaharazad
Twenty-five years ago, Bobby Whittaker betrayed and helped to murder Mattie Ives. Now Mattie is on a path of vengeance against all of the people responsible for her death. Bobby Whittaker died in a car wreck seven years after he helped kill Mattie. But Mattie isn't about to let that little detail get in the way of her revenge.
Santa Maria - Stars by James M. Sullivan AKA sylvan

Solstice - Spring, Part Three by Ivan Ewert AKA ivan23

Danyael - If At First You Don't Succeed by Nick Bergeron
Doing good can be a lot more complicated than it seems. If you don't think about what you're doing, you can often do more ill than good, or find yourself in dire straights. They say that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. Mine was paved with quarters.
June - Choice by Alma Alexander AKA anghara
It is Essen's birthday and as a birthday gift, an angel gives Essen the choice to have the life that could have been. But Essen is wary as gifts come with a price and she isn't sure she wants to pay the price to have a life she's only dreamed of.
