Volume 43: July 2009
Welcome to the Edge of Propinquity. Volume 43 is now published. The month of July is a month of celebration, barbeques and fireworks. We have all that at the Edge of Propinquity in a slightly different manner. This month we have an age old competition, an innocent lost in the woods, a betrayal within the ranks of the enemy, a man doing his best and another man who has had enough.

Danyael - Try, Try Again by Nick Bergeron
When I've failed at something, I rarely go back to it. Then again, I rarely have an angel urging me on. I try bigger measures to spread the word, and finally decide that the world is dirty as Hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore.
