  • Roland Rodené - Tina et Rudy

    Tina et Rudy

    — Mais Rudy, tu ne peux pas abandonner ces choses-là : le pâturage, monter à cheval,
    planter du pois et piquer des herbes.
    — Jamais, mademoiselle Lucienne ! Si je ne le fais pas, je trahis mon pays agricole, je trahis
    mes origines, je trahis mes parents et je vous trahis aussi, les gens de la ville.
    RÉFLEXION
    Si le hasard existe, la destinée aussi.
    Les gens affranchis sont réellement riches.
    Les jeunes gens sont capables ! Ne les limitez pas !
    Ne trahissez jamais vos amis !
    Un bon ami peut être de n’importe quelle nationalité !
    Certains hommes sont réellement transnationaux.
    Répondez à l’appel de votre coeur !
    Le monde est à nous.
    Donnez et prenez aussi !
    Si nous avons besoin de l’intelligence et du courage pour la vie, bien sûr, pour bien mourir,
    nous avons besoin de la foi en Dieu à travers son Fils Jésus-Christ.
    C’est bien le contenu de Tina & Rudy.

  • Steven Craig Welch -  Tiny and Craig

    Tiny and Craig: Common Decency and Table Manners

    This story was written as a bedtime story fairy tale for county jail inmates’ bedtime story so the writer felt safe.

    About the author:
    Francisco native since arriving in 1955. Lives in Sonoma County wine country. Former standup comedian, pirate radio show host, chef/cook and dishwasher/owner of tiny bistro in Humboldt County.

    The story began as a bedtime story for other inmates in County jail when I was afraid of them. Tired of the rat races, I ran a classified ad “Revenge is best served as a cold cream pie’ and threw around 400 pies for a nominal fee. Choctaw tribal member uncomfortable enough with
    tech to still be carrying a flip phone. Call before you text please. Yakoke is Choctaw for Thank you. Yakoke.

  • Edgar Biamonte -  Welcome to Summersville, USA

    Welcome to Summersville, USA

    Welcome to Summersville is a humorous, satirical novel.
    Sal D’ Angelo hopes to give his son, Randy, $1,500 to start college in 1972, but
    is broke. Though Sal lacks restaurant experience, Pearl persuades him and his
    family to run her luncheonette at her Catskill bungalow colony, claiming they’ll
    profit $5,000.
    The soda counter and vital kitchen equipment is old and unworkable, he
    soon discovers. There’s no air conditioning or acoustical ceiling tiles to absorb
    the deafening noise. Playing pinball, campers push, fight and shout. They curse
    when they tilt the machine or when balls land in traps and they try to rewire
    the machines to get free games. Sal’s wife touches a girl while leading her out
    for screaming hysterically at a misbehaving ball, and her father threatens to sue.
    Lounging, teens are reluctant to remove their feet from tables containing salt
    and sugar they pile and squirt with ketchup. Two male dogs knock over chairs
    while tearing after a female poodle in heat. Waiting on line for their orders, parents
    push one another, demand better service, and curse the family for running out
    of spaghetti.
    Girls scream when the campers flap a dead snake on the counter. So do their
    moms playing mahjong outside after receiving the same gift. A bully ties up the
    D’ Angelos’ youngest son inside a dilapidated bungalow.
    Before Sal leaves, Pearl falsely accuses him of taking home most of his stock
    instead of leaving it for her. Consequently, she persuades Bernie, renter of the
    machines, to give her Sal’s share after adjusting them to provide extra free games.
    More curious about the obvious record take than angry, exhausted, Sal drives
    home instead of calling the police.

  • JENN SHELL -  Wet Confetti

    Wet Confetti

    Rolled, silver white hair created a halo about the woman’s head. The lamplight cast oblique shadows on her delicate, high cheekbones. Above the cheekbones, her eyes were ice blue and steady, belying the eighty years of this statuesque woman. Her demeanor exhibited and commanded an aura of aristocracy. Kathleen’s throat tightened and felt dry. She trembled slightly as she spoke. She was a reasonably intelligent, thirty-eight-year-old woman quite capable of comprehending all that had been depicted and yet, the shocking concept of the old woman’s claim was loathsome and incredulous. Acceptance of such cruel allegations against her grandmother, whom she so admired, was totally denied. In this emotionally charged family saga, Kathleen is shocked to learn of her grandmother’s wicked past from her Great Aunt Rose. As if the shocking revelations aren’t hard enough for Kathleen to deal with, she is forced to make a decision that will determine the course of her future.
