  1. I loved this story, and the amazing twists and turns it took. Anyone who doesn't feel good after reading it needs to have their nerve endings reconnected. R

    Martyrs of the Heart by Cynus

    This one is a thought-provoker. As a rule I'm not a huge fan of fantasy tales but luckily that was only a moderate element here. The story was about the journeys of two souls, and kept us guessing until the end. And of course I'm sure I'm not the only reader left wondering "what's next" with the two characters, and for that matter with the unusual world they are in. R

    Second Chances by Cynus

    I see that an omnibus post was started about all the Valentine's Day themed stories recently posted, but I think for the work these authors put in there is warrant for some individual commentary. I liked this story a lot. If it was a movie, the audience would have been cheering at the end. And I really would have liked to discover more about "what happens next" after the story ended. Mission accomplished, I would day. R

    The Bench by William King

    An interesting contemplation. I don't know if there is a formal name for this genre of story. R

    La MalagueƱa by Pedro

    This was another story to have the audience cheering. I especially liked the surprising (although lightly foreshadowed) "small world" aspects. Still wondering what happened to Mr. DaSilva, though. R
  6. Another excellent Cole Porter tale. I thought of the lead character in "First Year" as we got to know Jason. Favorite quote: "How was I supposed to act normally when my heart was acting like someone was loading it down with adrenaline and testosterone and who knew what else?" Also: "I lay there, tired but ready to leap tall buildings in a single bound." And, yes, the audience was cheering at the end. R

    You Belong To Me

    I highly recommend this short story by a new author http://www.storylover.us/?t=2R6PCUp1Xdh3fcqX A well written emotional story that won't fail to bring a tear to your eyes - I guarantee it. Take a look, it is a wonderful tale and evokes an image of the past rural America that will live in your imagination as will the history that unfolds.

    A Death by Stephen King

    The Death, a new short story by Stephen king, is available read at The New Yorker. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/03/09/a-death-stephen-king
  9. Awesome, Cole! Or should that be Awesome Cole has written another doozy. Whichever, 'A Modern Fantasy' is an awesome short story that had me grinning throughout. Peachy, and with expletives too. Read it!

    Chuck Palahniuk - Guts

    Chuck Palahnuik wrote Fight Club, a very successful novel that was made into a very successful film (Brad Pitt and Edward Norton). So, today I was wandering the net--as you do--and came across his site. As I haven't read any of his work I thought--a rarity--that I'd read one of his short stories. I've no idea why I picked the one I did, but I thought I'd share it with you all. I won't say anymore as that would ruin the surprise. Without further ado, here is Chuck Palahnuik's 'Guts.' Umm ... it's probably best not to read this just before lunch.
