  • Tads, dramatizes a conversation between the first amphibians to survive the treacherous journey out of the ocean to the beach.
  • Johnny Elgam and the Newport Kid, by Aaron Shay.  A hilarious Old West Showdown between the meanest, trickiest, snarliest pokemon champs this side of Hawks Prairie.
  • Scent of Man, by Solomon Olmstead.  The etiquette of growing a mustache – an idle conversation with life-changing consequences.
  • The Square, by Michael Wallace – Schoolyard politics go a little too far in this playground competition…Funny, heartbreaking, and a little scary.
  • Poor Shem, by Gregory Hischak – trouble in teh office when a co-worker has a fatal run-in with the Xerox machine.  Do we call a priest, a repairman…or just use the by-pass tray?
  • The Lazy Beauty, by Bryan Willis — a classic fairy tale with an unexpected ending.  Be careful what you wish for….
