What’s in Issue 455

Novel Kev’s model, Dracula, was comfortable enough that he need have no patience with real-estate speculators. But impecunious Kev must start at the bottom and get with the modern program, so to speak:
Phillip Donnelly, Kev the Vampire

Richard M. Smith, A Bridge to Earth
Chapter 5 : Back Again, part 3

The night-time sea still fascinates an aging fisherman with its beauty in forms both small and great: Mike Florian, Fire in the Water.

New contributor Terry Groves takes a slovenly automobilist on a wild ride in an eerily vampiric machine: Body Work.

New contributor Zarin Thomson paints a poignant picture of a youthful memory preserved by a being who is very old indeed: A Salient Point.
New contributor Nancy May recounts a typical suburban family’s evening — in the language of a space alien: The Family Whip.
