What’s in Issue 692

Novel Jiri has not been able to contact Mira since she was expelled from the wealthies’ estate and returned to her original enclave. But, over the years, Mira has been successful. She has risen in the ranks of the Committee, which assures law enforcement in the enclave and has a political agenda of its own.
Bill Kowaleski, Living Standards
Part II: Reform. Chapter 8: Joliet Enclave
In the Old West, “justice” often came at the end of a rope or from the barrel of a gun. In this story, only an old Texas Ranger stands for the truth: Gary Clifton, The Del Rio Crossing, part 1; conclusion.

New contributor Richard Murray has a warning about time travel: time machines are impossibly complex to build and use. And if psychopaths build one, everybody may be in for Troubled Times, part 1; conclusion.

New contributor Will Shadbolt paints a charming picture of two childhood friends who share fantasies and build sandcastles together. But you know what happens to Sandcastles, part 1; conclusion.
Poetry Douglas Young, I’ll Listen to Bach
Shola Balogun, In Rwanda
