The Edge of Propinquity
Issue 71: November 2011
Welcome to issue 71 of the Edge of Propinquity. This is the penultimate issue of the magazine. As winter moves in, all anyone can do is take a stand against the storms. So, too, do our stories take their stands. This month, we have storms weathered, discoveries made, a choice for death, a choice for life, and the breaking of a heart.
Credencium - Full Circle - by Kaolin Fire AKA kaolinfire
A lost soul returns to Joshua in his dreams. There, in the midst of running from his nightmares, he finds answers to everything that's happened to him since he arrived in Berkeley. The stakes of his success or failure are laid clear.
Flotsam - Fimbulwinter - by Peter M. Ball AKA petermball
The Fimlbulwinter begins and Keith's allies come up with a desperate plan - sacrifice a King or a Hero in winter to ensure spring comes again. There's a handful of volunteers willing to go through with it, but the most effective choice of all is hampered because his soul is promised to a different fate.
Idolwood - Birth, Breath, Life, Death - by Ivan Ewert AKA ivan23
In the Hanged Man's suburban throne room, watched over by his dolls, the Covenant debates their move. Grey wants nothing more than to execute the sorcerer, to protect his son and his home by removing the greatest threat to their safety. Alex and Edie have other ideas, though, ideas the Hanged Man seeks to exploit - fanning the flames until the final die is cast.
The Ones Who Call - In Winter's Grasp - By Alina Pete
February is always the deepest part of winter, but this winter is the fiercest in memory due to the continued animosity of the Ice Spirits, the Sīpisis family's distant relatives. In the dark, cold grasp of winter, relationships are strained to the breaking point, and the Ice Spirits play a deadly game with Jenny and Kyle's lives as the prize.
Guest Story - You Know What Hunts You - By Jay Lake AKA jaylake
Beatty is a human who found and escaped the Dark Towns. Except the Dark Towns never really let anybody go. When a messenger comes from Triune Town with a request, Beatty discovers something important: he still has a choice.
Have you ever looked over the edge and seen something looking back at you?
