Reprint: This novella was originally published in the Doms of Dark Haven anthology. With an empty nest and divorce in hand, Rona decides it's time to explore the fantasies that nourished her through a long, tedious marriage to a man whose idea of outrageous sex was leaving the lights on. At the top of her fantasy list is touring Dark Haven, the BDSM club, but she isn't prepared for the effect of a powerful Dom. When Master Simon takes control and introduces her to toys and sensations she's never felt before, she realizes he could fulfil every fantasy on her list all by himself. But she's vowed to never get trapped in a relationship again. One of the most popular Doms in Dark Haven, Master Simon has had his fill of eager, shallow, young subs. Rona is older, intelligent, independent...and sweetly submissive. After an evening of intense pleasure and despite her obvious attraction, she refuses to see him again. He needs a way to change her mind. She's not the first sub he's taken on a journey of exploration, but he's beginning to think she might be the last.

As this sequel to the author's SPIDER SONG opens, Joanna Bryce and Dina Miller are struggling to create a harmonious life together. And then the process becomes further complicated by murder-Sweet Birch Lodge seems the perfect place to wait out the Spring Blizzard of 98: old; rustic; creepy creaky; home to a bloody ghost or two, no doubt. Or so the weekend guests at the Ashton Arboretum believe, as they prepare for a night of stormy mayhem. In the morning, when the sleep-deprived visitors assemble in the dining room, it gradually becomes apparent that an unfortunate one of their number is absent. Permanently so. Joanna, naturalist at the arboretum, once again finds herself drawn into the world of murder. Although at first not much involved, additional crimes alter that situation drastically. In the end, she and Dina must combat an unknown killer in a desperate effort to rescue someone they love. Exhausted, with nerves stretched thin and anger at the firing point, they also must rescue their failing relationship. Or let it go. Before the story ends, more than one will have sung the Sad Woman Blues.

Ralf is a software prodigy. He works in the US government office that updates the software in the population's boosts—networked supercomputers contained in a chip implanted within the brains of 99 percent of the world's population. Invented by Chinese researchers in 2032, the boost is credited with leading humanity to its most significant cognitive leap since the discovery of fire. Days before a national upgrade, Ralf notices that the update includes an open surveillance gate—meaning that Americans, who had negotiated high levels of privacy with the Chinese manufacturers, will now be subjected to the invasive Chinese standard. Ralf attempts to hack the boost, but is caught by agents working for Washington's preeminent lobbyist. His boost is ripped from his head, and Ralf barely escapes with his life. Pursued by the lobbyist's mercenary cadre, Ralf flees to the US–Mexico border, where there are others like him—"wild" humans on the fringes of society, unenhanced by technology. It's a frightening and backward world controlled by powerful drug lords. Ralf's only hope is to somehow work with these wild bosses of the analog world—in hopes of winning back freedom in the digital one.

Life as One of the Apostles
Author: Mackenzie Mulligan
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
When we read the Bible as a parable, as a series of object lessons told merely to prove a point, we miss something. When we treat the people within the Bible as mere characters in a story, we lose something incredibly important. Object lessons are clean and simple. People, on the other hand, are messy and complicated. When we look at the life of Simon Peter, we see one of the messiest people in the entire New Testament. Peter walked on water and sank into the waves. He proclaimed who Jesus was and completely missed the point. He pledged his undying devotion to Christ, and even drew a sword in defense of his Lord, and then he abandoned Jesus and denied him three times. Peter is also the rock on which Christ would build his church--the same church of which Paul says we are a part. So come. Walk with Peter. Fish with him. Follow a strange rabbi, though it might cost you everything. Walk on water, though you might sink. Go to Jerusalem, though death awaits you. Stand with Peter as God uses him to build his church, and watch that church grow.
