Samurai: Cherry Blossoms Fall

by Alex Ness

Samurai commonly describes a warrior in Japan who serves a lord, using combat skills and living by the code of Bushidō. But not everyone followed the code so directly, nor was every samurai so bold and courageous. So while the truth is somewhere between the idealized icon of fidelity and bravery, and bullies with swords, this work features the samurai who lived by their code. Through short story, poems, and quotes, this work is meant to evoke, however briefly, life from the viewpoint of samurai.

Selective Service

An Evening with the Dymond Sisters

by H. A. Ferdinand

“You’ve heard of the Marx Brothers, of course. Well you’re going to be Britain’s answer to the Marx Brothers (except that you’re not male, Jewish or actually related). But what they do, you could do even better.”

It’s the summer of 1933 and four English college girls, who have formed their own cabaret act and who should have known better, are about to release their puerile humour on the genteel German spa town of Baden-Baden. But is their audience ready for this kind of unscripted mayhem and, anyhow, can they trust each other not to screw up? The Dymond Sisters mean well but unfortunately everything they touch turns to farce.

Another very British comedy from the author of Mrs Tempest’s Marriage Bureau.
