A Sounding of Time

by Brendon Michael

A Sounding of Time follows a group of friends on a strange and exceptional journey, over highways and seas and maybe even through time itself.

Jeanie and Walker meet one another on the road, when they each happen to have everything they own packed up and in tow. They have left their jobs and lives behind, searching for something ill-defined but very tangible to people like them. Immediately they realize they share a past. But only one of them realizes how deep that past goes. And there are others, too. Like them. People drawn together by some inherent magnetism of the world around them. Some force of life. And, more importantly, by some pact they had made a very, very long time ago. A pact to return and fulfill their destiny. Their only problem is remembering it.



Masterminders

by Tara Basi

From the cauldron of a small Catholic primary school playground on the weather-beaten Small Island, Bobby and Terry set about tackling the world’s most intractable problems: Global Warming, Women’s Troubles, Politics, Revolution, War and more. Beset by bullies, nuns and hormones, our duo and the occasional apprentice relentlessly pursue knowledge and truth with only logic, the odd exploding gerbil experiment and chocolate to protect them from the terrors of the playground.

The story is told from Terry’s often confused perspective as he plays Alan Davies to Bobby’s Stephen Fry. The boys’ philosophical explorations of the human condition lead them to riches beyond understanding, poverty so crushing that a single wine gum is out of reach, the heights of power and the helplessness of unrequited infatuation – all under the reign of the Power Three, the playground’s bully trio of Tony, George and, Terry’s impossible love interest, Madge.

Terry and Bobby are aided in their quests by the Small Island’s residents, including the disgraced ex-world-sheep-throwing champion Mr McStrumpy; Mr McTater, the island’s only butcher who is obsessed with perfecting the ultimate seagull sausage; bookshop owner, would-be author and faux-paedophile Mr Dicklightly; the crazed whirling dervish that is Dimple; and the ever-present Mr Singh, owner of the Small Island’s post office cum Sweet and Chips Emporium with Tent Café. Meanwhile, Terry’s dad is missing and his penniless mum is endlessly distracted by a bitter custody battle while holding down three jobs; and Bobby’s dad is very sick.

Resilient as double-gusseted underpants, the pair battle through the four seasons of the school year to discover the eternal truths of life, death, friendship and the simple blessings of tofu-free chips.

Masterminders was shortlisted for the Novel Prize.

Mother’s Day

by Steve Yarosh

She shook her head and kept pushing at the edge of the hole. “It’s not your fault,” she whispered, and I could see the tip of the lead starting to come out.

It’s Mother’s Day and a young boy is being punished for not doing well in school. His frustrated mother is at her wits end. Nothing seems to work. And then, just as things begin to unravel completely – she makes a choice that changes everything . . . .

Steve Yarosh is an Oregon-based writer, artist and trial attorney. He is a former federal prosecutor and was a lead trial attorney in the Waco, Texas case involving David Koresh and the Branch Davidians. Prior to his law career, Steve worked as a magazine writer, sports editor and newspaper photographer. He also served 7 years active duty in the U.S. Navy, including 3 years aboard the Battleship U.S.S. New Jersey (BB-62) and one year with the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Beirut, Lebanon.

Steve has recently completed a collection of coming-of-age short stories based on his childhood years in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and Sydney, Australia. Critics and fellow writers have compared his stories to Stand By Me, Catcher in the Rye and even The Andy Griffith Show. They are strong, dialogue-driven tales focusing on universal themes that evoke a feeling in even the crustiest of readers. Steve’s writing style is confident and original. He dispenses with lengthy narratives and unnecessary descriptions, choosing instead to thrust directly into the heart of things with a rapid succession of vivid scenes that build to a final act that isn’t always what you expect. His characterization is equally unique. Adults in his stories are multilayered and in simmering conflict with themselves and others. The young central character senses this as he strives to navigate through the uncertain world around him.

Steve lives on the banks of the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, with his 10 year son and his attorney wife. To contact Steve, send an email to [email protected]
