Deny the Father

by M. Duda

In three stories, M. Duda uses supernatural and science fiction elements to tell a larger tale about humanity.

The first story in his collection, “A Sarjeta” follows an impoverished Portuguese with one simple dream. He wants to taste meat. Although Leandro also has larger goals of becoming a famous artist, his hunger and poverty are always at the front of his mind. When he forms a relationship with the wrong person, Leandro will realize that incredible evil exists just across the street.

The middle story, “Good-bye, Sweet Mercury” takes a turn away from the horrific and focuses on a father’s love for his daughter. In this short, simple tale, the father stands at a precipice in his life. He doesn’t want to leave his little girl and will have to make a big decision about his future.

The last story, “Yesterday Never, Tomorrow and Today,” furthers M. Duda’s theme of metamorphosis and introduces an indentured farmer who is trying to make up for his criminal past. In a future civilization, the farmer faces harsh truths about himself.

Through these glimpses into different worlds, M. Duda tells three intricate, compelling tales of transformation.

Her Letter

by Jacie Middlemann

Just days before Christmas, after returning from an out of town trip Luke Sutherlin found the last thing he would have ever expected. Her letter.

Luke knew he would only ever have to read it once. Each word was now seared into his memory. He knew too it wasn’t something she had done easily. Her every written word tells him that.

He knows he’d made some bad choices and even worse decisions. Then he hadn’t paid attention when she saw what he didn’t. Or didn’t want to. Those things had changed him. He had never meant to take anything for granted. But he had. Worse, he was slowly becoming someone he didn’t recognize. He didn’t see itâ?¦but his wife had.

It doesn’t take him long to realize how empty the house is without her. Little things like her footsteps on the stairs, the way she hummed when she made dinner, all those things suddenly missing forced him to look beyond only himself. There was so much he hadn’t seen before. But he does now.

As Christmas draws closer, Luke knows one thing is clearer to him than it has ever been before. Nothing is more important than his wife. His family. With her letter emblazoned in his memory he sets out to find the man he’d once beenâ?¦the one his wife wanted back.
