Slip Inside This House

by Akhil Srivatsan

Slip Inside This House, this book is a year in the life of five friends, each of whom spend a chunk of their time living in an apartment in the middle of Mumbai’s startup world.

Benji is a drug-addicted writer, and music reviewer and head editor of Stranger Fiction, an arts and culture magazine. Professional stagnation and addiction to a mystery drug, which he takes in small white bottles, or รข??doses’, lead to his unraveling.

Kanika, a hotshot startup advisor, appears to join him in his spiral when she is introduced to dosing, and quickly develops a stubborn drug habit of her own.

Ashwin is a middle-manager in GrowlMonkey, Mumbai’s runaway startup success story. From time to time, he fantasises about escaping his life to something more interesting. After meeting Arti at his clubhouse, he starts to fall for her.

Sen quits his job at a small but successful startup, Rizato, to start his own business, QuicKonnect. While things go swimmingly at first, he soon runs into the challenges of running a fledgling business while struggling to keep the rest of his life on track.

Sania is a successful journalist who has started to lose interest in her job. To add to that, the pressures that come with approaching thirty are starting to mount. As the startup world rises around her, she wonders if it might offer her a better path forward.

Will Benji get his life back together? Will Kanika escape her addiction? Will Ashwin find what he seems to be missing in his life? Will Sen find his feet? And will Sania find a path that’s to her liking?

Gull Soup

by Lynne Carol Austin

Mandy takes up residence in a cabin on Lake Michigan to sort out an unfulfilled life. She desires to make changes, and hopes to write while she stays for the month of October. While there, she finds twelve dead gulls floating on the water in front of her cabin. She makes it her mission to find the cause of their death and is suddenly aware of how often the number twelve comes through in our lives; twelve jurors, twelve knights of the Round Table, twelve disciples. It strikes her that this number may have universal importance and she wonders about its significance to her. An almost-tragedy leads her to communicate with her dead mother, and meet Jackson and his dog, who encourage her to open her heart. While lurking in the shadows is a psychopath who causes destruction on the shores of the big lake, pushing Mandy toward danger.
