Control Bird Alt Delete by Alexandria Peary

Control + Alt + Delete has become a mantra for those who have PC issues and need to restart their computers; this hot button command does the trick.

NEWS FROM THE WAR, THE TREES CATCH FIRE
by Michael Salcman

July 10, 2015

The annual fireworks display’s gone wrong.
Rockets launched in seeming safety from a barge

Antigone, 2015, directed by Ivo van Hove, Seen at Théâtre de la Ville, Paris, Fr

LOVE YOU TO A PULP
BY C.S. DeWILDT

Review by Hector Duarte Jr.

June 25, 2015

Love You To a Pulp by C.S. DeWildt

Neil Chambers is not Sam Spade. This isn’t a whiskey swilling, cigarette rolling private dick. In fact, “Neil Chambers couldn’t help it. It was one of those dirty little habits that had followed him his entire life.” The dirty little habit is huffing glue... read more >
