  Mushtaq Bilal The Girl with the Book
 

This love story cum mystery is set in present day Pakistan and explores the extent to which people, especially women, have their life choices circumscribed by religious and cultural indoctrination.

  Nicholas Birns Between the Lindens
 

The story was inspired by a story I heard on a bus in China, about a boy who had left his homeland during a time of persecution and who always felt in the shadow of his remarkable father. It raises questions of national and personal identity, and whether there is a chance to treat each other, and the planet itself, differently.

  Lyn Jacobs Last Orders
 

This story considers distance, remoteness and alienation in geographic and psychological terms. I hope the protagonist surfs to a safer shore.

  Ron Singer IBS Rides the Internet (A Fictional Memoir)
 

In this fictional memoir the mistaken funeral episode really took place, and it made me think a lot about my father's family. Then, thinking about my Peace Corps days in the 1960s, I remembered how many of my co-volunteers had died. I hope this story captures the spirit of those times, which combined idealism and serious work with silliness.
