Good Vibrations

By CB Barrie

This story parodies the illogical and wholly unreasonable aspects of the way the law works. How its quest for 'justice' often leads to injustice, and how its rigid and inflexible approach to 'due process' makes a mockery of fairness, and hands down bizarre judgements. The insistence that everything must be resolved in court under the public gaze, creates ridiculous situations that do nothing to dignify the rightness of the justice system. On the contrary, it shames it. Just such a story is that of Edmund Lincoln. It's the fourth time ram raiders have wrecked Edmund Lincoln's nationally famous audio and HI-Fi business, and he's facing ruin. Exorbitant and restricted insurance, and the totally inept police investigations, mean he has little chance of recovering anything lost or receiving adequate recompense. After the fourth break in his senior manager Mark Stepleford, painfully restores the business but another disaster strikes when a psychotic customer is thought to be shoplifting. He is challenged and draws a knife to fend off the shop staff. Mark, realising the man is completely out of control, stabs him with a needle test probe. The man is dead on arrival at the hospital. Mark and the two sales staff are arrested on charges of manslaughter. But notwithstanding the Crown Prosecution's insistence on due process, the jury refuses to convict. For a while life and business return to normal but then they are notified that their rather limited insurance is being withdrawn. It means that the whole trading operation is now severely compromised. To protect the shop in the absence of insurance Mark designs a hyper–powerful sonic system that creates a deep sense of fear in intruders. He adds an extremely powerful low frequency sound field that causes the intruder real physical distress. Just after Christmas, during the shop's week long shutdown, they are called by the police. The shop has been hit. They are horrified to learn that on inspection the police have found five dead bodies in the shop – all of them having suffered agonising deaths. Edmund Lincoln is arrested for murder. He is outraged – thus begins his fight against the CPS and the whole apparatus of the legal process. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: I trained first in applied physics (BSc) followed later by post-graduate studies in economic & industrial history (MPhil) business studies (DipBA) and later a PhD in metrology. Following a successful career in strategic research/technology and administration, I began to parallel academic authorship with writing popular science and biographical articles for various technical and innovation magazines. Apart from a fascination with inventors, inventions and new technologies I also enjoy writing 'off the beaten track' fiction, particularly when it leaves the reader slightly breathless. My publication record covers 11 Books (academic, fiction and humour) under various names and pseudonyms along with 68 research papers and umpteen popular science and innovation articles.

Where Have You Been?

By Amit Siovitz

Johnny is just a regular guy discharged after Iraq. He wants what every guy wants; a pretty girl, a nicer car, some money, and enough Heroin to stave that itch in the back of his head. That last thing may not be what EVERY guy wants, but it's all the same, isn't it? You just try to get through a day in his shoes. A day that starts with aggravated assault, goes on fixing some guy's toilet, to murder. "Milaowic, John, Corporal, serial number… ahhh… Not sure if I have one." Johnny's head has just not been the same since coming back home; things are blurry. Nothing seems to be going right; his girlfriend, Jenny, is about to leave him, his friends become his enemies, or they decide to quit using Heroin and abandon him. Just trying to squeeze a normal day out of this life becomes his biggest challenge, and being a murder suspect isn't helping either. Ask not what your country can do for you, guys, as what the hell you're going to do when your country is done with you. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: During his university education in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, Amit Siovitz took part in diverse activities relating to literary consumption and creativity. Nearing graduation as a bachelor of English and American studies, he took part not only in creative writing groups, but also in writing and publishing seminars. After helping to found a literary magazine in Freiburg, Amit Siovitz gathered courage to submit his own work, and try to get it published. As an immigrant into Germany, Amit's writing explores feelings of disorientation, displacement, and dealing with an everyday life that grinds rather than thrills.

Mes princesses favorites

By Stéphane Carrion

Montreal: Editions Dédicaces. Paperback. New. Pour le bonheur de toute la famille, cette oeuvre accueille trois histoires candides. Leurs fonds, qui se dessinent à travers les mots de chacune d'elle, poursuivent une quête d'éducation et de moralité qui veulent accompagner l'enfant dans le plaisir qu'offre la lecture. Cette perspective se réalise grâce à une écriture qui désapprouve toute turpitude et qui bannit l'idée d'intransigeance. De plus, dans ce livre au vocabulaire adouci pour les plus jeunes, princes, princesses et personnages imaginaires viennent chercher leur sensibilité. Un style sombre, mais touchant vient en aide à l'auteur qui veut vivre ses écrits avec les autres.
