Scandalously accused of murder in his hometown, Godren is compelled to flee for his innocent life, only to take up crime for survival on the streets. He knew he would have to adapt - but he never... More > meant to adapt so well. Too late, he learns he has woven a reputation into the interests of corrupt professionals - namely Mastodon, the crime queen of the city.

But bounty hunters are becoming increasingly reckless in character, unbound by the particulars of the law, and realizing their capacity to grapple with her. Due to their evolving nerve, Mastodon has put a price on their own heads.

Will there prove to be no honor in survival? Or does fate work in mysterious ways, and do the forsaken still shelter secret ambitions?< Less

THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS NOT WITH A BANG BUT A RERUN... What if the apocalypse had come and gone and no one noticed? What if the human race were already extinct but no one bothered to tell it?... More > What if our reality were just a program to entertain and feed those who've been here since before time began?

Every year, right before Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, there is a cultural war in certain Jewish neighborhoods over a ceremony called Kapporos, in which a chicken is slaughtered just before the... More > holy day. The animal rights people show up claiming, “Meat is murder!” while the Orthodox and Hasidic Jews who practice this ceremony accuse the activists of antisemitism and violating their freedom of religion. Epithets fly and confrontations occur across the barricades, but nobody is really listening to each other. Rabbi Gershom seeks to build a bridge of understanding between these two warring camps. On the one hand, he opposes using live chickens as Kapporos, and, like many other religious Jews before him, advocates giving money to charity instead. But on the other hand, he is himself a Hasid who understands and believes in the kabbalistic principle of "raising holy sparks" so central to the ceremony. In fact, he says, it is that very mysticism that has led him not to use chickens for the ritual.< Less
