This anthology is a compilation of stories featuring the talent of people associated with Parsec, a Pittsburgh-based science fiction literary organization. The publication date coincides with the local science fiction conference, Confluence, which is a program under the Parsec inc. 501(c)(3) organization.

Once again, we are lucky enough to have a short story by Wen Spencer. Her story will strike a chord with anyone who has restored a house. See Wen’s bio for a peek into this story’s origins.

Also included in this volume is the third place winner from the Parsec Short Story Contest, “Metal and Sweat”.

In this issue we have two takes on the devil, a disturbing look at one possible future for our legal system, an entertaining supposition on why the Red Sox finally won the World Series, and an ironic look at the future of warfare hosted by Windows. We have a dark trip through the mind of someone with multiple personalities, a budding writer willing to do anything to succeed, and a peek into a career move in a world with no babies.

We have a burning baseball, a zombie in a business suit, a killer library, and a novel way to strip lead paint. We also have a lonely computer, long trips gone bad and time dilation. Oh, and don’t forget the ghost dyke ship!
