Boskeopolis Stories by J. J. W. Mezun

Rhymin' & Stealin'

Boskeopolis is an obscure city-state in the Verdazul archipelago in Orange Ocean–or, as other countries call it, the Pacific Ocean. It’s notable for its persistent violation o’ the laws o’ physics, biology, & economics—though, to be fair, real life doesn’t obey that last 1, either. As such, any inconsistencies within these stories should be blamed on glitches, for I’m ’fraid . . .

FLESH PHANTOMS

Interesting collection of short stories

By Linda Schoales, editor

Feb 19, 2009: “Flesh Phantoms” is a collection of short stories written by one author. Some of them are very short, more like story fragments or the author’s thoughts, while others are a more conventional length. They’re all interesting, sometimes bordering on brilliant.
