Time and Tide by Kana Smith

a time-traveler goes whaling

“What do you take with you if you know you’re going to time-travel? I’m betting ‘sports bra’ didn’t make your list, but you’d better believe it made mine. I knew what passed for underwear in the 19th century, and I knew I’d be clambering around ships for years. I wore the best sports bra I could buy, and hoped its . . .

And by Edward Picot

Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South, with all the important bits removed.

The house was full of packing-cases. Even the pretty lawn at the side was to pack up, stiffly and slowly, through the bare echoing November. The very robin that her father had so often made, with his own hands, more gorgeous than ever; amber and golden; here, at this bed of thyme, began to speak of carrots. The grand inarticulate . . .

TIME AND TIDE

Editor’s First Look – Time Travel Adventure

THE DARKENED CORNER

This Darkened Corner has some hidden light.

By Patrick Rochefort, author of From Winter's Ashes

Aug 8, 2016: The Good: Once it finds its feet, this story has some literary charm and chops to it. It certainly isn’t plot-driven, but it’s very good at inducting us into the mind of the protagonist, a very young man in Florida in the 1980’s as he wrestles with a growing awareness of girls and a growing awareness of the character flaws of his father.

The Bad: Some parts of it are rather overwritten, and I’m not sure if this author just despises [more . . .]
