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 . . .

MAYAN CALENDAR GIRLS

Interesting way to read a story

As a teacher that works with students with Asperger’s Syndrome, I find this story very interesting.
