This week’s Challenge Question:
In celebration of JC Hutchins’ recent book release (Personal Effects: Dark Art) — which is a delightfully physical book with physical artifacts — here is the digital question: games, gatherings, music, news, books, bills, phone books, mail, movies, television, photographs: we are increasingly living in a non-physical world. What will the ultimate expression of this be? Or will we rebel, and return to physical things because they are “real”?

A story revealing layers both mundane and supernatural in the life of Monson Grey, sole survivor of the attack on Barity Bridge.
  • Promo: Guardians — An experiment in urban fantasy from Kimi Alexandre, host of Tale Chasing. This has just started, and promises to be quite a ride!
