Bang! You’re Dead! (Screw Senility)
Fiction > Humor > Love, Sex & Marriage
Author: Debra Salonen
Judy Banger is done apologizing for her name, her weight and her sexuality. She is sorry–really sorry–about Buddy Fusco–the dead guy in her bed, but she didn’t see that one coming…probably because she was a bit preoccupied the exact moment he kicked the proverbial bucket. Does that make her a bad person? Or is she simply someone who’s played by the rules too damn long and is fed up with where being good has gotten her.
She’s ready to be bad…or, at least, very naughty.

Humor & Satire
Author: Mark Cain
Hell is … well, hell, and Steve Minion is the guy who has to keep it all going with every devil and demon – and, as it turns out, not a few of its inmates – stacked against him.
His assistant, Orson Welles (yes, that Orson Welles) could no doubt manage such an enormous production far better than Steve, but he would thereby enjoy himself, which would break one of the fundamental rules of Hell – that nobody gets to enjoy themselves. Should you even feel a glimmer of hope, you know that within minutes all Hell will literally be breaking out all around you.
Then there is the gorgeous, almost saintly Flo, who, unlike any of the other inmates, is working in Hell by choice because she cannot bear the suffering and must help alleviate it, whatever the personal cost. Steve adores Flo, and maybe Flo rather likes him, too. But romance in Hell? Surely that could never be.
Nevertheless, when Hell’s Escalator looks like it has been sabotaged by subversive forces and Steve is called in to investigate the problem by Satan himself, maybe he can earn himself a little wriggle room.
Or maybe not.

Lark at first hoped it was a simple nightmare: If she closed her eyes, she would be back in the mahogany bed of her spacious boudoir at Eddington Hall, and all would be well. Her father, the earl of Roxburgh, would not be dead by his own hand, and she would not be in Marshalsea debtor’s prison.
Such was not to be. Ere the Marshalsea could do its worst, the earl of Grayshire intervened. Lark shivered, considering the mysterious stone-faced noble. He’d paid her bond while the rest of London turned an eye as blind as the one beneath his eye patch. But while his touch was electric and his gaze piercing, for what purpose had he bought her freedom? A plan including Cornwall, return to the world of the haute ton, and embroilment in a struggle against both England’s own Admiralty and the French. But even more perilous, the ex-sea captain might plunder her heart. No, this was not a dream. As Lark would soon learn, her dreams had never ended so well.
