Light Of Tina Dark Fantasy Horror from the Author: Richard Stooker. Twenty-one years later, Paul Templeton still did not know whether in his old dream he rapes and murders his sister. The rapist killer escapes. Nightmares torture Paul. If he didn't kill Tina, how can he witness it, dreaming he sees it happen in a mirror? Now a beautiful young woman moves into the neighbor, reminding Paul of Tina? Is the killer after her too? Though Paul never touched Tina in an unbrotherly way, he loves her with an unbrotherly love. During her life, and for the twenty-one years since her grisly death. Now a Thai businessman and his beautiful daughter Khamnah move into Paul's neighborhood. Khamnah reminds Paul so much of Tina it hurts him. She too shines with the light of The World Behind. The transcendant spiritual universe where Tina lives on. The gleaming light of Khamnah's personality and heart help Paul to ignore the skeptical gibes of the psychiatrist Jack Harrison. But he can't forget the threat of the slasher rapist the police are looking for. Ten women in the past five months. M.O. similar to Tina's killer twenty-one years ago. Paul fears for Khamnah's life. He dreads the possibility of history repeating itself. That night he dreams again, but he does not see Tina's face in the mirror. Instead, Khamnah sits brushing her hair -- until the killer enters. This short story is NOT for you if you: 1. Freak out at references to "deviant" sexuality. 2. Can not handle a description of nongratuitous rape and murder. 3. Are looking for explicit erotica to feed your own deviant fantasies. 4. Don't wish to consider the borderlines between fantasy and reality, emotional obsession and psychic powers. 5. Prefer stories about 'normal' people. (Though, at a time when 50 Shades of Grey is outselling Harry Potter in England, I for one wonder who really is normal.) Light of Tina is a short story I think of as horror, but others might use such terms as dark fantasy, paranormal, or urban fantasy.

On A Wave from the Author: Thad Ziolkowski. In this prizewinning poet's wry and exhilarating coming-of-age story, Thad Ziolkowski's On a Wave poignantly looks back at adolescence in a memoir of his surfing years. As a disenchanted, unemployed English professor, Thad decides one day to sneak away from his temp job in Manhattan and catch a wave off a dingy Queens shoreline. In the meager cold waves, he contemplates how he could have possibly become a semidepressed, chain-smoking, aimless man when for a few shining years of his boyhood, he was invincible. His lapsed love affair with the ocean begins amid the late-sixties counterculture in coastal Florida. After his parents' divorce, nine-year-old Thad escapes from his difficult family -- notably a new brooding and explosive stepfather -- by heading for the thrilling, uncharted waters of the local beach. In the embrace of the surf, he is able to stay offshore for years, until his life is upended once again, this time by a double tragedy that deposits him at a crossroads between a life in the waves and a life on land. Lyrical and disarmingly funny, On a Wave is a glorious portrait of youth that reminds readers of Tobias Wolff's This Boy's Life and Frank Conroy's Stop-Time.
