Happy Valentines Day.

If you are feeling about this day as some of us do, perhaps these stories will be a welcome break from the usual barrage of hearts and flowers.

First up in Love is a Masterpiece by Chris Kelworth. Mr. Kelworth lives in Hamilton, Ontario. He has been writing science fiction and fantasy stories with increasing diligence for the past twenty-five years, and is a graduate of the Odyssey, Taos Toolbox, and Young Gunns workshops. He works in Burlington as a computer software developer under an assumed name. You can find his Author blog at Our reader is Garnet Psaltery.

Next is This Peculiar Way of Hers by Joel Arnold.  Mr.  Arnold is the author of the novel Northwoods Deep, as well as dozens of short stories. He lives in Minnesota in a house with a front porch. Nothing, however – at least as far as he knows – lives beneath it. Our reader is Travis I. Sivart, host of the Talk of the Tavern podcast.
