Superimposed Penguins
In sorting through a large lot of used books I inherited from a retired academic, I came across an odd case of overprinting which I think is worth sharing. The cover of the Penguin Classics edition of Anatole France, The Gods Will Have Blood (ISBN 014044352...

"Hell is other atoms": a microfiction
I think Joseph, Inès and Estelle are lovely names for atoms, but how do you tell which is which? By their choices and their history. However, even this set of facts is insufficient to fully determine them. They are condemned to quantum indeterminacy.  Josep...

Un quatrain (terrible)
The opening of " Visiting Westminster Abbey " by the inimitable (I dare you to try) Amanda McKittrick Ros : Holy Moses! Take a look! Flesh decayed in every nook! Some rare bits of brain lie here, Mortal loads of beef and beer.

Quatrain: about corn

A. Brilliant. Idea. 
Did your brother Joe graduate high school? Best friend Jane get a promotion? Send them some confetti to show you're celebrating too!   Include a custom message, and we'll ensure the confetti gets everywhere while they read.   sorry folks, this ships to destinations within the US only.
