In addition to myself, the issue features stories and poetry from Bruce Boston, Wayne Carey, C.J. Carter-Stephenson, Jeffery Scott Sims, Francis W. Alexander, Robert P. Hansen, Kurt MacPhearson, and David C. Kopaska-Merkel.
Here's how it begins:
Sergius rubbed his chin as he read the placard on the exterior of the Roma Locomotive Terminus. It was blatant but effective.
“Do You Have a Hot Tip?
“CHRIST-STOPPERS offers a reward for information leading to the arrest and execution of ANY CHRISTIAN
“30 pieces of silver!
“You will remain anonymous.
“Telephone today I-DCCC-DLV-MCCXII”

As he rubbed his chin, he realized he needed a shave. “Damn, it is a long train ride from Mediolanum,” he thought.
He snapped his fingers as he got into the taxi. “The Coliseum Plaza, and quickly.”
