Best-selling author Lolly Winston brought us "Only Some People," her story of a couple fantasizing about divorce, from the anthology Girls' Night Out. The prolific K. M. Soehnlein read an at-this-time-unpublished story proving, among other things, that romance is an impulse and not an identity. Ivory Madison, official murderess of the San Francisco film noir festival, told us about her attempt to assassinate Robert Pinsky, singing a Cole Porter number along the way. Taelur Kim delivered his story “Rock War,” illustrating why not to let a girl participate in your stone-throwing contest. Darrend Brown gave us his story “Another Eleven Days of Missed Connection” about a divorcing couple whose son is obsessed with the Titanic.
