In Love and Warcraft
By Medhuri Shekar
Evie Malone — a gamer girl and confirmed virgin — commands a top-ranked World of Warcraft guild with Ryan, her online boyfriend, and writes love letters on commission for her less articulate peers. She and Kitty, her quirky, sex-addled roommate, are comfortable with their lives, but when Evie meets a totally cute, totally offline boy, Raul, she begins to question everything that’s important to her. Love is like Warcraft, after all: its success lies in strategy and sticking to the game plan. But Raul hates WoW and enjoys physical intimacy. Is Evie ready to take that next step? Is she able? This is uncharted territory and no amount of gaming expertise or logistics can help her now.
The light fantastic or in the wood
By David Blakely
"The Light Fantastic" shows us seven denizens of the West End Taproom, each with their sorrows, each with their dreams, with nowhere to go. One of the regulars has stopped showing up and has left instructions what to do. But three strangers, and a priest, walk into the bar and the rest of the evening could be one big joke. Or not.
