  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 28 Number 3, Autumn 2016

Present creative people with an unusual topic and see what strange interpretations emerge. Our current theme, “The Neat Lady and the Colonel’s Overalls,” elicited a wide range of reactions, from sweet and touching to sheer horror. Unexpected poignancy emerged in V. J. Hamilton’s “Tidy Dry Clean and Mend.” Gary R. Hoffman took a humorous turn, in “The Great Gaslight Beer War.” “The Colonel’s Last Stand,” by Charles Chapman, delved into the supernatural. One piece, “Brilliance and the Beast,” by Leslie Lewinter-Suskind, will leave the reader speechless and quaking at the end of the story. End of story!
