By the time he’s finished with after-school rehearsals and the private lessons he teaches to make ends meet, he’s too exhausted to think about dating or even hanging out with friends.

Floyd Burland tends bar at Dudebaker’s, one of the city’s hottest nightspots. He’s something of a serial dater, but nowhere near as bad as his boss, club owner Shawn Frost.

Handsome, outgoing, and just Floyd’s type, Gavin is there to talk with Shawn about a singing gig.
‘His Dream Lover’ by Lee Brazil
Through the gates of the sun lies the land of dreams, and beyond that…the realm of the lost.
In a private hospital room, motionless and still beneath a sheet, lies Joseph Caldwell. His surgery has passed, to all intents and purposes, successfully. The doctors offer no explanation for why he hasn’t awakened from the medically induced coma. The stream of visitors trickles down to nothing, and still he lies in endless sleep. Nearly everyone has given up any hope for his recovery.
‘The Line’ by Angel Martinez
Rafael Schiller, vampire and sexual god without peer, believes himself the top of the food chain, until a bizarre creature feeding in an alley scares the deathless hell out of him.
Rafael Schiller’s had a long road and he’s forgotten the meaning of several human words along the way. He’s completely content treating his long string of one-off lovers as midnight snacks. Some nights still induce an odd, hollow ache, but he can just drown it in the next conquest. He lives without a care…until he encounters a bizarre creature feeding in an alley.
