I’ll share just a few highlights. In Sumiko Saulson’s story, Enclosures will give you pause the next time you think about coveting that which belongs to another. Reginald’s grandfather tried to warn his grandson, but when the old man died Reginald was ready to move into grandpa’s estate. Soon, he learns that things belonging to others aren’t always the way to happiness. Kate Jonez offers up Effigy, a bit like the genie in a bottle theory.

Chris Pearce gives us Tragedy Park, where Finn and his friends decide to sneak on a closed ride they get more than they hoped for.
