The cosmos
Seen from outside
Unimaginable heat
Unthinkably cold

Number 9

by Rebecca Feiner

The back street building is all decayed grandeur. A place the sun no longer reaches.
Number 9 was once a grand private house. Later it became an inn, kept by Charlie Swinson. Samuel Johnson would drink there, with his mate Joshua Reynolds. In 1764 they elevated their late night sessions into something more distinguished by referring to Number 9 as “The Club”.

Employee of the Month

by Andrew Shoben

I grew up in South London, and like many teenagers, I got a job in the local Tesco supermarket. For the first few months there, I was a Trolley Boy, collecting the metal trollies that piled up in the car park, where shoppers left them after unloading.

Search-Engine Sex

by Isobel Poltroon

I go out on Valentine’s Day to buy my cleaning lady a plastic bucket with a filter on top to squeeze out the mop. She’s worn out the old one, we’ve been together so long.

The Unknown Niggle

by Simeon Carr – Minns

Around the end of August 2001, we were deployed on an Operation called ‘Op Bessemer’to Macedonia as part of a NATO force to intervene in a civil war between Albanian insurgents and the Macedonian government and then to oversee an arms amnesty as part of something drawn up called the ‘Ohrid Agreement’.
Under the terms of the Ohrid Agreement, the Macedonian government agreed to devolve greater political power and cultural recognition to the Albanian minority. The Albanian side agreed to abandon separatist demands and to fully recognise all Macedonian institutions.
Yep, it was fucking boring. Positive but boring.
