Featured Story:
MOUNTAIN GOD
Aran sat on a red torii that jutted high at the top of a mountain with a rising sea, fingers flexing on painted wood and legs dangling, feet pointed to a great beyond. Waters approached in gentle waves—like a beach yet with no shore, splashing silently against the pillar bases, lacquered gold from a setting sun.

The entire universe stretched to this single point, where crystal-blue skies met gold. And Aran was alone.
