In This Issue: March 2013

There’s something about March in the northern hemisphere.  Something bleak, something hopeful, something decidedly cold and warm, wet and dry, all at once.

To give a fictional face to that contradiction, I’ve chosen Dave Tallerman’s “For Life,” a tale of a man coping with grief and a grieving father, and Alisa Alering’s “Keith Crust’s Lucky Number,” a quirky story in which a numbers-obsessed guitarist finds more than he bargained for at the local pawn shop.

For our Classic Flash, we reach back to Alice Dunbar-Nelson for a lovely melodramatic bit of Victoriana called “Violets.”

Might be appropriate for Spring/Easter, though it is somewhat gloomy.
