The Merriest Month – May Submissions

The Merriest Month – May Submissions

May was Shakespeare‘s merriest month, at least literarily. We have found similar joy in what we’re publishing for you this May as well. Here’s what we have for you to peruse while “sitting in a pleasant shade” this month.


May Submissions


Feast on our May fiction. We’re pleased to publish an excerpt from Luke Bencie’s first novel, The Clandestine Consultant: Kings, Sheiks, Warlords, and Dictators,which was just published last month. It’s an exciting, fast-paced, true-to-life adventure of an “international consultant” who is in truth a spy, an assassin, and a dirty-deal maker of epic proportions. You won’t want to miss his story.

We are also introducing a short story by Katinka Smit, an Australian author. A dark, absorbing fantasy, it’s entitled “Silver Moons.”


Bonnie Amesquita returns to the Café with some new poetry. She’s gotten rave reviews from both Café members and baristas in the past, and we’re awfully happy to welcome her back.


Our monthly art exhibit features some extraordinarily beautiful works made of rare woods by Wally Berger.


As always, Jack will be delivering some awesome podcast installment you won’t want to miss! Stay tuned for podcast posts on Saturday mornings.
