As a sweet little old couple reaches the end of their twilight years in a rest home, they spend time with a very unusual resident. Very unusual.
Purr Like an Egyptian by Rachael Dickzen
Mia James really needs a job over Spring Break, and Cleopatra’s palace seems like a great solution. It’s full of pampered kitties and seems like the perfect mix of work and play to the college student.
Sure the owner is a little strange…but women with tons of cats often act a little like their pets…right?
Christian Goldbach and His Conjectures by Andrew Paul Grell
There’s nothing like an unsolvable conundrum to make an academic hop out of bed in the morning with a grin on his face. In some, rare cases, it’s enough to make him get a boat and head out to sea in an effort to fully focus on the problem. But what happens when the poor shmuck actually solves the unsolvable?
How You Remind
Me by Ronel Janse van Vuuren

Voyage of the Fortunate Seven by Shawn Klimek
Every year the gods and goddess take a voyage to bring good luck and prosperity to their people. There are years where their voyage is bright and merry and the sea as smooth as glass.
Needless to say, this story is about one of the other years.

Game Night by
It’s not easy watching over a retirement home for the diminished gods and goddesses of yore…but if you are going to do hire someone for the job, choosing a seraphim with a flaming sword isn’t a bad idea.
Mazes and Wine by Vanessa Wells
Being caught in a labyrinthine basement with no way out is bad enough, adding a minotaur to the equation is just a recipe for the Monday from Hades. Even by Ariadne’s standards, it all adds up to a bad day at the office.
Down by Marshall J. Moore
Private investigator Althea Stagg is having a rough week. When her beloved bike breaks down outside of Vulcan Motors, she thinks that her luck might just be turning around.

Asterion the Minotaur might look like he’s as dumb as an ox, but don’t let anyone feed you any b.s….he’s as sharp as the horns on his bovine head. You’d be better off tying a steak to your neck and trying to get past the Nemean lion than to try and put something past him.
King Minos finds that out the hard way.
Been trying to do blurbs but just ain’t good at it. Reread the stories. Here is what I got but don’t know if I like them.
Hotel Quetzalcoatl by E. E. King
Come visit Guanajauato, City of Vampires. An ancient city, beautiful as it is mysterious. Visit the city’s most famous attraction the Mummy Museum founded in 1870.
Stay at the Hotel Quetzalocatl with its beautiful terraced gardens, healthy dining and yoga style living. You might even meet a god or two.
A fascinating city to be sure, but two rules of caution avoid accidents and falling boulder, and never, ever, ask for directions if you get lost.

Hermes has a lot of areas of influence as a God. He is a messenger to Olympus. He guides the dead to Hades. He even moonlights as the God of thieves for Circe’s sake! But there are certain…three-headed problems that even a god with his unique abilities has difficulty with.
