For killing his husband, Rook is sent to B-226—an alien planet populated by deadly creatures, where the average life expectancy for a prisoner is three weeks. Rook is relieved by the sentence—all he wants is to die and rejoin his husband.
Upon arrival on B-226, Rook is partnered with Stevie, who has beaten the odds and survived for several months. Rook is drawn to Stevie in a way he didn't expect in the aftermath of losing his husband. Before Rook can untangle the mess of his emotions, the already deadly situation on B-226 worsens, plunging Rook and Stevie into an even more desperate struggle to survive.
"It’s a slow build but well worth it while Rook deals with his own grief and issues. A wonderful book from a great author."
Anthony was a painter until he lost the ability to see colour. Worse than colour blindness, the edges of objects and people blur together, making it almost impossible for Anthony to interact with anyone or anything. After retreating from the world for decades, he sees a glimpse of yellow that leads him to a musician, Teague.
At first Anthony is frightened and overwhelmed by the colour, but he can’t stay away from Teague for long. He finds the courage to confront Teague and explain his unusual problem and what he believes Teague’s role is in helping him. To Anthony’s relief, Teague believes him. Very quickly, they both suspect that getting the colours back is more important to Anthony than his relationship with Teague.
If Anthony pushes too hard, he’ll lose Teague, and possibly the colours, forever.
"This is one of the most wonderful short stories I've read in a long time. It's sensual, beautiful, and emotional without being overdone."
