Two strangers meet in Las Vegas to learn the truth about their grandparents and discover what it means to fall in love at first sight in Memorial Meeting by Aline de Chevigny.
In Flyover by Jefferson Dane, Sgt. Kyle Kleinmann hospitalized from his wounds in the Afghanistan mountains tells a story of the eerie events surrounding his mission on the front. Insurgents, strange lights in the sky and supernatural beings weave in and out of his frightening tale like nightmarish cobwebs. Nothing is quite what it seems.

For the Boys by J.M. Snyder takes us to the Korean Conflict. Falling in love was the last thing Army pilot Carl Prosser expected to do while stationed in Korea. But he meets Tommy who's touring with the USO and does just that. An exchange of letters and a crushed hope of a return visit by the USO troupe motivates Prosser to devise an elaborate plan to see his lover one last time before the war separates them permanently.
