  5. Neon

    By William King, in Fiction. 08/24/2017 (Updated: 10/08/2017)

    Neon.

    Neon (meaning new) – is the forth most abundant element in the universe, but rare on Earth, found at 1 part in 65,000. 
    It is an element which doesn’t like to react, because the outermost shell of electrons orbiting the nucleus is full, giving no incentive to swap with other elements. Produced through fractional distillation, the chill factor makes neon important. A high electric charge excites the neon and it glows as it returns to its neutral state.
    It’s inertness makes it long-lasting.

    Quote

    It's one thing to steal a car from a dark deserted street, quite another to steal a man's heart in front of his friends. 

    Thanks to Parker Owens for the quote.

  9. Moorpark Palms Letters 3. Moorpark Palms

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 08/07/2017 (Updated: 08/25/2017)

    These are the original, annual, New Year's letters that I sent to my friends from 1993 to 2001.  That was from two years after I moved into the building to a year-and-a-half after I left.

     

    As mentioned, the letters were the basis for the book, and they often overlap the same material.  But they cover more time and more characters, and are sometimes funnier because they're more compressed and somewhat more rude.
