"Wow...incredibly diverse publication! Cutting edge shorts, poetry and lyrics!!! That's a first. Witty, edgy and off the beaten path. Thanks for the great read." -Sunnymae


Volume 1 Andromeda features some truly fine writers. "Pests" by S.M.C. Wamsteker is a menacing tale of mushrooms. And Ted Chiles thrills with his Trinity of Flash fiction. Singer-songwriters charm us with songs like "Desiree" by Kim Michalowski, "Santa Fe" by Dennis Russell, and "Lightning" by Bryan Titus.


But the poets win it with a beautiful selection:

As I Cannot by Christine Penko

Rabbits, Detritus, Rain by Christine Penko

Transverse Range by Marsha de la O

Invisibility Cloak by Marsha de la O

Meteor Display by Mary Ames

Armenian Rhapsody * The Bombing of Tabriz * Blue Watermelon by Mary Freericks
