A collection of nine short stories resulting from the "Red Adept Reviews Twists Contest."
“42jorie” by John Philpin: A man meets a special woman online.
An intriguing tale of a man who's internet flirtations go just a little too far. On the surface it makes a fun psychological short story. If you go a little deeper, there a bit of social commentary you can draw out. The internet is a wonderful tool but definitely has a dark underbelly. Who are you really talking to online?
"42jorie" has a fun little turn of events at the end. But as with some of the other stories in the collection, the conclusion goes just a tad too far in explanation department. Some things are best left to the readers imagination.
