Heat returns with another exciting and varied array of stories, comics and poetry! For this volume, Dark End and Black Teagan took on an even greater role in shepherding the creative talents through the editorial and design process. Alopex and Jeff Eddy remained on hand for editing and general busywork, but credit for making sure this volume got finished in time for our usual summer release lies primarily with the younger crowd.
Owen is a quick-witted guy, used to handling a variety of odd jobs — especially jobs where sex is involved — but even he may not be prepared when catering a school reunion leads him to Bears, Repeating (by Tony Greyfox, illustrated by Donryu).
In A Private Escape (by Kandrel, illustrated by Scappo), a writer of gritty crime novels has a problem. His long-running, long-suffering hero, Dirk Silver, has been talking back to him and pushing back against the plot, and now Dirk is prepared to do anything to get himself a happy ending at last.
It's Friday night, and that means game night! So break out the pizza and lucky dice, because the adventurers are facing off with a succubus and need all the good rolls they can manage. Oh, The Games We Play (by Dark End, illustrated by Leucrotta).
Want to have some role-playing fun with that special someone, but can't decide on what role to take? Sounds like it's time for Pizza Repair (a comic by 333456).
In Glory of the Gods (by NightEyes DaySpring, illustrated by Simul), Askan's chastity and scholarship have not earned him his desired place among the cultists of Diana, and may have cost him his closest friend to a very lethal ceremony in honor of Bacchus.
In Unfading (by Slip-Wolf, illustrated by CadmiumTea), everyone knows that life is full of transitions, but Amar's transition is tougher than most: predator to prey. The greatest challenge, though, may be holding together the family who loves her more for who she was than who her heart knows she must become.
The wrap-around cover features art from Black Teagan, inspired by Kandrel's story A Private Escape.
