Bottled Wasps by Paul Buie
Grace and Patrick have returned to the scene of their great romantic adventure, the small seaside hotel where they stayed when they left their respective partners in order to be together. During the course of an evening they realise that much has changed. Walter, mine host, has his own issues: defender of his country and its traditions and what thanks do you get? With a complimentary bar and a sniper’s rifle that can take off the top of your head from half a mile away, how bad can it get?

AfterWords by Michael Hart
'AfterWords' charts the journey of Julie, a recent arrival in the afterlife, as she attempts to be reacquainted with her husband Derek who passed away many years before. The controlling dynamic throughout is that in the afterlife your physical appearance is determined by the age at which you were happiest in life. This simple conceit has significant effects on the relationships between husband and wife, father and daughter and past and present. Julie took her own life to be with Derek. This afterlife will keep them apart forever.
