And Fred Warren has a new story up at Mindflights: One Smile At A Time. There's something special about the girl with the big smile in Mr. Joseph's third grade class, and it just might save the world.

Fred also says: Wow, two stories published in the same week–that's a first for me. This story, "Of All Things, Seen and Unseen," is a tale of faith and adventure set in the Rescue Sisters Universe created by Robert and Karina Fabian in their anthologies, Infinite Space, Infinite God, and Leaps of Faith. My story was inspired by their work and inhabits their universe with their permission.

A lot of new stories at Residential Aliens (www.resaliens.com) this week--check 'em out!
