Brief moments resolve into the love lives of a couple in Tick Tock, while a trip down memory lane could spell disaster for a couple in The Bells of Spring. In Playing to Live, a woman barred from her passion searches for a way to reclaim it. An author struggles to separate himself from his character in Metamary. Striking the Set follows a dutiful but largely ignored son as he arranges a final meeting for his dying father with his much favored brother. And in the signature story, Bumblebee, a young girl gains control over time and destiny in a way that draws the attention of ancient and powerful beings. These stories and others await when you explore the sharply realized, melancholy-tinged worlds of Zach Elliott.
