Travail by E.M Prazeman is not the kind of story I'd normally gravitate toward. It's the story of Sir Brian Buldwen, a knight living in the kind of primitive medieval world you'd expect. It felt slow in the beginning, mainly because the author was establishing the story world and it isn't the kind of world that appeals to me. But I realized about a quarter of the way into the story that I was fully sucked in. I cared about Sir Brian and wanted him to succeed. I was amused by his jester friend, Pick. From the point I was hooked, I stayed that way. Part of it might be that the language used was modern without a barrage of phony (or maybe not) olde English words to keep reminding the reader we're operating in a different time.
The other story that stuck with me was The Last Refuge, a post-apocalyptic or dystopian story by William J. Cook. This story strikes close to home in our current political environment in the US as we follow Hamza, the Muslim main character, as he comes to terms with losing his family, a wife and daughter, and then discovers that his own survival is questionable. Luckily, just as in times past, even when it seems like the entire world has become evil, there are some who choose to do the right thing.
