An assassin's guide to love & treason

by Virginia Boecker

When Lady Katherine's father is killed for being an illegally practicing Catholic, she discovers he was also involved in a murder plot against the reigning Queen Elizabeth I. She disguises herself as a boy and travels to London to take it one step further: kill the queen herself. She is cast in William Shakespeare's newest play, which is to be performed in front of Her Majesty. But the play is a plot to destroy the rebellion, masterminded by fellow cast-member Toby Ellis, a young spy for the queen with secrets of his own.

All the lonely people

by David Owen

Everyone tells Kat that her online personality - confident, funny, opinionated - isn't her true self. Kat knows otherwise. The internet is her only way to cope with a bad day, chat with friends who get all her references, make someone laugh. But when she becomes the target of an alt-right trolling campaign, she feels she has no option but to Escape, Delete, Disappear. With her social media shut down, her website erased, her entire online identity void, Kat feels she has cut away her very core: without her virtual self, who is she? She brought it on herself. Or so Wesley keeps telling himself as he dismantles Kat's world.
