7 A Road Not Chosen by woodmanone

This is a story based on a real person and facts about her life. I've embellished, dramatized, and taken literary license to make it more entertaining than a dry biography. I've found the facts in this story and what this woman accomplished amazing. She showed courage that many of us would be hard pressed to duplicate.

10 A Plea for Rescue by normist

This little contribution was suggested by an email received from my Editor, TeNderLoin No idea is truly original. This tale owes a debt to one I read in the nineteen forties; only that was about a an earlier tale of an atomic bomb!
