Other Targets 

(An Excerpt)

By Angela Wright

Gunshots! Gunshots!” my manager shouts through the phone. He has a penchant for being melodramatic and inflating the truth to make a point. It’s hard to hear him over the din in the background.

The Lives of Milton Acorn

(An Excerpt)

By Nicholas Herring

Milton James Rhode Acorn was born in Charlottetown, PEI, on March 30, 1923. 

James Milton Rhodes Acorn (called Mickey by his brothers and sisters), whose descendants were German millers, was born in the old Provincial Hospital in Charlottetown.

Some people still incorrectly assume that “Milton Acorn” was a nom de plume.
