Issue #9 of the Quiet Feather, a US magazine of new writing, illustration, photography and poetry.

This issue, which sadly proved to be the last, contains a rare mainstream story of mine.

"Shelf Life" is a tale about the secret life of books in a second-hand book shop, and how the various titles depart and return to the shelves in seasonal cycles.

Edited by Tim Major, Dominic Hall, Tom Benson and Taissa Csaky.
