Here's the first paragraph of my contribution "Metamorphosis"--Josh Banks turned his key and entered the country shack. The place
seemed colder these days without her there. On the wall, where portraits
of her pretty face once smiled back at him, there was only bare wood
paneling. Vinnie had already removed all the painful reminders of her
beauty, her warmth. Dirty clothes lay draped over furniture and empty
bottles of Bourbon were scattered on the carpet, but what bothered Josh
most were the stacks of strange books. Vinnie’s new obsession.
