Gathering Storm Magazine, Year 1, Issue 2, is full of themed short fiction, interactive fiction, poetry, original artwork, and engaging Tidbits that tickle the mind. All of the stories in this issue reflect one of four selected themes by the Founding Editors: Ashes to ashes, dust to dust; If it ain't broke, don't fix it; Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned; and Barking up the wrong tree. The stories include digging in the sands of Egypt, women with rifles and dust bunnies, a house maid's aversion to dust, a political satire resembling modern America, the morning after a date with a strange woman, a woman's desire for revenge for taking her man, another woman's desire to just keep her man, and a western-style story about catching the wrong guy.
