On April 29, we celebrated the launch of issue 12 at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe. There was an Exquisite Corpse reading from Slice contributors. This is a game in which one person writes a portion of a story and the next person receives only the final line. The second writer continues the tale with no knowledge of what came before. Then this writer’s last line is passed on to the next person, and so on. We offered a theme of Obsession, but beyond that, who knew what strange turns this story would take. If you missed the event, here’s your chance to check out what happened.
