On Heat

A Short Story by

"On Heat" - An anthropologist is beguiled by the reproductive customs of a remote rainforest tribe. But as his daughter recounts, when he brings a young native woman home, he discovers that all is perhaps not as it seemed. "Sins and Virtues" - an ageing master calligrapher finds that fame brings burdens of its own, as he recalls his life, his art, and the forces of change that threaten to overtake him.
