Remedial Theory
by Benjamen Walker (The Next Big Thing, 2002)
When Slobodan Milosevic was tried at the Hague for crimes against humanity, the world collectively turned against him -- except for Benjamen Walker, who hand-delivered a pile of edifying literature to him, including Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment.

by Joan Schuman (The Next Big Thing, 2001)
Imagine being in love with someone with whom you've never communicated verbally. That's how it was at the start of Tripura and Om's relationship. Joan Schuman paints an aural portrait of their very quiet relationship.

And How Does That Make You Feel 
by Kathleen Ross (Blunt Youth Radio, 2003)
Stella's senior year in high school isn't about proms and football games. It's full of therapists, overbearing adults, and vice. Kathleen Ross offers this fictionalized view of high school from the therapist's couch.

Chicken Diaries
by Jude Fletcher and Michael Johnson (Hot Soup, 2003)
They're great for dinner, metaphors, and weak jokes. But can chickens make decent house pets? Meet Betty and Veronica, two hens who give Jude Fletcher the chance to see for herself.
