What follows are three short stories and a novella, all currently in progress. "The Fourth Tap" pours beers with a brewpub owner who finds a long-forgotten, dusty bottle. "Pella" collects truffles with an American and his hound in the oak groves of southern France. "Forecasting - A Collection of Vignettes" plummets through the roof of a gymnasium in Loma Linda, California like an inexplicable ice block. "The Pursuit of Rivers" proceeds in four parts, beginning with a trip to the Delaware shore.
