**PRINT: A GAME I ONCE ENJOYED, by Chicago's Patrick Somerville, is THE2NDHANDís 32nd broadsheet. Somerville's work previously appeared in No.24 in 2007, and this Somervilleís second broadsheet since the release of his short-story collection, Trouble, in 2006 marks the first since his novel The Cradle launched into the cultural imagination with coverage in the form of reviews in places as high as the New York Times Book Review. Donít let that turn you off, though; Somervilleís work is viscerally humorous and elegantly dramatic as the best out there, as evidenced in this epic story, about a chess game whose stakes might well be higher than its players know. Also in this issue: a short from Ohio scribe Daniel Gallik.

Questions from http://affiliates.walmart.com/aff_faqs.jsp
Answers from http://www.webspawner.com/users/prashan/

Does it cost anything to become a Walmart.com affiliate?

No, but infants may catch the disease from a parent and show the first signs of infection after an incubation period of from two to five years.

THE LEFT HAND: Soap, Lit

What is included in the affiliate membership?

Patches which are paler in color than normal skin. There is no one "first sign". Careful examination by a competent doctor with the examination of skin smears under a microscope is necessary for correct diagnosis

What happens if a customer I referred returns a product?

Many become healed without any treatment at all and others who have been diagnosed and treated in the early stages of the disease suffer no deformity.

So how do I join?

The disease is slightly contagious and caused by a tiny rod-like germ called Mycobacterium Leprae. Scientifically speaking, it is almost impossible to prove how the germ gets from one person to another.
