Fifth Season by David Wailing

Fifth Season is a shortish story of a young boy in Australia's views and experiences when a "new season" occurs, where there's daylight for 24 hours.

The story is written in the first person perspective in a very young voice and gives a very good representation of what you'd imagine your 9 year old self would feel in that situation.  

The second story "Nineteen Seventy-Steve" is set on a summer's day where Steve is in a moment in time in his life.  This was previously published in a KUForum anthology

David Wailing has a certain perspective of time, whether it is a moment in the past or a future that's not quite here yet.
