Gamers

by Thomas K. Carpenter

Two points for brushing your teeth. Ten points for keeping your room tidy. Seventy-two points for the Bioeconomic Game Design pop quiz on the ride to school in your personal FunCar. Another thirty for making every hurdle in gym class.

Life is a game, unless you’re not the one winning.

Gabby DeCorte, top student and reality-hacker extraordinaire, has been doing whatever it takes to keep her best friend, Zaela, from falling behind in LifeGame. Zaela has gifts of artistry that amaze Gabby, but none of those skills translate in LifeGame and with final exams coming up, they can’t afford to waste a single minute. But when a mysterious group called the Frags contacts Gabby claiming to know what really happens to the losers of LifeGame, she must choose between winning and what she believes in.

Etare : The Rise of the Princeps

by Paulo G. Marinho

This is a world surviving chaos with a revolution which extinguished nations and

religions. This is Tellus, a planet plunged into some sort of world peace; a rich planet

where citizens live a stable and comfortable life, although having their future dictated by

the revolutionary state.

Marcus Antonius is a young man born and raised in this new world. He could be

the model for a perfect revolutionary, if only he could forget the forbidden love which had

haunted him all his youth: Magdalena.

While searching for his place in society, Marcus will find out the Revolution is not

as consistent as one might think. The rebirth of Etare, that which had been the most

powerful city in the world, shall reveal the ghost of the past still haunts people, and that

religions are only resting in the hearts and minds of some. Prophecy says it will not take

long for Marcus to shake this perfect world into a tailspin.

Marcus will find out that howsoever the state seeks absolute control over citizens

fate and free will are two sides of the same coin. This coin which spins in absentia while

we become either protagonists or we hold supporting roles in the course of History.

Etare, in a way, is an allegory and a denouncement of what is seen in modern

society, where interests and points of view battle in the different layers of the public

sphere.

THE BELT

Interviewer: “Tell me how you became Furai.”

Eric: “When Portland, Oregon was VAPORIZED: I lived in a suburb; I survived the first day, or, Day One, as the Alien Grays call it.

After the round up, worldwide, all survivors of the Gray massacre, are placed in labor camps.

We, the survivors, feed THE CONVEYOR BELT.

You can place anything on THE BELT, trees, bodies, dirt, rocks, grassâ?¦

THE BELT leads to a giant furnace miles away, taking the material on THE BELT; converting it into what the Grays need:

INPUT:

Water

Organic matter

Minerals

Trash

etc.

OUTPUT:

Energy

Food

Plastic

Steel

Ammunition

Rail guns

Shields

Propaganda

etc.

I’ve been branded on my forehead. I’m forbidden from speaking during working hours; surrounded by men, women, children.

My orders: feed THE BELT!

We: dig, chop, chainsaw, bulldoze, hoist, heave, haul, push, pull. Tons of raw material are placed on THE BELT every second. Ten hours a day we labor; 7 days a week.

When I have a question, I look up; the SCREEN tells me what to do.

When one of us passes out from exhaustion, or dies, they’re thrown on THE BELT, with the rest of the material.

In front of me life: trees, grass, birds.

Behind me: THE BELT leading to the furnace; our mobile living quarters; desolation.

Upon awakening, we look forward to the living horizon, ignoring the dead trenches behind us.

The Earth is being strip-mined; converted into Gray raw material. Every: useful; living; or green thing, EVERYTHING that can be chopped, shoveled or ground is placed on THE BELT.

After 10 hours of labor, the doors to our living quarters open; we go inside, eat, socialize, fall asleep.

We live a spartan existence.

We’re never cold or hungry.

It: never rains; is always 75 degrees and sunny. Rain and clouds are burned away, by an energy shield following our camp, along with our living quarters.

The Grays encourage BREEDING; all of the women, of child bearing age, are pregnant. Women who refuse to breed are thrown on THE BELT.

The screens tell us: work! be happy; don’t ask questions; breed; we comply.

Rock music is playing from the loudspeakers.

The Grays don’t talk to us; they communicate with one another telepathically. Our only communication with the Grays: the messages appearing on the SCREENS.

This is what has become of man: FEED THE BELT! BE HAPPY! DON’T ASK QUESTIONS! BREED! So we do.

I’m fast asleep on day 45; a man wakes me up, â??follow me if you want to LIVE.’ He jumps back through the hole in my floor; I follow. I crawl, in an underground tunnel, for 1 hour.

I march, with thousands of other branded men, women, children, briskly for 24 hours straight.

A large group gather in a huge cave, in the rain forests of Oregon, behind a waterfall; somewhere in the Columbia River Gorge.

Joe is a small man with a deep voice, a large scar across his face.

Joe: â??You are here because you have been summoned. Right now you have a choice: you can go back to THE BELT, or, join the Furai.

YOU HAVE BEEN FREED FROM THE BELT, RIGHT NOW; THIS MOMENT.

If you join us:

We’ll teach you how to: fight; acquire wealth; build an army; organize; communicate in secret, gather intelligence; lead an army; send these evil fucking bastards back to hell!

We are NOT an army of FOLLOWERS, a hive mind of automatons.

We are a hydra, a multi-headed monster from greek mythology; if an attacker strikes one head, 4 heads attack the attacker.

If a head is cut off; two more grow in its place.

When God made man; He created a weapon.

This galaxy belongs to US!

JOIN US.’

Beneath the Clouds

by Shane Goetze

The flying men of China

A Hong Kong museum is host to artefacts from a lost race of people known as the Hu. Many believe that the Hu once possessed the ability to fly before they were wiped out during the Cultural Revolution.

But after the artefacts’ theft, journalist Bill Jacks receives a lead from a mysterious source. And so he leaves the shores of Hong Kong to embark on a perilous journey that will lead him through the very heart of China. Together with Hong Kong policeman, Allen Lam, Bill begins to unearth the mystery of the Hu.

But even as he begins to discover the truthâ??that the Hu might not be so ancient after allâ??he becomes the target of vicious Communist agents, who will do anything to stop him from telling the world about the flying men of China. And if Bill can’t solve the mystery of the Hu, then they will disappear forever into mists of history.

The question is, can Bill discover the ancient sanctuary of the Hu before it is too lateâ?¦?



Coping With Terminal Stillness

by Justin P Lambert

The third collection of poetry, short stories and essays, from Justin P Lambert, a freelance writer, author and poet living in North Carolina with his wife and two kids.
This book is guaranteed to make you happier, healthier and smarter. It will cure balding, broken hearts and the mange. It will likely result in world peace, assuming word spreads far enough. It’s not so much a book as it is an experience.
As is to be expected, the contents of this book are about as believable as that last paragraph.
But it’s a fun read if you like this sort of thing. Enjoy!
