HITTITE

by Walter Erickson

Horst Hessemann, Professor of Oriental Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, travels to 1273 BC Hatti to document the battle of Kadesh between the Egyptians and the Hittites. While there he is attacked by assassins from the 24th century, meets and falls in love with a young Hittite woman named Teshan, saves a young Hittite farmer from death, is tortured by the Egyptians, and returns to his own time to discover he has not traveled to his own distant past, but to someone else’s present, a discovery that means Teshan is alive somewhere. He sets out to find her, and does, with unforeseen consequences. Events take place against the backdrop of the war between two regional superpowers, the Egypt of the Pharoah Ramses II and King Muwatalli of Hatti. The battle of Kadesh, the first recorded battle in history, is historically accurate, as is Hittite equipment and language.



SPYDER SYLK

by Jonathan Marker

In 2050, when the Federal government commits to a mass ejection of all illegal residents to reduce overpopulation and quell civil unrest, a research organization called the SYLK Institute devises a means to eliminate those illegal residents that refuse deportation. Under the veil of the opportunity to become US Citizens by completing a five-year period of service to an infrastructure development effort called the Harvestmen Candidate Program, these illegal residents actually become live training aids for a covert military training replacement program codenamed SPYDER SYLK. Enter Nathaniel Dixon, a man made prisoner to the SYLK Institute for his father’s endangerment of a Veteran treatment program the organization ran two decades prior, who becomes the unfortunate guinea pig for SPYDER SYLK. As the lynchpin of the program, Nathaniel undergoes a yearlong transformation into a synthesized weapon called a SPYDER, under the care of Doctor Robert Wulfrom – the same man who imprisoned him for twenty years. Enabled by a neural implant called Trapdoor, Nathaniel slowly melds the synthetic capabilities of the implant with his body, through carefully designed training scenarios that use live Harvestmen to elicit lethal responses by projecting nonlethal force on the SPYDER. As the transformation progresses, Nathaniel systematically surrenders his memories for complete neural implant control, and begins to demonstrate the utility of the program with staggering efficiency. However, when a saboteur with direct access to the delicate hardware of SPYDER SYLK compromises the integrity of the concept, the program begins to unravel. When failure appears imminent, the SYLK Institute cadre commits to drastic measures to ensure the delivery of a SPYDER to the Federal government within the promised time.
