Beyond Asimios – 6

by Martin Fossum

“Just when I imagine that I might transcend my destitute predicament here on this dusty hell, Phobos emerges to remind me that my thoughts are pure fantasy. Day after day after day, that cursed eye traverses my consciousness, a cold reminder of everything lost. If I could wipe out this mocking stone, wave my hand and make it disappear, then, perhaps, our collective misery would be reduced by half.”

-Abloss Flekc, Martian satirist and cultural critic.

The Troubleshooter

by Bard Constantine

Note: This story appears in the Dieselpunk ePulp showcase under the title The Wise Man Says. So you might want to pick up that book and score three more noir/pulp stories completely free:

Messiah’s Shard

by Mark W. Bonnett

Beyond the universe you know, evil lies waiting…

John Harley never thought he’d be the one who’d have to save the universe; exactly how can one little man from the world’s most insular village, a man not even brave enough to tell the woman he loves that he does, in fact, love her, be expected to save everyone, and everything, from a fate where they’d wish they were merely dead?

So many questions vie for attention in his mind, as he faces up to a galaxy that’s bigger, and scarier, than he could have ever imagined. Why can he feel what other people feel? Why is an Egyptian goddess completely fixated on him? Why is there a nagging feeling, in his head, that he’s not a complete person? Who are those blue people, and why are their knees on backwards?

And why are the yellow eyes, the ones that haunt his dreams, and whose voice calls out to those poor souls unlucky enough to hear, so intent on turning the galaxy into a perfect reproduction of hell?

Although that might be because she’s a dog in a spacesuit…

Captain Jacob Green, “Bulldog” Rymack and the rest of the crew are about to embark upon an adventure that will take them across two star systems and right into the heart of obsession, as they race to uncover the secret of THE NON-RANDOM DOG!
