The ascendancy of mankind is being decided on Jupiter

In the 22nd century, mankind assimilated the Solar System within the orbits of the inner planets, and was gradually moving further out, beyond the asteroid belt, onward towards the outer planets.

The recently discovered technology of remote manipulation gave people the capability of altering the orbit of celestial bodies of planetary size, which laid the foundation of a new era for the human race: the terraforming age. The colonization of space beyond the limits of the Solar System became only a matter of time.

Soon after the first successful test, changing the orbit of Mercury, a strange object moving from the depths of space towards the centre of the Solar System entered the field of vision of a telescope at an observatory in Chileâ?¦



Diver Creed Station

by Oliver Phipps

Wars, disease and a massive collapse of civilization have ravaged the human race of a hundred years in the future. Finally in the late twenty- second century, mankind slowly begins to struggle back from the edge of extinction.

When a huge “virtual life” facility is restored from a hibernation type of storage and slowly brought back online, a new hope materializes.

Fragments of humanity begin to move into the remnants of Denver and the Virtua-Gauge facilities, which offer seven days of virtual leisure for seven days work in this new and growing social structure.

Most inhabitants of this new lifestyle begin to hate the real world and work for the seven day period inside the virtual pods. It’s the variety of luxury role play inside the virtual zone that supply’s the incentive needed to work hard for seven days in the real world.

In this new social structure a man can work for seven days in a food dispersal unit and earn seven days as a twenty first century software billionaire in the virtual zone. As time goes by and more of the virtual pods are brought back online life appears to be getting better.

Rizette and her husband Oray are young technicians that settle into their still new marriage as the virtual facilities expand and thrive.

Oray has recently attained the level of a Class A Diver and enjoys his job. The Divers are skilled technicians that perform critical repairs to the complex system, from inside the virtual zone.

His title of Diver originates from often working in the secure “lower levels” of the system. These lower level areas are the dividing space between the real world and the world of the virtual zone. When the facility was built, the original designers of the virtual system intentionally placed this buffer zone in the programs to avoid threats from non-living virtual personnel.

As Oray becomes more experienced in his elite technical position as a Diver, he is approached by his virtual assistant and forced to make a difficult decision. Oray’s decision triggers events that soon pull him and his wife Rizette into a deadly quest for survival.

The stage becomes a massive and complex maze of virtual world sequences as escape or entrapment hang on precious threads of information.

System ghosts from the distant past intermingle with mysterious factions that have thrown Oray and Rizette into a cyberspace trap with little hope for survival.



Slingers: The Victim Hold (Slingers Saga, Vol. 3)

by Matt Wallace

Another slinger has fallen, and their death leaves haunting echoes that threaten to unravel the other members of their team, even as those same gladiators await the decision that will either take them to the championship match or see their hero’s sacrifice in vain.

Meanwhile, new slingers have been called to stand the deadway, a talented twin brother and sister who are untested in battle, and unprepared for the dangers of Sling City and the perils of their sudden and meteoric celebrity status.

Finally, the deposed crime lord of Sling City’s lawless underground, Cuatro, has fled to The Victim Hold, a fabled nook of the space station purported to be its own circle of Hell. Battling the native demons of the Hold won’t be his only challenge, however. Many factions are still hot on Cuatro’s trail, and will follow him anywhere he goes, even into Hell’s attic. Some of them want answers. Others want his life.

THE VICTIM HOLD is the third volume in the ongoing five-part SLINGERS SAGA by Matt Wallace, the award-winning author of THE FAILED CITIES and THE NEXT FIX.

WARNING: Contains intense violence, futurism, and sexual situations.



Jigsaw World

by JD Lovil

In some worlds, there are monsters behind every catastrophe.

Tom lives in one of those worlds, and he is blessed, or cursed, to be able to see the monsters. He learns that the world is not supposed to be that way, and it is a symptom of the breakdown of Reality.

Sometimes, the world drafts you to save it.

Ë?Ë?Ë? Tom realizes that he and the people he gathers in his travels are supposed to fix the world. He doesn’t know how, and he doesn’t know why, but the fates are conspiring to make him a reluctant hero. Anyone that knew Tom would know that was not flattering, just inconvenient and idiotic. Tom suspected that he should be siding with the monsters.

What do you do when the Monster is in the mirror?

Ë?Ë?Ë? People around Tom have a habit of turning up dead. Some of the deaths he knows he had a hand in, and most of those deserved death, at least in some psychedelic lights. Others turn up dead, and Tom has no memory of it, but he does have a suspect; Himself.

Ë?Ë?Ë? If he repairs the world, will there still be a place in it for a monster like him?

Inhuman

by Emarrie Rowe

There are Eximius among us.

It was the end of humanity as they knew it. A virus had broken out and in an effort to contain it, Earth was consumed in fire. But out of the ashes came a darker creature: something that existed between the living and the dead, something that hungered for the flesh of man.

Something Inhuman.

After the Fallout, seventeen-year-old Spenser Weston doesn’t know who to fear more â?? the monsters or the people left behind â?? as she struggles to find a safe place for her siblings. When they stumble upon a survivor’s settlement, she clashes heads with Shawn, a mysterious scout with a bad habit of watching them too closely.

As Shawn weasels his way into the good graces of her brother and sister, he reveals that it is more than survival that has brought them together: Spenser and her siblings belong to the Eximius â?? a line of Superhuman’s fated to exist thousands of years in the future â?? and he’s come to take them to safety.

Now Spenser is about to discover a destiny she never knew she had, a world of secrets more ancient than time itself, and learn that the key to her family’s survival literally runs skin deep.
