Mina

by Ron Wingrove

In a futuristic Utopia marred only by a too-recent war in the rebellious colonies surrounding far-off planets, one man’s search for meaning after the accidental death of his whole family becomes a desperate struggle for survival when he stumbles on a plot that extends all the way up to the planet-wide Representative Assembly, and as far back as the creation of the very first Artificial Intelligence, now over a century ago.

In a world of flying cars, space travel, energy weapons, and androids indistinguishable from the humans they work beside, how far will one man go to protect the life he has made for himself?

Mina is a science fiction adventure story of love, courage, sacrifice and political intrigue suitable for a mature audience.



Eden Green

by Fiona van Dahl

Warning: Contains body horror, contamination, implied eternal suffering, gun use, needles, and spiders.

In a single drop of contaminated blood, there writhe millions of needle-shaped cells. When introduced to a host, they spread â?? healing wounds, replenishing fluids, patching bone. The host becomes unstoppable; even complete destruction of its brain isn’t necessarily the end. All their cells are gradually replaced, enhanced.

Eden Green is the third human to see the needles in action, after her best friend Veronica accepts them without thinking. Patient Zero is Tedrin, a shady manipulator who offers the corruption as a path to immortality. Only Eden, a rationalist by nature, questions Tedrin’s motives; she can’t help imagining an eternity as a human weapon trapped in a body made of needles.

Armed with reason, humor, and a shotgun, she sets out to learn as much as she can about the parasite â?? and how to save her sanity, Veronica, and the world.

Fables of York

by C L Stover

My name is Case, a hunter for the good people of the Hotel, one of the last two hunters remaining. For as long as I have known our people have been alone on the plains. Sure, at one time there were more. We have pictures of what the towns and cities used to look like. Those are gone now. Wiped away by the beast known as time and some fiercer beasts with sharper fangs.

In our home we have stories written on the walls, passed down and preserved through the generations. Stories of a war hundreds of years ago and of a land that survived the destruction. Stories of beasts, long thought to be myth and legend, rising up from the shadows to take back a world that was once theirs. But, those are just stories. They can’t be true.

With black smoke on the horizon, emanating from within the ruins we are told at a young age to avoid, I have to wonder. With visitors to our land that closely resemble humans, operating weird machinery and wearing strange suits, I have begun to question everything. Are the Fables of York really just stories?



The Long Night Of The Martian Missile Crisis

by C Z Hazard

The fate of humanity weighs heavy on the President of a united Earth.

Faced with increasingly aggressive posturing from Mars, he finds himself in the middle of a missile crisis for a new generation, as the Martians position their weapons on Earth’s Moon. This results in a drastic shift in the balance of power, with the Martians now possessing first strike capacity far surpassing that of the Earth. With tensions mounting and the doomsday clock ticking ever closer to midnight, will either side back down in time? Will the President make the right choice? Is there even a right choice for the President to make?

The futures of two planets hang in the balance.

Set on a slightly futuristic, alternate Earth, this cautionary tale evokes cold war hysteria and knife-edge politics as it tells its pertinent and poignant story in an age where Game Theory and fear of Mutually Assured Destruction are no longer the solutions they once were.

Taxi M’Koo & the Helium Drive (Strange Doors)

by John Argo

In a post-apocalyptic future, Taxi M’Koo and her sidekick Sam–the lean silent type–drive south in their old, smoking hummer along the old Pacific Highway in what used to be SoCal–today, a devastated countryside filled with death and danger.

Taxi and Sam have one goal: simply to stay alive from day to day–sometimes hour to hour–in a hostile landscape populated by the mutant offspring of escaped zoo animals, plus poison lakes, killer machines with scorpion brains, and worst of all, rogue humans who kill for pleasure.

Crisis strikes when the old hummer runs into a bummer: no more fuel. The fusion drive fuel cell is called a helium drive, but obviously it requires more than just the gas used for filling party balloons, back in a lost golden age when there was a world, so to speak, with normalcy and small niceties.

At the very moment when their old vehicle gives up the ghost, Taxi M’Koo and Sam find themselves near the main gate of a strange, pre-disaster government genetics farm, where experiments were done ages ago on human beings.

Some of the prisoners behind miles of electrified wire are so mutated that they cannot be allowed back out into the world. Others are as genetically pure as humans can be, and must be kept separate from contamination.

Taxi, who is part woman and part wildcat, desperately needs to invade this terrifying space to steal a helium drive engine for their dying hummer. And Sam, a bony man with a long beard and a wide-brimmed hat full of shadows, casts a sour eye on the enterprise. But that’s his take on life, such as it is.

But nothing can stop Taxi M’Koo–not even the mutant police inside the lab grounds. It’s now or never, and Taxi goes over the fence stealthy as a cat, determined as a woman, to save herself and Sam and get what they need–at any cost. What she encounters are stunning and challenging reminders of why the world became the glassy, smoking ruin that it is–that odd, atomic chemistry of the human, the inhumane, and the unimaginable. At the same time, Taxi’s reaction to the inhabitants of this dread zone keeps alive the tiny but precious candle flames of love, affection, and the full spectrum of human contact.

This story is one of those Strange Doors–open it or not, but if you do, accept the unexpected and take with you the same ponderings of love and death as Taxi and Sam while their battered but newly replenished fusion vehicle whispers off amid the thunder of surf and the silence of a dead civilization.

Ed. Note: The term ‘helium drive’ is post-apocalyptic street jargon for a fusion drive. As in the sun and stars–but on a microscopic scale–hydrogen in this futuristic type of street engine is deeply compressed into a plasma state, shedding light (photons) and heat, and in the process fusing into a smaller volume of helium.



The Battle For Zazza (The Legends of Nalia Fuunru Book 1)

by Terry Lefler

â??The Battle for Zazza’ is a military space opera, which takes place in the distant future, but has its roots in the distant past. There was a Dispersion of humanity, which took place eons ago, because ancient enemies were on the verge of eradicating the original human species. Billion of humans, in thousands of stasis ships were launched, from the original human planets, in the hopes that humanity could find safe havens, far from their enemies.

Now, eons later, those same ancient enemies have found the humans again – but this time humanity is better prepared. The humans from the ancient Dispersion have prepared for this confrontation, and have chosen a leader for the human’s war of survival, and that war begins at Zazza. .
