Ghetto

by M L Sparrow

Can one person change the world?

My name’s Sunny Grace Beaumont. Branded SGB/2/6895/03.12.93. Only child, self-taught computer geek and cancer survivor. Oh, and did I mention my dad’s the President? As you can imagine that’s sometimes a little problematic, especially when I want to sneak out. But it never got me into quite as much trouble as the night I ventured into the Ghetto – don’t ask me why I was there in the first placeâ?¦ it was stupid. Everyone knows that the Ghetto is where hardened criminals are sent to live out the remainder of their lives. At first the men that kidnap me are just as I’d imagine, mean and thoughtless, but slowly I begin to have doubts.

I meet a guy. His name’s Sin, he has no Brand – a crime punishable by death – and he’s the rebel leader. I should hate himâ?¦ but I don’t. Instead he opens my eyes to a whole other side of the Ghetto, where people are innocent of the crimes they’re accused of and helpless children suffer dreadful poverty. Is it possible that I’ve been lied to my entire lifeâ?¦ that the governments been deceiving everyone? And how can I challenge the law my own dad is adamant to uphold?



The Sentient Advantage

by Chris Pugmire

The Sentient Advantage is pure engaging, entertaining, and stimulating science fiction. In the tradition of Douglas Adams? Hitchhiker?s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy, Pugmire injects an intelligent comedic element into a futuristic science fiction theme that will appeal to both sci-fi enthusiasts and satire lovers alike. Pugmire?s deadpan delivery does not obscure the twinkle in his eye as his story unfolds. When Jaros wakes up and finds himself falling from space, he is alarmed to realize that he has no memory. Nothing. Yet it seems like he was expected. He takes up residence in Kayla?s haunted house that is run by a house comp that won’t take orders. Together they must figure out what?s really going on, save the galaxy, and avoid being killed by large ugly aliens. Every step of their adventure is hilarious. This is the kind of book that people pass on to their friends, but want returned so they can read it again when their friends have finished.

by Karen Kincy

Sometimes escape is impossible. Sometimes love isn’t enough.

1913. Christmas Eve. Ardis hardly expects a quiet holiday with Wendel, between fleeing Constantinople and hiding from an ancient society of assassins. And they owe a debt to a certain archmage.

In Königsberg, Prussia, they work with Konstantin on the next evolution of Project Lazarus. Wendel once called Königsberg home, the city now besieged by the Russians and their clockwork engines of war. This may be Wendel’s last chance to save his family and find redemption, but he’s tormented by nightmares and tempted by laudanum. Ardis fears her love isn’t enough to save Wendel. Her hands are full piloting the automatons, and she’s terrified to tell him a secret of her own. Will they–and their love–survive the storms of war?

Heartland Junk Part II: Sanctuary: A ZOMBIE Apocalypse Thriller

by Eli Nixon

It came at you first like an unexpected chill breeze on a warm day. Most people never had a chance to figure out what was happening before it was too late. Only the lucky ones, the ones already ruined, like me, were able to defend ourselves.

The terrifying second installment of Heartland Junk, a zombie apocalypse serial novel!

Instinctively, I crouched into the wheat, letting the thin stalks brush my face. The people on the hill just stood there, unmoving. Staring. Had they seen me? I didn’t think they had. In fact, I had a creeping suspicion that they couldn’t see anything. This wasn’t exactly what I’d expected, but it was close.

I lowered myself onto hands and knees and began crawling toward the row of dark shapes. Sunlight struck their left sides at such an extreme angle that the rest of their bodies were obscured in shadow, halfway between silhouette and nightmare.

I didn’t have a weapon. I could feel my head clearing itself of hydrocodone, feel my limbs getting lighter by the minute. This was foolish. No, it was suicide. I crawled forward. I had to know. For everyone. For Rivet, for Jennie. For me. Damn it, I needed answers. Rivet was always right, in the end. It just took everyone else awhile to come around.

I scrambled closer, keeping my head below the ceiling of clear air above the wheat. Stalks bent and snapped beneath my palms, my knees, the rubber toes of my shoes. Every few seconds, I popped my head into the clear to see how close I’d come. And every time, the statuesque bodies loomed nearer, watching, waiting for something. Dark sentinels in the growing twilight. I could see now that they were turned away from me, all of them, facing south over the darkening field.

With startling speed, the sun dropped behind the treeline off to the left, sending shadows racing past me to reunite with their dark brethren on the opposite border. Its light still reflected on the high clouds overhead, filling that wide, endless sky with fire even while the ground sank into darkness. The line of people was now a true silhouette, outlined against the arc of gold clinging tenaciously to the distant hilltop.

They were just ten feet away now, the people. They hadn’t reacted to my approach, hadn’t turned from their eternal vigil, and I was now close enough to see why.

They were staked to the ground.

In the Winter of 36,148: A novel based on events in the northern hemisphere as the next great ice age begins

by PR Travis

This is science fiction. It’s not military sci-fi, and it’s not a thriller of any kind. If you read “Never let me Go” and gave it one star, consider hitting the back-button. This is thought-experiment science fiction.

The original title was “the Intransigence of the Mind of god”, which I still like better, but which I’ve let go for two main reasons. Firstly, I didn’t want anyone to think there was a religious bent to the story. I also wanted to emphasize that more time will have passed between now and the story’s setting, than has already passed between the writing of the first word and our present day.

When there is only one city left on Earth, when the fervent expansion and exploitation of natural resources has slowed to the meager requirements of that city’s sustenance, when the next ice age is about to begin, what will occupy the minds and lives of human beings?

Expansion into the stars certainly will. The people who inhabit this world surely know its ultimate doom to fall into the sun. Creating the perfect social order would as well, if society had not already been perfected.

In the year 36,148 there are three castes. Members of each are instantly recognizable by their physical features and by the numerical designations inked on their brows:  the slave-castes, so populous that their names may begin with any of four numerals with a leading “S”-phonetic; the Acolytes, whose names all begin with “1”, and whose minds are made of synthetic as well as organic neurons; a middling class of military strongmen, which civilization in the year 36,148 has nearly outgrown.

Each member of each caste is specifically engineered to fulfill a role, and each individual is satisfied with that role. The tranquility of civilized life, though, is shattered from without and within late in the year.

Thirty-two boys of sixteen, freshly minted soldiers, are called upon to find and destroy the City’s enemies.

Lam, their Acolyte governess, discovers soon afterward that her civilization is much less perfect than she had once believed. She knows that to affect the only just outcome of a terrible crime, she must defy the only authority she has ever known, and lose those she loves forever.

A short note on names:

Names follow a modified latin phonic, modified because short and long vowels are necessary.

“Cii” and “Fii” and “Pii” rhyme with “sea” and “fee” and “pea,” “Pai” and “Sai” with “pie” and “sigh,” and “Eit” with “eight.”  “Six” and “Nine” are spelled with ” î.” The sound is the same, but the meaning of the numeral is distinct.
