Dethroned: Act I

by Jim Kozak

It’s been forty years since the declared defeat of the Last Great Plague, and in 2157, life on Earth has gone back to normal. Unfortunately.

While billions fell to this silent killer, the Earth Global Initiative was formed to help protect and insulate the remaining population. Their goal took them in a myriad of different directions, attempting to combat, contain, and cleanse the devastation wrought by the disease. Ultimately, their solution was to corral the remaining uninfected behind the high walls of their â??New’ cities until a cure could be developed. And though humanity survived, what came after has sucked the spirit from our species.

Now, the government has stopped caring about the people, and the people have been beaten into apathy by the new status quo. Skilled work is gated behind education, and education carries such a high price that military service is the only avenue to climb that ladder. With no conflict to overcome and no enemy to fight, idleness has taken root, and incompetence is rampant. Counter-intelligence officer Seth Renquist knows this all too well.

Seth owes his survival to the EGI military. They took him in off the streets, gave him a purpose, and though he has seen facets of the worst humanity has to offer, his life overall has been good. But maybe there are things out there that even he cannot ignore. Just what would it take to turn his indifference into rage?

The opposition groups might have a point. Maybe the EGI has served its purpose and run its course. The people should start standing up for themselves and do something. Or maybeâ?¦ The time has come for the EGI to be DETHRONED.

Them Bones

by Howard Waldrop

â??Unique, addictive. There’s never been anyone like Waldrop, in or out of science fiction’ – GEORGE R.R. MARTIN

Madison Yazoo Leake, of the bombed-out, radiation-ridden twenty-first century, wanted to stop World War Three before it began.

When he stepped through the time portal, he thought he was entering 1930s Louisiana. Instead, he found a world where Arabs explored America, Christianity and the Roman Empire had never existed, and Aztecs performed human sacrifices near the Mississippi as woolly mammoths roamed nearby.

One hundred and forty people, plus equipment, were due to follow him. They didn’t appear. And Leake began to wonder if he could ever go back . . .

Them Bones (1984) is the first solo novel by science fiction writer Howard Waldrop. It was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award in 1984, but lost out to William Gibson’s Neuromancer; both novels were part of the third Ace Science Fiction Specials series edited by Terry Carr.

Praise for Howard Waldrop

â??A tense, fast-paced time-travel yarn, packed with gritty detail’ – Gregory Benford

“It’s not what the reader expectsâ?¦ You can’t get that from a Howard Waldrop story. The wise Waldrop reader leaves his or her expectations in those little lockers that management has provided near the beginning of the story. You can reclaim them afterward, if you still want them. Most people don’t bother” – Eileen Gunn

â??It’s original and quirky and weird, and I love it to bits and always haveâ?¦ What makes this book so masterful is Waldrop’s knowledge of history and masterful interweaving of stories to make them more than the sum of their parts.’ Jo Walton

Howard Waldrop, born in Mississippi and now living in Austin, Texas, is an American iconoclast. His stories combine elements such as alternate history, American popular culture, the American South, old movies, classical mythology and rock â??n’ roll music. He won the Nebula and World Fantasy Awards for his novelette The Ugly Chickens.



H7N9 Penitence

by Mark Campbell

In a small poultry farm located in Delaney, Georgia an antigenic shift causes the H7N9 virus – also known as the deadly bird flu virus – to jump species. The contagion burns through everything in its path despite the federal government’s ham-handed efforts to mask the mutated virus’ true nature. Its unprecedented mortality rates soon paralyze the nation – paving the way for martial law to be established across the country.

Over a thousand miles away at a maximum security penitentiary south of Tucson, Arizona, Inmate Teddy Sanders’ world of structure and routine crumbles to dust, as the virus starts spreading within the confines of the prison’s walls.

As circumstances force Teddy to step out of his comfort zone and form precarious new alliances, will he be able to adapt and survive or will he succumb to the inherent dangers of the new world?
