THE JOSHUA COMPLEX—AJ Larson|
As we enter the age of Artificial Intelligence, the lines between programmed emotions and real ones can easily become blurred.
Sometimes, the infections a person can get are not the kind that simply cause an itch, especially when technology is involved...
A QUESTION OF BELONGING—Karen Heslop
For some, losing themselves in a good book is an escape, but for others with special abilities, it can actually become reality.
VOLTAGE FIGHTER ARGENT: “POWERLESS”—Trey McIntosh
One would think that being endowed with superpowers would solve all your troubles. It doesn’t.
RISING MELODY—Claire Davon
Many of us grow up with expectations of our future selves. It’s no different for those beings we consider mythical.
DR. FOSTER—K. I. Borrowman
There is an explorer in all of us and if you were invited to travel across the galaxy with an alien species, would you go?
PROJECT A.E.O.—Chance Barton
A species created to carry on in the footsteps of their progenitors only to discover their existence has a darker purpose...
A HAPPY COINCIDENCE—Gerri Leen
Magic and deception go hand in hand and few are as adept as the sorceress Lynna the Powerful.
HOW STANLEY SPENCER PAINTED THE COOKHAM RESURRECTION—Chris Barnham
Time travel is a tricky business at the best of times, but the real question is: if you accidentally altered something in the past, would you notice the change?
IN GLASS—Richard M. Ankers
Our species may change and evolve but somehow, through it all, matters of the heart will always endure.
THE HOMUNCULUS MISTAKE—Julie Dollar
The creation of new life is a tricky prospect. You never know what the final outcome may be.
TRANSMIT SOLDIER—A.T. Sayre
A war in the future where soldiers are transmitted across the galaxy...
AJ Larson grew up in a northern Alberta home that was dominated by the love of fantasy and science fiction, with ample time for writing during those long, harsh winters. Even after relocating from the prairies to the west coast, where the weather is infinitely better, Larson still spends most of her time with her head in the clouds and fingers on the keyboard.

K. I. Borrowman
K. I. Borrowman recently quit a lucrative international teaching career to become a starving writer, and is so far enjoying great success in this endeavor.
When she was in third grade, her teacher told her to “write what you know,” so from that point onwards K. I. Borrowman set out to experience as much as possible.
She has lived on five of the planet’s seven continents, earned two bachelor’s degrees, and hand-reared a human child. She has owned twenty-three different vehicles and lived in thirty-five different homes. She has climbed many mountains, dived many seas, and carried many back packs. She hopes to know more, and continue to write it.

Raised in New Hampshire, he lives in Brooklyn and likes to read in coffeehouses.
Dan was an academic but the sentences proved too long and the words too obscure. Northern Ireland is where he now lives. But he was born in England and raised in Byron’s home town, which the bard hated but Dan does not. They named every other road after Byron. As yet no roads are named after Dan but several children are.
He tries to write the kind of stories he wants to read and aims for readers to want to turn the page.
Dan’s work has featured in the Incubator, Storgy, the Dime Show Review and the horror magazine Devolution Z.
