Introducing Chronicle Worlds: Feyland

Chronicle Worlds Feyland Cover

Imagine if you will, a world of the future. A world where rich kids are chipped to run automated houses and fly in grav-powered limos while poor kids watch their families dissolve into poor health and struggle to manage the bare necessities. The only thing that brings these groups together is the VirtuMax corporation, an […]

The Expocalypse Arrives!

Taste Makers Cover

“The Taste Makers serves up an apocalypse easily worthy of The Joker’s most diabolical of schemes.  Frater executes The Gotham/NYC food scene with a savvy panache and a spicy menace that, pardon the pun, cuts like a knife.  This is one weird serving of an Apocalypse that’s singular, and frightening, in vision.  Try a slice […]

Reader’s Advisory: The Immortality Chronicles

Immortality Chronicles Cover

Mortality is every bit as metaphysical a concept as the human race has managed to conceive. What is it to be alive? What does […]

And Now, A Singularity!

The Legacy Human by Susan Kay Quinn What would you give to live forever? Seventeen-year-old Elijah Brighton wants to become an ascender—a post-Singularity human/machine hybrid—after all, they’re smarter, more enlightened, more compassionate, and above all, achingly beautiful. But Eli is a legacy human, preserved and cherished for his unaltered genetic code, just like the rainforest […]

Reader Advisory: AW: Medium Talent

Hell, forget about […]
