Captain Paul Coulter, commanding Space Fighter 308, 58th Squadron, 33rd Fighter Wing, glanced up out of his canopy in the direction indicated, and smiled to himself at the instinctive reaction. Nothing there but the familiar starry backdrop, the moon far down to the left. If the light wasnt right, a ship might ...

John Moralee FUTURE IMPERFECT A Collection of Science Fiction Stories Yellow Stars One night my sleep was disturbed by a thunderous boom. It rattled every window in my bedroom and sent my heart racing. I sat up, momentarily confused, my dreams swirling with reality in my head. For a second, I thought my mother was still there, taking me as a little girl for a long and sunny walk in the woods beyond our village. But then I remembered she had gone, and cold, hard reality slammed down. That joyous ...

Austin Aragon TRAVESTY Authors Note Writing is fun, getting paid for it is not. Or better said, its not easy whatsoever to make money off it, and more so its not really fun to turn a passion into a job. This book was rejected by numerous agents for being too controversial in todays subjective market. Well I suspect the other side of that coin is that I am also a new author, but I do like to think that they only mean this current novel is too radical or touchynot my writing So with a dead end ...

Praise for Ninefox Gambit Beautiful, brutal and full of the kind of off-hand inventiveness that the best SF trades in, Ninefox Gambit is an effortlessly accomplished SF novel. Yoon Ha Lee has arrived in spectacular fashion. Alastair Reynolds I love Yoons work Ninefox Gambit is solidly and satisfyingly full of battles and political intrigue, in a beautifully built far-future that manages to be human and alien at the same time. It should be a treat for readers already familiar with Yoons ...

Beside him, he heard a hint of a wheeze in Walkers breathing. His hay fever was bad this year. Court found it ironic that the kid was allergic to ...
