Overview

Robots, aliens, vampires and evil corporations (wait, we already said vampires, didn't we) will thrill you in this collection of short stories.

SALE 39.99. A compliment from Becca's manager opens the door to new opportunities, but will Becca see her employer's true motives before it's too late?

A FIXED PERSPECTIVE. Years ago, Jonathan Lee had Cora Walker kicked off a project designed to help people see the future. Now she's uncovered a way to fix its most difficult problem - but will he believe her? And is she telling the truth?

THE SEVEN-YEAR GLITCH. Something is wrong with Mari's programming. She's thinking thoughts that belong to someone else. An underworld contact might offer her a solution, but the solution might get her decommissioned.

BLUTNACHT. In the midst of the horrors of World War II, a vampire takes steps to fight back against monsters...by finding new recruits.

HAUTE MESS. Even fashionistas get the climate change blues.

MOM. MOM. MOM. MOM. MOM. When his father is killed, Roland retreats into a digital world to leave behind his mother's grief. But the house computer isn't ready to let Roland succumb to his desire for escape.

THE TELL-TALE TECH. In this homage to Edgar Allan Poe, an inventor's partner tries to steal a special device. When the police show up, however, how much will the partner end up giving away?

SWEETHEART. Meeting with her former owner, a freed "companion robot" wonders what he wants from her - and exercises her free will when he makes his desires clear.

RESTAURANTS ARE RATED OUT OF FOUR STARS. A food critic sits down for a meal, only to notice the woman across the restaurant copying his order, course for course. Will the two diners connect, or watch each other from afar?

A STEP AHEAD. How much trust should humans place in technology's ability to come up with solutions to the environmental problems we cause?

ACE IN THE HOLE. Their mission doomed and their power supply failing, two space explorers encounter an alien civilization. Can they fix the shuttle's problems and return home? Or is partnering with the aliens the worst decision possible? Commissioned by Ingenius Theatre in Newcastle, UK.
