A novel by Karen L. Abrahamson
Seven years ago, a night of flames destroyed everything Ressana loved in the city of Noralla. Now she hides as a village healer far from those who might recognize her true nature. But the night of three moons brings Norallan guardsmen seeking those of her kind. Captured by Prince Dak, the only man she ever loved, Ressana will learn that the fate of all Noralla lies in her hands—the crystal-bound hands of the last crystal courtesan.
Karen L. Abrahamson once again creates a vivid world of magic and danger where old evil abides in the bodies of the dead and living Gods ride the three moons.
A novella by Jay Bowers
Young Wulf Gott is told he must relocate from the Northern wilderness that is his lifelong home, to live with his estranged grandmother in the inner city of Chicago, Illinois. His unnatural grandmother, Nora, is an extreme liberal, and plans for Wulf to be a “white ambassador” in the all black Hyde Park High.
Expectations are that he will not last long, either in the school, or on the streets of that urban killing ground. Wulf surprises them all!
A short story by Stephanie Writt
What does a twelve-year-old chess tournament junkie do when their manager/legal guardian discovers a long lost relative, eighty million times removed, that pops up and says: Hey, I want to spend time with a total stranger that I might be less related to than Jesus? And a kid?
And where is this relative? In the middle of nowhere! In an actual, honest to God, log-freaking-cabin covered in miles of snow. And no internet!
Yeah, that’s a whole lotta nope right there.
Hopefully this “relative” just wants an autograph and civilization can be returned to before any lasting harm is done.
Everyone knows that boredom kills kids.
