New Works By Previous Guests:
Another new one from Peter Servidio:
The world has gone cold. Now filled with sorry and desperation, man fights to survive. Can one stowaway on what he believes to be the last remaining vessels on earth change the future?
Marcus Wattle just wants to live. As the world is dying from the unending cold, he has a choice: die with the others who were not chosen to board the Arc, or fight his way on board and become a Stowaway. With the others who are now seen as criminals, Marcus must fight each day to survive and, at the same time, try and figure out how to get himself and his people a place among the civilians of the Arc.
Can he force the ship’s creator and its captain to see that all life is precious? Or will he and the other Stowaways die in the ship’s underbelly? It is up to Marcus to negotiate with Patterson and the others who live above. Will trading their services lead to their freedom?
And, from Aaron Hodges:
Help! My Wizard Mentor Had a Heart Attack and Now I’m Being Chased by a Horde of Giant Spiders!
Patrik Conroy has just been dragged through a portal into a magical, video game-like universe. Apparently, some wizard thinks he’s destined to save the world.
There’s just one problem: the wizard didn’t live long enough to tell him what he needed to save it from. Or that the resident giant spiders were friendly and just looking for a hug. Now the spiders are dead, the local villagers have lost their only source of income, and Patrik needs to pretend he doesn’t know how all this happened.
Tall order for a community college student in his fifth year of a three-year degree, who hasn’t played a video game in over a decade.
