Short Stories

Robert Moriyama
Al Majius must deal with a tiny little world-threatening problem caused by the secret weapon conjured by the College Masters. And Githros can't help him with this one…

Atraxes the Bold
Sohrab Koohpaima
Atraxes, the bravest of the brave, must risk everything to destroy the Leviathan before it can crush the city and all who dwell within. All he asks is to stand out from the crowd just once before he dies.

Chris Harris

Mark Griswold
In the future, celebrities won't be a dime a dozen — but their copies might be treated as if they were.

Raising Father Kilpatrick

Jack and his Uncle Lupus dig up an old friend of the 'family'. But Father K. is a bit peeved — he's been buried for a long time!

Songs of Steam Lungs (Part 1)
D. D. H. Lee
War is hell. But for a Wright or a Smith, learning to listen to the metal could make things a lot easier.

The Day the Leash Gave Way
Trent Zelazny

The Man With Two Minds
Donald Sullivan
Jake Stewart has something on his mind. Or perhaps that should be 'someone IN his mind'. Between that, saving the world, and getting his girlfriend back, he's really feeling the pressure.
