Kasha Chatham, Alien Fighter-Person, by Katherine Sanger
Oh my god, let me tell you, it was so totally drama! One minute we were just sitting there at the café, drinking our non-fat sugar-free French vanilla lattes, and the next, wham, it was total alien invasion!  And Bruce was just vaporized, like he wasn’t even there.  Just a puff of smoke.  Not even ...

When the ship crash-landed on the blue and green planet, we thought, at first, that a terrible tragedy had befallen us, and we had failed. * * * But then we learned that our mission was complete. * * * Like the youths of Athena sent to the mighty Minotaur we were to be the ...

The Day of the Kudzu, by William Suboski 4

The Day of the Kudzu, by William Suboski
“Remember the senator who was attacked by Triffids?” He caught me unawares; he always does. He only shares a few stories a year, always on the trail, never at the Fire Watch. And always after dinner, when I am cleaning up. He leans back against the tree, stirs the bowl of his pipe and relights ...

Detective Lace zipped up her uniform and stepped into her hovercraft. Her suit was a single one-piece, skin-tight, navy blue, stretching from her ankles to her head.  She pulled the hood over her hair; it clung to her scalp like a diving cap.  It was thin as a ply of toilet paper – and one ...

Hard Suit Lock, by Sean Monaghan
Andreas smacked into some tubes on the Donkicong’s fuselage, then clipped the edge of the airlock and bounced away slowly.

Last, by Gerry Huntman

Last, by Gerry Huntman
He didn’t remember his name, but he was sure he once had one. It disturbed him that his memory was faulty and his thinking was so unclear. He could smell burning wire, which indicated internal damage — this caused him to react quickly, as his life depended on swift action. He picked himself up from ...

Seeker of Vengeance, by Alva J. Roberts 2

Seeker of Vengeance, by Alva J. Roberts
Thorlin struggled forward, the marble floor beneath him hard and unforgiving; he felt weak and cold. Blood covered his face and chest, most of it his own. He had tried… tried to protect the Dragonstone. He fought them, but he was not strong enough to do his duty. Ilerya, Goddess of Light, had to understand ...
