No one does, I suppose. It's a natural human instinct to keep on living. But that doesn't stop the hands of fate. The hands that, as soon as their cold fingertips brush against your skin, you're gone.
The hands of the ones they call Angels.
They aren't real angels. Real angels don't exist. Just as God doesn't exist. There are no benevolent beings with crystalline white wings and halos burning with heavenly fire - there is no supreme existence sitting on a golden throne watching from above. Not anymore, at least. If they ever did exist then we killed them long ago and as punishment, the universe created the Angels that we know now.
It was an accident. As are most things these days. Three hundred and then some years ago, back when people still went to church and prayed to whatever deity they had conjured up in their minds, it happened. The stories say it was a joint effort of an elite handful of scientists gathered from around the world. They had meant well; s

Sitting like some gigantic marble on the desert sands, its black and gold surface gleaming in the light of three suns, Calypso extended a slim, narrow ramp out from its lower hull until it touched the ground. Each segment of the walkway locked into place one after the other, giving the impression of growth rather than simply being extended from the ship. A round hatch then irised open where the base of the ramp met the hull. From the outside it would have taken a very keen observer to spot where the hatch was located, so seamlessly did it merged with the surrounding hull plating.
Cera stepped out of the airlock first (as was her right as captain of the ship and leader of the landing party) and was immediately followed by Nessa, who had her disruptor in hand. Cera walked along the ramp with a visible spring in her step; the result of the planet’s gravity and not youthful zest. After them came Garadun, Sajeen and Magik,

Caesar kicked MechaGodzilla in the abdomen as he got up, causing him to react with is own fury, but MechaGodzilla’s reflexes were too slow for the wrath of Caesar.

Conventia, Star Port 17
The star port had been locked down as soon as the Control Brain’s forces struck. The few security guards were easily dealt with, and soldiers were systematically destroying civilian ships to keep them from escaping the planet, supposing anybody got through the perimeter set up around the star port. On one of the upper floors in a lounge, one of these soldiers had decided to take the opportunity to sample some of the fine beverages stored for some of the VIP passengers who passed through. He sat back and watched as pillars of smoke rose from different points out in the vast city through a wide window.
Tilting his head back, this soldier lifted a bottle of wine that cost more than most middle class citizens could make in a year and tipped it towards

It was a cold morning when Amilia found herself wandering through the streets. She tried to keep her steps even, but haste caused every third step to be quicker than the others. A horse whinnied, and she tensed as if the animal had set off an alarm. She’d need a horse of her own, and thought of stealing this very one. That’s what thieves do, right? Unfortunately, following two sets of rules is what got her into this mess.
Her feet led her to Daniel’s doorstep without any thought of her own, and now she stared up at the building like it was a sign. That feeling of hope and nervous stirred her stomach like a storm. She glanced back as the sun slowly stretched onto the morning street. Maybe she shouldn’t, but felt no other choice than to knock on Daniel’s door.
The door opened a moment later to a very confused Daniel. “Uh, come in,” he mumbled, and stepped back for her. Amilia paced inside, turned sharply at the e

Honestly…it’s as good of time as any to mark the beginning of our first conflict with alien life, although as with most things in life it is not that simple. There are a few us who are …unfortunate enough to have survived long enough to know of the events that lead to Earth fighting on the frontlines of a war that wasn’t our own. That is where we’ll begin...

Imagine, if you will, a shining city of men in red coats—redder than the blood spilled on the war torn streets, and ladies in pristine, snow white garments. Now, imagine the day the sky turned to ash.
This is my first memory.
That morning had been a cold one, February slush still marking the street in drifts. Shimmering skyscrapers stood tall, glass sides glinting like diamond panes.
The city was deserted, for the most part, as I looked down from my high-rise window. Radproof, of course. Only the best for a general’s son.
Had my father been a smarter man, or perhaps more humble, we would’ve quit the city as well. However, pride trumps intelligence, a fact I learned very early in my life.
I was born and bred as a leader, and had my father not led a war—genocide, more like it—I’d be a general now.
That I could turn back time is my dearest wish.

Portal to Gaming is the first story in my six book series, Arch of Fantasy. Arch of Fantasy is a science-fiction/fantasy blend involving space travel, multiple worlds, and the fate of the universe hanging in the balance. The series itself features several different heroes, each with specific goals and tasks.
Portal to Gaming introduces three of those heroes, nineteen-year-olds Fen Willows and his best friends, twin brothers Daniel and Wolfgang Evans. Fen is the only child of Farold and Victorie Amie Willows, two universally renowned alien archaeologists and pioneers in the field. Set in a shining distant universe, mankind has achieved all kinds of wonderful, beautiful things, such as space travel and equality for all. Life on Earth itself is idyllic, peaceful . . . and not for Fen. He longs for travel and excitement, anything to distance and distract himself from the painful break-up with his boyfriend.

Conventia, Imperial Irken Territory
Bounty Hunter Convention Center 64
The Empire tolerated the presence of the least favored warriors of the galaxy on Conventia for one reason: a lot of them often did jobs that benefited the Imperial Regime. Dozens of convention centers were set aside for gatherings of bounty hunters, mercenaries, slave raiders, pirates and assassins to come together as both individuals and whole guilds to conduct business on what became ‘neutral ground’. These buildings were like an overloading energy cell, just waiting for somebody to piss off somebody else and start a fire fight in the middle of Conventia; there were more guards posted to these areas specifically to prevent this.
Good thing too, because if there were a few le

After a quick nod of approval, the man decided to examine her fruits with senses other than sight, and Dara didn’t appreciate it.

Nobody notices the thumb scanners anymore. They’re on every door and gate. We are promised that they ensure complete security. They’re also put in place by our government.
What most people don’t know is that they read much more than our fingerprints. They take a miniscule blood sample, check our pulses, and analyze us for diseases.
Well, one disease in particular.
For years, ever since the first doctor accidentally injected himself with FOX-73 and released it to the world, we’ve been watched for disease. Even our HoloWatches are a method of surveillance. They also take our pulses, blood pressure, and location. In some cases they can even be used for video and audio feed of our location. How do you feel

The boy fought through the crudely reproduced vegetation for grueling hours upon unbearable hours. The air thick with the smell of rust. The process became somewhat more bearable once the boy made a point of refraining from habitually checking his watch. Once he lost his bearing on time, the boy found himself returning from his daydreams only as he stumbled forward in the absence of the supportive pipes he had been feeling for. To confirm that the exhaustive trek had truly ended, the boy allowed his flashlight a faint murmur of light and peered squinting into the darkness. Once the boy had determined that the black that he inspected was empty (and ruminated on the fact that there likely was nothing to see for thousands of miles in some of the directions he looked) he produced his compass from his left pocket.
