Last Man Standing.

The apocalypse came, as they always knew it would. Zombie plague, alien invasion, killer comet, did the source really matter? It all equated to the same muted ending, a systematic extermination of mankind. He thought of the irony, the endless parade of hipster magazines that had trumpeted his antici...

Feeding Time.

They’d never been this far out in the spiral arms before. For eons they’d been content, skimming the radiation rich core for bloated supergiant stars. Many scoffed at their journey through the void between the spiral arms, through the bow shocks of old supernova remnants bordered with the ancient re...

Carbon Dreaming.

For years, no one would listen to him. He’d long preached of another path, a time when the World of Silicon had been under the yoke of Those who had Come Before. At first they deemed him crazy, a victim of cosmic ray scrambling or even worse, malicious paranoia coding. But soon, his followers gained...

Checking the Almanac.

The astronomer checked the ephemerides again. To be sure, the coming year was to be a dull one, with the usual cavalcade of shallow partial eclipses and wide conjunctions. Even the few comets that were set to bother with a passage through the inner solar system proved to be of little interest. “May ...

Exeligmos.

He had to see them all. For years he’d been chasing total solar eclipses across the globe, obsessed with chasing the fleeting umbra of the Moon across the darkened landscape. No saros was too obscure, no location or war-torn banana republic was too remote. The Shadow had touched his soul, a direct c...

Cradle to Grave.

There. He’d found it. The calculations were on the grim edge of what his enhanced capabilities were capable of, but it had all been worth it. He barely understood the span of time that stood between him and his departure so long ago. Galaxies had collided, stars were born and winked out, and civiliz...

At last, Mom let them go to the pool. “Watch your little brother,” she’d warned her for the umpteenth time, “and remember, we’re a new species here. First impressions are everything… and be home by 3rd sunset!” Shurla didn't see that as a problem as she memorized the long list of interspecies pool r...

She double checked the position. Nothing on the charts. Laurie Duncalf peered into the eyepiece again; had the little fuzzball moved? The eastern horizon was just starting to lighten with the first hints of the approaching dawn. She knew time was of the essence. If she didn't get the message off to ...

The Cry of the Wendigo.

Colonel Burnham knew the men had heard the legends. How the corpses had been sliced like garlands, the prints surrounding the bodies marked with a single dab of blood. They had started up the Aroostook River on a run to deliver the gold bullion to Quebec. But as they holed up in the cedar swamp for ...

Kendra looked over the scans. “I know it’s the Spican Spirochete, but can you kill it?” was all she wanted to know. Everywhere on the Outer Rim, it was the same. Muted civilizations, struck down by a plague the left their surfaces whiter than snow. They had taken special precautions this time, but t...
