La Serie V

By: Valentino

Siendo niño viajé mucho por toda América, y a decir verdad no sabría explicar el porqué de este privilegio, salvo que la mayoría de veces solía figurar como “invitado” en tales travesías. Fui, para no traicionar mi educación norteamericana, el centro de las “situaciones”, aunque realmente nunca deseé que fuera así. Debo reconocer que tuve la buena fortuna de haber estudiado en un colegio donde los estudiantes extranjeros predominábamos y eso influyó bastante en que me co...

-Tiene forma de cigarro –decía una. -Es enorme –argumentaba la otra. -Esa nave, o lo que sea, según mi cálculo, tiene el tamaño de una pequeña ciudad –agregó otro que dijo ser ingeniero civil-. Es una construcción imposible para que sea el producto de nuestra tecnología actual. -Jamás lo hubiera creído a no ser que lo haya visto con mis propios ojos –verberó una más cayendo al piso con las manos juntas-. Y ahora que lo veo, se siente como una experiencia religio...

Bruma

By: Valentino

El dolor no cesaba de martirizarme y otra vez volvió a mí el recuerdo de Míster Hastings. Con gran asombro, descubrí al Bombón Playero encallado cerca del aeropuerto de Roatán, isla abajo. Subí por la proa enterrada en la arena y examiné cada uno de sus rincones. No había rastro de Míster Hastings. Ya en la cabina, pude dar con la bitácora del barco. «Hace treinta años que cerca de estas aguas perdí a mi amigo Narciso Way en las fauces del Gran Segueta», estaba an...

El eco de las balas resonaba en las paredes de la cueva.–¿Sabe qué, profesor? ¡Vea qué triste ironía! Hoy me doy cuenta de que no sénada de la vida.

Hasán se contuvo. Humo y fuego podían observarse más allá del pasaje; supuseque los mercenarios no podrían encontrarnos, pues por sus gritos de algarabía,pensé que quizá celebraban el reparto de algún botín. Vi a Hasán adelantarsehacia la fisura.–¡Espera, Hasán! –le susurré agitado. Éste, dubitativo, se detuvo–. No temas. Yperdóname lo que te voy a decir, ya que contraviene tus creencias: nosotros notememos a las maldiciones. Tememos, eso sí, a las malas acciones de los ...

Tomorrow it Rains : All the Dying Flowers

By: Dylan Rush

In an apocalyptic Nebraska, where it hasn't rained in years, water has become a valuable commodity. At a time when no one can be trusted, 16-year-old Rabbit, is about to find out, just how far the government will go, to reserve resources for those they deem worthy- and for those they do not. Its up to Rabbit, and her father, to find a way to survive, in a chaotic world filled with thirst.

It’s been four years since the last rainfall graced mother earth with its presence. Crops have withered away, wildlife has diminished, and the world has gone crazy with thirst.

As the dark side crescent of the third moon looped beneath the nose of the shuttle, the small barren moon of Petra appeared in view.

"I hope you slept well." Harris looked up, it was Peters who was just putting a cup of coffee down in the table. Peters pulled out a chair and sat down. "I suppose you want some serious explanations today." said Peters. Harris deliberately took this time spreading the marmalade on his Mallory bread, he cut a small piece off and slowly eat it. Peters was patent and sipped his coffee. What Harris wanted, he complained to Peters, was a quiet life, he did not want to know...

With that nauseous feeling you get on re-entry the decent shuttle landed at the main space port on Morstan. Harris looked out the side window as the shuttle was gently towed from the runway across to the parking apron by a large support tractor. A waiting passenger tunnel reached out from the terminal building to automatically connect with the shuttle. The terminal building was simple and plain with none of the flashing lights or gaudy colours of some space ports. This ...

NumbaCruncha

NumbaCruncha begins with a chilling peek into the near future, when Sebastian and Jarek, now in their eighties, confront a particularly vile religious autocrat, whose reign of terror has led to the destruction of their laboratories, but not their secret weapon. We then take a thousand year leap to a future city state in which the human aptitude for duplicitous and unjust social schemes has reached its logical culmination in Oasis, a flesh-crawlingly evil dystopia rul...

1: Somewhere in Far North Queensland Towards the End of the Twenty-first Century. ‘Make sure there’s nothing left to salvage, or tomorrow there’ll be nothing left of you.’ The priest’s twisted smile, more venomous than his customary frown, underlined the threat. Ignoring the nervous nods of his sweating acolytes, he turned, raised an imperial finger in warning and waddled back to his limousine, slashing the air with his stick to ward off mute offers of assistance from...
