The Failed Cities: Hath a Darkness 08 – Doctor Lady

A woman with no name and a past filled with mistakes to atone for. If you’re hurt or sick on the wrong side of the river, the Doctor Lady will fix you up. Tender mercies are the hardest commodities to come by in the Failed Cities, but there are stockpiles if you know where to look…

Naught But Ash

Nothin’ like a good hangin’ to bring folks together. ‘Frontier justice’ is what they called it back in the day. Brutal, maybe, but efficient. Those days are back, but with a twist.

Strangers just ain’t what they used to be.

Penny Ante

It’s just a friendly, low stakes game of five card draw. Sure, it’s a weird place for poker, but don’t let that bother you. We don’t bet much because we don’t have much. We’re a little picky about who we let sit in, but it looks like you’ll meet the qualifications, and we need some new blood in the game. You in?

Full Throttle Space Tales #3: Space Grunts!

Mark your calendars! On May 14th, 2009 you will be able to get your hands on a new anthology, “Full Throttle Space Tales #3: Space Grunts,” edited by Dayton Ward. The part that really has us excited is that it contains a story by Anne Stringer and Jason McDowell.

The book is edited by Dayton Ward, best known for his Star Trek novels. He also wrote one of the stories.

Anne and Jason wrote a story called “Flashback.” You all know how good Anne’s writing is. Jason is a terrific writer, and has real war experience from his tour in Iraq. They came up with a piece about a former soldier who goes on the run for murder, and winds up in a mercenary team on a far distant colony planet. They were happy with how it turned out, and apparently so was Mr. Ward.

Anne has written many of our stories here on Variant Frequencies, and Jason wrote the Parsec Award nominated “Sacrifice.”

Here is the full list of authors and their stories in the book:

Derek Tyler Attico, “Blowback”

Robin Wayne Bailey, “Shin-Gi-Tai”

Kirsten Beyer, “Widow’s Weeds”

David Boop, “The Thing With Private Leon’s Face”

John Coffren, “Across the Endless Sea”

Jeff D. Jacques, “Rush”

Jean Johnson, “It’s Not a Game”

Alan L. Lickiss, “Granny’s Grunts”

Julie McGalliard, “98 Hill”

Nayad A. Monroe, “An Assessment of the Incident At Camp Righteous”

Scott Pearson, “Finders Keepers”

Irene Radford, “Price of Command”

Selina Rosen, “Unchained”

Bradley H. Sinor and Susan P. Sinor, “Who Stand and Wait”

Anne Stringer and Jason McDowell, “Flashback”

James Swallow, “Target Market”

Geoffrey Thorne, “Truth Metric”

Dayton Ward, “A Fresh Perspective”

Prisoners

A few weeks from retirement, a scientist looks back at her wasted life with regret. Now, at the end of her career, she is offered a chance to make a real difference to someone. But she’s been safely sheltered for so long… will she take the risk of a lifetime?

All The Time

The watchmaker’s shop is filled with timepieces of all kinds, from the majestic grandfather clock to the most delicate pocketwatch: all the time in the world. But it’s not the many clocks adorning the walls that give him eternity. Or is it?

Waiting in line is an unfortunate reality in modern life. When Frank McMurtry finds himself in a mysterious line with an eclectic group of strangers, he doesn’t want to be there…but is it better to stay, or walk away?
