You can click on each of the stories below to take you to an excerpt. Read and Prosper.

OPERATION MARS: In this story a life is sacrificed for the world, as a scientist questions whether
it is not just best for humanity to start over.

STAR BURN BRIGHT: What comes out of this story is hope – incredible hope! – for a man who
believes there is something else out there bigger than the world he finds
himself in and has now outgrown.

DARK CALLS THE DARK: Even in the darkest of human beings there may be a

light shining. And it shines every time a person looks apart from their wants
to help someone else.

GIRL LOST: There is a crippling fear that may steal a person’s voice. But the hero of this story
speaks up.

FAITH: What can be said about extremism but that it is the inability to consider an
opponent’s view?

A SCARLET VIRUS, A SCARLET WORLD: We become what we fear. Maybe the
moral is not to exaggerate suffering. This story encourages the observer to
look again.

THE MIND THAT FATHER MADE: How important are a man’s
memories?

WITCH CHILD: We see how uncomfortably similar one character’s sexual sin is to the
protagonist’s revenge, hence forcing us to ask the question, “Just who is the
villain in this story?”
