Medicine is on the verge of conquering disease and aging. Of making it possible to clone ourselves and make our children super beings.

Or morlocks.

What will the world be like when science conquers life itself?

About the Authors

Chuck Anderson

Chuck Anderson is a painter, publisher, and writer. He lives in Colorado, and he has a weakness for muscle cars. Chuck is retired from a job of 22 years and like the name Voldemort, "You-Know-Who" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named," he never wants to speak of his past career out-loud ever again. Chuck can be found at madcow.press.


M.L. Buchman

M.L. Buchman started the first of over 50 novels and even more short stories while flying from South Korea to ride his bicycle across the Australian Outback. All part of a solo around-the-world trip (a mid-life crisis on wheels) that ultimately launched his writing career.

In addition to science fiction, he also writes thrillers, fantasy, and military romantic suspense books. His titles have been named Barnes & Noble and NPR "Top 5 of the Year" and 3-time Booklist "Top 10 of the Year." In among his career as a corporate project manager he has: rebuilt and single-handed a fifty-foot sailboat, both flown and jumped out of airplanes, and designed and built two houses.

He is now making his living as a full-time writer on the Oregon Coast assisted by his beloved wife. He remains constantly amazed at what can be done with a degree in Geophysics. You may keep up with his writing and receive exclusive content by subscribing to his newsletter at www.mlbuchman.com.

Ron Collins

Ron Collins writes across the spectrum of speculative fiction, as well as the occasional thriller or crime story. His latest SF series, Stealing the Sun is available from Skyfox publishing.

His short fiction has received a Writers of the Future prize and a CompuServe HOMer Award. His short story "The White Game" was nominated for the Short Mystery Fiction Society's 2016 Derringer Award.

He has contributed a hundred or so short stories to professional publications such as Analog, Asimov's, and several other magazines and anthologies (including several editions of the Fiction River Anthology Series).

He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and has worked to develop avionics systems, electronics, and information technology before chucking it all to write full-time–which he now does from his home in the shadows of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

Duncan Ellis

Duncan Ellis is a novelist and software engineer living in Portland, Oregon. He grew up in Yorkshire where he learned to drink tea and complain about cricket, and lived in several cities in England before moving to the US in 2001.

He has written many novel drafts under the auspices of National Novel Writing Month, but his first published book was "Livia and the Corpuscles", an adventure of Steampunk Rome.

Duncan started writing after he began his career as a software developer in Nottingham, making serial fiction for his co-workers. He took a break from narrative fiction after moving to Surrey, but continued to invent fictional elements in roleplaying and collaborative games. He just couldn't stop making things up.

He is currently working on "A Turquoise Song", a science fiction mystery set in a near-future Portland featuring robots, ninjas, and synaesthesia.

Joel Ewy

Joel Ewy is centrally located for your convenience, has a wife and two kids, and took the Liberal Arts concept way more seriously than it was probably ever intended to be. He's a digital philosopher, and also fixes computers, sometimes for pay.

He's just irresponsible enough to start spending a little less time doing that and more time writing, and making weird, anachronistic computer-based art pieces. Joel has an extensive collection of classic computers from the late '70s to the early '90s and beyond, but he's still looking for that free Atari ST to fall out of the sky. Use your best faux German accent, or pretend you're Dr. Strangelove when you say his last name, and you might get it right. (Hint: Ay-Vee)

You can also find him in the Alternative Truths Anthology.


Maquel A. Jacob

Maquel A. Jacob writes gender shifter social science fiction that taps into how we define ourselves as a species. The theme is well defined in the new six book series Curve of Humanity. She also writes in other veins of Sci Fi like her space opera The Core Trilogy, class warfare within a vampire society in Blood Doctrine, and touches the dark side in her collection of horror shorts, Welcome Despair. You can find out more at her work on her website www.maquelajacob.com, as well as Facebook, Goodreads, and other places.

All of Maquel A. Jacobs's books are available in eBook and print through a variety of online vendors such as Amazon, Draft2Digital, and others. She loves honest feedback regarding her works and gets ecstatic about meeting fans at book signings and conventions.

M. E. Owen

M.E. Owen writes science fiction, fantasy and crime, often in the same story.

She lives on the wet side of Washington state, and when not writing, plays with honking big transportation geodatabases, occasionally kayaks and more occasionally throws knives (not all at once, but that would be cool).

Her short work has also appeared in Abyss & Apex, Fireside Fiction, Fiction River, Flash Fiction Online, and elsewhere. Her debut novel, Survival Instincts, a science fiction noir, is scheduled for publication in 2018. You can keep up with her at www.MEOwen.com.
