"Surefire Means" by Brandon Barrows and Joel Cotejar. What if you were stranded on a hostile alien world? Would you go quietly into that good night? No...you'd search for any means of escape.
"Yours, Mine & Ours" by Ted Woods. Mankind's lone outpost in the stars is staffed by a man and woman who can't stand each other and the differences between two people escalate to the difference between life and death!
"A Place In History" by Brandon Barrows and Rowel Roque. Fame is a kind of immortality many search for, but there are others, as well. Be careful what you wish for!
"R-Net" by Jay Townsend. Technology created by man to serve man so they can create technology to serve man...at what point does the line get crossed and man begins serving technology?
"Lateral Murder" by Martin Brandt II and Cristian Navarro. Unchecked emotion can be a frightful thing, but emotion with no outlet at all can become downright nightmarish!
And a beautiful painted cover by Ionic!
