Short Story Content Descriptions:

Issue One - "Executable Forgiveness" (Drama, Sci-fi) - Estin is the first robot to be given agency; that is to say, given full human rights. However, his project is called into question after he's hacked and his integrity is compromised. Can he convince his wife it was only a one-off?

Issue Two - "Love on a Bed of Leaves and Letters" (Drama) - Julius Pessoa struggles with his guilt over the death of his young wife and his indecision to receive the gift she has left him in her craft room. Fall is a time of melancholy, but it is also one of promised renewal...

Issue Three - "In the Garden" (Sci-fi, Time Travel) - Dr. Leandra Hayes meets with her long-time colleague and ex-lover, Terence Whitaker, to approve a new companion-model robot he's about to release. When Lean meets Ema though, her understanding of reality is ripped apart.

Issue Four - "Forget Me Not" (Sci-Fan, Tragedy) - Spomenka and The Bounty Hunter fall in love on the dark-side of a terraformed Mars. However, disappointment and bloodshed are just around the corner.

Issue Five - "Cloven Dreams" (Tragedy) - These five sentences were written for a flash contest titled "Break My Heart".

Issue Six - "Penny" (Mystery) - Blue and Penny grow up together, bonding over fairies and magical gardens. Blue struggles to maintain that lifelong connection as they get older, but  Penny has a secret that will make or break Blue's understanding of the word "lifelong".

Issue Seven - "John Ghost" (Humor, Sci-fi) - A crude take on the traditional ghost story. Poops are made, phones are dropped, lessons are learned. An on-the-clock mechanic realizes that cheating the system might be inviting the company of strange bathroom-fellows.

Issue Eight - "The Mold" (Tragedy) - Fraya wants to be more than just a friend, so she makes Laura Lane into more than her best friend. She turns Laura Lane into a fallen angel, thus transforming herself into God's written word. Of course all Hell breaks loose.

A world is nothing without sacrifice. Leaders sacrifice face and honor, people sacrifice money and power, and others sacrifice their lives to sustain the balance of their world. It takes only a moment of negligence to set an imbalance to a world, and sets a domino effect of perturbing consequences to lay destruction in its path.

It happens every year in Altair known as Amyths where the story of two lovers are commemorated for being reunited by a bridge across the milky way. However, every two years a single person goes missing, and every two years a new tale is spun.

Mark sidestepped another zombie and pulled the trigger downing another zombie before continuing to run. Then out of the corner of his eye, Mark thought he saw a blind open slightly in the window of a grey house on his right. His head jerked to the house as he saw the blind close a second later. Mark took a chance and ran with Rachel up to the front door of the grey house.

Mark pounded on the door and shouted, “Please let us in!”

No reply came and Rachel tugged on his arm, they turned to face their threat. More than sixty zombies where coming towards them and with sadness in his heart, Mark had to accept that this is where he died. Smacking the door one last time Mark’s voice trembling said “Please. At least let her in.”

Shocked Rachel turned to meet Mark’s sad gaze “No Mark I’m not leaving you.”

“Rachel there’s nowhere for us to go and the thought of at least you living makes me happy” Mark replied. Lifting his gun, he shot the closest zombie, not 10 feet away. Pulling the trigger, again and again, Mark took down zombie after zombie. Finally, the gun clicked multiple times confirming to Mark and Rachel it was empty. Zombies continued to close in on them with more on their way. Mark knew he didn’t have enough bullets for all of them.

“I’m sorry Rachel I wasn’t able to protect you,” Mark said as his head and heart sank low.

The Journal of M.A.N Volume 1 follows Mark and Rachel as they try to stay alive in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Along the way, relations will grow and some will break. The only thing that's for sure with zombies is that death will follow; for humans, the undead, or both!!!

Sinopsis

Keinginannya sederhana. Hampir—mungkin sama dengan manusia lainnya. Ingin damai. Ingin bahagia bersama orang-orang yang dicintai. Ingin melindungi kehidupan kecil yang dimiliki. Dan ya, melihat cahaya tanpa perlu mengkhawatirkan perbedaan.

Bermula dari keinginannya itu, sebuah pilihan diambil. Benar dan salah. Benar menurutnya sendiri. Salah dalam sudut pandang normatif kebanyakan manusia.

Apakah perbedaan, lantas membuatnya berbeda dalam mewujudkannya? Pantaskah bila perbedaan dijadikan alasan untuk menyingkirkan satu dengan yang lainnya? Lalu, seenak hati menutup mata pada mereka yang berbeda warna dan golongan—yang membuat bulu bergidik saat mendengar namanya yang sebenarnya tak kau pahami dengan benar.

Apapun kau menyebutnya, keinginan makhluk hidup di muka bumi ini tetaplah sama. Kedamaian.

Dan tanpa disadarinya, sesuatu yang berharga telah datang sebelum ia sendiri mengharapkannya. Dapatkah ia menggenggamnya lebih lama? Setidaknya, sampai ia tahu, bahwa ia tak akan lama di sini.

Sayangnya, hidup yang dijalaninya bersinggungan pada roda-roda yang bergerak berlawanan dengan yang diinginkannya. Kemudian, sekali lagi, menjauhkannya pada harapan yang meski ia tahu fana, tapi mampu membuatnya mengenali makna kata “cinta”.

Akankah ia berjuang hingga akhir?

Adakah tangan-tangan yang akan datang membantunya?

Lalu, mungkin... melihatkan dunia kecil yang ingin ditinggalinya dengan damai...

Synopsis:

Marra Maerkel, daughter of a prominent family in Villa Avenue, went missing only to be found dead and stuffed in a suitcase. Weird markings were carved on her body. She was severed multiple times and was missing a tongue. She was perceived by the public as a pious woman, well-mannered and gentle. But like everybody else she had a secret that she kept even in death.

Author's note:

The story is written in multiple characters' perspective. It goes without saying that their judgement and interpretation of events vary independently. One might see white another would see red or blue or purple and on it goes.

P.S. Somebody told me that the book contains serious issues that I seem to glorify. The thing is that, I am not one of the characters. I wrote them, yes, but I am not them. If somebody glorifies an issue in the book then that's the way the character thinks. The character is designed that way, not me. We only read the characters' thought and what they do or what they did. We do not read what "I" thought or what "I" do or what "I" did.

I do not glorify sensitive issues or anything of that sort written within the book. That's a character's perception of life, not my own.

Nonetheless I seek to forewarn the reader; the book contains issues like rape, religion, sexual desire, existence of life, homicide, betrayal, violence, organized crime, crooked politicians, cults and dark thoughts.
