The Lord Archon, Enki, from the system Alpha Draconis, colonised the unchartered world of Agarta, after escaping the Alliance during the Great Battle for Alpha Draconis.

 

The residents of Agarta, a medieval society, called their planet, ‘home’. With his human servants at his side, Archon spread war across the planet. His most prized human servant Anu-Krai, King of the Knights of Anu, headed the conquest with another. Anu-Krai had been abducted as a child. He soon discovered a wonderous human woman who claimed to be the Earth itself. She told him his world was merely encased in a simulated prison; his entire universe, a façade. There was no escape, even in death.

 

He followed the seeds of truth before him, he yearned for it, suffering for his choices. His loyalties were tested. A planetary war, a galactic war, a universal war. In the end one must ask; how much are you willing to sacrifice, to save that which you love?

 

Author Aeon Solo is a new sci-fi / fantasy author. He is heavily into the styles of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. He loves to explore the weird and wonderful nature of the universe, transferring seeds of truth across his fictional stories.

 

Aeon hopes people will both enjoy and perhaps learn or gain a desire to learn the interesting concepts put forth in the stories. He doesn’t read, so it was a shock to him when he suddenly churned out these stories, pulling them from the ether somewhere. He hopes to publish more in the future.

 

‘There are great ideas undiscovered, breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of truths protective layers, there are places to go beyond belief’ – Neil Armstrong.

As he fled the Red Army in the winter of 1956, Zoltán Papp couldn’t have dreamt that his invention would spawn the greatest company ever seen. But even as his name adorned the world’s tallest tower, Papp had seen little of PapCorp’s riches. And he wasn’t the only one.

 

In the Manchester township of Rusholme, Minnie Brownlow had no interest in the Zoltán Papp Tower as it rose over the Bio-dome roofs. It was all she could do to avoid it, while a thousand miles south the Talavera family hadn’t seen the news for years. When finally, they returned from exile in the mountains, they found their home cut off by a PapCorp advert for aliens.

 

Hope came in the form of the Radical Alliance of Socialist and anti-Capitalist Associations on the Left, or RASCAL. But with PapCorp infiltrators everywhere, what hope was there?

 

PapRise straddles historical and futuristic fiction as it tells five stories bound up in PapCorp, the world’s greatest corporation.

 

Author Adam R. Mathews is a novelist and a teacher, a scientist and a cyclist. Equally at home managing language schools or running degrowth workshops, he is an incessant traveller and a keen localist.

 

After the concept of an all-pervasive corporation came to him while walking in Manchester’s Whitworth Park, Adam spent a decade stewing on his neo-liberal dystopia before he started to write. In that time, he lived across Europe, from Budapest to Madrid, immersing himself in the cultures, quirks and social movements of his adopted homes.

 

Adam weaves his experiences into his writing, to make fiction that challenges the shortcomings of neo-liberalism. His first novel Pap came out in 2016, but the foundation tale PapRise is the book he always wanted to write. He recently moved back to the UK in order to promote his work.

Maybe a night in the woods isn’t going to see the justice Jack is planning? In the aftermath Will and Anjali find their relationship pushed to the limits.

 

Now it’s Jack’s job to bring them together but will the Angels help or hinder?

 

Author Heather Jadhav grew up in West Yorkshire. Coming from the days when you made your own entertainment, she spent many hours tramping the moors, woods and riverbanks.

 

She always wanted to become a nurse and in 1979 crossed the Pennines and trained at Blackburn Royal Infirmary following in her mother s footsteps. While still a student she met her husband and went on to raise a family in the Ribble Valley. In 2014, after thirty-four years working for the NHS, she decided it was time for a change of direction and joined her husband in enjoying the freedom his retirement afforded.

 

From childhood, Heather has always had stories playing over in her head and now had the opportunity to spend time capturing them and turning the idle thoughts into something more concrete. Her literary heroes are the Brontes and Terry Pratchett, which probably explains a lot. Having travelled widely, read extensively and worked as a practice nurse, Heather has drawn her ideas from a wide panorama of places and life s bittersweet experiences. These are sprinkled with a little mysticism, a smidgen of fantasy and a dry sense of humour.

Ruby’s life is changed forever when, one night, she stumbles across the gorgeous Kieran Ashaik. Almost immediately she is in danger by association, stalked and threatened by those who want Kieran dead, not just because of his bad attitude and violent, unpredictable nature. He is part of an ancient species of Phoenix, capable of transforming into terrifying predators; a species Ruby soon realises she is part of.

 

She is then presented with a choice: to follow this dark stranger and his family into a dangerous unfamiliar world of love, lies and killing, or risk dying alone without ever knowing her true potential.

Her choice will determine whether she will ever live again.
