Description de l’éditeur
Baker's Dozen is a collection of thirteen of the best science fiction and fantasy stories by Scott W. Baker. From space opera to urban fantasy, near future to zombie apocalypse, there are stories for every appetite.
"Poison Inside the Walls" (Writers of the Future award winner!): On a planet devastated by war, Ashia must find a way to battle ferocious aliens, her own past, and her son's self-destructive tendencies to protect both her society and her family from destruction.
"Leech Run": What happens when a spaceship transports thirty-two mutants capable of draining all of the energy the ship uses to keep them alive? What happens when the captain only counts thirty-one of those passengers in his hold?
"Ten Seconds": If a grade school child could see ten seconds into his own future, would that be a blessing or curse?
"Call Me Z": In a society that has survived the zombie apocalypse relatively unscathed, the living dead are less of a threat than they are a cultural phenomenon. But then, phenomenons house their own inherent threats, don't they?
"Excuse Me": If you traveled back in time seven seconds every time you farted, you'd seek therapy too.
"Secondhand Rush": When people upload their minds into computers to achieve immortality, memories become the only currency that matters. People who dedicate a fleshtime to the pursuit of memorable moments become the new moguls. But there are some risks that could never be worth experiencing in the first place.
As well as these other fantastic stories: "Chasers", "Glow Baby", "Faerie Belches", "How Quickly We Forget", "Thinking Out Loud", "Not Rats", and "ZFL."
