    Heroes of Anodos

    Heroes of Anodos

    Lachenhut flew out toward the creature first.  Overclock and Keo hovered in the air, at the ready, but hanging back as our red-capped leader had requested.
    I watched it all through that little drone’s cameras.  Silly, I had called it, ever since Overclock overproudly announced he had built something for the team.  And yet, Max Speed was there for his team, when I could not be.  I was laid up at headquarters, my powers drained, while my team faced the biggest challenge they had ever faced together.  Biggest, in every sense of the word.  Trudging toward the city was a giant creature with the head of a fly and the body of…a person almost.  All we could tell was that it was a living thing, not some kind of machine.  And it had just appeared out of thin air in the eastern harbor and started making its way to shore.
     
    A robot, a power-shifting merman, a redcap, a brilliant drone, and a strong-man who’s lost his strength face the biggest threat their city has seen.
    Genre: Science Fiction

    Literary Influences:
    I took the name Anodos from a fairy tale written by George MacDonald, Phantastes, in which the main character is a young man named…Anodos.  I read the story long ago.  I don’t recall understanding any of the subtext.  I just remember it as a story of someone wandering through another realm.

    Doctor Miratio's Cabinet of Imminent Invention

    Doctor Miratio's Cabinet of Imminent Invention

    Note of caution: This episode contains sound effects of real-world firearms (from minute 49 to end).


    “I’ll need the ether regulator. Hand it to me, won’t you?” 
    “Umm…”
    “It’s the device with the controls for wireless manipulation of extraplasmic conductance.”
    The young journalist’s eyes widened and though he was afraid to admit to the inventor that he did not know which one of the devices laid out on the laboratory bench was the ether regulator, he was more afraid of handing her the wrong device.
     
    When Doctor Miratio checks her cabinet of past and future invention one day, she finds something amiss.

    The Lost Treasure of the Arcadian

    The Lost Treasure of the Arcadian

    Over the last three hundred years, elaborate guesses have been made about the nature of the treasure aboard the Arcadian. It was only after news spread of the ship’s loss to a freak storm as it passed through open and unclaimed seas that the rumors of what it carried began to spread along with the news of the wreck.
     
    Captain Stella and his deep diving crew have just accepted a mission to recover an unidentified treasure from one of the most mysterious shipwrecks in history.

    Sal Saturn and the Planetary Rangers

    Sal Saturn and the Planetary Rangers

    In the year 2025, humanity received an answer to one of its most fundamental questions: “Are we alone in the universe?”
    Only one thousand standard years later, unnoticeable and unfathomable to the greatly aged cosmos, a galactic alliance was formed, a coalition of inhabited worlds bound together in cooperation, friendship, and mutual progress. The Grand Unified Milky Way. The G.U.M. was protected by the Milky Way Planetary Rangers, whose members hailed from every planet in the alliance, and whose mission was to patrol within and outside the borders of their home, the galaxy the Earth humans charmingly named the Milky Way.
     
    On the most important diplomatic mission of the millennium, Captain Sal Nova and her Rangers are attacked by a weapon that shouldn’t exist.
    Genre: Science Fiction

    How I Defeated the Devourer

    How I Defeated the Devourer

    It starts off dark, and all I hear is a low, subtle pulsing. Not as rhythmic and steady as a heartbeat, but more like, the whooshing and sloshing of a washing machine. Then I can make out the clicking. Click, click, click. Multiplied. Click, click, clickclickclickclickclickclick. I see myself. And I am myself at the same time. My shoulders are drooped. I can hardly keep my eyes open. My skin feels warm, too warm.  I see myself noticing the sound and raising his—my—head. My eyes move to the left and my head turns slightly, but then stops. I need to see. But I don’t want to see.
     
    A young man pursuing his dreams is himself pursued by something from his nightmares.

    April Majus

    April Majus

    “What is that? On its head? Is that a hat or…a deformity?”
    “It’s too hazy to see when it’s in motion,” I said. “We’ll have to pause.”
    “The lights are on. We can see everything. I thought he only comes when it’s dark.”
    “No, remember that mom who was taken when she was tucking her kid in. He was awake and his light was on.”
    Jules and I were reviewing all of the preliminary evidence. I didn’t want to keep looking at this video. Seeing a girl getting dragged away. All the rumors that the person dragging her away may not even be human didn’t make it easier. Some of the first rumors were of alien abduction. The latest rumors had turned the abductor into some kind of urban legend.
     
    One investigator is about to discover that the latest victim in a string of strange abductions is more than she appears to be.
