The Madness of Pursuit
Dema Ägan is a notorious pirate woman, who killed her former captain, stole his ship, and plies the seas with her J’Niah witch companion, Rymah. Or so the legends say.
As her story unfolds from multiple points of view, these conflicting tales of adventure on seas filled with danger, ancient power, love and betrayal, indicate there might be more to her story than the legends suggest.
American Monsters, Part 2

Forgotten, unknown, misunderstood, overused, watered down.
We adore them still. We want to give them a renaissance, to reestablish their dark reputation, to give them a comeback, let the world know of their real terror.
Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R. Delany
An anthology that brings together outstanding authors inspired by a brilliant writer and critic, Science Fiction Writers of America Grandmaster Samuel R. “Chip” Delany.

Everyone: Worlds Without Walls
At its best, science fiction has always been a literature of its times. And what times we are living in!
Alongside some of humanity’s greatest accomplishments and endeavours, and with greater ability to speak and hear each other across the planet than ever before, we’re still rocked by pain, fear, and outrage seemingly every time we turn on the news - news of division and injustice based on the notion that there’s an “us” and a “them”.
