Fields of dreams 

Upon the legendary fields of Valhalla, the spirits of Viking warriors do eternal battle in service to their god, Odin. By night they feast and toast the fallen, but at dawn the dead are restored to fight until the end of times.

When SG-1 find themselves trapped in this endless battle, prisoners of Odin, they must discover the strange truth about Valhalla before it is too late — and then confront the giant, Surtr, a terrible and immortal enemy bent on revenging himself against his god.

In order to defeat Surtr, Sam Carter suggests using a naquadrium power cell Jonas Quinn has developed on his home world, but when she and Colonel O’Neill arrive on Langara they realize their problems have only just begun…

VALHALLA

“So we’re talking what?” O’Neill said. “A boatload of Vikings who got really lost on their way to pillage Britain?”

“Not exactly,” Daniel said. “As I said, the artifacts contain Norse runes — on the outside. But on the inside of one of the artifacts — specifically, this scabbard — I discovered writing from another language: Asgard.”

Teal’c frowned. “On the inside, Daniel Jackson?”

Daniel leaned back, looking suddenly sheepish. “Yeah, well, when I was examining the scabbard I, uh, sort of dropped it.”

“And let me guess,” O’Neill said. “It sort of broke. Didn’t they teach you not to drop priceless ancient artifacts back in Archaeology 101?”

Daniel pursed his lips in irritation, but he took hold of the scabbard and lifted one side of it away from the other. He held up the split piece and turned the inside toward the others so they could see the runes etched within. “On the inside, written in Asgard, is a gate address — one previously unknown to us. The address is accompanied by a single word: Valhalla.”

FICTION BY
Jack Ketchum, Meg Elison, Tim Waggoner, David James Keaton, Larry Hinkle, Tom Barlow, Nick Manzolillo, Josh Scott Wilson, and Gil Valle.

"The Phantom Video Stream" by Nick Manzolillo sets the tone with red-room atmospherics in the story of a man who discovers a hidden channel streaming from what may be another reality.

Tim Waggoner's "Are You Crazy?" answers its own question in shocking Waggoner style.

Larry Hinkle's "Meat Cute" opens with "Stop staring at her tits!" and ends with a coldblooded revelation. Short and not so sweet.

Tom Barlow's "Selfie" demonstrates that two heads aren't always better than one, not when they're spitting images.

Meg Elison's "The Middle Child" takes an unflinching look at fame and greed and the mania underlying video virality.

In "Sick Jokes" Josh Scott Wilson takes political incorrectness to new heights--and depths.

David James Keaton, aka DJK, takes us for a ride into brutal biker mayhem that hits like a jackhammer in "The Flowery." Some tattoos ain't cool.

Jack Ketchum reprises "Megan's Law," a disturbing look at what can happen when a child molester moves into a concerned dad's neighborhood. If you've never read this classic, you're in for a creepy treat, and if you have then you know it's definitely worth rereading.

Plus, an exclusive excerpt from the NYPD's "Cannibal Cop" Gil Valle's upcoming Comet Press release of his first novel A Gathering of Evil, which parallels the message-board fantasies that landed him in jail.
