What if ‘Think Differently’ was more than a campaign slogan?

What if it was part of a mind control network geared towards advanced sciences, creating a vibrant, creative and competitive workforce?

This is the world of Glass Shore, a dynamic existence featuring fierce vehicles, cruel weapons and serious body augmentation.

Manhattan, 2076. The fabled city of gold realised; a city of dazzling buildings and beautiful people; a city celebrated for converting an obsolete subway system into an adult playground. Manhattanite Nikki’s life changes forever when she finds the files labelled ‘Project Blue Book appendix 63-A’. The report contains a disc related to the Glass Shore, the horrendous nuclear event at Puget Sound in 2062. Disclosure of these files is not an option, so powerful people want Nikki dead. To protect her Nikki hires Apollo, her long-time friend and lover, who is magnificent at his job. He is also a clothes whore with an honest enthusiasm for life. 

Nikki and Apollo are the hottest couple in Manhattan. Betrayed by friends at every turn, set upon by bounty hunters and other elements of security, law enforcement and civil protection, they utilise the best hotels, the sexy Underground and the glorious city of Manhattan as their shield.

About the author

Stefan Jackson was born in North Carolina beside the calm eddies of the Trent and Neuse rivers, but spent the latter part of his childhood in southern California.  In 1994 he moved to Brooklyn looking for a change, drawn to the energetic confluence of the Hudson and East rivers of the Big Bright City.  There he met a lovely woman who became his wife, and they have an enchanting daughter. And a cat.  He now lives in Queens, where he writes stories, plays drums, coaches pee-wee girl’s basketball, works the cubicle life, cooks breakfast, rides the F line, laughs and rests his head in the land of jazz.  Stefan says “Cheers to the first fifty years. Hoping the next fifty are just as kind.”

A Post-Apocalyptic Fight for Survival

Angela has moved Safe Haven to the post-apocalyptic Mountains of Georgia to make their stand. She has put a plan in motion that will free them all or get them all killed. For her, everything since the apocalypse has come down to this moment. It’s what she’s been training for, what her men have tried to prepare her for, but only fate knows if it will be enough.

Kendle isn’t adjusting well to being among her own kind. She doesn’t like any of them. They’re not serious enough in her opinion, not hard enough to deserve an angel like Marc, who she is drawn to against her will. She wants to spill blood, but as far as Safe Haven is concerned, she couldn’t care less if they all live or die. Their fight for survival isn’t hers.

Samantha has a vital mission. Her role is one that Neil and Jeremy would never have allowed. Samantha’s time to prove herself has come and she’ll need all of her strength, her concentration, to accomplish it. She has a hard job in their apocalypse plan and if she fails, she will die. Sam wouldn’t have that any other way.

The Eagles are tired of the drama. They want things back the way they were and after this fight for survival, they will make sure it happens. Angela is who they will support if she saves them all, even against Marc. The camp members feel the same. They will follow whoever gives them freedom from the apocalypse.

The Government is counting on the chaos. News of the angels gathering has reached the bunker and those in charge are confident that they can sweep in and grab the paranormal people while everyone is distracted. They will kill the rest. There are too many descendants, too many future dangers. If the government doesn’t do something now, they aren’t likely to get such a good chance again. Having all that magic in one place is a mistake that the government plans to take advantage of. They’ve sent Major John Donner to handle the situation.

Major Donner has studied the descendants and their inner angels his entire military career. He spends months at a time underground with them in the labs. He knows them better than anyone on the government’s payroll. He’s the guy they call to recapture paranormal escapees or to hunt down new angels. His family has served in this manner for a century. His name is whispered with loathing among descendants and soldiers alike. He is brilliant, he is ruthless, and the post-apocalyptic government has turned him loose.

The Soldiers are coming for Adrian...and everyone else like him.

 

Safe Haven has grown too powerful to be ignored any longer. The surviving government wants all survivors secured for their own use or eliminated, and they couldn't have chosen a better time to reemerge from their dystopian holes.

Safe Haven has a new leader and a tall wall of fresh challenges to overcome in their fight for survival. Adrian's condition is critical, the camp isn't ready to accept the existence of magic, Mother Nature still has them in her crosshairs, and they are low on food, water, and fuel. The next eight weeks might be the hardest they've gone through yet, and still not be enough to ensure their survival. Can Angela bring the pieces together in time or will this be the end?

 

“The war has begun to change us…

The mental cliffs we've been forced to leap to survive this dystopian existence–the horrors that we now hold inside–are nothing compared to the metaphysical evolutions. We're harder, stronger, more determined, but also weaker because we need each other so much. It creates vulnerabilities.

We're all angrier, as well. We know the soldiers also survived the war and that we’ll have to fight them to remain free. We've faced slavers and nature, attacks from crazed refugees, and personal hatred inside our own borders, but all of that was to prepare us for this moment of facing our own military. We represent what's left of the great American herd.”

The title, Existence is Elsewhen, paraphrases the last sentence of André Breton’s 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism, perfectly summing up the intent behind this anthology of stories from a wonderful collection of authors. Different worlds… different times. It’s what Elsewhen Press has been about since we launched our first title in 2011. 

  Here, we present twenty science fiction stories for you to enjoy. We are delighted that headlining this collection is the fantastic John Gribbin, with a worrying vision of medical research in the near future.  Future global healthcare is the theme of J A Christy’s story; while the ultimate in spare part surgery is where Dave Weaver takes us.  Edwin Hayward’s search for a renewable protein source turns out to be digital; and Tanya Reimer’s story with characters we think we know, gives us pause for thought about another food we take for granted.  Evolution is examined too, with Andy McKell’s chilling tale of what states could become if genetics are used to drive policy. Similarly, Robin Moran’s story explores the societal impact of an undesirable evolutionary trend; while Douglas Thompson provides a truly surreal warning of an impending disaster that will reverse evolution, with dire consequences.

  On a lighter note, we have satire from Steve Harrison discovering who really owns the Earth (and why); and Ira Nayman, who uses the surreal alternative realities of his Transdimensional Authority series as the setting for a detective story mash-up of Agatha Christie and Dashiel Hammett.  Pursuing the crime-solving theme, Peter Wolfe explores life, and death, on a space station; while Stefan Jackson follows a police investigation into some bizarre cold-blooded murders in a cyberpunk future. Going into the past, albeit an 1831 set in the alternate Britain of his Royal Sorceress series, Christopher Nuttall reports on an investigation into a girl with strange powers.

  Strange powers in the present-day is the theme for Tej Turner, who tells a poignant tale of how extra-sensory perception makes it easier for a husband to bear his dying wife’s last few days. Difficult decisions are the theme of Chloe Skye’s heart-rending story exploring personal sacrifice.  Relationships aren’t always so close, as Susan Oke’s tale demonstrates, when sibling rivalry is taken to the limit.  Relationships are the backdrop to Peter R. Ellis’s story where a spectacular mid-winter event on a newly-colonised distant planet involves a Madonna and Child.  Coming right back to Earth and in what feels like an almost imminent future, Siobhan McVeigh tells a cautionary tale for anyone thinking of using technology to deflect the blame for their actions.  Building on the remarkable setting of Pera from her LiGa series, and developing Pera’s legendary Book of Shadow, Sanem Ozdural spins the creation myth of the first light tree in a lyrical and poetic song. Also exploring language, the master of fantastika and absurdism, Rhys Hughes, extrapolates the way in which language changes over time, with an entertaining result.
