The Keystone Islands: Portals of the Grave

What if someone buried a secret inside you?

Scott, Miranda, and Dixon have no idea where they came from. At the age of seven, they fell through a portal onto the planet Cova. Their bodies were marked with mysterious surgical scars. Doctors and scientists watched them grow, always looking for answers. Were they aliens? Bio-engineered? Children from the future?

On the eve of their adulthood, answers finally arrive. A scattered and tattered people from the other side of the world seem to know the truth about the portal. However, these new people hold subtle, unexplained powers. Can they be trusted? Whatever their intentions, they are a threat to Cova.

Scott, Miranda, and Dixon are now in a race to find out who they really are. As they battle to save Cova from the threat of this new civilization, they must answer the most important question: are they the very weapons that could destroy humanity?

Allen Lennox and the Temp Job of Doom

Alan Lennox has been assigned yet another soul-crushing temp job, keeping him from his first loves – drinking, playing video games, and looking for a boyfriend. But Alan’s new job proves to be anything but boring when his co-workers start turning up dead. The mysterious megacorporation Amalgamated Synergy has taken a deadly interest in Alan and his three roommates, and the hapless quartet are woefully unequipped to deal with the psychotic secretaries, murderous middle managers, and villainous vice-presidents hunting them down.

Their investigation leads them deep into Amalgamated Synergy’s headquarters, but can Alan and his friends stay alive long enough to discover who – or what – waits for them on the top floor?
Skin 2.0: A Cyberpunk Science Fiction Novella

An unhappy cyborg with a forbidden dream. A society that punishes change. A dangerous quest that could change Amy’s future… or ruin it entirely.

For centuries, men, women, and even children have filled narrow cubicles in skyscraping office buildings, rusty factory floors, and poorly lit illegal damp basements to slave for the survival of their families. Those jobs were low paid, grueling, and even deadly, but for some, it was the only way of life.

By the end of the 21st century, a new generation of workers took over those jobs. These workers never get tired. They never break down. They never dream.

At least, they aren't supposed to.
Halfskin: The Vignettes

A synthetic stem cell called a biomite can replace any cell in your body. They are infallible. As our percentages of biomites rise, we become stronger, we become smarter and prettier. We become better.

Can we resist the temptation of perfection? Are we still human when our bodies are replaced by synthetic replications?

If biomites exist, laws will be imposed to prevent excess and abuse. Those with 50% biomites will no longer be considered human.

They will be halfskin.
