Description:

In a universe much like our own, Professor Alister Bane lives a quiet life as an archeologist at Oxford University. But when a nearby excavation triggers a psychotic episode in one of his colleagues, Professor Bane finds himself tumbling down a rabbit hole of strange phenomena and frightening possibilities. Having to contend with a slew of disappearing interns and his own terrifying hallucinations, Alister Bane finds his mind—and his whole world—unraveling even as he searches for a solution. It all comes down to half-forgotten memories, a madman’s allusion to the thing with “terrible arms” and a nightmare of being trapped in a cold, dark place. But when he finds the answer, it is something beyond even his wildest dreams.

“The Elder Machine” is the fourth installment in Goldeen Ogawa’s sci-fi novella series chronicling the adventures of Professor Odd—and in this case, Professor Bane as well. It first appeared in Apsis Fiction 1.2: Perihelion 2014.

Description:

Meet Alister Bane, former college student. He is a sensible, conventional, practical young man. Not at all the sort of person you’d expect to find clambering around, in the rain, on a huge stone lightning bolt hanging in the sky. Yet here he is. Since being expelled from his home world, Alister has been traveling between universes with the flamboyant and inquisitive Professor Odd, Dave, a green tentacle monster, and Elo, a highly intelligent mutant wolf. Now, however, he has been separated from his friends and is forced to navigate an “unconventional” universe teetering on the brink of destruction. Impossible stone formations aside, there is also the problem of the sinister hooded natives, and why they have got a living man chained to a rock…

 “The Promethean Predicament” is the third in a series of novellas chronicling the fantastic travels of Professor Odd and her wayward companions. It first appeared in Apsis Fiction Volume 1, Issue 1: Mesohelion 2013.

In a world filled with magic, young orphan Corianne Birch is steadfastly ordinary.

Confronted by living shadows, capricious fairies, friendly necromancers and strange ghosts, Corianne must come to terms with her own peculiar brand of magic, as well as her enigmatic guardian—who is, like many things in her world, more than he appears. In the end it is up to her to solve the greatest mystery of them all: that of Bouragner Felpz himself.

These eleven stories, collected here in one volume for the first time, cover her early adventures with Bouragner Felpz—from their first awkward foray into a cursed mansion, to the last mission Corianne undertook as a young woman. This volume also contains an exclusive introduction written by their companion Abharus.
