Title: Storm of Legacy
Genre: Science Fantasy
Length: 92300 words
Author: Darek C. Baczewski

Even in a universe of infinite parallels, it’s a wonder that a bumbler like Joseph Degrep managed to become an Archivist Third Class. Sent on his first mission to the desolate world of Prastas, a waste whose population is without hope or motivation, he is woefully unprepared, ill-equipped, and in-over-his-head for the mysteries he encounters. Without magic or skill, can Joseph survive and complete his mission, or will he become just another of the Lost?

Title: Back to Us
Genre: Contemporary LGBT (OwnVoices) Romance
Length: 75K
Author: Natalie Duleba

Getting shot is the opposite of Crow’s idea of a good time, but it does get the best friend he’s been in love with for years back in his life after almost six years of estrangement. Constantine thought he would never regret leaving Crow behind after finding him in bed with his girlfriend when they were teenagers, but now Constantine is unable to stay away, helping Crow get back on his feet and reforging their old friendship into something a lot closer to love than hate. But Crow isn’t telling the whole truth behind his shooting and Constantine has lingering doubts he’s not entirely honest about, either — and it all might be enough to rip them apart forever.
