Not only am I a sci-fi stud who makes humans swoon, I'm also an assistant editor at ICC Magazine. In that role I've written several cover stories, which is cool, but I'm also the first line of defense when it comes to submissions. It was fulfilling that latter function that I finally lost my shit and went on an epic rant. The nice people over at Writers Co-Op offered me the opportunity to polish my rant and make it an article. So I did. Just CLICK HERE to read what makes any editor swill their morning vodka. "I so too saw this" is not a real phrase in English and never will be. That's just a glimpse.
Make sure you've steeled your nerves with copious amounts of coffee before you read it all.

Juggernaut - BRAND NEW!! Set in the distant future, Juggernaut is the story of a human/alien fusion and her strange family. They live in an era where sexuality, in all its myriad forms, isn’t taboo but violence is. This group of aristocratic soldiers, who just happen to be related, must face down their own petty, in the grand scheme of things, problems and stop a trans-dimensional creature before it destroys the universe. Or not. It really depends on their mood at the time.
Legends Parallel - For those who think quantum physics isn't violent or sexy enough. Five earths and one woman wants to rule them all. This is the story of the man, his mom, and her lover who have to stop that from happening.
Svarozic - A woman trapped inside a man, a god trapped inside a human. Since they're all one person, she's got issues.
Jungle Grrl - In a distant future sex is encouraged, violence is frowned upon, and our hero, her bestie, and their dino clone, try to eke out a living in a sex park while figuring out the meaning of life.
Ruh Roh Rangers - This is the parody that'll ruin your childhood but make your day. Those four meddlesome kids are now four meddlesome adults.
