Communing In Darkness
Donna Giltrap
Time was that everybody who was anybody went to seances. Time was that there was a living to made out of being a medium. Some of them were fakes, sure - But some of them were for real, and could put you in touch with the dead. For many rich people, mediums were a necessity. Who else would provide a link with family long gone? In the occult-obsessed 1920s it hit fever pitch, and both the good and the bad mediums thrived in an atmosphere of appreciation.

Seven people gather around a table. They join hands. The call goes out "Is there anybody there?" Tonight, someone is definitely there. And they want to talk.

Whose Woods These Are
Ivan Towlson
Life used to be so delightful in the Jumbley Wood. The squirrels chattered, the badgers pontificated and the big friendly trees made up stories about princesses while in their nice warm roots the happy talking animals drifted off to sleep. Even the occasional bit of trouble was soon resolved with a stern talking-to. Then came the Tyrant. He vowed to slaughter the talking animals and cut down the big friendly trees; and if anyone went and gave him a stern talking-to, he didnít come up with easily foiled death traps, he just had them killed, and strung the body up on barbed wire as a warning to others. Now there are only a few of the talking animals left, hiding in the silent, wintry remnants of the wood, pallid, weak and starving, fearful of the carrion crows above, and of their own friends betraying them to save their own fur.

Cicada

Super Heroic Survival Horror
You have lived in Totton all your life, it is a small town beside England's New Forest that has now sprung back since the tragedy of '75. Until today your greatest concerns in life were coping with the dual demands of keeping your social life together whilst preparing for your A levels.
Today seems different however, for some reason your sense of unease has been rising in urgency. As if....

Miracle Recovery Confounds Doctors
Doctors at St. Bartholomew's Hospital have admitted to being completely baffled by the remarkable recovery of seven year old Eve Jackson from a virulent form of bone cancer. Only days ago her family were preparing for the end. which they had been told was inevitable, given the rate at which the cancer was progressing through her body.
"We took Eve home so she could be with us at the end as a proper family," said Shelley, Eve's mother. "Last night she couldn't even move or talk, but this morning we woke up to find her playing out in the yard with Scruffles (the family dog) just like she used to."

Tests carried out at the hospital indicate that not only has the cancer completely vanished, but her body appears to have fully recovered, including gaining back more than 10kg in weight seemingly overnight.

The grisly murder of "Miracle Child" Eve Jackson, three months after her recovery from cancer, appears to be a hopeless case for the police team assigned to investigate. No DNA evidence has been left behind and there is no obvious motive. Under intense media pressure to get a result the team also have their own problems to deal with, personally and professionally.

Butterfly Wings
Alasdair Sinclair

Life is a struggle. Sometimes literally. Years as a desk jockey hasn't been enough to let you forget the mud, the fighting, and the blood. "We're choosing the future" was the Sergeant's mantra, words that echo after all this time. Words that meant something to desperate men alone on foreign soil. Words that kept you fighting men who believed different from you: dying, living. Life is a choice: the choice to win. To choose the future.

In an instant the world can change. You've felt it change. Behind the blue skies, your wife's smile, and your children playing, a storm rages. And now you face another choice, another struggle. A war you cannot define, against a foe you cannot see. A war you must win, if you don't want the future you chose ripped apart like butterfly wings in a storm.

Yesterday the world changed. What happens tomorrow is up to you.
