A race of artificial lifeforms called Xecians are being developed and placed to thrive in a cage, each latest creation getting smarter and stronger.
Alpha-99, or A99, being the most advanced and closest to a human being’s perception, finds himself questioning their identities and the purpose of their existence.

"Whoever made us are rather fools… whether they are a group or we are only dealing with a single creator, the intelligence provided to me was enough to lead a resistance in this cage:

we bow to no master."

Maybe this is Science Fiction because it is near future (2025) and shows how existing technology could stop global warming.

Killing Me Gently

By: Awkward Menace

She was, in a word, mesmerizing. Her electric blue hair was shaved on one side. And she moved as a gazelle prancing through the meadow while she ended the lives of the four men. The majestic woman turned toward me, the world was moving in slow motion as she flipped her hair out of her face. I watched as she walked toward me, then she started running. As she grew closer, I noticed her expression, anger. She pointed her gun right at my forehead.

It’s the final evening of the television program, Precursor, a two time Emmy winning talk show based on the premise of bringing back the deceased to have one final talk with their descendants. Louise Jean has been able to book the founder of ME Features, Oliver Menior and his great grandson William Menior the current CEO. These two american icons breathe what it means to be wholesome family content. Unfortunately, the two have different views of what the family legacy should be and poor Louise is stuck in the middle.

Angel’s Ride

It was LA in the year 2O21. A new underground theme park called “The River Styx” had just closed down. “Too many mysterious deaths and unethical methods to get people to visit it,” the official inquiry had reported.

Looking back, it was that first day in the photo lab, while trying to get the young model’s image more metallic on the screen. That’s when Angel suddenly appeared to him in the flesh–her face next to his in the blue light of the monitor.
