It was a dark and stormy night...
52 Western authors were given this prompt, and each of them wrote a 500-word micro story. The result is 52 different stories. Some are predictable, traditional Western stories, but no less fun to read because of that. Many others head off into surprising and new directions. And you, the reader, get to enjoy the incredible, diverse tales 52 of today's best Western authors, developed from a single shared idea.
Dubbed Interface Zero by those who created it, the Tendril Access Processor—or TAP—downloads the Global DataNet and Hyper Reality directly into the minds of billions of users across the solar system, bringing the world an unparalleled level of interconnectivity, and danger. Malware plagues the Deep, and hackers manipulate the Tendril Access Processor to upload malicious viruses, to steal secrets, and even the identities of the unwary.
And that is only the beginning.
In 2088 a massive solar flare disrupts Earth's satellite network, leaving the world in chaos as all TAPs malfunction simultaneously. Hyper Reality overlays are indistinguishable from the physical world, and global riots make the whole world a war zone.
Amidst this madness, two AIs go to war, using humanity as their pawns.
While Newton was talking about motion when he developed the above law, it can also be said that for every action or decision there is a consequence: sometimes good, sometimes bad.
Many times consequences can be foreseen and planned for. But there are times they are never seen. It is these unforeseen or Unintended Consequences that can have the biggest impact on individual lives.
An android working to pass as human.
A woman who loses her pre-destined 'soul mate' on world where they were marked at birth.
A Queen who uses magic to make her subjects more cooperative and helpful to each other.
A wife who authorizes a radical treatment for dementia to be performed on her husband.
And 16 more who will learn about the unintended consequences that will affect their lives.

Sidekicks are used to being hidden from the spotlight shining on the hero they support. They work behind the scenes, doing their best to support their more famous companion.
There are times when the sidekick becomes the hero, when they have to step up and save not only their hero, but sometimes the entire world. This anthology is about sidekicks who humbly take those chances. Not just the usual sidekicks normally associated with Superheros -- any kind of sidekick in a science fiction or fantasy setting.
This anthology evolved from a panel at MileHiCon in Denver, Colorado, titled "So You Want To Be in an Anthology?" The stories contained within were contributed by attendees of that panel. All net proceeds are donated to support MileHiCon.
Make sure you attend MileHiCon and go to the panel to be invited to the 2016 anthology.

Since when have there been sparkling vampires? Are they a new brand of champagne or what?
Vampires are supposed to be wily, tricky, and even evil. And they never, ever sparkle. In this book, you’ll find stories with some refreshing takes on vampires: vampire heroes, vampire villains, humorous vampires, among others. Check out 27 stories with the most bite by Lyn McConchie, David Lee Summers, Cynthia Ward, David B Riley, Lillian Csernica, Rhonda Parrish, John Lance, and other exceptional authors. Grab some garlic, wooden stakes, and crucifixes, and get ready to party, because these vampires don’t sparkle.
These tales are apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic in the highest order. You'll meet creatures great and small, real and imaginary, struggling to survive a sudden calamity that not only takes them by surprise but takes their lives and the lives of their loved ones. There are glimpses of redemption and depictions of fleshly horror. But every story is well told and deserving to be read.
