Writers of the Future Volume 7

What if. . .

You were a castaway on a far distant and deadly planet, and yet you were perfectly happy?

You were the latest in a long line of queens who could fortell the future, but this acted as a curse?

Suppose. . .

You were competing with someone else to build a time machine.

Your plan to raid a fortress was hung up on a seemingly trivial detail.

That the man or woman you loved wasn’t what they seemed to be.

These are just some of the adventures that await. . .
