Writers of the Future Volume 8

Imagine. . .

Aliens who want to get to know you—by trading memories.

A graveyard where riot cops must keep the interred from escaping.

You’ve been hired to have a baby, but you’re a man.

A heroine kept in cold storage until the world needs her again.

That people in the future are so good, they must return to the past to learn what is evil.

You’ve chosen to become a prophet . . . to an alien race.

The cyborg at your bedside is both your enemy and your enemy’s worst nightmare.

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