Truth is a dangerous thing. A little of it goes a long way and it can come back to bite you. That’s why our society (and most societies I would imagine) encourage the polite, little lie. Thus my title for this anthology “Caveat Veritatem” or “Beware of the Truth”. Here are five stories that tell various truths, no matter the consequences for you or for the characters.
“Vicious Cycle” – Wherein a leader is forced to choose between repetition and redemption.
“X Marks the Spot” – Mark uncovers a long buried box that unlocks him. This is one of the prequel stories in my Children of Legend series.
“Truth Is No Stranger to Fiction” – They say there’s some truth at the core of every story, even the most absurd ones. That comes back to haunt a publisher of such tales.
“Tell Me Why” – Can love be outlawed in order to save humanity?
“Hell Hath No Fury” – Don’t mess with Mother Nature or her defenders. Mike learns that lesson the hard way when both attempt to blow him and his experimental craft out of the air.
