Play Dead is the story of the survivors of a zombie apocalypse in Miami, Florida. A short film made on-location, it follows this unlikely group of survivors as they escape the zombies, band together, and seek out a place where they can ride out the chaos until it ends.
Oh, yeah, and these survivors? They’re all dogs.
Roseman looks at some current trends to explore love, sex and relationships in the near future, through the eyes of a young man who regrets his decision not to renew his relationship contract with his partner after eight years and one child.
Roseman’s first story in Asimovs (‘Bring on the Rain’) was an action-packed drama, and he attempts a much more difficult story here, in looking at relationships and getting into the mind of the protagonist, and it just feels a little less subtle than it needs to be.
Mark Watson at Best SF said the above about “Greener” and “Bring on the Rain”.
I agree that “Greener” was a more difficult story in some ways, although I actually have more difficulty with action sequences, as I worry about them going by too quickly. I just wrote a Boss Fight in my novel and I found myself having to pad it out a little to reach 2000 words in the chapter.
Griff the Invisible is about a young man named Griff who lives alone in Melbourne, Australia, has very defined habits, feeds stray cats, and works in the shipping department of what I believe is an import-export firm called WW Enterprises. He’s overshadowed by his brother Tim, bullied by his co-worker Tony, and pitied by his Gary, his boss. But at night, Griff becomes a Batman-like superhero who wears a black suit with a golden G-shaped logo on the chest. He fights evildoers, watches the area, and accepts missions from the police commissioner.
Or does he?
The Harry Potter phenomenon has spawned countless fan-created works of written fiction, musical awesomeness, and re-cut music videos. It has inspired thousands of people to be more awesome than they might otherwise have been. And that’s good.
But now it’s over. The last film was released in 2011, and if you don’t subscribe to the EWE school of thought, we know what’s happening 19 years later: Harry and Ginny are married with three children, Ron and Hermione with two, Draco with one, and so on. However, lots of good fan-fiction* has changed the outcome of that epilogue.
Harry Potter and the Ten Years Later is the latest entry in that oeuvre, and, so far, it looks promising.
