Flight of the Starhawk
Part 1 (of 3)

Tony Ragas
As a teenager, Josh had wanted to fly to the stars. As an adult, he ended up with an oilfield job and a portfolio of hopeless dreams stashed away on his PC's hard drive. Alcoholism and depression ate away at him and drove him to spend lonely nights pondering his existence. Then he met an alien on the riverbank one night. An alien with a machine that created objects out of raw matter and energy. Even complex objects like components for starships!

Strange Deaths to Follow
Part 3 (of 5)

Neil McGill
A strange tale where a fortean detective meets the minority report meets the world of Pratchett meets Tarantino.
