These twelve science-fiction short stories follow twelve individuals in a distant, or maybe not so distant, future. Each character is facing a challenge or choice that will change the course of their life, and might also affect the fate of humanity itself.
Nine stories of dark fantasy, science fiction, and horror. Featuring shapeshifters, werewolves, ghosts, monsters, dragons, a Valkyrie, and more...there's a bit of everything in this collection of flash fiction! All nine stories originally appeared on R.B. Wood's Word Count Podcast in 2019.
