Pax Titanus – By Tom Lucas
FORCED TO FIGHT!
Intergalactic kidnappers have taken the son of a simple construction worker, demanding that he enter the greatest fighting tournament in the universe, the SkullCrushFest, and murder every one of his opponents.
They picked the wrong guy to mess with.
Titanus might not be a natural fighter, but he’s got the greatest gladiator coach in the games and a not-so-secret weapon–his alien ability to increase any body part in size or length.
Also, it doesn’t hurt that he’s ten feet tall, has four arms, and two massive war hammers.
Are you ready to crush some skulls? Are you ready to bash and crash? Well then…
It’s time to GET BIG!

Leather to the Corinthians – by Tom Lucas
Leather to the Corinthians is an absurd postmodern fable that defiantly flips a middle finger at modern American life.
Celebrities grown in nutrient vats.
Holographic sex clubs where anything is possible.
A church that worships superheroes.
A military force of carnival clowns and plushie killing machines.
Welcome to The Village — home to a mad despot known only as The King, the mega-corporation Sell Inc, and the 10,000-channel media conglomerate Network One.
A coup has reduced The Village to rubble. Now, a nameless soldier struggles with his humanity, a priest faces a crisis of faith, a salesman falls in love with a digital mistress, and a post-punk tribe of motorized merchants fights for its very survival.
It’s going to take a while to clean up this mess. Hopefully, someone brought snacks.

Potter’s Field #5
Strangers and paupers, the homeless and derelict, murder victims and victims of wrecks and crashes in seas and trackless wilderness, soldiers and plague victims heaped in mass graves. All have tales untold. Their families and friends, their classmates and neighbors think of them from time to time, sometimes wondering if they are alive or dead. Their fates are guessed, surmised, possibly correctly.
Resign yourself to the same fate as all others, take comfort in commiserating while you can, and hope for that blessed more beyond. Welcome to the Potter’s Field.
A brilliant horror anthology, and my story is the first one in the TOC. WIN!
