The Growing by Sword’n’Quill and Okasha – 652 pages
It’s 2012. Do you know where your androids are? In the near future, the world will grow complacent and a brilliant, if misguided, mind will seek to capitalize on that complacency by providing the common man and royalty alike with just the convenience he needs to aid him in his day to day labors. But what if suddenly those companions were to turn on their masters, sowing the seeds of destruction and death across the land? What if man’s helper became his killer, and no one knew why or how to stop it?
The Growing is the story of such a post-apocalyptic vision, and of the brave men and women who give everything they have to save the world from its eventual destruction. It is also the story of two lonely hearts, bitter enemies at first, who learn to trust and to love again in a world falling down all around them. Koda Rivers is a Lakota veterinarian and shaman whose roots run deep in her culture and in the soil of her native Black Hills. Kirsten King, Ph.D., is a brilliant cyberscientist and the sole surviving member of President Hillary Clinton’s Cabinet.
Each drawn by her own mission to destroy the androids, they meet in fire and blood at the North Dakota facility where the insurgent machines are manufactured. The Growing has all the bells and whistles of a classical epic: sweeping battles, a heroic love story, Amazon warriors, a blind bard, the gods of the land and a monster or two. The challenges present are met by our two heroes and their companions. These include Dakota’s remarkable father and her warrior brother, Tacoma; Maggie Allen, USAF Colonel and crack pilot; an extraordinary German Shepherd named Asimov; and the spirits of the land in their various forms.

The Conqueror’s Stone by Djwp – 115 Pages
This Conqueror piece uses key story elements from the original Hercules episode to create a clever cross-alternate universe tale. In the original Hercules story, the Chronos stone is responsible for the creation of the Conqueror. In DJWP’s story, “real time” Xena wakes up in the bed of the Conqueror. With enemies lurking behind every corner, she must figure out who and where she is, as well as figure out a way to get home. She seeks out the Amazons (guess who is the Queen?) to help her find another Chronos stone to restore the real timeline. The story is filled with familiar supporting characters from the series. There’s lots of action as suspense in the well-crafted plot. The story would have worked well as an actual Xena episode. It stays true to the series’ style of storytelling. It’s a Conqueror story without the presence of Xena the Evil Conqueror!
