“I’ve been thrown out here on this planet. No memories. A gun in my hand, an enemy in front of me, but no memories. And now I see the truth: I was put here to fail. I don’t get to be a martyr, or a hero. I get to be destroyed. You want anger? I can help. Anger is what I do.”

Caitanya-9. Unmappable and unchartable. Orbited by two supermassive black moons, its landscape is in constant flux from earthquakes and volcanoes. The only inhabitants are a mysterious race of aliens, and when a team of geologists makes a terrifying discovery beneath the planet’s surface, the aliens turn hostile.

Five years away Terrus receives a distress call and dispatches a team of six marines to control the situation.

Interstellar travel erases the subjects’ memories. When the marines wake up from a five-year sleep, they have no recollection of who or where they are.

The rank and file receive memory implants, informing them of their pasts.

Their leader receives nothing.

Either by mistake or intent, his identity is a mystery. Battle looms on Caitanya-9, and while the marines prepare to fight a deadly enemy on an ever-changing world, their leader must face the enemy before him, the enemy behind him, and the enemy inside his own head.

[26 short stories of surrealistic horror]

To begin, find a source of static. Static is everywhere. To look is to find.

The sanity wallpapering the world is thin and grows thinner every day. Everywhere there are little holes where order has broken down. So put an eye or ear to a hole and witness the storm gathering beyond. Turn the static up as loud as you can endure and listen.

The hive is listening back. The thing. The space in the middle. The forgotten. The overlooked. The nameless, constantly grasping towards a name and a shape. And above all, a home.

You might find you like static. You might find you like chaos. This means the hive is building its home in you.

Donatella Massimo’s business is Uber for suicide, and in a city full of depression, business is good. It’s safe, sane, and completely legal – you sign the form, and then die. As the company advances one funeral at a time, Donatella begins to wonder what the future holds for her own body. Infodeath is a terminal-black satire of startup culture, the commodification of human life, and the promise of man-made digital immortality.
