 Forbidden Future

Publication Date: September 12, 2013          Publisher: Masquerade Publishing          Genre: Time Travel/Fantasy

Cover Designed by: Raphyel M. Jordan

 SYNOPSIS:

“Jump”

by Jon Bradbury

Jesse Kendall’s fiancee is missing, ever since she answered a strange ad. His only lead is a deserted warehouse downtown. In that warehouse he will find so much more than he bargained for.

“Road Trip”

by Matt Mitrovich

Four friends drive to a college party and take an unexpected detour into the future.

“Society”

by Terra Harmony
Take a ride on the ‘Energy of the Future’, where society gets a fresh, clean start – no matter who they have to leave behind.

“Forbidden Future”

by James Wymore

A time machine technician has given his whole life to the pure scientific pursuit of the study of time travel. When his personal life falls apart, he decides to risk it all and take a trip into the future. First, he must remove a failsafe blocking the machine from traveling to the future. What could be so bad that they tried to stop anybody from seeing it?

“The Mountains Haven’t”

by Kade Anderson

The people of the town of Dignity go about their daily lives, trying to scrape out a meager existence from the dirt and the dust of their land, never taking notice of the mountains that loom in the distance. To the others, the mountains are benign, as harmless as the grass their cows graze upon. To the town’s Watcher, Julia, the mountains hold the key to a far greater mystery.
