Dark Fiends of the Jungle

  Dark Fiends of the Jungle By Brandon Ketchum   Khaden slunk through the night shadows of the jungle like a mongoose preparing to strike. Fronds brushed his bare calves, tickling toes through his sandals. Insects shrieked, voices buzzing together in a jarring, discordant note. Fear-sweat, smoke, and ash combined to sting his nose. He shouldered his way through ranks of cultists and into the clearing.

World Champion

  World Champion By Sean Mulroy Deep Blue was only intelligent the way your programmable alarm clock is intelligent. Not that losing to a $10,000,000 alarm clock made me feel any better. Garry Kasparov World Chess Champion 1985-2000 # Strong winds from off the dead lands and arid plains somehow find their way to the City; here, they hum along electric roads, hiss down steel streets, whistle past towering grids of awesome structure, and seep inside every inch of artificial substance that is this living metropolis.
