Faeries Vs Robots Vs Aliens
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Scifi
The café was full. Sandra had placed her backpack on the chair next to her pretending that she was saving it for someone. She had her headphones on, she had her phone on the arm of the plush chair and she had a paperback book in her hand. She wanted to be left alone to drink her overpriced and unpronounceable coffee. Her headphones were wireless and she wasn’t listening to music.
Genre: Murder Mystery
Inspiration: And Then There Were None
“Best Party Ever!” yelled Jonathan. His hair was thinning and starting to go grey, but he was unmistakable.
“Remind me why I came?” Riko asked her partner Ethan.
“Because this is your ten year high school reunion and you’re the youngest person to make Inspector in Ottawa police history.” Ethan smiled proudly, looking at the quickly approaching island.
The Ruby Child
Genre: Fantasy Adventure
It was the middle of the night and darker than Mac was used too. When the clouds covered the stars in the rural islands there were no magical or electric lamps. It wasn’t the first time he’d wished he could use a magical torch or those fancy darkvision glasses but magic didn’t work on or around him. He just kept following the speck of light ahead.
Who will win? Murder Mystery, Urban Fantasy/Scifi, or Fantasy Adventure?
