Villipede Double Feature 1: Available now on Amazon Kindle and Smashwords
Featuring “The Black Ziggurat” by Damir Salkovic, and “Cyborg Pajamas” by Rob Oxley.
Salkovic's story offers an alternative glimpse of post-cold war revelation, as Russian military men tend to a dark temple and the destructive, unfathomable alien forces that are kept prisoner beneath it. An American spy has seen first-hand the frightening power of the Black Ziggurat, and collaborates with the government to investigate and eventually control the dark forces for themselves. Oxley’s story is a grungy walk with Andy, the emotionally-damaged junkie main character, through a fairly normal day in a near-future world gone crazy. Citizens openly lose their minds in public view from a mysterious pathogen known as the Spell, and a street drug offers the only reprieve from its madness.

- Acceptable word range for stories is 3k to 8k.
- We prefer submissions to be in standard manuscript format, but will not disqualify any submission so long as it is coherent and readable.
