Inhuman

There are other beings out there. Demons, fae, aliens, robots and more. Creatures that have been watching us for a long time. They know us. For this challenge, write from the point of view of something “Inhuman”; an exterior point of view that is able to see what it really means to be Human.

This was a hard challenge, no doubt about it, but 18 authors rose to occasion. Within these pages are twenty stories from 18 established and break out authors from around the world: Australia, Canada, USA and UK.

You will also find a thought provoking forward written by this round’s Guest Judge: Jerome Stueart
