The SFT Curates 12/2/17

in #curation5 years ago (edited)

Contests are a great place to find good fiction. It seems a little friendly competition brings out the best in many writers. We parsed through the entries for the recent Hardfork Series contest and GMuxx's Art Prompt Contest, and we found some real gems. We bring three of them to you today, and will have more in a follow-up post, along with some other great discoveries we've made.

WHAT MADE THESE STORIES STAND OUT TO US?

We chose these selections because they are tightly written, well-edited, and show creative innovation. The authors were willing to work hard to get the technical aspects right, as well as the storytelling mechanics.

These curated stories will appear today in the SFT Library.

CURATION: 12/3/17

Our selections today are listed alphabetically by username: “iSee: Pact With a Digital Devil,” by @GMuxx, "Impact" by @rhondak, and “Cabin Boy,” by @thinknzombie.

Desperate to pay for her daughter’s medical treatment, single mother Alice gets an iSee ocular implant. The program compensates her well, but it also exacts a price that Alice is not sure she’s willing to pay. This short work is a companion piece to *Virtual Mortality,* curated 7/22/17.

Time moves on, even after a horrific act of terrorism. The future seems bright, if a bit controlled. For one young woman in New York City, innocence and peace are about to be shattered in an instant, exactly as they were for her mother twenty-eight years before.

A dangerous child-prisoner confined to the brig is the only thing that can alleviate Kira’s boredom on a long voyage across the ocean. But is the possibility that he's a werewolf the only danger they face on the open seas?
