The Krebs Cycle by Patrick Biason is a wild romp into a future that depicts the inevitable and repetitive demise of our civilization and beyond. Bridge by Sarai Misic gives us an intimate look into the relationship between a young man and his beloved grandfather as valuable life lessons are shared over fishing. Nosedive by Sal Pandolfo and Elliot Farley follows Valentina, an immigrant and aspiring journalist, as she struggles to share the truth about her homeland while those around her fight to suppress it. Just Fish by Ektor Chatzopoulos poses the comically philosophical question of what happens when an aquarium full of fish suddenly become enlightened.
