The Star Agency by R.E. Weber: “So many of us dream of another life – a life of excitement and danger. What if, in the darkest depths of despair, you suddenly had a chance to live that life? Would you have the courage to chase that dream, even if you had to leave your friends, family and everything you knew behind? Would you take that chance?” (January 2013)

Dream by Jeremy Waters: “Avery Dover produces both legal and illegal drugs, with his brain. CORRD, A new branch of the government, in charge of the management of Orexin-A. Employs him to create one of them. A powerful medication that circumvents the very need for actual sleep. The other, he makes under the nose of that very organization. ‘Dream’ users experience instantaneous dreams, and is used for its effects of euphoria and relaxation. What starts as a very small incident in Avery’s life, will end in a way that will change the life of millions.” (March 2013)

She finds a kind music teacher, discovers a new friend, and her only requirement as a student is to study the art of singing-her favorite thing in the world. However, Awen soon realizes that Miss Nina’s goal is not simply to train voices. She is trying to take them away.” (May 2013)
