VILLAINS CAN BE HEROES TOO. History is thrown into absolute chaos when pioneering kidnap-for-ransom terrorist Ukhuna Khan gets hold of a time machine from the future. There's a pterodactyl with flame throwers, Vikings, Aztec priests, droids, and all sorts of temporally displaced characters. Bored out of his mind with the safe zombie life, Arc is about to be swept up on an epic quest the likes of which the Multiverse has never seen. Tasked with the Herculean mission to save all of human existence, he leads a ragtag posse of antiheroes: a scarred witch, her cybernetic black cat, a dwarf ninja, a violin-playing gangster, and a gunslinger trapped in the body of a one-horned goat. In a medieval world caught in the war between order and entropy, nothing and no one is as they should be. Can Arc restore the fabric of the space-time continuum before the damage becomes irreparable?…

THEY ERASED HER ONCE. THEY'RE ABOUT TO DO IT AGAIN. Seventeen-year-old Lily de la Cruz has albinism. She can't be out in the sun for too long and has lived a sheltered life until now. She was raised by her godmothers and foster grandfather, Lolo Narding, the nonagenarian majordomo of the mansion where Lily also works as a maid. At school, Lily is bullied by her classmates. They call her "ghost" and "maligno" - offspring of fairy and human. The names cut deep because Lily doesn't know who her real father is. To make matters worse, Lily is haunted and occasionally inhabited by the ghost of the Dragon Lady, a late-nineteenth-century socialite who died under mysterious circumstances. Will the Dragon Lady help Lily come into her own, or are her intentions more sinister?…

AFTER THE #MEET-CUTE, THERE'S THE #BREAKUP-UGLY. The Breakup King, the first and only relationship closure app on the planet, gathers and analyzes content freely available on social media. With the help of an AI-powered virtual secretary named Athena, it creates millions of personality profiles and selects the next lucky client of its custom-made services. Finally, the Breakup King app mysteriously appears on the client's smartphone. Anteros "Nate" Montecristo is the mastermind behind the Breakup King. Nate doesn't see the dating scene through rose-tinted glasses. He's a pragmatist who hopes for your happily-ever-after but also prepares an escape plan. He'll hold your hand all through the sucky process of calling it quits. Far from Cupid, he's a merciful psychopomp of love who saves people a boatload of tears and years of therapy. As the Breakup King gets more and more success stories under its belt, it becomes apparent that the clientele isn't randomly selected by an algorithm after all. Either the clients or their partners are linked to a suicide that took place in SEDAH high school five years ago. Who truly is Nate Montecristo and what is his relationship to the schoolgirl who took her life?…

This story was inspired by the events surrounding COVID-19. WHEN PASSION IS OUTLAWED, LOVE WILL BE WEAPONIZED. On alternate-history Earth, society is divided into two groups. The Synths a.k.a. the "Angels": lifelike androids with human consciousness; beautiful, rational and benevolent. The Skins: ordinary humans who, either by choice or by necessity, don't have artificial bodies. In this different yet all too familiar world, human connection is rapidly diminishing. The invasion of a mysterious new virus will change everything and everyone. **** Archer "Archie" Anteros Cortez is a Synth living a comfortable, albeit boring, life in a condominium tower. Normally devoid of emotion, he tries his hand at keeping an analog journal. With every entry he pens, recording current events, his fling with a Synth debugger, and his interactions with a young Skin girl who seeks sanctuary in his condo unit, he finds his consciousness widening. Archie's perfect little world and the entire world beyond it are about to be turned upside-down. A virulent, highly communicable virus called the Novel Choreavirus has risen from its icy grave in the permafrost. On Skins, it causes psychosis and a violent death. On Synths, the effects are rarer but also documented: irrational behavior linked to the vestigial emotion of eros. To contain the pandemic, lockdowns and social distancing are imposed in countries around the world. In the Philippines, the Greater Intramuros Area reactivates the flood walls, effectively locking out most of the Skins.…

LOVE GROWS EVEN IN THE STRANGEST PLACES. When Nate Esposito dies in a diving accident, he realizes he isn't ready to leave everything behind, including his girlfriend and soulmate Samantha. He falls into an underworld prison where the only way out is through an eccentric reaper named Septimus Rex. As head reaper, Septimus leads an army of supernatural Crows tasked with the cold deportation of overstaying spirits from the human realm. But the fates smile on Nate because the head reaper has problems of his own. He has fallen in love with a mortal girl; an abhorrent sign of weakness that, if discovered by the Crows, will start a power struggle in hell. With Nate's help, Septimus must now attempt to confess his feelings to the girl of his dreams so he can go back to being devoid of human sentiment. Nate is reincarnated as a kitsune reaper and hatches an escape plan to the surface world. But he finds that things in the underworld are not what they seem and Septimus' problems run deeper, somehow even linked to Nate's own mysterious past. "Atropos In Love" offers a fresh view of a taboo. It shows a human side to Death and proves that love defies time. It's both a love story and a fantasy, with elements of human drama. It combines all the ingredients of an enduring story: noble love, loyal friendship, and hope against all logic.…
