Silver Linings (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences)

by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris

Wellington Books and Eliza D. Braun arrive in Cairo, Egypt, sent from Ministry headquarters on an archival audit. What Wellington hopes will be a stay in the cradle of civilization and a break from the bitter winter of England instead looks to be a brief visit on account of Eliza’s poor attitude and the disdain of the area field director, Marcus Donahue.
The plans for an uneventful collection of case documents and artefacts are soon shattered by a massacre that that can only be described by the visiting archivists as peculiar.
Tales from the Archives are short stories set in the world of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. They explore events mentioned in the novels, characters seen and unseen and may include novel teasers of things to come....

The Stones In Our Path

by Mahad Mubbasher and Mubbasher Khanzada

The house in front of me is dark; a sprawling mass of gothic spires and blackened bricks, surrounded by a broken fence. Curious, I walk through the gaping open gate and approach the entrance, passing several twisted, dying trees. As I approach I notice a small hand mirror hanging on one of the pillars. It shimmers with a strange luminescence, like the imperceptible glow of a lake in moonlight. I step up onto the veranda, take it and examine the reflective surface. A warped, disfigured shape stares back at me...

Lies We Will Tell Ourselves: Science Fiction Short Stories

by Andrew Knighton

“I have no objection to truth,” I said, “but I enjoy untruths too, they’re the building blocks of human culture. Actors pretending to be kings, singers faking heartbreak or elation, novelists inventing heroes in their heads to escape the mindless dullards around them. Reality is a vast sea of tedium interrupted by brief flashes of the repugnant – why would anyone chain themselves to that?”

*

A spin doctor forced to deal with aliens who loath lies.

A squad of soldiers torn apart by the fiction in their midst.

A hunting submarine with its dead captain strapped to the prow, the crew promising that one day they'll revive him.

We all tell lies to get through the day, some of them to ourselves, some to other people. No...
