The SF Plot Twist Bundle, curated by Allyson Longueira: I'm a hard reader to surprise. That's to be expected, really, given what I do for a living. As a writer, editor and publisher, I'm far too involved in what makes a good story to be easily taken in by one. So, when I can't forget a story—or find myself getting sucked in to it again and again when I'm supposed to be doing something, you know, work-related—I take note.
And if a writer can surprise me, well, that's something truly unexpected.
Every writer in this bundle did just that: gave me something unexpected. Be it a twist I didn't see coming, a voice I didn't expect to hear, or an expression of emotion I wasn't prepared for, these wonderful stories gave me a great gift. And that's why I've chosen to share them with you in the SF Plot Twist StoryBundle.

Magician's Choice by Stefon Mears
"It's a mystery, a fantasy, a space opera and a corporate espionage story all well balanced with excellent characters, an engaging plot and a really interesting magic system. It thankfully avoids many of the tired UF tropes like hunky werewolves and angsty vampires and whiny, love-lorn teen witches, and concentrates instead on how humans react to magic rather recently re-emerging and shows the difference between the younger generation who were born to magic, and the older, who have had their world turned upside down."– Amazon Review
The Knight Deception by Ron Collins
"There's something about a young attorney flailing around Washington caught in a web of intrigue that he doesn't have the full picture of that gets my heart racing. And Collins did a great job of keeping the race on."– Amazon Review
Day 9 by Robert Jeschonek
"Robert Jeschonek is the literary love child of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman."– Adrian Phoenix, critically acclaimed author of The Maker's Song and Hoodoo series.
The Falls by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"Kristine Kathryn Rusch is best known for her Retrieval Artist series, so maybe you've missed her Diving Universe series. If so, it's high time to remedy that oversight."– Don Sakers, Analog
Daughter of Nothing by Eric Kent Edstrom
"Great plot with twists and turns to keep things jumping."– Amazon Review
Faster by Annie Reed
"You can't go wrong with Annie Reed. Her deftly-crafted tales—with characters as memorable as the stories themselves—far surpass most of what's out there. She deserves a wide audience."– Michael J. Totten, author of Resurrection
