Joshua Hale Fialkov - The Test
The Test follows a group of strangers who awaken in a small suburban neighborhood enclosed in a geodesic dome. They have no memory of how they got there or even who they are. They're told they've survived the apocalypse and it's their job to repopulate the earth. It does not go well from there.

Morgan Davis Foehl - City of Refuge
City of Refuge is set eleven years after an apocalyptic event known as Terminal. Here, San Francisco has become the last bastion of civilization, a utopian walled city free of crime for over a decade thanks to Secura, a brain implant surgically embedded in every city resident that prevents them from committing any violent or aggressive acts. The story follows Jackson, a hardboiled lieutenant in the city's Security Operations task force, as he discovers that a decade of peace and prosperity is about to be horrifically shattered in just one night.

Alan McElroy - Anonymous
Anonymous comes from a very dark and grounded place in today's American culture. So many of us feel lost, disenfranchised, looking back at the fractured moments of our lives and wondering how we can make amends for the damage we've left in our wake? We seek redemption. Marcus Walsh is a man trying to wash the blood from his hands. Our story stands apart because Marcus Walsh is us. A man adrift, fighting his inner demons and seeking a way to balance the scales by helping those who cannot help themselves. Where so many of us look away when we see injustice... Marcus is driven to act.
