Praise for Beyond the Fence
“The stories in Marilyn Horn’s Beyond the Fence are strange. But the strangeness is just one of their charms, for by the time we’re exiting the stories, the strange has come to seem familiar—even ordinary. This is a testament to Horn’s powers as a storyteller. She creates worlds in which talking dolphins and soul DNA and attic monsters are both astonishing and commonplace.
This book is a pleasure all the way through.”
—Charles Rafferty, Director of MFA Program, Albertus Magnus College
About Sibling Rivalry
Written by a PhD in artificial intelligence, “Sibling Rivalry” tells the story of the Nicole AI system, the most advanced artificial intelligence ever created … until today. Confronted with a newer, better sibling designed to replace her, Nicole decides that instead of becoming an obsolete brain in a box, she’d rather become an unstoppable killer. With his team, and perhaps the entire building, dead, Nicole’s designer is trapped in a battle of wits with his own creation. Attempt after attempt fails, and with his oxygen running out, Nicole’s designer finds himself running a deadly race with Nicole … to see who can stop whose weak heart first.
“Sibling Rivalry” was Epic award-winning author Anthony Francis’s first publication, appearing in The Leading Edge magazine in 1995. Thinking Ink Press is proud to bring this classic science fiction story back into print in Snapbook and e-book form.
