A Very Powerful Story

“Christina is a wonderful sci-fi author and she was one of the first authors we asked to take part once the idea was formed. Beyond is the story of a an officer asked to betray his friend and former partner when her past comes into question, it’s a very powerful story and shows the impact one person can have on another by only a few simple acts. Christina also wrote our opening essay which beautifully captured the message we wished to convey with For Love of Leelah.” – Amanda M. Lyons

Such A Good Sci-Fi Story!

“This was such a good Sci-Fi story!! Loved it. When I got to it in the anthology, and read the opening, I was like OOOOH Sci-Fi… and then came all the twists. For a short story, it packed a wonderful punch with modern issues being addressed.” – Corinne Kilgore
