Ice by Jonathan Morris
In search of exotic

arrive 700 feet underground, in a mine in
Northern Mexico only to run into a
scientific expedition. Among their
number, an exobiologist. Theyre all
on the hunt for alien life! Deep
underground, the team finally uncovers a
cave of vast crystals like ice,
despite the heat. And inside the crystal:
something frozen. Something trapped in
time. If only it were something simple,
like a monster. But its far, far
worse than that.
Cortex Fireby Ian
The Doctor brings Flip to the
futuristic city of Festin, the best
vantage point to witness a unique
astronomical light show. In a city
governed by the all-powerful network
known as the Cortex, theyre soon
identified as outsiders nihilists,
perhaps, responsible for a wave of terror
thats been sweeping the city
But the truth is different. The people of
Festin are burning up. Spontaneously
combusting. And no-one knows why.
