    I expected to be fulfilled, less confused when all the secrets about who I am come to light. Instead, the revealed truths have left me more devastated than ever. 
    Chasing ghosts of the past and running into a kid who claims to know all about me isn't all that bad, until I have to put my trust in a complete stranger, and make a deal with a fairy. The clock is ticking. It's only a matter of time before people start to figure out out who I am and where I come from if I'm not careful, and I'm not exactly known for being careful. 
    The truth is, I can handle anything as long as my father doesn't find out that I survived all those years ago. That I'm alive. If he does, that will really be the end. 
    But that's the thing about endings—they always find us much sooner than we expect them to . . .  
    Contains mature themes.

    Alibi Jones hunts for a priceless treasure – the original STAR SEED responsible for altering life on Earth, creating humankind! Moral Dilemmas, Religious Conflicts, Merciless Aliens – and Mercenary Humans – Alibi Jones faces them all – as well as his responsibilities running breakaway outpost The Hornet's Nest – as he tracks down THE STAR SEEDS OF EARTH! 
    Legends tell of the Star Seeds of the Ancient Enemy – A million years ago, as their cruel race died at the hands of those they oppressed, the Ancient Enemy sent thousands of Star Seeds filled with their DNA and the means to re-start their race out into the cosmos, to land on myriad worlds. Their former Servant race, now called The Eldred, arose as the new rulers of settled space, and dedicated themselves to wiping out Star Seeds wherever they were found.  
    But not all were found. Some were hidden - The Flaze and The Domo kept the development of our race a secret from the Eldred, until it was too late for the Eldred to easily wipe us out. The Eldred then lost their war to exterminate humanity, and were instead wiped out.  
    It seems not only are we offshoots of the Ancient Enemy, but somewhere on Earth lies a priceless treasure – the original Star Seed that altered life on our planet! ALIBI JONES is on the hunt for that Star Seed, agreeing to locate it for curious character FINDER as a favor. But Alibi is no longer sure he should turn something so valuable – and potentially POWERFUL – over to a mercenary like Finder. If he manages to track one down in the first place. 
    There is a bit of an obstacle – Alibi Jones is not actually welcome back on Earth right now... 
    An Interstellar Treasure Hunt – Old Familial Dysfunction – Merciless Aliens – and Mercenary Humans as well. Alibi Jones will have to face them all, and face up to the responsibilities and authority that comes with running a growing colony like The Hornet's Nest – in ALIBI JONES AND THE STAR SEEDS OF EARTH!

    The story of Mages Final revolves around Keldon, a dedicated student at The Academy of Magical Arts. The honor student often spends late nights studying and most of his life revolves around his books. More than anything he wants to be a great wizard, and will sacrifice the human pleasures of fun, fellowship, and even sleep to achieve that dream. Things grow worse as finals approach. The pressure is on and Keldon is studying more than ever. As he will find, however, no amount of studying will prepare him for this. The headmaster decides to administer a more practical final in lieu of tests and essays. Instead Keldon will have to journey to a dark lair where many undead abominations await and he will ultimately have to battle a dark and powerful necromancer in order to stop him from achieving his sinister dreams of immortality and lichdom. 
    In order to pass his test Keldon must not only survive by defeating the necromancer and his undead minions, but also by displaying selflessness and virtue. Perhaps he will be his own worst enemy as he faces a dark temptation. Will he survive and pass the test become a mage, and someday a great wizard? Or will he ultimately fail and face the possibility of defeat and oblivion? 
    Short Story Press publishes short stories written by everyday writers.
