In the latest addition to the Future Chronicles series of sci-fi anthologies, the answer to all of these questions is a resounding yes. From first contact to last stand, these original short stories range from quiet tales of personal connection to adrenaline-infused inter-species space conflicts. Each tale promises to present you with a different look at what intelligent alien life might be like -- and how we Earthlings might respond to it.
The Alien Chronicles features stories by bestselling authors Hugh Howey (WOOL), B. V. Larson (the Starforce series), and Jennifer Foehner Wells (Fluency), plus twelve more of today's top authors in science fiction.
Will these "post-human" intelligences be our friends? Our servants? Our rivals? What will we learn from them? What will they learn from us? Will we allow them to lead their own lives? Will they have basic human rights? Will we?
Science and society will be forced to address these questions sooner than you think. But science fiction is addressing these questions today. In The Robot Chronicles, thirteen of today's top sci-fi writers explore the approaching collision of humanity and technology.

In the depths of the silo, water is pouring in at an unstoppable rate. Ace, along with a team of Divers, are doing the best they can to avert this disaster, but it may not be enough.
When Ace proposes another, more drastic way of saving the silo's population, he is banished for his sin of toxic words. What happens next is unprecedented and will shake the foundations of a society expressly designed to be infallible.
Silo Submerged is a 75,000 word novel that takes the reader on a new journey through the vivid world Hugh Howey created with his Silo Saga (WOOL, SHIFT, and DUST). This series was published with the full support of Mr. Howey.
"As good as the source material -- if not better! I loved this story and hardly breathed as I read it straight through." --HUGH HOWEY, author of Wool.
"We all have a reason for being here, we're just not sure what it is."
Time is running out. As the Great Flood threatens to consume the silo, Ace and a team of divers are in a desperate battle to avert disaster. When a terrible accident destroys the person he cares about most, Ace has little left to live for.
After nearly succumbing to the silo's flooded depths, he realizes that drastic measures must be taken in order to save their underground home. But those in charge deem his ideas too dangerous, his methods too forbidden, and he is shunned for his sin of toxic words.
When an opportunity for redemption presents itself, Ace has only one question: Why should he fight to save these people, if they aren't willing to help themselves?
*The Runner contains plot elements found in Hugh Howey's Wool Omnibus (Wool 1-5).
After Ace fails to clean the sensors, he disappears over a hill and out of sight, leaving chaos and confusion in his wake. Nothing could have prepared him for what he found on the other side.
The Watcher is a shocking account of what happens when boundaries are crossed, when taboos are broken, and when two silos are thrown into the toxic winds of change.
Is there truly no hope? Find out in this thrilling finale of the "Silo Submerged" saga which began with the best-selling novella, The Runner.
Following the events of The Runner, Ace's actions send the lives of thousands into turmoil. To make matters worse, damage from the encroaching flood has caused sensitive electronic equipment to malfunction, which has unforeseen consequences for the young men and women of the silo.
Book 3, The Watcher, is now available for kindle.
