"There are secret passages all around you if you know where to look for them." Delany was being punished, and deep in her heart, past the excuses she'd like to make for herself, she knew... More > she'd almost deserved it. And even though that girl, Mattie, had said something dreadful about her father, she knew that she should not have fought with her. Though one can never rewind history to change the past, and so this would be her punishment: to live alone in the old abandoned Greyford house on the outskirts of the Mayfield School for Girls -- a place with its covered furniture, and rooms leading to other unexpected rooms, and she would be completely, and purposefully, alone... or so she thought. Yet there was more to this house than first met the eye: there were secret passages, and hidden treasures, lost and forgotten with the passing time, and a room... a fantastic and otherworldly sort of room, which she had decided to call "the Window Room".< Less
Circumstellar By J. W. Lolite

More > Festival - Science Fiction Honorable Mention. Circumstellar is the first book of the new series by J.W. Lolite. It explores the lore and mystique of ancient Sumerian culture and blends it into a tale of hidden worlds and secret races. It was just another day for me, Ingrid Fairheit, in the not-so-illustrious town of Dust Veil, Tennessee. For my slice of life that included waking up late for school, taking care of my lush aunt, secretly crushing on my best friend Ty, and making sure my glowing purple eyes didn't meet direct sunlight. You know, the usual business. Then a couple of jerks with a magic space rock popped out of thin air, assaulted me, and brought up a whole lot of drama and questions I could've done without. Earth's history is so complicated.< Less
