About the Anthology

The POWER anthology contains nine short stories, each with their own cover art, in the science fiction and fantasy genres all related to the topic “transfer of power.” There’s also a hidden Easter Egg in each story and if you pay attention you may just sus it out. (Here’s a hint: If you’re a regular VCON attendee, you might have a better chance of noticing the theme of the Easter Egg.)
