The Authors Haunt is proud to present the 2009 Summer Mini-Anthology.  The theme of this anthology was "Tomorrow".  Participating authors were challenged to write a Science Fiction story of between 500 and 3,000 words painting a vision of a possible future for humanity.

A total of seven authors participated in this anthology, between them submitting nine stories.  Those submissions are listed below in alphabetical order by title.  At the end of each story you will see a feedback button linking directly to the topic where the story is being discussed.  Authors here are not paid for their work, and the only reward they get for their skill and hard work is the thanks of grateful readers, so please take a moment to show your gratitude.
