My classmate from Glenbard East found herself in a real scandal when she snubbed my roster as this appears on WritersCafe.org -- hoping I can get this some more traffic as this was in the memory of Andrew Ian Dodge, and dedicated to the roster of Issue Five. I found myself having to stand up to my classmates because of this roster. When one looks at the articles this would be something that will cause much stir as my 2004 horror story The Fandom Writer. The way this is belted out is inspired by both Richard Matheson and his son R. C.
In the Year 2499, the end of our civilized world is impending. The natural resources are so scarce that even the rich can't get them. To save humanity, The Ark was created. World leaders combined what money they had and had their best engineers, architects, and scientists create a time machine to the future. From different countries a select few were chosen to journey and be in the New Colony.
In the Year 249,997,501; better known as Year 501, the New Colony live in a new Super Continent. The Ark became the government system, and things began to look up for humanity. But soon, the people fell into the habits of their old world. The Ark then started the Hunting Act to fix this. If the people do not follow the laws, miss too many days of school or work, or do not pay taxes or bills on time, their family is eligible for Hunting.
When a family is Hunted, a family member will be taken away from the household. Where they go? No one knows.
Nyah Ajam and Louis Bonfils are about to find out.
