About Adam Heine
Adam Heine lives in Thailand where he and his wife foster kids with nowhere to go (current value: ten kids; current status: only mostly insane). He spends a lot of time training these kids to be gamers, thinkers, and supervillains. (Though a few insist on being good at sports and stuff; he tries not to hinder them).
By day, Adam is the Design Lead for the upcoming computer role-playing game Torment: Tides of Numenera. By night, he writes science fiction and fantasy for whomever will pay him. His short stories have appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Paizo's Pathfinder Tales, and the Tomorrow's Cthulhu anthology. You can see more of what he's written and what he's working on at adamheine.com.
He desperately tries to pretend that he still has spare time in which to watch Marvel shows on Netflix and play the latest Shadowrun RPG.

This is our stranger tomorrow. These are transhumanist, near-future science fiction horror stories set in the Cthulhu Mythos. They exist in our world of the coming decades, an era of big science and—what is that? We’ll be right back...
Labs gleam and servers hum as scientists unravel the secrets of the universe. But as we peel away mystery, the universe stares back. Even now, terrors rise from the Mariana Trench and drift down from the stars. Scientists are disappearing—or worse. Experiments take on minds of their own. Some fight back against the unknown, some give in, some are destroyed, and still others are becoming… more.
The human and the inhuman are becoming more challenging to distinguish. Mankind is changing, whether it wants to or not, with brand new ways of thinking. What havoc is wreaked by those humans trying to harness and control their discoveries? As big science progresses and the very fundamentals of this universe are understood, what stories are being hushed up?
