About MM Schreier
MM Schreier is a classically trained vocalist who took up writing as therapy for a mid-life crisis.

A firm believer that people are not always exclusively right- or left-brained, in additional to creative pursuits Schreier manages a robotics company and tutors maths and science to at-risk youth.

All Worlds Wayfarer is a quarterly literary magazine specializing in character-and-theme-driven speculative fiction. We celebrate stories that take readers on tours through wonderful and terrifying realms, evocative visions, and eye-opening new lives. When our readers come home, they should return ever so slightly changed for having made the journey. After all, the most powerful stories transcend, enlighten, and entertain at once.
“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” -Plato
Our winter solstice 2019 issue includes 13 stories spanning the speculative fiction spectrum:
The Children of Gods by MM Schreier
"She didn’t answer. Instead, she reached out with her pail and scooped up asteroids, meteorites, stardust."
The Fool by Ashley Clayson
"Tori hated that phrase, time travel. As if that was all she was doing. As if she wasn’t one of the world’s leading experts in tempo-spatial multiverse splits."
Dragon Crossing by Jennifer Shelby
"Gavin recognized it now. The sound of a dragon in mourning. He’d imagined this when he thought of what his funeral might be like."
Priestess of the Waters by Rebecca Buchanan
"Sallali pulled out the clove cigarette and rolled it between his fingers: a nervous tell. 'The nymphs won’t let the body go.'”
La Pequeña Roja by Abby Vogler
"It wasn't a real island, not like the ones that the old folks talked about. Their islands were dome-shaped concrete houses that dotted the Okaloosa wetlands like bubbles in bath water."
The Barn by Ria Hill
"'I see a sign,' he says. 'But it’s not much help. It just says ‘aeternam.’'"
Children of the Pulsars by Matthew Winchester
"It had cost him $1500 to get it there—there being a rocky exoplanet dubbed Tiyan-54b. He had chosen it because it was unpopular, drawing significantly less traffic than the many earth-likes that clogged Instagram feeds."
Ari and the Tiger by H.R. Wasserstein
"Ari can’t remember her life before the tiger stalked her. She steps out into the sun, feels the warmth of it on her skin, and knows that he is there."
The Mangaka Lover by Russell Hemmell
"'You can’t make love…because of one of your characters? Is he jealous, maybe?' I tried to keep the incredulity out of my voice, but irony seeped in nonetheless."
The Rat-Bug War by Avra Margariti
"'You want the bugs to lay eggs in your ears? The rats to gnaw your bones? Fine by me. Just warn me next time I decide to keep you safe.'"
Lost Loves by Joyce Reynolds-Ward
"We reached the space where the woman and the horse had disappeared into the wall and Sox stopped. He nuzzled the wall twice, then repeated his mournful whicker."
Candlelight by Barry Charman
"Is this a dream? An understandable thought.
Ghost or ghoul... these apparitions may be nothing more than wisps but just because you can't touch them doesn't mean they are any less terrifying.

Stories take us beyond the bounds of our own lives-into new worlds and new situations. Perhaps most importantly, they invite us into new minds. Through the eyes of the characters we temporarily become, we not only live other lives, but discover new ways of looking at our own. Speculative fiction takes us a step farther-beyond the bounds of humanity, itself.
In Through Other Eyes, the first All Worlds Wayfarer anthology, immerse yourself in 30 unique stories featuring non-human protagonists, from aliens to dragons and monsters to mythical beings. Become someone-and something-else.
With stories by Martin Hill Ortiz, Elaine M. Lies, J. S. Watts, MM Schreier, Charlotte Williams, Kurt Newton, Soren James, Bruce Arthurs, Hailey Piper, Chrissie Rohrman and John Adams.
Twelve original works of fiction written by four teams invite you to explore unique perspectives on historical figures, the coming end of civilization, and some unusual events in between. Meanwhile, with six essays exploring the importance of writing groups and support and “behind the scenes” interviews with the authors, the nonfiction aspects of the book teach us the value of working with others. No matter how personal an endeavor, good writing is never truly a solitary undertaking.

Death? Taxes? Please.
Dread naught but Time.
All these things? We like to think so, and certainly with The Corona Book of Science Fiction we’ve tried to create something special – a multi-author sci-fi collection where each contribution embodies both great imagination and great storytelling, and which collectively covers a mix of themes from the fantastic to the topical, from AI to Z, all topped off with a last story so touching it has been proved to reduce grown men to tears.
The Corona Book of Science Fiction also includes potted biographies of all its 16 writers and a list of author website and Twitter accounts to aid you should this book lead you to the discovery of a new favourite author. We think it might.
