Siphon: Power Comes WIth A Price
by Jason Fox
Apollo, a human-alien hybrid with the otherworldly and unwelcomed ability to kill with a touch, is born and imprisoned in Area 51. A moment of skin-to-skin contact with Apollo instantly turns a person to ash—and creates a massive surge of energy that temporarily ignites other superhuman powers within him. Apollo’s government jailers look to study and exploit him, but he escapes as a teenager and, for a time, finds the simple joys of living as a human before his discovery and recapture.
“Siphon reminds me not of traditional science fiction but of a 1980s Stephen Spielberg blockbuster, in literary form.”
