Jason Nugent was born in Cleveland, OH in 1974. He moved to rural Southern Illinois in 1992 and lives there today with his wife, son, and mini-zoo of three cats and two dogs. Jason is the author of two collections of dark fiction short stories: (Almost) Average Anthology and Moments of Darkness and the young adult scifi novel The Selection. Jason has written for Sum’n Unique Magazine and game missions for an independently produced video game titled “Status Quo.”
One of his stories The God’s Eye was selected for inclusion in the 4th issue of SciFan™ Magazine! Short Story Blurb: “Working in a secret military lab, a team of scientists unintentionally bring “life” to their android, forcing the lead researcher to confront her own tragedy.”
Humans colonized the planet Kepler 186f after Earth’s near total global collapse. Soon after, supply missions ended leaving the colonists to themselves, renaming the planet Anastasia and building a new society far different than Earth’s. As population imbalance threatened stability in the settlements, a horrific and brutal institution known as The Selection was created. Centuries later, haunted by the screams of his dead older brother, eighteen year-old Eron fears the unknown terror waiting for him and all boys his age in The Selection. He has thirty days to survive to Victory Point and reunite with his crush Mina. He will have to endure brutal circumstances and forge unlikely alliances if he’s to survive The Selection. Time is short. Threats are constant. Survival means life. Failure means death—or worse.
Jason has also published a short story in a new horror anthology titled Twilight Madhouse, Vol.1. He writes regularly on his blog http://almostaverageblog.wordpress.com and can be found at http://www.jasonjnugent.com.
