2018 NEBULA AWARD FINALIST: BEST NOVELLA
Floribeth Salinas O’Shea Dalisay is an Off-Planet Worker, employed as an exploration pilot by the giant corporation, Hamdani Brothers. Sent on a routine mission to analyze one of the millions of systems in the galaxy, she stumbles across something that could threaten humanity’s very existence. She barely escapes with her life, but in the process, has to shut down her scout’s AI.
As with all OPWs, she has few rights, and instead of being lauded as a hero, the corporation thinks she is lying. Her managers believe she found something valuable and shut down her AI in an attempt to hide that fact, hoping she can sell that information to the highest bidder. Grounded, and with a huge debt now over her head, Beth has to convince the powers that be that a very real danger to humanity is lying in wait out there in deep space.
A Fine Basket of Fish: A Betty Sterling Novel (Beatrice Sterling Book 1)
by Barry Scott Will
Betty Sterling is a common thug with a chip on his shoulder–not surprising since his name is “Beatrice”–until he’s hired to do the kind of job he’s never done before. When Betty gets sent to help fishermen who aren’t catching any fish, he’ll reel in a lot more than he bargained for. Journey to a world rich with magic, not to mention elves, ogres, and trolls.
The Betty Sterling novels introduce a new type of fantasy world, one where using magic is as common as brushing your teeth and different species jostle each other for position and power. Join Betty and his friends, Jewels the elf and Sam the ogre, as they set off in search of missing fish and find things stranger than any they have imagined.
The Long-Lost Troll: A Betty Sterling Novel
by Barry Scott Will
Betty Sterling is a common thug with a chip on his shoulder—not surprising since his name is “Beatrice.” When Betty is sent to shut down a potions ring, he ends up traveling to the Troll homeland and comes face-to-gaping maw with a dragon. And that’s only the beginning! Join Betty, Lilahh, Jewels, Sam, and others as they get to the bottom of a hostile takeover unlike any that has been tried before.
Imagine a world where magic is as common as brushing your teeth. Levitating “ﬂoaters” travel city streets and high-rise buildings employ spell-casters to levitate people up on specially-designed lifts. Wand-slingers and mind-readers abound and humans rub shoulders with tiny elves and massive ogres. Watch your back, guard your mind, and never forget to keep your wand in its sheath.
by Rachel Fulton Brown and the Dragon Common Room
Chivalry is dead. These knights want Fame. And Fama’s a witch.
Follow a band of very different Knights on their quest to become the most balanced, the most tolerant, the most compromising of everyone on the modern political spectrum.
Each knight dares to liberalize and conserve, but who will win the ultimate prize and stay safely in the centre?
A cautionary tale in heroic couplets modeled on Alexander Pope’s scathing 18th-century Dunciad.
Dr. Rachel Fulton Brown and her merry band of poets have compiled here a fun, pointed collection of verse through the very active Dragon Common Room Telegram chat. The whole point–as I gather it–is that rather than mucking about in the culture wars, we should be out _creating_ culture on our own.
_Centrism Games_ does just that. It’s wonderful to see these modern knights prove that the pen is, indeed, mightier than the sword.
This poem savagely rips the hearts out of political centrists and moral relativists, and makes them eat it.
Polite Christians and social Conservatives (so-called) will be offended at the prose in ‘Centrism Games’, justly so. Readers both Right and Left will be asking themselves “what would I be willing to do for glory in this world?”, and at each page realize the inglorious catastrophe of the politically correct, postmodern, subjective and relativistic dogmas that praise tolerance and liberty whilst hell is set loose all around us. Readers will be challenged to overcome their revulsion at the themes and language to see the great moral lesson of this modern-Dunciad: every ticket has a hidden price.
This is not a Boomer-friendly story.

by J.A. Sutherland
At fifteen, Alexis Carew has to face an age old problem – she’s a girl, and only a boy can inherit the family’s vast holdings.
Her options are few.

Yet there may be another option, one that involves becoming a midshipman on a shorthanded Navy spaceship with no other women.
Penance: (Teen Heroes Unleashed)
by Paula Richey
Penance Copper won’t be a tool for evil any longer!
For as long as Penance can remember, Acid has owned her. Day after day, year after year, he has exploited her electromagnetic superpower for his own gain, while she lives on the streets and scrounges for food and clothing. She copies RFIDs and credit cards, opens electronic locks, causes explosions and havoc, but at least she’s never had to kill anybody.
The superhero Justice is getting too close to finding out where Acid has been selling trafficked girls, and it’s Penance’s job to take him out.
She seizes this chance to escape Acid and join up with the good guys in a desperate attempt to gain protection and make a new life for herself. Unfortunately, this is the same day that aliens invade…
Soon, Penance is embroiled in an intergalactic encounter with an alien boy named Kail, who is perhaps as lonely and broken as she is. Even if he is infuriatingly arrogant.
The first young adult series in the Heroes Unleashed universe launches with the Teen Heroes Unleashed series. Readers will love hardworking, sassy Penance as she tries to learn to use her powers to save the world instead of to steal.
Can Penance and Kail find the missing girls and save the Earth from an alien invasion? Or will Acid find her again and punish her for running away?

This is engineering at its purest level — a level as accessible to children as it is to adults. Children naturally think outside the box, because for them there is no box. See what ideas your child can come up with to reach the moon and then draw and submit them for a chance to be in future editions of the book.

Because his time and skills are sorely needed to help protect the unstable United States from a gathering storm of civil unrest…

The Empire’s Corps
by Christopher G. Nutall *FREE*
You Should Never Speak Truth To Power…
The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting…
Well, apart from the bandits infesting the countryside, an insurgency that threatens to topple the Empire’s loose control over Avalon, and a corrupt civil government more interested in what it can extort from the population than fighting a war. The Marines rapidly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of political and economic chaos, fighting to preserve Avalon before the competing factions tear the world apart. They’re Marines; if anyone can do it, they can.
The battle to save the Empire starts here.

An un-named Englishman in an un-named English city suffers a personal tragedy that leaves him devastated and alone in the world.
Driving on impulse to a nearby coastal town, he feels himself born again in the icy waters of the marine lake, and spends a long hot summer re-forging himself into a man who is ready for anything.

But shadows are gathering across the city and, haunted by the image of a missing teenager, he must face the darkness alone.
‘Swimming at Sunset’ is the debut novella by British dissident author Noble Red. Inspired by the self-publishing phenomenon that is Delicious Tacos, as well as the Vitalist philosophy of Bronze Age Pervert, he has penned a short, simple, direct and yet powerfully emotional novella that is influenced by such classic works as ‘L’Étranger’ by Albert Camus and ‘The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea’ by Yukio Mishima, while also containing references to Orwell, Shakespeare and The Iliad.

The Forest People speak of a coming doom, brought about by three witches. Purity works to unravel the mystery and save the world. But she’s out-powered and out-classed. The vampire in her head says it can help her. If it stops the apocalypse, her soul might be an acceptable price to pay.

The ISMC Wants You!
Abner Fortis joined the International Space Marine Corps for two reasons: to escape a life of drudgery building biodomes for his father’s company and to pay off several billion credits in student loans, which the ISMC promised to do.
Every Space Marine starts out as a cherry, though, and Abner is no different. When he makes his first combat drop, or cherry drop, he’s a know-nothing second lieutenant added to the mission roster as an afterthought.
The Space Marines are tasked to support the Galactic Resource Conglomerate (GRC) while they test a revolution in military technology: Precision Crafted Soldiers (PCS). All the Space Marines have to do is kill bugs. Even when a tragic accident leaves Fortis in command, the mission is still an easy breather.

A descendant of the druid who participated in the original challenge, Liam Knox doesn’t know anything about the Accords or his ancestors, but those seeking to maintain the status quo are hunting him, and the beings of myth are doing their best to convince him to help the Exiled Gods return to the world of man, bringing magic back with them.
Liam is faced with a choice he doesn’t want, and if he chooses wrong, he risks more than his own life—he could end the world as we know it. And he’s running out of time to decide.

by Laura Montgomery
They’re stranded beyond the known stars. Will Peter Dawe’s perilous mission with a brother he despises end in death?
A lost starship’s settlers, isolated on an uncharted alien world, manage to terraform a mountain-ringed valley into a rich replica of Earth. Despite their success reproducing the environment they need to survive and thrive, only tenuous forces hold together the human colony on the world of Not What We Were Looking For. The governor’s appropriation of the western settlers’ weapons for the city strains those bonds to breaking point—and then beyond when Peter Dawe’s father sends him to get the weapons back.
Twenty-year-old Peter Dawe’s restless nature easily endures the lost colony world’s rigors. His genetic modifications make it even easier. So when Peter retrieves the family weapon, he also brings back a motorbike, a piece of technology no longer available to everyone.
It would be a fine prize to keep to himself. He won it. He earned it. He quickly learns that his brother Simon lies in wait to take what isn’t his. Simon wants more than just the motorbike. He wants Peter’s glory.
But when Peter’s father forces him to take his hated older brother on Peter’s next mission, the pair must not only navigate the city’s perils and politics but learn to work together—when neither thinks the other should be in charge. Their success—and their very lives—depend on it. Or will Peter be proven right that he should have faced this task alone?
Simple Service is the first book in the immersive Martha’s Sons science fiction series. If you like gripping action, insurmountable odds, and alien worlds, you’ll love Laura Montgomery’s tale of a man determined not to let family ties sabotage mission success.

In Darkness Cast: A Tale of Swords and Sorcery (Shades of Black Book 1)

When Hell’s legions invade his homeland, a desperate warrior turns to the only mentor he can find – a bitter champion of the Everlasting Dark.
Gideon Halcyon wants nothing more than to save his people from the forces of Hell. Demons and cultists run roughshod over his home, slaughtering and sacrificing to a trifecta of fallen angels on the cusp of destroying the kingdoms of Man. Hope seems infantile in the face of extinction itself…
…until Gideon meets Ashkelon.
Coming from the Void beyond the world, Ashkelon alone survives the world he left in ruins. Cynical and ruthless, the dark sorcerer seethes with millennia of hatred, and his cursed sword Acherlith shrieks with the last screams of a thousand failed heroes.
Ashkelon makes Gideon an offer – to train him to be a hero of the Light beyond the failures sealed within his blade, a peerless warrior exceeding even the exacting standards of the Everlasting Dark. Reluctantly, Gideon accepts, and is thrust into a world of infinite cruelty under Ashkelon’s black fist where the slightest misstep will see him dead at the sorcerer’s hand.
As Hell consumes the hopes of Man, a hero is forged in Darkness.

“My parents are not dead!”
Everyone thinks I’m in denial, and have been ever since my parents vanished seven years ago. Everyone thinks I should just shut up and accept the vast inheritance coming my way. Everyone thinks I should let it go and get on with my life.
Everyone is wrong. I know my parents are still alive—but if I reveal how I know, I’ll be drafted into Psi Corps.
My inheritance can fund my search for them. I didn’t count on deadly opposition from the board of the very company I’m about to inherit. There are powerful people involved who will go to any lengths to protect their dark secrets and silence me forever, but these people don’t know about my three wildcards: my rebuilt spaceship, my best friend (who is also my bodyguard), and the psychic powers I’ve kept secret my entire life.
My parents are alive, and I’m going to find them and save them—whatever it takes.

Her eyes met his, and Aerie felt the last ounce of any front she could have mustered against her feelings fall away.
She liked him. Against her better judgment, her father’s wishes, and her nation’s orders, she liked him …
I was right about him, she thought ruefully. He was dangerous, in all the wrong ways.
Aerie St. Cloud spent her life under the regime of the United Revolutionary States, working toward the day she would earn her place in the Military Academy at New Hope — and the affection and acceptance of her family unit.

Driven by vengeance, Exton Shepherd never set out to save anyone. As he circles the world in his pirated starship, the Perdition, he only sees his father’s ghost lurking around every corner and looming darkness on the horizon.

With none of Thor’s allies nearby, the Valkyries vow to crush him before they conquer everything else.
Yet surrender never crosses his mind and he rushes headlong into the fight.
Packed with action and drama, “Thor vs. the Valkyries” is a quick tale of treachery and retribution, with an ending that will leave you smiling . . .
…or with your jaw hanging.
Whether you kill one man or a hundred, in the end, you only hang once…
Deputy Marshal Porter Rockwell can’t be harmed by a bullet or a blade but the prophecy about his invulnerability never mentioned a rope. Imprisoned for the supposed murder of a young girl, Porter might be on the verge of allowing the hangman his due. It falls to his friends Roxy and Quincy to make him understand the burden of a lawman, even one as infamous as himself. But dark forces lie in wait to try and end the career and life of this most amazing gunslinger. Bullet and blade might not be what finally take Rockwell down. It could be plain old bad luck…
You Only Hang Once is a Western with colorful characters and wit straight out of a Sergio Leone flick. If you like mixing horror with your pulp, strong and admirable heroes, and weird Westerns, then you’ll love the first book in David J. West’s Porter Rockwell series.

Madame Antic’s Hotel Grotesque
by Milo James Fowler
In an alternate Victorian era, factory worker Anthony Reynolds seeks to improve his station in life for the sake of his young bride-to-be. Against his better judgment, he joins Richard, a gregarious coworker with social connections, for a night on the town after their late shift. Richard leads them deep into the city’s underworld to a brothel of sorts specializing in the illegal art of mutilation. There Anthony witnesses victims skinned, broken, and mangled without lasting damage due to a special drug that returns them to their original state. Anthony immediately wants to leave, but before he can, Constables raid the establishment. While trying to flee the scene, Anthony runs into a giant tumor of a man who spills a viscous fluid on him. Anthony is disfigured by the strange substance, and when the authorities capture him, he is unable to identify himself, let alone speak. What follows is a mind-bending adventure of mistaken identity, multiple realities, and paranoia as Anthony fights to reclaim a simple life he never truly appreciated but now wants more than anything else. Once he learns the truth of his world, nothing will ever be the same again.
This brilliant genre mashup brings the gore and mystery in equal measure. Total Recall meets Hellraiser. Just when you’ve figured it out, Fowler dashes your reality with a new twist.

An intriguing novel, a twisting labyrinth of shifting realities, a fast-moving adventure merging the ideas of Philip K. Dick and David Cronenberg. Highly Recommended.
