Franklin Pierce in Death of a Vice President
by Eric M. Hamilton
Madness, murder, and mystery permeates throughout this Edgar Allan Poe-inspired thriller!
It is early April 1853.
Franklin Pierce, the newly elected President of the United States, has suffered the greatest personal tragedy of his life, plunging him into a depression fueled madness.
The Vice President, William King, unexpectedly appears at the White House in the middle of the night having overheard details of an international assassination conspiracy that threatens both King and Pierce. Unfortunately, Vice President King is killed without any clue as to who could have done it.
Can President Franklin Pierce overcome his personal demons and discover who killed the Vice President before they kill him too?
Franklin Pierce in Death of a Vice President is a thrilling psychological horror, starring the president from the 1850’s you forgot in 4th Grade. It’s an exciting read, and you don’t have to be familiar with Franklin Pierce at all to enjoy the story (in fact, it may be a better story if you go in knowing almost nothing). This is perfect for the American history-buff and “normal people” alike!

Ten of superversive’s finest team up to bring you tales from a serial killer’s basement, to the weird west, to the average small town, all featuring “mostly” ordinary men and women fighting back against the forces of darkness.
Review: A collection varied in style from hauntingly beautiful, to high octane action, all mix with a common theme, overcoming evil. The stories can all be read on their own but some involve characters with an establish history and previous stories. Every story is at least very good and several are excellent, like John C.

Seeds of Terra (The Terran Space Project Book 1)
by Alex Rath
The race to colonize is on!
With industrial expansion on Earth bringing the planet’s habitability into question, there’s only one place to look. Up. And, with both the Moon and Mars colonized, the next best option is outside the Solar System. Captain Maxwell Reeves, a former test pilot for the United States Space Force, and his wife, Annica, moved to Switzerland to assist in that effort. They both joined the Terran Space Project, a group with no allegiance to any country or government, with one purpose—to send people to space.
The Wormhole Traversal Project was formed within the TSP four years ago when exploration vessels detected a wormhole at the edge of the solar system, and a probe launched to test the wormhole showed back up in the Alpha Centauri system.
Four hundred people signed on to be part of the mission to Alpha Centauri, and Traveler, Earth’s first extra-solar colony vessel, was constructed. Now, Captain Reeves is ready to take the ship and its crew and colonists through the wormhole to find a new home, but some questions remain. Will they actually end up at Alpha Centauri? What will they find there? And—worst of all—when the traitor emerges, will Captain Reeves be ready for the most difficult mission of his life?

As a child, he and his three friends found their way to a magical elfin world and saved it from the Winter King.
Now a grown man successful in the world, Tommy has all but forgotten his childish adventures. He hasn’t even spoken to those friends in years.
Then a silver key and a black cat show up on his front porch, and Tommy starts to remember. Just because he grew up and left Faerie behind doesn’t mean that Faerie is finished with him.
Tommy is called to be the hero of England, and for that, he wants his friends at his side. But the real world has weighed them down and they are no longer the children he remembers. And evil things from childhood stories grow older and darker and more frightening with the passing of the years.
One Bright Star to Guide Them begins where other fairy tales end.
Can Tommy remember the courageous boy he once was, and set aside grown-up things to be a child again to save England? Or will the weight of the world prove to be too much for him and his friends?
SECOND EDITION! Note: This edition has been revised to account for current events and re-edited.
Analysts have long predicted that China would go to war to reintegrate the province of Taiwan. It isn’t a matter of “if;” it’s a matter of “when.” For decades, the only thing that has kept China from invading Taiwan is the American promise to defend it, even if that means World War III. To date, China has not been ready to go that far. But what if China figured out a way to put the United States on the sidelines of their fight to regain Taiwan? Would they do it then?
Drawn from today’s headlines, Red Tide: The Chinese Invasion of Seattle is set in a not-too-distant future where China decides to invade Seattle to use American citizens as high-stakes chips in a game of nuclear blackmail. Will the United States get Seattle back? It will, if a shot down F-18 pilot, a retired Navy SEAL, and a platoon of Army Rangers have anything to say about it.
Written by a former aviator with over 3,000 hours flying attack and reconnaissance aircraft for the United States Navy, including many missions supporting U.S. Special Forces, Red Tide: The Chinese Invasion of Seattle is a look at one possible future that isn’t as improbable as you might think. Events in it are not only possible, they’re already happening. Could China attack the United States to get back Taiwan?
We thought the war against China would be fought in Asia. We were wrong.

Battles in the Black (The Black Chronicles Book 5)
by J.M. Anjewierden
Morgan had a simple plan: sell her captured pirate ship, hire mercenaries, and rescue her parents from her former homeworld. Nothing was going to stop her, not even the pirates trying to take her prize back. All they got for their trouble was two more ships added to Morgan’s forces, but the pirates were only the beginning. The very people she wants to liberate her parents from have invaded her new home, laying siege and cutting them off from the rest of the galaxy.
Desperate for ships and experienced spacers to crew them, Morgan, her crew, and her ships have been conscripted into the Navy of her adopted home, despite the exhaustion of the former and the damage to the latter. Morgan herself has been given the unwanted and laughable rank of Commodore. What for most would be a position of pride only represents the things standing in the way of Morgan’s plan. She has a new plan now; simpler, but also more dangerous.
The rest of the The Black Chronicles is also $0.99 and is on the “Fan Favorite” page.
Hell and Gone (The Retreads Book 1)
by Henry Brown
An Amazon Bestseller!
This rag-tag gang of has-beens has never worked together before, but Dwight “Rocco” Cavarra has less than a week to train them and lead them on the hairiest operation of their lives.
It’s not bad enough that they have to plow through an African civil war, infiltrate a fortified terrorist encampment and steal a black market tactical nuke from a mob of fanatic sociopaths – there are Israeli wild cards in play: two death-dealing Mossad agents who don’t necessarily share Cavarra’s agenda.
When the mission is compromised before it has even started, Rocco and his Retreads are caught between bloodthirsty local warlords and the genocidal government in a fight to the death. And this battle might be just the first in the next world war.
Hell and Gone is a character-driven pulp action thriller that will take you on a wild ride.
Tier Zero (The Retreads Book 2)
by Henry Brown
When a party of American college girls are sold into slavery by human traffickers, a rescue mission is too dirty, too dangerous, and too difficult for any government to touch. That’s where The Retreads come in.
The pirates thought they found the perfect target: a private yacht foolishly sailing through the Malacca Straits, which could discretely and easily be sold on the black market.
The human traffickers thought the boat was hauling the perfect cargo: young, attractive women who would generate income in brothels around the region.
What made the caper not so perfect was that one of the girls had an uncle who took it personally.
Another Amazon Bestseller from Henry Brown…”One helluva adventure writer.” – Jim Morris (author of War Story, The Devil’s Secret Name)
You can take a man out of Special Operations, but you can’t take SpecOps out of the man. Tommy Scarred Wolf calls on his old friend Rocco Cavarra, who still has contacts in the intelligence business.

Armed with all the firepower and force multipliers they can scrounge, shadowed by a team of secret assassins, the Retreads ride again, bringing smoke and taking names. Tier Zero is old-school military adventure you haven’t enjoyed since the full-auto glory days of Able Team and Phoenix Force.
False Flag (The Retreads Book 3)
by Henry Brown
“Thanks, Hank, for the authenticity. Semper Fi!”
A perfect storm is bearing down on the United States of America, combining nationwide financial devastation, conventional and nuclear terror, and Civil War II. High-placed traitors in the Deep State want to make it worse–not better. The Retreads have overcome some long odds in the Sudan and Indonesia, but nothing like this end game on the home front.
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” – Samuel Adams
Diverse Americans are living their lives the best they can during twilight’s last gleaming–most of them never suspecting the turmoil about to come crashing down all around them. Others see the storm approaching, but don’t know what, if anything, can be done to avoid it.
Joshua Rennenkampf loves his country, but prepares for an economic collapse he believes inevitable. Dwight Cavarra is horrified by what looks like an impending race war, but speaking reason into the pressure cooker of irrational hatred might as well be punching at the wind. Tommy Scarred Wolf pushes back against the fundamental transformation from Rule of Law to a Strong Man police state, but can only accomplish so much by himself.
Rennenkampf discovers evidence of what might be a false flag attack in the making. Cavarra is tipped off about a secret hit list of “potential domestic terrorists,” through which he and his friends are targeted. Scarred Wolf has already lost his brother for the sin of poking his nose into government Black Ops; and now must decide whether a little more temporary tranquility for his family is worth the shock and awe to be wrought on the entire country if he fails to take action.
With harbingers of national cataclysm all around, there will be no averting disaster if the false flag conspiracy turns out to be true. These men, who have put their lives on the line for their country so many times already, now have little choice but to treat the threat as real. And in the tumultuous political climate, their lives, fortunes and sacred honor will all be at risk. Where they go one, they go all.
The bestselling Retreads Series turns the corner from military thriller to apocalyptic fiction. False Flag blazes a fiery trail where other political books fear to tread.
Gods & Proxies
by M.R. Kayser
WHEN THE GODS GO TO WAR, YOU HAD BETTER BE SURE THE ONE YOU SERVE WILL PREVAIL…
The invisible god, El Elyon, has promised the young nation of Yacov their own homeland. Trouble is, the land is full of giants, backed up by a pantheon of gods who would rather see Yacov slaughtered to a man.
And they are just men. The Yacovites are desert nomads without even enough swords for all their militia.
Salmon and Othniel are two of the young soldiers who must face the gigantic warriors in battle, starting at the fortress city of Bet-Yariq, with formidable walls that only giants empowered by gods could build.
Brave men’s hearts melt with fear. The very planet reels to and fro as if ready to tear itself apart. But though El Elyon is outnumbered by the enemy gods, and his warriors are far outclassed, he has assured them that he himself will lead them into war, and together they will beat all the odds.
Deke Jones finally has a car ready to compete in the Conquistador—a short but grueling campaign covering racetracks all over the Southwest United States. He can’t wait to challenge the rich boys with their expensive toys, but complications begin stacking up on him before the first flag drops.
First, he is invited to join Stormin’ Norman’s new rock band for a whirlwind tour. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with a musical genius and he can’t let it pass…but it’s scheduled for the very week he needs for last minute wrenching so his car can make the Conquistador’s tech inspection.
Next, he gets tangled up with beautiful bad girl Lena Castillo, just when he was patching things up with a local débutante he lost touch with after high school. Lena has a deadly superpower: the ability to turn any man stupid—and Deke Jones is no exception.
Jones also crosses paths with five-time Conquistador champ Bob Tilford, and there’s bad blood between them from the starting gun. It was going to be challenging enough racing against Tilford with his big-time sponsors, high-dollar mechanic and world-class GT car, but Tilford also has tremendous influence over race officials he doesn’t hesitate to use in his grudge against Deke Jones. To keep it all interesting, Deke’s co-driver bails on him at the last minute, with no time to scrounge up a replacement.
Get your motor runnin’. Deke Jones is gonna close this summer out with a bang, one way or another.
Shadow Hand Blues: A Cold Case Murder Mystery (A Deke Jones Romp)
by Michael Kayser
In 1954 budding blues virtuoso Waymon “Tornado” Fuller is executed for the murder of a North Carolina woman. In 1994 nomadic hot-rodder, moonlighting private investigator and blues aficionado Deke Jones stumbles upon Fuller’s guitar, triggering a mudslide of buried truths. Fuller’s innocence is one revelation. Another is “Shadow Hand Blues”–the last song he recorded, which Jones has never heard of.
An impromptu search for the studio where the recording session took place leads Jones to a small hippie town seemingly still enjoying the Summer of Love, where the psychodelic atmosphere turns from surreal to hostile when he begins asking questions.
Vintage Fender Telecaster in one hand, steering wheel of his radical Cyclone Spoiler II in the other, Deke Jones launches a one-man crusade to exonerate the infamous musician and find the obscure recording. The blood trails are 40 years cold, but neither corrupt good ol’ boy cops, sex industry sadists, nor fanatical pyramid-schemers can throw Deacon Jones off this case.
This investigative pilgrimage propels Jones right into the bloodstained fingers of a clandestine power elite Tornado Fuller called the Shadow Hand.
The Curly Wolf
by M.R. Kayser

Just as the nesters are banding together to resist the land grab, Blue Stone’s newest deputy rides through their valley.
Before they realize the sleepy-eyed youngster called Arizona is a veteran gunfighter hired to bulldoze them off their claims, he has already broken bread with them, danced with their daughters…and stolen the heart of one.
Young Theresa Gutierrez believes Arizona is more than a curly wolf with quick trigger fingers and a stone-cold heart, but her parents and neighbors have good reason to believe otherwise.
What everyone agrees upon is that, in the brewing range war, the Arizona Kid is liable to be right smack in the midst of the killing.

Rebel Heart (Engines of Liberty Book 1)
by Graham Bradley
For centuries the British Empire has ruled territories the world over, maintaining its grasp on its far-flung colonies by way of magic and brute force. Any successful attempt at rebellion is short-lived, as the rebels do not have the benefit of wizardy on their side.
The most recent attempt at secession happened in the New World in 1776, some two hundred years ago. General George Washington nearly succeeded at rallying his countrymen in a military revolt against the Crown. But disunity and infighting ultimately brought them down, and Washington was executed in a public spectacle.
Most people gave up. But not all.
The cleverest and most driven survivors went to ground. They learned from their mistakes. They planned, they plotted, they tinkered and they toiled. They began to develop new weapons and machines that would level the playing field. With technology at their fingertips, anyone could stand toe-to-toe with a British mage and come off conqueror.
The uprising has been a long time coming. The arsenal is as large as it’s going to get. Now all the “technomancer” army needs is soldiers, young patriots like Calvin Adler, who has had enough of the mages pushing him around.
Freedom beckons, if he will but pay the price in blood, sweat, and tears.
This is the New Revolution.
Kill The Beast
by Graham Bradley
In this spoof on a classic fairy tale, village hero Gautier must get past his recent spurning by local heartthrob Robinette, who has gone missing from their French mountain town.
When newcomer Danielle arrives in the middle of the night, claiming to have been attacked in the woods by a giant beast, Gautier sets out to find it and put it down…only to learn that Robinette might be involved, and that his love for her might not be true.
by Graham Bradley
Josie Penninger can see ghosts, and it’s been nothing but trouble for her. She learned not to talk about it in her teens, but that didn’t make the trouble go away.
Now that she’s out of college and short on cash, she decides to embrace her abilities and work with local ghosts to solve old mysteries. And since she lives in Sleepy Hollow, New York, there’s plenty of work to keep her busy.
But then, on Halloween night, an old ghost comes to town with vengeance in his heart and a two hundred year-old score to settle. Using highly advanced spectral technology, he traps ten thousand people inside the town borders and uses them to power a machine that will let him alter history. Even if he fails, his machines might kill everyone Josie knows.
Now she has to team up with a spirit who knows far more about her than he lets on, and a freelancing ghost hunter who shoots first and doesn’t bother asking questions at all. The three of them should be able to take down one simple villainous ghost, right?
Unless he has the deadliest warrior-ghost of the region in his corner…
Packed with action, wit, humor, and good old-fashioned fun, SLEEPLESS HOLLOW is an illustrated adventure that ties in fully with Washington Irving’s classic American horror story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Van Ripplewink: You Can’t Go Home Again
by Paul Clayton
KIRKUS REVIEWS: Clayton… updates the story of Rip Van Winkle in this social novel. In 2015, a backhoe at a construction site in Philadelphia unearths a coffin containing the long-slumbering Van Ripplewink, who went into the ground at age 17… Van attempts to make sense of the new world in which he finds himself. The only problem is that it doesn’t make that much sense to anyone else: in post-Ferguson America, racial tensions are high… Clayton uses the character of Van, with his outsider naiveté, to look into the complex issues surrounding race and justice in America… A serious novel with an amusing premise.
MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWS: Van Ripplewink is a book of complex characters… a fascinating look into what the world has become in less than fifty years. The story is good; the view of the world from its perspective is stark and disturbing reality. 5-Stars
48 years dead, seventeen year old Van Ripplewink wakes in a dark, muddy field… His confusion turns to alarm; everything has changed — the cars, the buildings, and the people. He heads home and finds his parents gone and strangers living in his house. Attacked by a violent Philly street gang, Van is rescued by Charles Davis, a kindly black man. Charles finds Van’s story bizarre, but trusts him and puts him up for the night. It is there that Van meets the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen, Mignon, Charles’s bi-racial niece. Charles tries to help Van, but he has his own problem, namely his girlfriend, Valerie. Charles longs to marry her, but Valerie is already wedded to the welfare system and will not move in with him for fear of losing her benefits.
Van winds up living in a homeless camp where he meets Honest John, a violent, but brilliant, alcoholic computer programmer. Alternating between the tutelage of Charles Davis and Honest John on the mores and unrest of 21st Century America, Van goes to college and finds racial turmoil and revolution in the air.
Finding his bliss writing for the school newspaper, Van spends time with Mignon and her crowd. They’re fun and attractive, but strange, not seeming to have any moral center. He longs to be a part of the group, but that would mean jettisoning the values of his upbringing and time? Can he do it?
Mainstream/literary fiction (with a hint of fantasy) in the style of Bonfire of the Vanities.

Our hero finds himself away from his home the eve of the collapse, trying to figure out what’s going on and unable to make it back. Can he find a place to shelter in the darkness before he freezes in the cold, quiet night?
