Somewhither: The Unwithering Realm — Omnibus Version
by John C. Wright

Ilya, as he has secretly dreamed, is called upon to save the mad scientist’s beautiful daughter.

With his squirrel gun, his grandfather’s sword, and his father’s crucifix, Ilya races to save the girl, and, incidentally, the world.

So it is, Ilya Muromets is a big, ugly, motherless boy who does not look like anyone else in his Oregon town.

His father is often absent on mysterious Church missionary work that involves silver bullets, sacred lances, and black helicopters.

One night, Professor Dreadful sends a warning to Ilya that his Many Worlds theory correct, but that his experiments have opened a door that should have remained closed, and his beautiful daughter, Penny, is in trouble.

The 2016 Dragon Award-winner for Best Science Fiction Novel, Somewhither is the first part of A Tale of the Unwithering Realm, a new science-fantasy series from science-fiction master John C. Wright.

It is an adventure, it is a romance, and it is a coming-of-age story of a young man who is not a man, in a world that is only one among many.

It is a tale of a greater and darker evil with longer reach than anything he could imagine, of pain beyond measure, and of the faith required to surmount all three.

It is a story of inexorable destiny written in the stars and the stubborn courage that is required to defy it.

All Men Dream of Earthwomen and Other Aeons
by John C. Wright

Come behold Aeons Near and Far

I convoke the witness of my dreams of things to come, and reveal them as curios and treasures. Behold future wars and children’s power armor, see the planetkiller seeking immortal vengeance against planetkillers, learn whom the choosers of the slain will choose for love, or when the dolphins will inherit the earth, or why all men dream of earthwomen.”

One Bright Star to Guide Them
by John C. Wright

Tommy Robertson was once a king.

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?

Lost Causes
by Richard Nichols


John Buchan is a relic from a bygone age, a man constantly at odds with the modern world; a man who finds sanctuary in the only role that brings him peace of mind – as an assassin for a top-secret British government agency called the Mill. Specializing in what they call ‘ungentlemanly warfare’, its operatives are instructed to kill their targets wherever they find them, irrespective of boundaries, laws, jurisdictions or circumstances. Day-to-day, Buchan lives a simple, anonymous life in the Belgian countryside, restlessly roaming the battlefields of the Western Front in an attempt to kill time. All the while he waits patiently for the message that will signal the start of his next mission. It’s a message that will arrive, the way it always does, hidden within the solutions of the Daily Telegraph’s cryptic crossword puzzle. And when it does arrive, it’s like he’s been reborn, because in Buchan’s world being on a mission is the only time when things really make sense; the only time he feels truly alive. He barely remembers the time before he was recruited by the Mill.

His name wasn’t John Buchan then. In those days he was known as Charlie Hook, a happy-go-lucky, rugby-playing, ex-Rhodesian Light Infantry trooper turned Gurkha officer with an eye for the girls. But Charlie Hook is long dead, and so too are his memories of the events that led to him becoming a professional killing machine. Buchan is getting older now. Retirement beckons, but the man he calls Control has one last mission for him. It involves a ruthless army of some of the world’s worst terrorists, an equally ruthless drug lord, an enormous hurricane and seemingly unsurmountable odds. But it also offers Buchan a last, desperate chance to take revenge on those that took his young life – and love – away from him all those years ago, and he plans to go out with a bang.

Set against a backdrop of unprecedented worldwide socio-political upheaval, Lost Causes is an old-style thriller that moves from the modern-day Ypres Salient and London to the badlands of Northern Ireland and the exotic but deadly jungles of southern Mexico. Mixing the kind of plot found in an Ian Fleming novel with the unashamed masculinity of an Alistair Maclean or Wilbur Smith hero and the tough, muscular prose of Mickey Spillane, Lost Causes is a startlingly intelligent and original work that interweaves dramatic action, sudden violence, stunning plot twists and subtle humour to entertain and inform in equal measure. It will especially appeal to anyone bored by the stale unambitious writing, and inane, politically-correct sensitivities of so many modern novels; as well as anyone looking to understand the sinister and dangerous forces that have plagued our lives for decades and which now threaten to destroy our civilization altogether.

Richard Nichols studied philosophy and psychology at Edinburgh University. He was a businessman for several years before turning his hand to writing. He enjoys watching rugby and visiting battlefields. He hates crossword puzzles.

The Dream of the Iron Dragon: An Alternate History Viking Epic (Saga of the Iron Dragon Book 1) *FREE*
by Robert Kroese


Trapped 1300 years in the past, they have one mission: survive.

In the 23rd century, humanity has been hunted to the verge of extinction by an alien race. When an exploratory ship accidentally travels back in time to Viking age Scandinavia, the human race is given a second chance. Pursued by the power-hungry King Harald, the four surviving crew members join a ragtag band of Vikings as they pillage their way across Europe. It will take all their ingenuity, courage and technical know-how just to survive. But survival is only the beginning. To save humanity, they must somehow return to the stars.

Thus begins a decades-long effort to teach the Vikings to build a craft capable of reaching space—a ship that will come to be known as the Iron Dragon.

THE DREAM OF THE IRON DRAGON is the first installment in the 5-part Saga of the Iron Dragon.

“Terrific storytelling, letter-perfect alternate-history, and the highest stakes for humanity imaginable combine to make this a thrilling start to an exciting new Viking saga. Kroese avoids both romanticizing and demonizing the Vikings, showing them to us in all their humanity, while spinning a tale that pulls no punches and leaves us gasping for more.” – Lars Hedbor

Starship Grifters (A Rex Nihilo Adventure)

Starship Grifters (A Rex Nihilo Adventure) *FREE*
by Robert Kroese

“My favorite read this year. A hilarious space adventure. Hard book to put down.” ―Hugh Howey, author of Wool

A space-faring ne’er-do-well with more bravado than brains, Rex Nihilo plies the known universe in a tireless quest for his own personal gain. But when he fleeces a wealthy weapons dealer in a high-stakes poker game, he ends up winning a worthless planet…and owing an outstanding debt more vast than space itself!

The only way for Rex to escape a lifetime of torture on the prison world Gulagatraz is to score a big payday by pulling off his biggest scam. But getting mixed up in the struggle between the tyrannical Malarchian Empire and the plucky rebels of the Revolting Front―and trying to double-cross them both―may be his biggest mistake. Luckily for Rex, his frustrated but faithful robot sidekick has the cyber-smarts to deal with buxom bounty hunters, pudgy princesses, overbearing overlords, and interstellar evangelists…while still keeping Rex’s martini glass filled.


Aye, Robot (A Rex Nihilo Adventure) (Starship Grifters Book 2)  
by Robert Kroese

Praise for Aye, Robot
“Once again, Kroese gives me a story I can’t put down with a hero I can’t bring myself to despise. A brilliant sequel to one of my favorite space romps of all time.” – Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool

“With this book, Robert Kroese has planted his flag atop Sci-Fi Humor Mountain and dared everyone to knock him off. If this isn’t the funniest book you read all year, there’s something wrong.” – Paul P.

“I’ve never laughed so hard while reading a book.” – Greg O.

“Mr. Kroese is the Douglas Adams of our generation.” – Ellen C.

The Newest Name in Piracy Starts with Arrrrr
Rex Nihilo, interstellar con man… and space pirate? When space grifter Rex Nihilo hijacks a cargo freighter on a whim, he decides that he and his long-suffering robot sidekick Sasha have found their calling as space pirates. But when the ship’s cargo turns out to be a cryogenically frozen religious fanatic who holds the secret to a vast galactic conspiracy, Rex and Sasha find themselves on the run from *real* pirates–as well as agents of the oppressive Malarchy, crazy space cultists and the trigger-happy goons of the Ursa Minor mafia. If Rex is going to get out of this jam alive, he might just have to save the galaxy… again. Aye, Robot is a sequel to Starship Grifters, but it’s not like it’s going to make any more sense if you read that book first, so you should probably just buy this book now while you’re thinking about it. SPECIAL BONUS FOR PEOPLE WHO BUY AYE, ROBOT IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS*: Get an exciting scifi novella, The Yanthus Prime Job, absolutely free!

*Probably also available for people who buy it after that. But maybe not! There’s no way to know!

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. Other survivors of the Sudan mission also rally behind Tommy, signing on for the kind of favor that can never be repaid.

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.

Black Amazon of MarsBlack Amazon of Mars by Leigh Brackett science fiction and fantasy book and audiobook reviews
by Leigh Brackett *FREE*

Grimly Eric John Stark slogged toward that ancient Martian city—with every step he cursed the talisman of Ban Cruach that flamed in his blood-stained belt.

Behind him screamed the hordes of Ciaran, hungering for that magic jewel—ahead lay the dread abode of the Ice Creatures—at his side stalked the whispering spectre of Ban Cruach, urging him on to a battle Stark knew he must lose!

Classic sci-fi from the writer of The Empire Strikes Back.

Review: I picked this up because Gary Gygax recommends Leigh Brackett in his Appendx N to the 1st edition AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide Unfortunately, it is not the beginning of her Mars series, as I discovered, but nearer the end. Even without knowing the protagonist’s backstory, however, it’s a great pulp space opera story in what some authors call Old Mars – the Mars of the pulps, full of ancient cities consumed by endless deserts, canals bearing life-giving water, frozen cities under the polar ice caps, etc. I really liked this one – I’m going to read more! But this is the easiest Brackett book to find on Amazon, so it is where I started!

The Hidden TruthThe Hidden Truth: A Science Fiction Techno-Thriller by [Hans G. Schantz]
by Hans G. Schantz

Change the past. Control the present. Rule the future.

They’ll do anything to hide the truth.
When high school student Peter Burdell uncovers a subtle clue in a dusty book buried deep in a forgotten Appalachian library, he realizes someone altered history. Who’s been lying, and why?

His discovery lands Peter in the cross hairs of the deadly Cabal whose Deep State agents changed the past to control the present, so they can rule the future. Aided by family and friends, Peter races against the odds to expose the conspiracy and uncover the answer to the most important question of his life:

What is The Hidden Truth?

Reviews: “Umberto Eco wishes that he had written these books.”

Hans G. Schantz’ THE HIDDEN TRUTH is most highly recommended. 
It is a gem of a book, a rare find, combining a charming coming of age story, diamond-hard science fiction speculation, a conspiracy thriller, a touch of trenchant political commentary, and, uniquely, a challenge written into a science fiction book of the reigning scientific orthodoxy of the day….

This trilogy works on several levels. In style, theme, in social commentary, in genre, in plot-weaving and world-building, the craftsmanship is top-notch.

Stylistically, it is written in the same journalistic prose as a Heinlein juvenile, but, frankly, is better. Not only are some of Heinlein’s more dubious moral lessons absent, the work attempts something more ambitious: introducing a real theory of physics in the midst of a fictional adventure yarn.

Thematically, it is a bracing and inspiring coming-of-age story telling young readers and reminding older readers what it means to be a man, a man of integrity, in a world where no one is there to dig you out of a mess.

It works as social commentary. As in a Heinlein juvenile, there are memorable quips and trenchant observations about political realities peppered throughout the dialog, which have as much application in our world as theirs.
Review by John C. Wright

Talk to a Real, Live Girl: And Other Stories
by Paul Clayton

2021 !WINNER! in Science Fiction — Los Angeles Book Festival! Readers’ Favorite 5 Star review: Talk to a Real, Live Girl And Other Stories by Paul Clayton is a short collection of light sci-fi tales. The flagship story is Talk to a Real, Live Girl. Disillusioned with the extreme societal and political changes on Earth and a ruined relationship, Alex leaves home to work at a mine on Kratos, a distant planet. Kratos also offers some free time diversions, one being particularly appealing to men far from home; robot females who are perfect and always willing. Alex has no real interest in them, despite his loneliness. Then, one day he meets Traci, a “real, live” girl. Do Alex and Traci have any real hope of a future together? In the next story, The Lawn, Bob Hanlon struggles mightily to come to terms with his forced retirement and the strange presence that seems to have taken up residence in his overgrown yard. In the third story, Happy Acres, a couple finds their new life on Mars less perfect than what they had been promised. Finally, the first two chapters of a novel-in-progress about the fabled Lost Colony of Roanoke complete this collection of stories. In Talk to a Real, Live Girl And Other Stories by Paul Clayton, readers find entertaining stories that almost read like episodes of beloved classic sci-fi TV series. The main story, a poignant tale of loss, new possibilities, and adventure, makes some subtle, near humorous observations about contemporary American society and what the future could hold. The other two stories, while lighter fare and shorter, are no less interesting. These stories are a quick, enjoyable read, and Paul Clayton has a talent for immersing readers almost immediately in their narrative, including the bonus chapters at the end. Any message the author is trying to convey does not get in the way of the basic flow of the stories, which is a desirable feature. He also draws attention to other stories he has written, and readers will find themselves willing to invest time in reading these. Alex has fled a broken marriage and a society on Earth grown hostile toward men. Landing on the mining planet, Kratos, known to its male work force as “Boyz Wurld,” he hopes to lose himself in hard work, drinking, and the illusion of female companionship provided by robots. Will that be enough? In time, Alex finds himself longing to Talk to a Real, Live Girl. Predictably, there aren’t many on Kratos. Then he finds Traci, as well as the dream of a new beginning back on Earth—a normal life—if only the forces controlling Kratos will permit it.A genuine love story, Talk to a Real, Live Girl explores consequences of a #MeToo movement run amok, and of adaptations brave individuals may be forced to make.

Crossing Over
by Paul Clayton

REVIEW by Donna Gielow McFarland for Readers’ Favorite. Crossing Over by Paul Clayton tells the story of an American family trying to survive the beginnings of the second civil war. Set some time in the not-too-distant future, the existence of two simultaneous presidents has split the country along ideological lines. The protests are becoming violent, sections of the country have formed their own militias, along with the militias of the two warring parties. In the midst of shortages of food and other necessities, gangs and thugs are terrorizing formerly safe neighborhoods. Realizing that it is no longer safe to remain in their home, Mike McNerney decides to pack the camper and flee to Canada with his wife, Marie, and disabled teenage daughter, Elly. Unfortunately, everyone else has the same idea.Once I started reading, I could not put down this well-written and compelling short novel. Clayton’s premise is chillingly realistic. The book does not focus on the politics, but instead focuses on regular Americans who not long before led totally normal lives, and who are quickly turned into refugees as they try to escape the crime and violence taking over the country. The scene at the Canadian border was highly believable, as was the deterioration of Mike and Marie’s relationship as it crumbled under the stress of their ordeal. Complicating matters is the need to protect their beautiful daughter Elly, who is naïve enough to wander off with any stranger. Crossing Over should stand as a warning to anyone inclined to think that violence is the answer to political disagreement, as it paints a picture of how America could slide into chaos far too easily. There is some mature subject matter and language. Recommended for readers who are brave enough to read it.


The Blue World: Anunnaki Advent; a Short Story
by Paul Clayton

The best laid plans of gods and men go awry on… the Blue World.

Loosely based on Zecharia Sitchin’s Earth Chronicles, The Blue World follows the efforts of the Sumerian gods, the Anunnaki, as they land on earth to mine the gold there in order to repair the damaged atmosphere of their home planet, Nibiru.

The Anunnaki miners find gold mining laborious and dangerous, so they genetically engineer a hybrid race to do it for them.

Mixing Anunnaki DNA with simian, they create The Human, “those who work.”

Paul Clayton is the author of a three-book historical series on the Spanish Conquest of the Floridas– Calling Crow, Flight of the Crow, and Calling Crow Nation (Putnam/Berkley), and a novel, Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam (St. Martin’s Press), based on his own experiences in that war.

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam was a finalist at the 2001 Frankfurt eBook Awards, along with works by Joyce Carol Oates (Faithless), David McCullough (John Adams), and Alan Furst (The Kingdom of Shadows).

Clayton’s historical novel — White Seed: The Untold Story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke — explores the mystery of the vanished English colonists on Roanoke Island. His realistic contemporary novel, In the Shape of a Man, explores the dark side of the go-go lifestyle of turn-of-the-century Silicon Valley workers.

Clayton’s collection of traditional sci-fi and fantasy stories, Strange Worlds, pays homage to the sci-fi greats. Clayton’s novel, Van Ripplewink: You Can’t Go Home Again, is a modern twist on the classic Rip Van Winkle story, that wades into America’s current socio-racial dysfunction. Clayton’s novella, Crossing Over, tells the story of the 2nd American civil war. His latest sci-fi collection, Talk to a Real, Live Girl, tells of a future world where the MeToo movement and the sophistication of robotic companions… collide with unforeseen and astounding consequences.


Strange Worlds
by Paul Clayton


In the future, the love of a young man’s life is dying. He would do almost anything to keep her alive…except that! In Dog Man, it turns out that Oscar the tomcat was just misunderstood — with deadly consequences… A love sick young man attempts to tap the power of an ancient religion to secure the affections of a girl on their class trip to Christland… The dead come briefly back to life every year when the astral dimensions align in Day, or Two, of The Dead. A cynical young ‘player’, adrift in the modern, amoral age meets God on a mountain top and his life is changed forever — but not in the way he’d ever imagined. Traditional sci-fi/fantasy and satire from the author of Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam. Clayton channels the spirits of Huxley, Orwell and Philip K. Dick in these and ten other intelligent, provocative and highly entertaining stories. WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING “Thank you for writing this. This is the sort of book I was hoping would begin to spring from the Indie world. No way would NYC Corporate Publishing ever allow something with this world view through.” “… I expected Strange Worlds to be about dystopias, supernatural monsters, zombies, and futuristic technologies, but now after reading this collection, I realize that the stories are about us.” “Clayton leads the modern reader through dark and dangerous territory, but the gems they will find there are worth the risk. Very few Indies would have had the courage to put their names to something like this.” “… while you are being taken away to a place and time which is… strange and… disturbing… the humanity of (most of) his characters will make you feel right at home; of course, you’ll want to leave a light on.”



Escape From the Future and Other Stories
by Paul Clayton


What if you had access to a time machine and could go back to visit a deceased love… one more time. Would you?

In 1962, Bobby Newman’s Grandpa, a basement inventor, loses his wife to cancer, then begins to lose his mind to grief. While tuning up his not-yet-perfected time machine for one last visit with his wife, he ends up going the wrong way… into the dystopian future of 2025. Inexplicably, he sends the machine back.

Fourteen-year-old Bobby uses it to lead Mom and Dad on a mission to find Grandpa and bring him back.

But Grandpa has other ideas…

This volume brings together five of Paul Clayton’s most ambitious stories to date, stories that juxtapose a familiar America of the very recent past with ominous new versions of the country now coming into focus.

Clayton’s concern is with ordinary people—their innate wisdom and persistent foolishness, their capacity to do good or harm, and their resiliency—with what happens when time travelers from the 1960s arrive in a city dominated by criminal gangs and corrupt politicians, or when a woman opts for a new procedure to avoid losing her cancer-ridden husband, or when a soldier in Vietnam is granted a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to give his elevator speech, or when a man, illegally alive, attempts to stay that way…

Clayton shows how people make choices that, collectively, point civilization in new directions, be it toward forcible reclamation of vast tracts of land as primeval wilderness or elimination of those deemed to be nonproductive ‘useless eaters.’

This is a first-rate collection of stories by a serious writer.—Stephen Gallup, author of What About the Boy?


Calling Crow (The Southeast Series Book 1)
by Paul Clayton

1555. Calling Crow is haunted by his recurring dream of the Destroyer who will one day lay waste to his village.

Then Spanish colonial slavers from the island of Hispaniola arrive on the shores of the Southeast, lands that have been home to the Muskogee people for generations.

Calling Crow and another brave are taken and bound into slavery.

Life in the gold pits and slave camps is humiliating and brutal, but Calling Crow refuses to let them break his spirit.

Aided by a kindly priest, Calling Crow vows to learn the language and ways of an overwhelmingly powerful enemy in order to eventually save his own people. But first he must regain his own freedom.

In the Shape of a Man
by Paul Clayton

Rosemary’s Baby meets Revolutionary Road…

On the border between the necropolis of Colma, home to over two million dead souls and 1,794 somewhat live ones — and the gritty industrial working-class town of South City —

At 1015 Crestview, little seven-year-old Reynaldo cowers under the escalating abuse hurled by an adoptive mother who now sees him as a burden.

Allen, a workaholic Silicon Valley techie, seeks relief from domestic conflict by slipping away to sample the sweet brews at McCoy’s, a mysterious pub and Hell’s Angels hangout.

Up the street, young adults Rad and Tawny drift between the worlds of skateboarding and community activism, free love and commitment. Sampling Buddhism and squabbling with the relatives, they avoid thinking about the 15-foot Burmese python in their garage.

Does evil exist? Is it still with us? How would it manifest in modern life? This genre-bending novel of alienation and betrayal suggests that evil, as well as redemption, can come In the Shape of a Man.

“Society’s ambivalence about the value of children, and personal responsibility, creates drama in two neighboring households. The haunting story of little adopted Reynaldo will send you running to hug your kids.” — Stephen Gallup, author of What About the Boy

REVIEW: From the opening scene on, IN THE SHAPE OF A MAN wraps a fog of dread around readers, pulling them into the misty depths of moral turpitude. Adopted as an infant, then later shunted aside after the birth of his sister, seven-year-old Reynaldo is at the epicenter of abuse from his mother Tina and benign neglect from father Allen. Through skilled juxtaposition of description, dialogue and narrative, author Paul Clayton does such an effective job of depicting family dysfunction, and the underlying evil forces, that the reader’s heart just breaks for Reynaldo. One knows this child is doomed, but the who, what, where and how keep the pages turning.

Less compelling but also skillfully portrayed are a freewheeling young couple down the street, Tawny and Rad, the default caretakers of Ketsel, a 15-foot Burmese python who resides in their garage, a good faith deposit from a former roommate who never claims him. Tawny struggles with an unwanted pregnancy and Rad’s infidelity while Ketsel has his own agenda. — Judge, 2nd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook Awards.

The Empire’s Corps
by Christopher G. Nuttall

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.

Ark Royal 
by Christopher Nuttall

If you wish for peace, prepare for war.

-Royal Navy Motto

Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy.

But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons. Ark Royal and her mismatched crew must go on the offensive, buying time with their lives And yet, with a drunkard for a Captain, an over-ambitious first officer and a crew composed of reservists and the dregs of the service, do they have even the faintest hope of surviving …

… And returning to an Earth which may no longer be there?

Schooled in Magic
by Christopher G. Nuttall

Emily is a teenage girl pulled from our world into a world of magic and mystery by a necromancer who intends to sacrifice her to the dark gods. Rescued in the nick of time by an enigmatic sorcerer, she discovers that she possesses magical powers and must go to Whitehall School to learn how to master them. There, she learns the locals believe that she is a “Child of Destiny,” someone whose choices might save or damn their world … a title that earns her both friends and enemies. A stranger in a very strange land, she may never fit into her new world …

…and the necromancer is still hunting her. If Emily can’t stop him, he might bring about the end of days.

Book I in the Schooled in Magic series.

Lessons in Etiquette (Schooled in Magic Book 2) 
by Christopher G. Nuttall

After completing her first year of learning magic at Whitehall School, Emily accepts an invitation from Princess Alassa to accompany her on her progress back to her home country of Zangaria, where the princess may meet her future husband. Alassa, who was a spoiled brat before she met Emily, wants to show off her friend – and impress potential suitors.

For Emily, it is a chance to relax and explore a world very different to Earth, meet new people and come to terms with her reputation in the Nameless World. After her defeat of Shadye, everyone wants to know her, to talk with her, to kill her … or to marry her. For Emily, hardly a social butterfly, the experience is disconcerting. She was never seriously courted before, not on Earth.

And yet, as she sees more of the countries surrounding Whitehall, she feels more and more out of place. The locals come from a very different culture, one that is often strange and horrifying to her eyes. Even her friends seem different people in their homes.

But dark forces are at work, plotting to capture the princess, take power in Zangaria … and undo all of Emily’s work. As all hell breaks loose, Emily may be all that stands between Zangaria and a return to the dark ages of brute force that threatened to lay the kingdom low, once before. And if she fails, her friends will be just the first victims of a war that will rip the Allied Lands apart.

Study in Slaughter (Schooled in Magic Book 3)
by Christopher G. Nuttall

Brimming with new ideas for magical research, Emily returns to Whitehall School for her Second Year, only to discover that things are going to be different. Her friends have become sports-mad fanatics, her new roommates are strangers to her, her new classes are far harder and one of the teachers seems to actively dislike her. As she returns to the comforting routine of the only place she considers home, she finds that Second Year will be far harder than the first.

But as the students settle in to continue their studies, it rapidly becomes clear that all is far from well at Whitehall. There’s a murderer running loose in the school. A murderer who may be a newborn necromancer. And then there’s the spy watching Emily from the shadows, waiting for her to make one tiny, but fatal mistake …

As the darkness falls on Whitehall, Emily may be their salvation…or the person who damns them all.

Centrism Games
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.

Through it all, Clarence realizes the value of loyalty and the cost of redemption. But most importantly, he discovers a degree of inner strength he never knew he possessed. Will Guthrie find his daughter? Will Clarence survive unscathed? Take a wild ride through the Old West and find out!

Faith and Empire: Book One of The Holy Terran Empire
by Carlos Carrasco

One Faith. One Galactic Empire. And A Thousand Worlds Yet To Convert!

In the 51st century, man has spread throughout a great swath of the galaxy without having found any sign of alien life or another habitable world. Instead, mankind has splintered into a score of bio-engineered sub-species spread out across more than a thousand terraformed worlds. The Holy Terran Empire rules over three hundred of these man-made planets. Earth, the One, True World is the Empire’s Capital. The One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Rome governs the Empire, hand-in-hand, with the Imperial Family.

Not everyone is pleased with this arrangement.

Zephyrinus Zapatas, a dutiful citizen of the Empire and loyal son of the Church is more than happy with the Co-Dominion of Emperor and Pope. At sixteen, Zeph leaves home, seeking a life of service to the two crowns. He finds his opportunity in an invitation to join the Emperor’s Own, the elite Corps of Imperial Marines.

The Corps’ training is arduous; its moral code, exacting, but; Zeph welcomes the trials and the strictures. The Corps will demand sacrifices. In return, the Imperial Marines offer its recruits little more than a career fraught with peril to life and limb. Zeph accepts the life, however short it might be, because it comes with the chance of achieving his greatest ambition: reaching the rank of Knight Defender of the Faith and Empire.

His training, ambition and his faith will all be tested in the fires of battle against a cruel alliance of space pirates terrorizing scores of worlds.

The Holy Terran Empire is a new space opera series for anyone who can’t get enough sword & blaster action.

DeathworldDeathworld #1
by Harry Harrison *FREE*

Harry Harrison’s Deathworld is a 1960 sci-fi classic, nominated for a Hugo. The story is a straight up action packed thriller of a planet that appears intent on killing its human inhabitants. An adventurer with a flair for gambling due to psionic powers assists its leader with acquiring more weapons for their never ending battle with both fauna and flora that continuously mutates to ever deadlier forms that are constantly attacking the small colony. The adventurer checks out the place and finds a dwindling community that is so focused on exterminating nature that they can’t even remember how they arrived on the planet generations ago. Eventually, he goes native and finds others living under better conditions and slowly surmises the basis for the state of affairs which the groups have little interest in pursuing.

While space travel is routine, biological mutation and evolution is front and center. Psionic abilities also play a prominent role. Given the global state of affairs at the time of its publication, the planet is clearly a metaphor for the single-minded stubbornness of large groups (be they colonists or whole governments) to pursue self-destructive paths with expectations of total annihilation of an equally matched enemy, never questioning the overall strategy and constantly upping tactical approaches. Not surprisingly, the story transcends its time and resonates even today.

Oh Venus. Doesn’t that just roll off the lips like a lovers kiss?

What image does it draw to your mind? A great planetary body of deadly gases neighboring Earth, existing as its own world, mysterious and alluring? Or an image of a more fantastical nature such as the jungles described by Edgar Rice Burroughs? Or do you think perhaps, of a goddess who holds power and beauty beyond measure, whose name, throughout the ages, has been synonymous with love? Perhaps you imagine something in-between, with adventure and romance.

Love, of any kind, has the power to bring the magic of Gods into the events of men. Within these covers you will find tales of wonder, some of space, some of the heart, some that follow in the footsteps of the goddess herself.

Jake Freivald, ed.

Artists in every era and medium have depicted Neptune as a tempestuous god with ever-changing moods, so it’s fitting that his anthology follows suit. In these pages, you’ll find stories by turns heroic, comic, pensive, absurd, uplifting, and ambiguous.

They also reflect different conceptions of what it means to be “related to Neptune,” as this volume was intended to be.

Some anchor themselves in mythology–the power of the sea, naturally, but also of earthquakes, along with Neptune’s love of horses and his sexual proclivities–while others focus on the planet, and still others are weird amalgams of Neptunian themes. Sometimes it’s just an beguiling blend of water and wonder.

These pages are graced with stories from talented authors with a broad range of sensibilities and perspectives. These are the the 15 stories of the God of the oceans, stories of the high seas and knowledge.

Dawn Witzke & Richard Paolinelli, eds.

Pluto, the Roman god of death and wealth, ruled the underworld far away from all of the other gods. So it was only fitting when, in 1930 and working on a theorized ninth planet proposed by Percival Lowell, Clyde Tombaugh used the telescope at Lowell Observatory to locate the ninth planet in our solar system, far, far away from its brothers and sister.

Then came that day in July of 2015. Like the Romans when they found themselves within Pluto’s realm and discovered it was nothing like the desolate fires of damnation assigned to his Greek counterpart, Hades, those of us in modern time discovered that Pluto was nothing like we had imagined since 1930.

That iconic photo of Pluto, with the heart-shaped plain later named Tombaugh Regio, told us that there was so much more to the planet. First, it was not blue and not just solid ice as so many had expected it to be. Just like Pluto’s mythological domain, the planet displayed a variety of features and composition.

In this volume, what you will find in the pages that follow are twenty-one amazing stories of death and wealth set around a wandering cousin far out in the cold edges of our solar system. You will find Vikings, knights, warriors defending home and hearth, of triumph and tragedy, and, yes, even the god himself. You will read tales of great courage and great loss. Of sacrifice for a greater good and of justice delivered to the overly greedy. You will even find the aforementioned Walt Disney himself.

Gods & Proxies
by M.R. Kayser


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.

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.

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.

The War of the Worlds
by H.G. Wells

“This isn’t a war,” said the artilleryman. “It never was a war, any more than there’s war between man and ants.” ― H.G. Wells, The War of the Worlds

The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by English author H. G. Wells. It first appeared in serialized form in 1897, published simultaneously in Pearson’s Magazine in the UK and Cosmopolitan magazine in the US. The first appearance in book form was published by William Heinemann of London in 1898.

It is the first-person narrative of an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and that of his younger brother in London as Earth is invaded by Martians. Written between 1895 and 1897, it is one of the earliest stories that detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The War of the Worlds has two parts, Book One: The Coming of the Martians and Book Two: The Earth under the Martians.

The narrator, a philosophically inclined author, struggles to return to his wife while seeing the Martians lay waste to the southern country outside London. Book One also imparts the experience of his brother, also unnamed, who describes events as they deteriorate in the capital, forcing him to escape the Martian onslaught by boarding a paddle steamer near Tilling ham, on the Essex coast.

Rebel Heart (Engines of Liberty Book 1)
by Graham Bradley Rebel Heart (Engines of Liberty Book 1)

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.

Which Art In Hope
(Spooner Federation Saga Book 1)

by Francis Porretto

When the remnant of the anarchist Spooner Federation fled Earth before the genocidal wrath of the States, the fugitives had only the slimmest chance of finding a habitable world orbiting a benign star. Yet 544 years after embarking on their planetoid-ship, they found one that seemed too good to be true. They named it Hope.

Like all things that are too good to be true, Hope isn’t what it seemed.

For 1200 years, a secret Cabal has elevated powerful psi talents to the the management of Hope’s crust, at the eventual cost of their lives. The alternative was a choice between mass death by heavy-metal poisoning and mass death by starvation. But the pool of psi talents has dwindled till only two remain: Armand Morelon, heir apparent to the richest and most prestigious clan on Hope, and Victoria Peterson, a young woman of great beauty and intelligence immured in poverty and abuse. But one is utterly unwilling and the other is murderously insane. And the survival of Mankind hangs in the balance.

Freedom’s Scion
(Spooner Federation Saga Book 2)
by Francis Porretto

Sequel to Which Art In Hope.

As they pass from mortal life, Armand and Teresza Morelon, foremost of all the residents of the wholly ungoverned world of Hope, lay a charge upon their granddaughter Althea: to break the lightspeed barrier, travel to Earth, and determine why no radio emissions from the cradle of Mankind have reached Hope since the Spoonerite Hegira. It shapes the young polymath’s life from that moment onward.

Althea spends her young adulthood playing Hope’s equities market, amassing a fortune for her mission. At 30 she falls in love with Martin Forrestal, a genius of another kind. The two are soon married.

Jacksonville is in flux. Armand Morelon had facilitated a mass relocation from the Hopeless peninsula, where Hope’s undesirables had sheltered, to the Jacksonville region. Douglas Kramnik, patriarch of one of the relocated clans, seeks payback for the long-ago diminution of his clan to outcast status. First, he seeks to marry Althea to his son and clan scion Barton. When Morelon matriarch Charisse declines the offer, his resentments swell. They culminate in an attempt to thwart Barton’s betrothal to Althea’s cousin Nora, which elicits an intervention by Althea herself.

Charisse tries but fails to dissuade Althea from going to the stars. Her failure couples to her desire for power, and she begins to scheme. Her attempts to become a local baroness are revealed through a discovery by Patrice Kramnik Morelon of irregularities in the clan’s finances. It costs Charisse her position, but doesn’t end her quest for power.

After Althea and Martin have tested Freedom’s Horizon, a ground-to-orbit spaceplane, Martin presses her with his desire for children. It proves catastrophic: the child is stillborn. The birth leaves Althea in lasting agony. She and Martin are estranged for two years. They reunite after an intervention by Barton and Nora, but the tensions between them have not been dispersed.

Hope’s progress has emphasized biotechnology. Hallanson-Albermayer Corporation develops a medipod capable of healing its owner of virtually any ill. Althea and Martin become the first customers. Althea’s medipod provides her with cover for a telekinetic repair of her damaged nervous system. She’s guided by her “dead” grandfather Armand, who has taught her the use of her psi powers, as great as his own.

Althea and Martin establish an orbital lab on the Relic, the planetoid-ship that ferried the original Spoonerites to Hope. Groundside, Charisse abandons Clan Morelon and her husband Chuck without warning, and isn’t seen again for years. Althea soon discovers a way around the lightspeed limit, and a power source suitable for propelling a starship.

When Althea’s starship Liberty’s Torch is ready for its maiden voyage, she finds an unexpected ally in her desire to leave Martin safely behind: Barton Kramnik Morelon, who rose upon Charisse’s resignation to the Morelon patriarchy. Between them, they persuade Althea’s husband to remain on Hope for the three years of her journey to Eridanus cluster, signals from which hint at intelligent life.

At Eridanus, Althea is greeted by representatives of the Loioc, a humanoid race whose males have been deliberately rendered nonsentient, supposedly to put an end to violence among them. It’s their intention that Althea do the same to the men of Hope. Althea escapes their plot and destroys the space station the Loioc had used to suppress interstellar travel, but is infected with the nanites the Loioc women use to suppress the development of intelligence in men.

Althea returns to the Relic, hoping that her medipod has removed the nanites from her body, and discovers that in her absence, Hope has been visited by the supreme evil the Spoonerites fled Earth to escape: warfare.

To be continued in Freedom’s Fury, the concluding volume of the Spooner Federation trilogy.

Freedom’s Fury
(Spooner Federation Saga Book 3)
by Francis Porretto

Althea Morelon has returned from Eridanus cluster. The Loioc have infected her with a self-replicating nanite that destroys the sentience potential of male zygotes, filling her with a lust for vengeance.

But she has more to cope with than just her nanite infection.

Interclan warfare has broken out on Hope.

Though Althea must remain on the Relic until she’s certain she‘s free of the Loioc nanite, only she can save her kin from subjugation. And there’s more and worse to come.

The State is rising again.

Freedom’s Fury, the third volume of the Spooner Federation saga, completes the tale of struggle and survival begun in Which Art In Hope and continued in Freedom’s Scion.

Chosen One (Realm of Essences Book 1)
by Francis Porretto

From his earliest days, Louis Redmond proves to be a prodigy: brilliant, powerful, and great-souled, a trailblazer of the spirit and a natural leader of men.

Armies would follow him into the mouth of Hell.

Yet tragedy dogs his steps, depriving him of family and friends. Hammerblow follows hammerblow, giving him little time to recover.

But Louis is watched over by one who knows all the ways of Man: Malcolm Loughlin, immortal grandmaster of all things martial, who’s trained the world’s great warriors for two millennia.

His wisdom, enough to elevate Louis to the throne of the world, is available to Louis, for a price…

A price even a Titan would shudder to meet.

On Broken Wings (Realm of Essences Book 2)
by Francis W. Porretto

Christine has no memory of her past.

She’s been made a sexual slave by the Butchers, a gang of vicious bikers.

After ten years’ agony, she’s freed herself by committing murder and earning a faceful of hideous scars.

But Tiny, the Butcher king, is obsessed with her.

Her sole chance of escaping him lies in trusting a mysterious young man she’s just met.

She takes a chance, the biggest of her life, on her serendipitous rescuer, and he proves more than equal to the task. But Louis Redmond has a few secrets of his own…and they prove to be just as important to Christine’s future as his intrusion into the horror show her life has been…

Shadow Of A Sword (Realm of Essences Book 3)
by Francis Porretto

Christine D’Alessandro has been away from Onteora County for three years when the death of Helen Davenport draws her back. She is swiftly, albeit unwillingly, enmeshed in a war between two private security companies: Integral Security, owned and operated by Kevin Conway, and Lawrence Security Patrols, owned and operated by Ernest Lawrence, brother to Onteora Chief of Police Raymond Lawrence.

Shortly thereafter, Stephen Sumner, the lieutenant governor of New York, decides to campaign for the presidency of the United States on the Constitutional Party ticket. He approaches Conway about security, and acquires Christine’s services for the duration of his campaign. It proves a fortunate choice: powerful forces are determined to prevent the charismatic and principled Sumner from getting his message to the American people.

Sumner proves to be exactly what the nation, crushed by debt, taxes, and near-totalitarian government, has been looking for. That doesn’t endear him to the powers that be or their supporters. One such supporter, political strategist Adam Zlugy, currently in service to President Walter Coleman, sees an opportunity for himself that his affiliation with Coleman cannot equal.

Malcolm Loughlin, Christine’s old mentor, becomes alert to the multifarious threats to Sumner and Christine. They prove to be of a nature that reaches beyond mere politics…indeed, all the way to the forces that governed the creation of the world.

Polymath (Realm of Essences Book 4)
by Francis Porretto

Even in his high school years, it was clear to all who knew him that Todd Iverson is special. There are no sciences, no technologies, and no arts he cannot master. There is no field of human endeavor he will leave untouched. He has the power to transform human civilization utterly, and he means to do so.

Todd does have a few little problems. For one, his mother crippled him emotionally by artificially orphaning him, abandoning him to become a nun just after his father’s death. For another, he can’t abide the idea that anyone might be better than he is—at anything. For a third, he might just be a sociopath: the most dangerous sociopath ever to be born among men.

The powers of darkness are aware of him, and they don’t plan to let him work unmolested.

But Todd will not go his way unmentored or unprotected. The most powerful creatures on Earth have resolved to complete his upbringing and bring his strength to fullness:
Malcolm Loughlin.
Christine D’Alessandro.
And Louis Redmond.

Todd will find love and deliberately forsake it.
He will know the most terrible kinds and occasions of loss.
He will enter the world of business, first as an employee, later as an entrepreneur.
And his powers will reach their zenith just as a most improbable figure takes the White House.

For Todd Evelyn Iverson has his eyes on the skies. He has resolved that Man shall leave his species’ womb at long last. As Stephen Graham Sumner and the Constitutional movement rise to prominence, he is preparing to set his foot upon the first rung of a ladder to the stars. It’s a ladder he is uniquely qualified to design and build.

Polymath chronicles the bursting of an Onteora County giant from his chrysalis to spread his wings over the world. It’s the fourth novel of the Realm of Essences series, and begins the story of an American Renaissance.


Statesman (Realm of Essences Book 5)
by Francis Porretto

Stephen Graham Sumner is a lawyer from Onteora County, New York and a descendant of the late William Graham Sumner, one of America’s forgotten great thinkers. We meet Sumner in his mid-thirties: he’s capable and passionate about justice, but his life ambitions are unformed. He becomes general counsel to Onteora Aviation, a defense-industry corporation, and meets those who will mold his ambitions, with particular emphasis on a single figure: Louis Redmond.

In consequence of his reluctant agreement to become the running-mate of the incumbent governor of New York, Sumner develops a vast distaste for what American politics and government have become. Surprised and made optimistic by his unexpected popularity, not merely in New York but throughout the Northeast, he campaigns for and wins the presidency on the Constitutional Party ticket: the first candidate to rise to the White House from a third party since Abraham Lincoln.

Sumner’s presidency is not a tranquil one. Foreign military adventures, provoked by Islamic terrorism, lead to horrifying consequences. These, plus his domestic efforts to return American government to its Constitutional origins and his support for maverick inventor and space enthusiast Todd Iverson’s orbital habitat project, cause the rise of an implacable enemy: Ian McIlvaine, U.S. Senator from California. By dint of brilliant though darkly-motivated tactics, McIlvaine succeeds Sumner in the Oval Office, and contrives a downfall for Sumner that no previous president has had to face.

The Fugitive Heir: Matt & Michelle Book 1
by Henry Vogel

“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.

The First Knight (Flavius Stilicho Book 1)
by Dennis Garcia

It’s hard to be a man of honor when the Emperor wants you dead.

Flavius Stilicho’s quiet provincial life ended the day he was called up to the Emperor’s Own Proctectores, who served both as bodyguards at official functions and as a pool of junior officers for the most prestigious military positions in the Empire. Here, he grew close to the children of Rome’s greatest people, including the barbarian prince Alaric, and fell in love with Serena, the lovely adopted daughter of the Emperor Theodosius.

When Stilicho and his companions foil an attempt on the Emperor’s life, he boldly asks for Serena’s hand in marriage as a reward. The Emperor, to escape this quandary, poses an impossible task for Stilicho as a prerequisite: he would be the Emperor’s plenipotentary, a special ambassador holding the powers of the Emperor himself in bargaining with other nations, and he would bring home a peace treaty with alien and treacherous Persia, Rome’s greatest enemy and rival. While he would be well-provisioned and encouraged to bring a small detachment of men for protection and support, Stilicho’s courage, honor, and skill with diplomacy would determine his success or failure.

But first Stilicho had to survive months of travel through the most dangerous lands on the edges of the Roman Empire, where the Pax Romana had long since broken down. Worse, his own close-knit circle of friends begins to fall apart as it becomes clear that the goals of some diverge from Rome’s well-being.

Innocent Spouse
by Leonard Getz

Being an IRS agent isn’t all fun and games. Mostly it’s downright dull, and that suits agent Ivan Samuels just fine. Sure, there was that time he’d found illegal gambling and organized crime when he audited a restaurant, but that was an anomaly. He was happy quietly pursuing tax cheats in court, dating his tax lawyer girlfriend Alice, and raising his college-student daughter Liz.

But no. Somehow he acquired an assistant and trainee, the chirpy and cheerful Keisha, and a new case: investigating the Philadelphia Times, ostensibly for taxes but secretly looking for leads that the FBI could pursue. And then a dead body turns up – Liz’s dear friend and a star reporter for the Times.

Pursuing leads from the archives and stacks of the Times seemed less important than supporting Liz or dealing with his stubborn, independent father Harold’s heart condition from thousands of miles away – until it becomes clear that the body, the Times, and Islamic terrorism are all interconnected. Now Ivan must figure out the links before tragedy strikes.

by Steve Stinson

What happens when you take both roads?

Young Matt Andrews knew right from wrong. He just had a habit of sliding into wrong – until one wrong step forced him to make a man’s choice.

The wrong one, of course.

One man heals him, sets him straight, and launches him into a well-lived life. One woman loves him, giving him the perfect backdrop of a warm home, happy children, and a nurturing retreat to complement his successful career as a cartoonist.

Then, FLIP.

A spinning coin carelessly tossed by a mysterious traveler forces Matt to revisit the life of fame and fortune he would have lived – the family he would have had – and the daughter he betrayed. He learns to love them, then


Back and forth between present and present, Matt endures a bewildering and agonizing journey – not toward redemption, but to learn what redemption truly is, AND TO DISCOVER THE MEANING OF THOU.

Chasing Freedom
by Marina Fontaine

The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. — Thomas Jefferson

It started with love.

The love of a young man for his Julie; the love of a mother for her doomed daughter; the love and sacrifice of an orphaned brother for his kid sister. No force in the world, even that of a totalitarian nanny-state, can erase the power of love.

It became a movement.

With the youthful and charismatic energy of lovers Randy and Julie at the core, dissident freedom-loving groups come together. From outright rebels to smugglers, from gay-rights groups to Christian congregations, they all recognized a common purpose: the reignition of freedom.

It ended in blood — and hope.

Julie’s rebels identify key weaknesses in the government structure that can be exploited, given time, skill, and luck. But the government has lost patience with the dissidents, brutally cracking down on freedom-fighters and ordinary citizens alike in its efforts to exert full control. With the government growing ever closer to uncovering the secrets of the alliance, will Julie and Randy be able to hold off annihilation long enough to emerge victorious?

The Product
by Marina Fontaine

The Product. It’s addictive, seductive, mind-altering, life-changing. Dangerous. Deadly, even. Your friendly local government wants to protect you from all dangerous things, so those dealing the Product are persecuted to the fullest extent of the law – public beatings, brutal mishandling, and ultimately permanent psychological reprogramming or death.

If you’re a dealer and they see you, you run. Capture is not an option.

Kevin got caught. His girlfriend Lily knows it. Now her only goal is to help him escape, and to do that, she must enter the underworld formed around the Product. They might say no. They might even kill her. And even if the rescue succeeds, Lily needs to choose: stay in her safe, Government-protected life or join Kevin as a hunted fugitive or in the dangerous freedom of the Outers.

But first, they have to make it through the day.

What Reviewers Say:

“There is a hardness to the setting and the ideas here that is reminiscent of Ayn Rand.” – Jeffro Johnson

“. . . a well-paced, descriptive offering. . . I recommend it to anyone who is looking for fiction from the Superversive movement.” – Dave Truesdale

About the Author:

I retired from being a physics professor in order to write. I’ve been doing that my whole life. 170 scientific papers, more single-author than not. and more than two dozen books. Now I can write full time. My current novels in progress include Academician (Adara volume 2), Of Breaking Waves (Eclipse volume 4), Tales of the Anglic Union Astrographic Service, and Phenomenology of Polymeric Fluid Simulations.

Practical Exercise
by George Phillies

Adara Triskittenion has been admitted to the school of her dreams, Dorrance Academy, the premier magical research university of the Commonality of the Timeless. Her objective: Become a faculty member and stay forever. Her family, House Triskittenion, the Hall of the Three Kittens, still has claims on her time. For most of the year she has books to read, courses to ace, but first that trivial test of combat magic skill, the Practical Exercise.

Readers are perhaps familiar with fictional magical academies allegedly modeled after English Public (meaning private, boarding) Schools. Dorrance Academy is not one of these places. Dorrance resembles an American research university, except that the ‘science’ majors are fields of sorcery.

A minor authorial aside: As it happens, your author is also a research scientist, a retired physics professor. Once upon a time, many decades ago. I was a student at America’s Dorrance Academy, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I have woven into the tale a fair piece of advice on how to succeed at such a school. If you are headed off to such a place, please keep my advice in mind. You may correctly assume that some of the modest vignettes are lightly disguised real occurrences, including ‘construction line’ and ‘personal self-aggrandizement’.

Eclipse: The Girl Who Saved the World (Eclipse — the Girl Who Saved the World Book 1)
by George Phillies (Author), Brad Fraunfelter (Illustrator)

Eclipse —
World’s Greatest Tween Superhero
World’s Most Terrifying Tween Supervillain
Opinions differ.
She’s caring, daring, deadly
…and here to save the world
whether it likes it or not.

Meet Eclipse.

She’s twelve. She’s hardworking, bright, self-reliant, good with tools, vigorously physically fit, tough as nails, still young enough to disguise herself as a boy. She’s also a persona: She flies, reads minds, and is not afraid of necessary violence.

She had a bit of a problem with her mom. Her mom threw her out of the house. Then Mom blew up the house and disappeared.

Now she’s procured the Holy Namestone, the Key to Paradise. And everyone in the world will be happy to kill her to get their hands on it.

Meet Trisha.

She’s not quite a year older than Eclipse. She’s friendly, considerate, really good in school, athletic, does more than her share around the house. She’s also a persona. She has superspeed…an hour of housework in a minute. She flies, including from here to the next galaxy in an hour.

She also has a bit of a problem with her parents. They always treat her with complete contempt, totally grounded her, and won’t say why.

Her brother and sister are personas, too. Year-younger sister Janie is a budding world chess and go champion. She also reads minds, sees distant events, and can kill with a glance. Her twin brother Brian is incredibly good with tools, builds fantastic models from scratch, has a nearly unbreakable force field, and summons plasma beams that cut battleships in half.

Eclipse is Volume 1 of the This Shining Sea series. Volume 2, Airy Castles All Ablaze, will be a major rewrite of my much older novel This Shining Sea. There will be a Volume 3, Stand Against the Light, and a Volume 4, Of Breaking Waves, because Eclipse still needs to save Spindrift from having died.

Shoot the Devil
by N.R. LaPoint, Steven G. Johnson, James Pyles, L. Jagi Lamplighter, Daniel Humphreys, Declan Finn, Russell Newquist, John C. Wright, Corey Comstock, and Michael Gallagher

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. Wright’s contribution. Overall its a great read and I would recommend to anyone who wants stories that are gritty and real but with a positive message showing human courage.

When small-time criminal Ross Murdock and Apache rancher Travis Fox stumble separately onto America’s secret time travel project, Operation Retrograde, they are faced with a challenge greater than either could have imagined possible. Their mere presence means that they know too much to go free. But Murdock and Fox have a thirst for adventure, and Operation Retrograde offers that in spades.

Both men will become time agents, finding reserves of inner heroism they had never expected. Their journeys will take the battle to the enemy, from ancient Britain to prehistoric America, and finally to the farthest reaches of interstellar space.

PNW Affliction 1: Recycled 
by Chance Paladin

This is the first book in the PNW Affliction series, book #1.

In my opinion the best place to start, because the story starts out small and contained before opening up into the shared story in the subsequent books.

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?

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!

The girl who can animate the dead was only the first to appear.

…or with your jaw hanging


by James Pyles

In eons past, the armies of Surtur the fire goddess and Ymir the frost giant waged an unceasing battle for dominance over the Earth. For all those ages, they maintained an uneasy but enduring balance. Then humanity rose from the mud, and with the passage of time, came to fear fire more than ice, devoting their own meager forces to the conflict. Not to be denied, Surtur beat back both mortals and giants, consigning the planet to unrelenting heat and the ice lords to seeming oblivion. Before leaving the material realm, in jest she gave humanity the gift of magic and the curse of the return of dragons.

For thousands of years thereafter, the race of people knew nothing but a world without ice. Spanning the globe in sailing ships, the humans continued to thrive and remembered not the distant past. Then Captain Ki-Moon Yong of the Oceanic Trading Company vessel the Star of Jindo is assigned the task of solving the most profound mystery ever encountered. Another ship has gone missing and her only remaining crewman suddenly commits suicide after visiting the sunken continent of Antarctica. All of the dinosaur species of the south have gone mad, invading the guarded towns and cities on their way north, as if to escape some monstrous terror.

The answers to these enigmas all lie on the continent at the bottom of the world, and Captain Moon must take the Star to a strange research facility to discover them. But once there, he is confronted with a truth so profound and so nightmarish that it will change the very nature of reality. Can the Star of Jindo escape the inevitable in time to warn an unbelieving world of that truth, or will they be consumed in frozen horror?

Sleeper Agent: Cold War
by M. Anthony Harris (Author)

Stephen Matthews is the perfect spy and now he knows it.

Recovering from the injuries inflicted in his previous adventure, Stephen and his team are desperately searching for any sign of the mysterious ‘X’ behind the attack that nearly killed Stephen and almost crippled America’s information infrastructure.

With the reemergence of a mysterious illness that caused the townspeople of the tiny village of Kalachi, Kazakhstan, to fall into a coma-like sleep, the team heads to the former Soviet Bloc nation to search for the mysterious Sleeper Agent ‘X’ who’s planning a new, more dangerous attack.

One that would wreak havoc in Kazakhstan and start a war with America that could last for decades.

Now it’s up to Stephen and his team to stop this new threat from ‘X’ and keep a potential war at bay.

A Princess of Mars:undefined
by Edgar Rice Burroughs

A Princess of Mars (1917) is a science fantasy novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first of his Barsoom series.

Full of swordplay and daring feats, the novel is considered a classic example of 20th century pulp fiction. It is also a seminal instance of the planetary romance, a subgenre of science fantasy that became highly popular in the decades following its publication. Its early chapters also contain elements of the Western.

The story is set on Mars, imagined as a dying planet with a harsh desert environment. This vision of Mars was based on the work of the astronomer Percival Lowell, whose ideas were widely popularized in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Gentleman Farmers
by Loretta Malakie

Maggie Kingsbury, single middle-aged alcoholic lawyer, joins her in-laws Molly and Kevin on a homestead in the mountains of North Carolina, where their trustafarian college frenemies Brock and Sandra have just bought their third home.

Molly commissions Brock to renovate an old Appalachian tobacco barn on their property.

But when maverick hillbilly throwback Uncle Billy shows up to live in their field in a camper van, power struggles ensue.

Meanwhile, Kevin has become dangerously obsessed with breeding heritage livestock.

When Maggie’s beloved niece Juliet asks her to take on a mysterious client, Maggie becomes implicated in a national political furor.

The scars of the long war run deep. And hope is a dangerous thing when the real enemy might just be the survivors themselves.

Rosita and the Beautiful Game
by Loretta Malakie

“Rosita met the Lycan at an after-party. Of course. Where else would you meet a werewolf. It was probably about 4 in the morning, and he was on the wane. He was a Lycan on the wane in general, which was why he was even approachable. The embers still smoldered in his eyes, but the spark was out.”

Thus begins an epic game of psychological cat and mouse. For solace, Rosita seeks emotional support from a varied cast of characters:

Josh: Rosita’s college friend. He’s working on his PhD. He thinks it’s all just pheromones and the Lycan is a credit risk.

Caligulito: Rosita’s brother. So-called because he’s a lot like Caligula, only smaller. He thinks the Lycan is a great guy.

The Maiden Aunt: Rosita’s best law-school friend. He’s 23, but he looks 37. So-called because he’s into feeble remonstration.

Margot: Another college friend. Two days into their trip to Costa Rica, Margot tells Rosita that, due to the natural and spiritual setting, she has quit her psychiatric medication cold turkey.

Rosita’s mother: All Rosita’s life, Rosita’s mother has told her to never get married. Now suddenly she’s lighting candles in churches for Rosita to meet a nice boy.

Rosita’s grandmother: She walks with a cane, and Rosita’s worried. Someday she’s going to smack someone with it.

Father Pavel: Rosita’s grandmother calls him “the gloomy Slav.” He accepts small-talk with Rosita as just another cross to bear.

The Vampire: Rosita’s high-school sweetheart. Rosita uses his own “Art of War” dating advice against him.

And Rosita, who is she? Rosita is the girl in the computer lab now googling “hysterical pregnancy” after half an hour spent googling “early pregnancy symptoms.”

Love in the Age of Dispossession
by Loretta Malakie

Coming-of-age novel following a small-town Gen X American girl named Kitty, from her senior year in high school to her life as an extremely unsuccessful lawyer in Manhattan.

The novel begins with three days in the life of a group of high-school friends in 1993, culminating in a fistfight on the village green over the honor of the Prom Queen.

The scene then shifts to New York City. Kitty is called back home for a funeral, and then, years later, someone from her small-town past pays Kitty a visit that changes her life.



A Greater Duty (Galaxy Ascendant Book 1)
by Yakov Merkin

The Galactic Alliance was not ready for war. When it is suddenly invaded by the cold and relentless Tyrannodon Armada, under the command of emotionless, amoral Executor Darkclaw, it is immediately sent reeling.

The invasion was a godsend for some, however, such as Grand Admiral Nayasar Khariah, who had wanted nothing more than revenge on the Alliance following an attack on her homeworld. The arrival of the Tyrannodons presents her with an opportunity, one that she seizes gleefully.

However, Executor Darkclaw, who has been prosecuting the invasion on orders of his master, the all-powerful energy being known only as the High Lord, has started having second thoughts once he unexpectedly starts feeling emotions he does not understand. Suddenly, he finds himself heretically questioning the only purpose he has ever known—irrevocably altering his view of the ongoing war.

Meanwhile, within the Galactic Alliance, Second Scion Dalcon Oresh, member of an order dedicated to preserving the it, struggles to stop the Alliance’s bleeding, the source of which may not be entirely external.

Darkclaw’s newfound friendship with Nayasar will be pushed to its breaking point, Nayasar’s relationships with her closest friends and loved ones will be strained as her quest for vengeance becomes more and more a personal obsession, and Dalcon must determine who he can truly trust.

All the while, the imminent existential threat of the High Lord looms over everything, and the key to stopping him, and saving not just the Alliance, but the entire galaxy, may only be found in the remains of a ancient, powerful race, and the creations they left behind…



Light Unto Another World: Volume 1
by Yakov Merkin

As a soldier, Uriel Makkis was prepared for many things. Being pulled through a portal into another world was not one of them.

He soon learns that he was brought to this world for a reason, as the heralded Sword of Light. However, something is amiss, as he first appeared in the middle of nowhere, rather than the capital as intended.

Back home, he was just an average soldier; here, he can truly make a difference, and Uriel will not let the opportunity pass by.

But it won’t be easy. Uriel will have to rely on his faith, his newfound friends, and the skills and knowledge he brings from back home, as he throws himself headlong into a new conflict, becoming a beacon of light on this new world!

In this new isekai adventure, you can’t just leave the old world behind.

The Compleat Martian Invasion: Earth’s Defense Awakens
by John Taloni

With Earth left in shambles by the Martian invasion, Queen Victoria’s daughter Louise must lead the world through a dire emergency: The Martians are coming back. First she must rescue Cavor from his prison on the Moon in order to build a defense fleet. Even with Cavor their efforts would be for nothing without the genius of Nikola Tesla leading the way. And on Mars, unexpected allies fight a rearguard action to help Earth. Meanwhile the Time Traveler repeatedly appears, but is he friend or foe?

Review: A number of years have elapsed since the Martian Invasion chronicled by H.G. Wells in The War of the Worlds . The damage inflicted on the Earth was severe, and the protracted process of recovery, begun in the British Empire in the last years of Queen Victoria’s reign, now continues under Queen Louise, Victoria’s sixth child and eldest surviving heir after the catastrophe of the invasion. Just as Earth is beginning to return to normalcy, another crisis has emerged. John Bedford, who had retreated into an opium haze after the horrors of his last expedition, is summoned to Windsor Castle where Queen Louise shows him a photograph. “Those are puffs of gas on the Martian surface. The Martians are coming again, Mr. Bedford. And in far greater numbers.” Defeated the last time only due to their vulnerability to Earth’s microbes, there is every reason to expect that this time the Martians will have taken precautions against that threat to their plans for conquest.

Earth’s only hope to thwart the invasion before it reaches the surface and unleashes further devastation on its inhabitants is deploying weapons on platforms employing the anti-gravity material Cavorite, but the secret of manufacturing it rests with its creator, Cavor, who has been taken prisoner by the ant-like Selenites in the expedition from which Mr Bedford narrowly escaped, as chronicled in Mr Wells’s  The First Men in the Moon . Now, Bedford must embark on a perilous attempt to recover the Cavorite sphere lost at the end of his last adventure and then join an expedition to the Moon to rescue Cavor from the caves of the Selenites.

Meanwhile, on Barsoom (Mars),  John Carter and Deja Thoris  find their beloved city of Helium threatened by the Khondanes, whose deadly tripods wreaked so much havoc on Earth not long ago and are now turning their envious eyes back to the plunder that eluded them on the last attempt.

Queen Louise must assemble an international alliance, calling on all of her crowned relatives: Czar Nicholas, Kaiser Wilhelm, and even those troublesome republican Americans, plus all the resources they can summon—the inventions of the Serbian,  Tesla , the research of  Maria Skłowdowska  and her young Swiss assistant Albert, discovered toiling away in the patent office, the secrets recovered from Captain Nemo’s island, and the mysterious interventions of the Time Traveller , who flickers in and out of existence at various moments, pursuing his own inscrutable agenda. As the conflict approaches and battle is joined, an interplanetary effort is required to save Earth from calamity.

As you might expect from this description, this is a rollicking good romp replete with references and tips of the hat to the classics of science fiction and their characters. What seems like a straightforward tale of battle and heroism takes a turn at the very end into the inspiring, with a glimpse of how different human history might have been.

Crisis on Stardust Station
by John Taloni

The cats of Stardust Station have long hidden their intelligence from the humans that live there. Now a crisis threatens them both. Can the cats and humans learn to work together in time to save both the station and the planet below?

A few hundred years from now, Earth has gone to space…and come back. The remnant of a once vibrant space effort persists in the form of a few hundred solar power satellites that provide half of the world’s power. John Aldrin is one of four people crewing the last remaining space station, with the mission to keep the satellites operating. But Earth has neglected them so long that they are on the verge of breakdown.

Benign neglect has allowed something else to happen: In the station’s forest habitat, a group of genetically modified cats have grown to intelligence. Some have been adopted by the astronauts and brought to their living area. Natural telepaths, both groups of Cats have agreed to keep the knowledge of their intelligence secret from the humans.

Their equilibrium is destroyed when a solar flare strikes and knocks out the satellites. The Cats must reveal their secret to save both their station and the world below. But can they convince a skeptical Earth to work with them?

The Long Black
(The Black Chronicles Book 1)
by J.M. Anjewierden

Morgan always assumed that if she could survive growing up in the mines of Planet Hillman – feared for its brutal conditions and gravity twice that of Earth – she could survive anything.

That was before she became a starship mechanic. Now she has to contend with hostile bosses, faulty equipment, and even taking care of her friend’s little girl. Once pirates show up, it’s a wonder she can get any work done at all.

Review: Any time you try a new author it is kind of like sailing into unknown waters, you hope for a great experience but are often disappointed by the author’s style, the story line is not what you had hoped for, the characters are not even slightly interesting and so on….. A book about a young girl striving to grow up on her own terms, in a universe that is hard on everyone with villains who strive to make it even harder.

Please take a chance on this author! I read both of the first two books in this series in one weekend an am pained to wait for the next installment. The characters are easy to like or dislike as is their role in the book, there are interesting twists and turns, great alliances, despicable villains, victorious highs and characters striving to grow and define the world they inhabit.


Black Holiday
(The Black Chronicles Book 2)
by J.M. Anjewierden

Morgan has finally made it, earning an officer’s slot on S.T.E.V.E., the ancient flagship of the Takiyama Merchant House. She’s survived so much to get here, and isn’t about to let lingering nightmares over those events stop her now. That said, even the toughest mechanics need down time. Grudgingly taking some shore leave, Morgan goes to visit the estate of her friend Emily, Baroness Novan. What she doesn’t know is that the first steps towards interstellar war have already been taken by the homeworld she escaped, and important leaders – including Emily – are targeted for Assassination.

Review: A great installment to the series. This book picks up after the events of the first. Morgan agrees to go on vacation with Lady Novan and Gertrude. Things don’t go according to plan and Morgan has to survive being kidnapped. A lot of action and adventure to keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting the next book in the series.


Running Black
(The Black Chronicles Book 3) 
by J. M. Anjewierden

An explosion is only the beginning of her problems…

Morgan is finally back to work, having returned from her disastrous attempt at a vacation just in time to watch an accident cause a massive explosion on one of the other freighters.

With the damaged ship out of commission it is up to the crew of STEVE – Morgan included – to frantically get the cargo transferred and depart more than a month ahead of schedule.

But what Morgan doesn’t know is that the assassination attempts were only the beginning.

Missed maintenance isn’t the only, or worst, danger lurking out in the black.


Black Salvage
(The Black Chronicles Book 4)
by J. M. Anjewierden

Morgan and the crew of STEVE have captured the pirates’ command ship, but can they keep it?

After a harrowing battle on the mining station and in the Black they won an incredibly valuable prize – an armed starship that, once repaired, is capable of subspace jumps without a gate.

All Morgan and her skeleton crew need do is make the long journey home and they will be rewarded handsomely.

Unfortunately, not all the pirates are accounted for, and their nimble frigates are still out there somewhere, plotting to take back what Morgan rightfully commandeered…

Review: I need the next one! These are so good! I can’t put them down and when I’m not reading them I’m thinking about them. To put into perspective… I read, a LOT. So sometimes I forget the plot of series until I start reading a book and then I remember. I don’t have to with this series. I am impatient and check often for the next book in the series. The characters and story are not forgettable in any way and such a rich and textured story. Love this series.

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.

She has a new plan now; simpler, but also more dangerous.


NOTE! Book 6 in The Black Chronicles, Homecoming In Black (The Black Chronicles Book 6), is a “New Arrival.”

by Daniel Humphreys

Harry Dresden’s sorcery goes on a Supernatural-style road trip. Cool car sold separately.
Paxton Locke is the son of a Witch.

Family drama is bad enough without adding human sacrifice to the mix. Ten years ago, his mother killed his father in a grisly ritual that Paxton interrupted. Now he criss-crosses the countryside in his RV working as a paranormal investigator while Mother languishes in jail. She’ll never forgive him for interfering…or for stealing her spellbook.

It started as a normal job for Paxton. At least as normal as speaking to ghosts ever was. But then the terrified shade of a murdered boy warns him of a dangerous, newly-freed entity, and suddenly he has to talk to Mother again to save the day.

In a battle for his very soul, will he be able to endure – or simply fade away?

Dragon Award nominee Daniel Humphreys’ urban fantasy debut brings all the best elements of Supernatural and the Dresden Files, written with his typical engaging style and evocative prose. Avid fans of the genre will be satisfied with the sarcasm, quips, and pop culture jokes found in Fade. Not to mention the spells, action and family drama.

Rebirths: A Tale of Azuran
by Frank B. Luke

Enraged at the Almighty after losing everything, Derke turns to black magic in hopes of restoring his old life. But the evil one demands a terrible price. Derke, once blessed, stands at the edge of a cliff, ready to lose himself to darkness.

Amazon Cusomter Review:

I really liked this story. Derke is a priest (miracle-man) whose faith is crushed when he loses his family to a plague. A hope of regaining them is extended by a woman who tempts him to abandon his faith and follow her. Derke does. He leaves all of his former life behind and delves deep into the dark magical arts of necromancy to try and recover his wife and children.

But his faith calls him back. He struggles and fights against what he knows is right in his heart.

The matters of faith in this story are derived straight from the Christian viewpoint. There is more than simple allusion to the Christian faith, it is a Fantasy story steeped in a Christian world.

Ordinary Superheroes
by Christopher Lansdown

Millenia ago martian superheroes defeated an ancient evil, who was imprisoned on a moon of Jupiter.

Neglected for centuries, the prison is about to fail, giving the ancient evil a second chance to wipe out all life in the solar system.

Unfortunately, the Martians have gone extinct so it’s up to earth’s superheroes to save the day. Worse, there’s only one man who even knows of the threat, and he’s not a superhero. On the plus side, training teams of superheroes to save the world is what he does.

Mr Macho, Mockingbird, and the Mega Ninja were just ordinary college student/superheroes doing ordinary student things like attending class and ordinary superhero things like foiling bank robberies and catching drug dealers until one night when they returned to their apartment and found a strange old man with a mystical amulet sitting on their couch.

Unfortunately, while he can teach them how to teleport to other planets, he has no idea how to repair the prison. Did the amulet pick correctly this time, and will they figure out what they need to do before it’s too late?

The Devil’s Dictum
Frederick Gero Heimbach

In a topsy-turvy United States founded by pirates, the personal assassin to the chief justice receives a terrifying order: round up and kill all men who look like himself.

Why does the chief justice want these men dead?

What threat could they possibly pose?

And can the assassin save them—or will he become the final victim?

Spooky, sly and satirical, The Devil’s Dictum recasts J. Edgar Hoover as a Satanic high priest, Calvin Coolidge as a private eye, and Richard Nixon as the pilot of a giant armored robot. Readers hungering for original and mind-blowing alternate history need look no further.

Ronald Reagan’s Brilliant Bullet: A Cold Warriors Novel 
Frederick Gero Heimbach

It’s Ronald Reagan in a jet pack! The author of The Devil’s Dictum returns with another novel that shreds the history books.

The setting is the Cold War and Ronald Reagan has a shiny new toy to play with: a rocket powered suit. He’ll need it to battle the terrifying monstrosity Leonid Brezhnev is building on a secret base in Siberia.

Standing with Reagan are Margaret Thatcher and Billy Graham, each wielding super powers. (If Thatcher in an eye patch won’t turn you on, nothing will.)

Reagan insists on piloting the rocket himself—but the hardware is experimental and just might kill him.

Threats are everywhere: a treacherous Congressman, a wide-eyed nun from the Tudor era, an enigmatic boy genius called R2, talking heads on Mount Rushmore, punks in back alleys and missiles in the skies.

All while signs of a literal Armageddon unfold before Reagan’s steely eyes.

Cherry Drop (Abner Fortis, ISMC Book 1) 
by P.A. Piatt

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.

When the Space Marines discover proof of a long-buried betrayal, though, friends become enemies, and their mission goes awry. Does Fortis have what it takes to lead the Space Marines to survival in the face of overwhelming odds?

Honor Flight
by P.A. Piatt

“Honor Flight” is a stand-alone novel in the Abner Fortis, ISMC universe.

It is set fifty years after the series begins with “Cherry Drop.”

Please enjoy it as the novel that inspired the series.

Fifty years ago, the International Space Marine Corps (ISMC) fought and won a narrow victory against a vicious foe.

Now, Fleet Transport ‘Astral Plane’ is transporting survivors of this battle when a garbled warning is received, followed by orders from the President of the United Nations of Terra.

Her orders are simple: Unconditional surrender, or die.

Abner Fortis and the other Space Marines on ‘Astral Plane’ aren’t about to surrender, but what can two hundred aged ISMC veterans on an unarmed Fleet transport do against overwhelming hostile forces?

It’s no coincidence their motto is DINLI. Do It, Not Like It.

They just have to figure out how.

by Iris Paustian

As different as Night and Day.

Tender One lost her beloved brother, and now someone in this unfamiliar, underground Night Dweller community wants Tender One dead. If she can overcome her culture shock, maybe she can discover the truth before anyone else is harmed.

Nub is fascinated by Tender One and her people—but he is also the prime suspect. Will Tender One reject this stranger who looks nothing like her people? Or will she find the courage to follow her heart?

And then Tender One discovers a dragon’s egg!

As cultures clash, love is kindled and mysteries unfold on Jinjang, the world where a year is but a single day.

Firefly Season 2
(Time Traders Book 1)
by Travis J.I. Corcoran

When you’re a time trader – someone with a ship that can hop sideways across the millions of alternate timelines – the big money isn’t in technology or science, it’s in entertainment. There are some universes where George Lucas didn’t die on the set of American Graffiti but instead went on to make a space fantasy classic. In other universes there’s a movie called “Dune” by Jodorowsky. And in some there’s a guy named Tolkien who wrote a sequel to “The Hobbit”.

Ask any timetrader and he’ll tell you: put three things together – buyer, seller, and product – and that’s where the magic happens.

And by magic, timetraders mean “profit”.

Now the crew of the Sturnus-class timeship al-Din (kaiser Huck, riverman Oive, artificer Johann-stepson-twice-Friedrich, and galfreitag Ginny Mae) have all three of these things lined up, because they finally secured a copy of a certain TV show.

There’s just one problem, and his name is Friedrick Richter.

…or maybe there’s more than one problem, depending on how you look at the situation, because things can get pretty complicated when timelines cross.

So get yourself a stein of mead and a bowl of spiced yam sticks – or pretzels, if that’s all you’ve got in this timeline – pull up a chair, and lend an ear to see how it all turns out.

Deathbringer: The Spellswords Saga: Book One (The Spellsword Saga 1) 
by Blake Carpenter (Author), Michael Gallagher (Editor)

Inga Alenir is a Swordbearer. She is the latest in a long line of women to inherit a magical weapon called Deathbringer. She’s also dead, murdered on her wedding day by the ruthless and covetous noblewoman Yenda Avard, who steals the sword after killing Inga and her entire family.

And yet, some secrets won’t stay buried. Deathbringer has a will and a consciousness of its own, and even has the power to raise Inga from the dead for a short time. It warns her that she has one week to find and retrieve the sword before death reclaims her—permanently. With each day bringing her doom and final demise ever closer, Inga will have to see just how far she’s willing to go to achieve her vengeance.

DEATHBRINGER is a compositional mix between the violent, grisly hunt for revenge in the film THE NIGHTINGALE and the tale of Vasher and his talking sword Nightblood in Brandon Sanderson’s WARBREAKER. Fans of dark fantasy, of tragic love stories and tales about seeking revenge against long odds will enjoy this debut novel by Blake Carpenter in the world of Agareth where a scorned, young widow fights back against the powerful elites that wronged her, and begins a journey that might turn the entire world against her.

What Readers are Saying About Deathbringer

“I fell in love with these characters… If you love a good revenge story, it’s so good. I had a great time with this one!”
The Nerdy Narrative (

I think this one is truly special… The world of Agareth is a vast and uncompromising one, being filled with dangers and factions striking out to meet their own ends, forging their way in a world which appears obsessed with progress. However, seeing our main protagonist, Inga, rise up to the challenge in spite of what’s placed in front of her makes it all the more compelling to read.
The Lord Otter (

“Those who like tales of revenge with protagonists who do not lose their humanity or become permanently obsessed by it will enjoy this book. Anyone who wants to see other cultures portrayed in new settings and new ways will find it entertaining as well. The novel should appeal to fantasy fans everywhere but particularly those interested in Slavic and Russian milieus, as the story has the air of Anastasia about it. Those who want a new twist on familiar tropes should find this story quite engaging.”
Caroline FurlongUpstream Reviews (

“Carpenter has a deft, confident style that pulls the reader in and keeps them there, connecting with the characters and exploring their world. He has crafted an exquisitely written, perfectly-paced, throughly gripping tale. I am definitely looking forward to the next installment. Highly recommended.”
S. Kirk Pierzchala, author of Echoes Through a Distant Glass, Harshest Dawn and more

M., Goodreads Review: It’s technically amazing. Snappy, quick paced, action packed, and with memorable characters who are well written and well realized that feel like actual people. Also has a cool early 1900’s Russian inspired semi-Steampunk setting which is super rare to see in Fantasy. 8/10.

K.D. McAllister, Amazon Review: “Blake absolutely stuck the landing with a highly satisfying conclusion to Inga’s tragic mission and by books end I was fully invested in her, the supporting characters, the BLADE LORE, and teases of what is to come. You can just tell Blake has so much more he wants to tell us! Buy this so that he CAN! 4/5 stars”

The Thing in the Woods: A Small Town Creature Feature
(The Long War Book 1) 

by Matthew W. Quinn

Seventeen-year-old James Daly thought moving from Atlanta to small-town Edington senior year would kill him, but he didn’t mean it literally.

Now James has to work at the Edington Best Buy to help pay the mortgage they’re underwater on. He can’t wait until he turns eighteen and can leave Edington behind forever.

But when a local boy challenges him to an ATV race near a tree farm most people avoid, things get much worse. James’ rival is slaughtered by a tentacled horror emerging from a nearby pond.The monstrosity has been worshiped by a secretive coven since before the Civil War, and its devotees don’t take kindly to their secrets being threatened.Now with the aid of Amber Webb, a local girl he doesn’t like liking, and a renegade cult member, James must fight to avoid ending up bound to a picnic table and offered up to a monster. He must do battle with both the local cultists and their predatory master, THE THING IN THE WOODS.

★★★★★ Quinn writes effectively and convincingly in recreating a new take on H.P. Lovecraft and the genre. I am not much of a fan of horror, but this work kept the right mix of tempo, detail, suspense, interesting characters, and plot development to keep me engaged. The creepiest horror stories are the ones that take place in setting just like where you live… – John Allred

★★★★★ This is Not Mayberry – This tale of a Lovecraftian cult in the backwoods of a rural Georgia town is both suspenseful and frightening. The creature being worshiped by the cult is an ancient, multi-tentacled monster that lives in a lake in the middle of an isolated tree farm. When high school student James Daly stumbles upon the cult and watches the monster devour a rival classmate, things go downhill fast. Matthew W. Quinn blends together small-town politics, Civil War legends, and more profanity than Lovecraft himself would be comfortable with. This is not Mayberry. Highly recommended for fans of eldritch horror in a realistic, modern-day setting. – Darrell Grizzle

★★★★★ Good Read – A fast-paced horror novel with a likeable hero, a monster with a backstory, and a hidden commentary on social issues in southern small towns. – Alex S.

Across the Floors of Silent Seas: A Short Story (Till Human Voices Wake Us Book 1)
by C.S. Johnson

Do mermaids believe in humans?

While working on a deep-sea diving assignment at the University of California, oceanography student Jay Bishop is dragged into a volcanic tube towards the earth’s core and certain death.

But much to his surprise, Jay not only survives the fall, he finds himself taken prisoner by a community of mermaids and kept alive as a science experiment. Confused and disoriented, Jay’s only hope to escape back to the surface is found in Paga, an elder of the community who believes Jay’s unexpected arrival marks the fulfillment of a terrifying prophecy.

With the community rising against them, Jay and Paga face dangerous choices — and their consequences — if Jay is ever to see home again. Will Jay make it back to the world on the surface? And even if he does, how can his life be the same ever again?


“Are the others boring you to death, that you’re listening so intently to my remarks, darling?” Jay asked, teasing even though he welcomed her churlish chatter.

“People confuse boredom for stability, and stability for sanity,” she muttered.

Jay laughed. “Well, I’m sure some people would never assume we had a solid grip on sanity before we decided to become oceanographers. With several metric tons of water pressure surrounding us at these depths, I’m sure someone would be quick to question our mental facilities and their working order.”

“True enough, brother mine.”  Noelani paused, and Jay knew she was likely rolling her pretty eyes. “And yours especially, since your sanity was barely there to begin with.”


Enjoy this short story adventure tale set before Till Human Voices Wake Us, a science fantasy novel with an unlikable protagonist, sadistic mermaids, and the trip of a lifetime.

Slumbering: An Epic Fantasy Adventure Series (The Starlight Chronicles Book 1)
by C.S. Johnson *FREE*

A narcissistic teenager who doesn’t believe in destiny. 

A city under supernatural attack. 

An adventure that unfortunately changes everything. 

Sixteen-year-old Hamilton Dinger leads a charmed life. He’s got the grades for the top of the class, the abilities of a star athlete and Tetris player, and the charisma to get away with anything. Everything seems to be going along perfectly, including his plans to ask out Gwen Kessler, as he enters into tenth grade at Apollo Central High School.

Everything, that is, until a meteor crashes into the city, releasing the Seven Deadly Sinisters and their leader, Orpheus, from their celestial prison, and awakening Hamilton’s longtime dormant supernatural abilities. Suddenly Hamilton finds himself reluctantly allied with his self-declared mentor, Elysian, a changeling dragon, and Starry Knight, a beautiful but dangerous warrior, as they seek to protect the souls of Apollo City from the Sinisters and their evil intentions.

Can Hamilton give up his self-proclaimed entitlement to happiness in order to follow the call of a duty he doesn’t want? More importantly, will he willingly sacrifice all he has to find out the truth?


At the time, I didn’t really believe that anything outside my control would change my life. Or at least, not in a significant, substantial way. My life was all about myself, and I figured I had complete control over that. Anything that happened outside of my control was more or less because I let it happen, and didn’t feel like stopping it.

Beauty’s Curse: A Historical Fantasy Fairy Tale Retelling of Sleeping Beauty (Once Upon a Princess Book 1)
by C.S. Johnson *FREE*

“I have better things to do.”
“Like what?” Rose asked. “Waste your life on a fool’s journey, under a silly girl’s orders?”
“I have never considered saving your life to be the same as wasting mine, Rosary.” He came and stood in front of her, the ease of his presence replaced by an unusual heat rather than familiar warmth. Rose had never before been bothered by the six inches he stood taller than her, but all of a sudden the shadow of his strength imposed itself on her.
The cursed beauty of the moonlight revealed the clarity and sharpness of his eyes as she gazed up at him. “What if you did waste your life though? What if?”
“If I have wasted my life, I have wasted it on you. Willingly.”

For four years, Princess Aurora of Rhone—Rose to her friends—has searched the world for a way to break the curse placed on her by Magdalina, the wicked ruler of the fairies at war with her kingdom. Under the curse, Rose is doomed to die on her eighteenth birthday after pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. And time is running out.

On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Rose makes the journey home with her friends—Theo, a priest with a penchant for revenge; Mary, a young and talented fairy; and Ethan and Sophia, siblings with a troubled past–as pressure from her father, King Stefanos, leaves her with two equally unsatisfying options: Abdicate the throne, or get married.

Enjoy this novella series retelling of the Sleeping Beauty, with new characters, new plot twists, and plenty of action and adventure. Perfect for teen and young adult historical fantasy readers, and check out Part II, “Beauty’s Quest,” as the story continues!

A Knight’s Quest for the Holy Grail 
by C.S. Johnson *FREE*

It’s not always the quest for the cup. Sometimes, it’s the quest for what’s in the cup.

Lance wants nothing more than to be there to fight the dragons for his beloved Princess Alexandra. With his faithful steed by his side, Lance sets out for the magic elixir found only in the Holy Grail. With its strengthening power, facing off an old hag, the bewitching woods, and the strange ogre who lives under a bridge should be easy.

But when it comes to Alexandra’s dragons, things aren’t quite what they all seem to be.

Will Lance’s gift be enough — or will his princess require something even more powerful to sustain her?

Pull up a cup of your favorite “elixir” and enjoy this sweet and snarky satire story from C. S. Johnson, where the dragons are real, even if they aren’t. 


Every knight has a quest, and every quest has its reward.

As a knight-errant, albeit one still in training, with only a year of service behind him, Lance took his duty seriously. But waking up was also a serious business, and that was why, despite the midmorning light flickering over his face, Lance was still half asleep. His faithful steed stepped up to help him, breathing smelly fumes into his face.

“Blah!” Lance sputtered, trying to clear his tongue of the frothy waft. “What have you been eating, Percy?”

His pet’s pungent wake-up call forced Lance to roll over. When the heat of Percy’s breath continued to eat into the shield of his pending sleep, Lance finally gave in to his beast’s rude awakening.

“Alright, I’m getting up. Back from me, you fearsome brute.”

The horse was far from intimidated by Lance’s waking grogginess; instead, he moved closer to his master, nuzzling him with his wet nose.

“You’re lucky you’re the runt of your family,” Lance grumbled, sitting up. He patted down his hair, brushing the chestnut locks out of his eyes, before taking in the full sight of the bouncing creature before him. “Or you would be tied outside, like the ones at my mother’s house.”

Percy gave a small yip, and the nuzzle became a nudge.

“Alright, alright,” Lance muttered, petting his horse’s long, flowing mane playfully. “I know you’re hungry.”

He also knew there was no point in trying to sleep when Percy was hungry—no matter how sleepy he still was.

“I suppose you’re right, anyway, Percy.” Lance yawned and rubbed his hands over his face. “We promised the princess we would save her today, and every knight knows there is nothing more important than completing his quest.”

Lance tossed Percy several treats and stroked his pet affectionately, before he put on his armor for the day. He pulled a breastplate polished to a shine over his head, slipped his feet into protective boots, and even donned a helmet to protect his face from the bright summer sunshine.

Before too long, he stepped outside his quarters. Percy came trotting eagerly after him. With his steed at his side and a grin on his face, Lance set out into the morning to see his princess.

“Princess Alexandra, I am coming for you,” he called out rapturously, eager to see his beloved once more.


It’s a good romantic tale that hints at the darker sides of depression and mental health, and the troubles we sometimes face when we befriend our demons, with liquid portals, jokes about avocados, strange references to illegal plants, and coffee runs.

What’s not to love?


“… An endearing story of love … ” ~ Dee Bookworm

The Heights of Perdition: A Science Fiction Romance Series (The Divine Space Pirates Book 1)
by C.S. Johnson *FREE*

Falling in love was out of the question … until it was the answer. 

There is nothing Aeris St. Cloud wants more than to win her father’s love and the acceptance of her family unit by joining the Military Academy at New Hope. But after she is captured by the fearsome space pirate, Captain Chainsword, Aerie is certain falling in love with her nation’s arch enemy is the last possible way to earn their coveted esteem.

Driven by vengeance, Exton Shepherd never set out to save anyone. As he circles the war-torn world in his pirated starship, the Perdition, he only sees his father’s ghost lurking around every corner and the looming darkness on the horizon. When Aerie unexpectedly tumbles into his life, he finds he cannot trust her, anymore than he can ignore her. But just like the raging war down on Earth, it’s tempting to think he can …

When the war ascends to the heights of the Perdition, Aerie’s loyalty, and Exton’s heart, are put to the test. But will love be enough to save them — and others — from certain destruction?


The Heights of Perdition is the first book in the Divine Space Pirates trilogy, a futuristic romance series where family, faith, and freedom take center stage.


Questions raised about government, religion, and human nature were peppered throughout the narrative, elevating The Heights of Perdition from a mere space fantasy to something much more thought-provoking. ~ Author Jess Jesinghaus

The Mummy of Monte Cristo
J. Trevor Robinson

Revenge takes time; fortunately Edmond Dantes doesn’t sleep. Or breathe.

In a world of monsters and magic, Edmond Dantes has a pretty good life.

He’s just been made captain of a ship, and he’s about to marry his sweetheart.

But when jealousy, spite, and ambition conspire to frame him for treason, he loses everything.

To make things right, he’ll need to give up the only thing he has left: his humanity.

by Neovictorian

Have you sometimes felt, since an early age, that you were an alien, somehow placed on Earth and observing the antics of humans as if they were a different species? Why do they believe such stupid things? Why do they do such dumb things? And why do they keep doing them over and over again, seemingly incapable of learning from the bad outcomes of all the previous attempts?

That is how Cal Adler felt since childhood and, like most people with such feelings, kept them quiet and bottled up while trying to get ahead in a game whose rules often seemed absurd. In his senior year in high school, he encounters a substitute guidance counselor who tells him, without any preliminary conversation, precisely how he feels. He’s assured he is not alone, and that over time he will meet others. He is given an enigmatic contact in case of emergency. He is advised, as any alien in a strange land, to blend in while observing and developing his own talents.

Then he meets a Mystery Woman…and the real adventure begins.

The Strange Recollections of Martha Klemm: Sara was Judith
by Julian Hawthorne, P Alexander, Michael Tierney, Robert A Lupton

“She is not there, she is something else; she is an angel—or a devil come back to peep at us, to be worshiped, to mock us, to kill us, to smile on us as we die, and to go on to another, again to ravish and destroy him! What is she—who is she? No one knows! But she was, before the Pyramids, and when our great Londons and Parises are a jungle and a swamp, she was what men desire and can never possess, the glimmer in the dark, the mirage in the desert, the thing that is, and is not!”

The editor for All-Story Weekly called “Sara Was Judith” “one of the most remarkable stories ever written. It is entirely unlike any story that you have ever read.” Indeed, Hawthorne weaves a strange tale that straddles gothic, romantic adventure, and even body horror in a work that is truly prototypic of what would eventually become known as “Weird Fiction.”

Martha Klemm’s school chum, Sara, is an impossibly bland and uninspired woman living a rather dull and ordinary life—quite the contrast with Martha’s, filled with globetrotting adventure. Sara’s daughter Judith is her exact opposite: filled with life and vibrancy, mystery and mischief.

When a deadly storm drowns the girl saving the young lad who fancies her, Sara, in her one act of passion, hangs herself in her boudoir. Pronounced dead, Sara shocks the mourning household, friends, and doctor when she emerges later that evening, more vivacious than she has ever been… and protesting that she is Judith!

Julian Hawthorne’s final novel for All-Story Weekly is a haunting and beautiful tale of love and betrayal and the struggle between good and evil that Miss Martha Klemm finds herself caught, an active and partial observer, within!

Doris Dances & Fires Rekindled
by Julian Hawthorne, P Alexander (Editor), Michael Tierney (Editor), Robert A Lupton (Editor)

Doris Dances

Robert “Bob” McIvor Melrose, an eccentric banjo-playing millionaire, was always a child at heart and wanted nothing more than a child of his own. When his gold-digging wife forces him to choose between her and an orphan infant girl he adopted, Bob takes little Doris with him on the road.

Leaving all but a pittance for himself and Doris to live on to his wife, the father and daughter live a simple and carefree life as tramps. Gerda Kent, an artist on the verge of fame, hones her skills and creates her masterpiece capturing the loving father and daughter, Bob picking on his banjo while Doris dances.

Hawthorne delivers a cozy and clever comic romance to warm the heart.

Fires Rekindled

“Yes, it may be that thunders of Armageddon portend that after so many blindfolded ages, the veil of Isis is being lifted at last! Some of us at last may consciously be admitted to intercourse with souls disincarnate, and hear nightingale notes of paradise. How can I doubt it!”

Against the backdrop of the Great War, an American visitor in London doing research on his ancestor is struck by a peculiar deja vu–much stronger than the mere sense he has been to the house where he is staying, he finds he knows of details that he could not possibly, even had he once visited in his youth. The strange sense sends him on a quest for knowledge to uncover a past-life love and solve a century-old possible murder!

The Strange Recollections of Martha Klemm: Absolute Evil & A Goth from Boston
by Julian Hawthorne, P Alexander, Michael Tierney, Robert A Lupton

Absolute Evil

“Thomas Aquinas says that angels, white and black, can change men into beasts permanently; enchanters could do it, too, but not for long. Seventeenth century witchcraft affirmed that certain natural objects and rites could produce strange effects without aid of God or devil. But the operator must renounce God and Christ, be re-baptised, trample on the cross, and be marked in a certain way—a symbolic transaction. The person could then do only evil—good was forbidden to him, or her!”

Absolute Evil is, in many ways, Julian Hawthorne’s coda on his father’s works pertaining to the theme of Calvinist “doom.” Many of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s villains and tragic figures hearken back to Marlowe’s Faustus, with the worldview that destiny and damnation are unalterable though it was the choices they made through free-will that set them on the road to hell.

Unlike his father’s work on the subject, however, Absolute Evil is an action-packed thriller in which a Presbyterian minister turns himself into a werewolf and haunts the New England beaches.

A Goth From Boston

“Her father assured me with pride that she could—as he expressed it—lick any boy of her age on the Beach. And he said to her once, in my hearing, when she had come in rather late to cook dinner, with that grin of hers, in spite of a black eye and a bloody nose, and with a tale how she had ‘walloped’ her latest antagonist—‘Right-o, Polly, my lass,’ he said; ‘as long as ye lick ’em, ye’re excused; but the first one as licks you ye’ll marry him—mind that!—so be he’s not married already; and that’ll be a lesson to ye never to mix it up with married men, anyway!’ A plain reversion to the Stone Age, you see.”

While on an errand to gently turn down a proposal from Cabot Selwyn, a Professor of Biology, Martha Klemm meets a most intriguing and alluring beauty–working in the service of the good doctor as mere maid!

Fate and the forces of nature conspire to throw the trio together time and again: can the Doctor escape his ivory tower understanding of biology and embrace the human?

Hawthorne explores the dichotomy between the “Prospero” and the “Caliban” within the human spirit, in this adventure on the high seas featuring a delightful Tomboy, a hapless professor, a chad sailor, and of course, Martha Klemm!
