January 2017Dragon EyesBill ParkerThe highly acclaimed saga of the Five Moons continues as Tales of the Green Jinn: Dragon Eyes carries this action-packed adventure into the future. Dragon Eyes is a mystical walk on the wild side of science fiction.

As I recall, it all started with a dream. I awoke from that dream only to find that we had a mission the Five Moons could not handle. Can you believe that? The Five Moons. So it was that my father brought me to a secret – a whole new ship -- the Green Jinn. Everything about the Green Jinn was an illusion, and nobody even knew she existed. Admiral Dallas Blake made me captain of the Green Jinn.

That was how the Green Jinn began its first mission – to hunt down the worst interplanetary crime boss that ever existed. David Zharn was so far beyond evil that even Admiral Johnson could not nail this scum, but we would not let Admiral Johnson down. It all started out with the best of intentions. That’s when everything went sideways.
January 2017Dead Boy WalkingRod MartinezWhen a local high school student is murdered, his friends rally together to find his killer, but they get help from an unexpected source - their dead friend - who is having issues himself as he struggles with existing between life and death, trying to figure the origin of a ring that has supernaturally attached itself to his finger and glows bright amber, and fighting an unseen adversary who wants to bring him back where he belongs - dead. All of these are intertwined with each other, he just doesn't know it. January 2017Redeem The Knight: The TrilogyDavid V. MamminaThe ultimate and complete edition of the Redeem the Knight series is here. Six hundred years after the assumed apocalypse, the New Vatican has raised an army of holy knights to usher in a rehabilitated world of order and light. Equipped with the Divine Mace and the Armor of God, these knights are exclusively chosen to defend righteousness and crush rebellious evil. While the holy order sets out to portray a greater example for the rest of the rising world, one of their own falls into darkness. A holy knight has committed terrible sins of vengeance against those allegedly responsible for killing his wife and child. In turn, he has been exiled to Islandia, a nearby island, to live out his days of solitude with only a faithful dog to accompany him. This is the story of a disgraced paladin on a quest for redemption in a troubled world that needs him the most. January 2017Darius Dinn And The Temporal EngineJames KruseThe tale I am writing here concerns a mysterious boy named Darius Dinn. The story of how he came to save us, all happened a long time ago before the Outsiders came and overtook the natural order of life in Haden. While the world marveled at horseless carriages and radio waves, I shudder in the knowledge of the terrifyingly genius creations I witnessed with my own weak eyes, right here in this little western town, cut off from the world save for one lone steam train. I once called myself an inventor, but I was wrong, the truth of how far the minds of men could go and the creations they could bring forth has humbled me into a mere tinkerer. I chronicle the story now, so many may know how an orphan boy came to us and gave us hope. -Durban Wells January 2017Airship NationTom DeMarcoAbout Dark World Chronicles:

The world has gone dark. Nothing works. Cars and trucks and airplanes and guns and bombs are nothing more than paperweights. A mysterious disturbance propagated onto the earth’s magnetic field has the effect of inhibiting all explosions. It has repealed most of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, leaving the world as it was in your great great grandparents’ time. The villain (or hero, depending on your perspective) who has made this happen is the physicist Homer Layton. He must be destroyed. And his stupid machine that injects the disturbance must be destroyed. Because as long as it is running there can never be another real war. That is unacceptable. Fortunes of treasure and innovation have been invested in war materiel, all of it now useless. Most people would like to have their cars and computers and televisions working again, but that’s not what really matters. What really matters is that governments cannot get on with the business of war. The power elites around the world have determined to track down Layton and his little colony of war opponents and smash them. Then the nuclear war that that was just about to happen when he turned on his damnable machine can finally get started . . .

The prototype time/space transport device has been judged by the councils as too dangerous to risk using. Thalesian historian Pi-Sigma Avalon cannot resist the temptation. Just one quick jump, back to Old Earth, the lost world of their past, shrouded in mystery. No one need know. But he stays much longer that he intends, and comes back changed. With him is Dr. Eloise Smith, an Old Earth human who confounds their expectations of that primitive species. His actions, the information he brings back, and Eloise herself, threaten to throw the peaceful, orderly society of Thales into chaos. And if the philosopher monks of Eden are correct, Avalon and Eloise face an unimaginably challenging future which cannot be avoided, because it has already happened.

"Intelligent, witty, and finely detailed, ELOISE & AVALON is a novel to get lost in." — Allen Steele

Vi and Cal were getting used to married life, and Vi was looking forward to life as a normal woman, and not posing a danger to her husband`s sanity. But there were signs hinting that her past was not really passed. That painting that Lee had done of Vi, a souvenir of their last encounter, proved to be a reminder of all that she left behind, and even more. The newly born twins were a joy, especially Howie. Ruth was different, however. Very different. Lee has discovered that Rabbi Jacobs has a special scroll in his massive and unorganised collection of manuscripts, one far more unusual than he imagines. It belongs to Lee, and she is set on regaining it. That scroll describes her ancient role, one that she guards jealously. Her role as The Gatekeeper.
