The Plague Within (Brier Hospital Series)

by Lawrence Gold

Even in the age of the genome and sophisticated biotechnology, medical progress still moves at a snail’s pace. Seasoned investigators are matured by experience and they accept the virtue of the too-slow scientific process. The young, however have been brought up in a world of instant gratification, and they barrel ahead never looking back to see the havoc in their wake.
So it is with Dr. Harmony Lane. In her single-minded obsession to cure her patients, she cuts corners and treats a desperately ill woman with an experimental viral vector provided by an unscrupulous research scientist. While he shares her impatience, he cares nothing for her humanistic sensibilities. She uses a similar vector on her patients with autoimmune diseases.
While the vector has remarkable curative properties, it soon becomes clear that it has devastating and lethal side effects.
The race is on to cure or at least control the vector before it kills again.
The novel proves, once again, that “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”.

Pressure: First Encounter

by Alex Beyman

Three miles beneath the waves, the crew of the Argyro deepsea research station studies exotic life in a world without sun. None could’ve realized what waited for them in the trench below…until it reached out to their dreams.

It spoke in a language we could not understand, and in words impossible to ignore. So the topside powers sent a sleep researcher to make contact, our small minds feebly answering it’s call. Had we known what it wanted, we’d have remained silent.

When that motive is discovered by the crew of the Argyro, their mission will change from one of peaceful contact from the surface world to preventing it at all costs.

CHUM

by John Buckley

Jen, Fred, and Scott are watching their favorite movie Shadow Thief in Portland Maine. Suddenly Fred springs the idea of them all going to visit Veraclare-it is the entertainment planet where dead (and some living believe it or not) actor’s movies live on as holograms-with many of the real actors controlling their holograms using brain implants. You can touch and act out scenes from your favorite movies-with your favorite actors-with these 3 dimensional holograms (making it a movie fan’s nirvana). You can be in The Godfather going toe to toe with Brando! Or taking pitches from Roy Hobbs in The Natural (think about it. Not just another vacation with the kids).

They accept Fred’s urging and travel to the Spaceport. Yet in the back of Jen’s mind is the idea of saving her favorite actor-Ben Train-from a self induced coma. Ben rejected the notion of being alive after losing the Oscar for the 4th time. Hatred welled up inside him and he just snapped. 30 years later Jen hopes to change his fate. She wants to help him if it’s all she ever does. But does he want to be saved from himself?

Puzzling as this plot is, it’s the heart of this ride through the mire that is one actor’s decision to give up on everything. This creates voyagers with different paths. They are sidewalk smoke rings dissolving into the wind. It becomes rapidly clear everything is hurling them forward towards Ben Train (and his living burial). Why did he throw away his acting career so young? Why is he still blowing that scene day after day on Veraclare? And why is there such secrecy surrounding his actual whereabouts?

It’s Blade Runner meets The Great Gatsby. Not for the faint of heart.

And if he fails?

Cataclysmic war that will engulf the entire galaxy.
