Deadly Wands

by Brent Reilly

Completely rewritten for 2014, this action-packed epic fantasy tells the remarkable adventures of an orphan boy with incredible powers who grows up in the Dark Ages during a brutal world war fought with non-magical wands that shoot fireballs and enable flight. A tactical genius, he leads his friends in epic air battles to destroy the genocidal monster that killed his family. Mature content makes this story unsuitable for little kids looking for the next Harry Potter.



Dame of Owls

by A.M. Belrose

Obsidian, Dame of Owls, is a knight of the Winter Court. She is used to grand battles, hardships, and is very skilled in general dragon slaying. What she’s not used to is playing kidnapper and delivery woman for the Winter Queen’s whims, but what Her Majesty says is law. Irritating, boring, troublesome law.

Chris just got out of prison, which would be more impressive if he’d even been arrested for a good reason. All he wants is to live a quiet life, keep his head down, and shelve books. Beautiful women marching into his store is a plus, certainly, but not a requirement.

The pissed off, violent Summer Knight that follows her is not on Chris’s agenda at any point.

God of the Game (Dreamstate)

by Kit Yan

Join our nameless hero as he effortlessly traverses dimensions, jumping from multiverses to metaverses, pursuing a mindless selection of violent, sexual vocations. Existence here is a hedonistic pit. With unlimited choice and eternity at his disposal, life should be meaningful. But it is not. Poor fool is stuck in his human past, continuously digs up the grave of his mortal time on Earth. Unresolved desires, ex-girlfriends and aimless addictions, the makings of a flawed deity; one that pisses on everything he creates, screws everyone he makes. No rules, and purely anarchic, so meet a motley crew of divine characters ever ready to crush the fragile egg of sanity.

Dear reader, pray your faith saves, for your convictions of infinity, of heaven and hell, may never be the same after this.

I am not your father’s punch and run superhero. I am a problem in motionâ??and for better or worse, I am on the road to being seriously mental.

Join me on my quest for purpose and sanity as I journey through life in other people’s bodies. For these are the chronicles of one who feeds on killersâ??my killers. These are the chronicles of Marko Santana.

Born in Texas. Died all over.

Six children of different racial backgrounds, who have died at different times throughout history since the birth of Christ, come to Heaven where they are given wings by God, and who join together in a mutual pact, just the six of them, to become members in Heaven not of the Good children, and not of the Better children, and not of the Best children, but of their own special little group, the ‘little angels who like to race’, the Racing Angelettes!

“And God pressed the dead child to His heart,
and wings were given him so that he could fly…”
Hans Christian Anderson; The Angel.

AUTHOR BIO: Walking several beats, reporter G G Collins racked up a lot of column inches, a few awards and a writing fellowship at Duke University. She never met a story she didn’t like.

There was another side lurking. This side of her personality is fond of the strange, the frightening, the paranormal. When she graduated from children’s books at about 12, she began her adult reading career with Shirley Jackson’s “We Have Always Lived in the Castle.” Wow! She wasn’t expecting that ending.

The day she discovered the Hopi ceremony to call back the dead, she just had to ask the question: What would happen if the wrong spirit returned? “Reluctant Medium” resulted and a new series was born.
