Triplanetary

by E.E. Smith

Two thousand million or so years ago two galaxies were colliding; or, rather, were passing through each other. A couple of hundreds of millions of years either way do not matter, since at least that much time was required for the inter-passage. At about that same timeâ??within the same plus-or-minus ten percent margin of error, it is believedâ??practically all of the suns of both those galaxies became possessed of planets.
There is much evidence to support the belief that it was not merely a coincidence that so many planets came into being at about the same time as the galactic inter-passage. Another school of thought holds that it was pure coincidence; that all suns have planets as naturally and as inevitably as cats have kittens.
Be that as it may, Arisian records are clear upon the point that before the two galaxies began to coalesce, there were never more than three solar systems present in either; and usually only one. Thus, when the sun of the planet upon which their race originated grew old and cool, the Arisians were hard put to it to preserve their culture, since they had to work against time in solving the engineering problems associated with moving a planet from an older to a younger sun.
Since nothing material was destroyed when the Eddorians were forced into the next plane of existence, their historical records also have become available. Those recordsâ??folios and tapes and playable discs of platinum alloy, resistant indefinitely even to Eddore’s noxious atmosphereâ??agree with those of the Arisians upon this point. Immediately before the Coalescence began there was one, and only one, planetary solar system in the Second Galaxy; and, until the advent of Eddore, the Second Galaxy was entirely devoid of intelligent life.
Thus for millions upon untold millions of years the two races, each the sole intelligent life of a galaxy, perhaps of an entire space-time continuum, remained completely in ignorance of each other. Both were already ancient at the time of the Coalescence. The only other respect in which the two were similar, however, was in the possession of minds of power…



The Second Deluge

by Garrett Serviss

What is here set down is the fruit of long and careful research among disjointed records left by survivors of the terrible events described. The writer wishes frankly to say that, in some instances, he has followed the course which all historians are compelled to take by using his imagination to round out the picture. But he is able conscientiously to declare that in the substance of his narrative, as well as in every detail which is specifically described, he has followed faithfully the accounts of eyewitnesses, or of those who were in a position to know the truth of what they related…

These books are thrilling page-turners that will have you stocking your pantry for the apocalypse and wondering how well you really know your neighbors.



The Starbirth Assignment Part Two: Transmutes

by J M Johnson

An illegal mind-bending drug, inter-dimensional teleporters, levitation-flying, paranormal awareness and covert operations with British Special Forces – this is a normal day at the office for Lock Harford. His suit is camouflage and his briefcase is a Diemaco Special Forces Weapon.

Lock is one of only two teleporters in the world until a new brain-altering drug, Starbirth, emerges from South America. Starbirth creates an explosion of insane teleporter criminals who threaten pandemic infiltration and the stability of every country around the globe.

In this Part Two of the first book in the Starbirth series, Jackie Johnson develops a brutal mix of suspense, humanity, command and action with a subtle vein of humour that keeps the reader rooting for Harford’s team. These books are crafted to stay with the reader long after the story is finished, a rare ability in these days of bubble gum fiction, and Starbirth sits confidently alongside the best Sci-fi thrillers. Her ability to merge Sci-fi and Special Forces intrigue are second to none. In true Lock Harford style, she infiltrates this Man’s World with impressive success.

Author’s note: this book has been EDITED AND UPDATED IN 2016. Both Part One and Part Two are now re-combined as a single book in Starbirth Assignment SHIFTER, and Part Two as a separate book will be withdrawn in December 2016. It is being made available until then so that readers who have bought the first part and want to finish the story can do so.

Zephyr II

by Warren Hately

Editorial reviews

“It’s a skillfully written superhero fantasy resonant with emotion. Expect to feel your soul move as the swaggering narrator bears comic and often poignant witness to the vagaries of a life both bizarre and very like our own” –AA Attanasio, author of the Radix tetrad and The Dragon and the Unicorn series.

“I absolutely loved this book. The author is whip smart and dissects this genre like a surgeon” –Joe Gazzam, screenwriter, author of Uncaged.

“The book deconstructs the superhero in the most entertaining, cynical and interesting ways” –Michael Ivan Lowell, The Suns of Liberty series.

Zephyr is an ongoing serial that has been favorably compared to Watchmen and similar classics. Like the comic books to which it owes a debt, Zephyr is episodic with an open narrative.

It’s 2013 on the eastern seaboard of the United States. The place is Atlantic City: a sweeping longitudinal metropolis rebuilt following widespread devastation in 1984. Superhumans are not only real, they’re human. All too human, as Nietzsche would say.

Zephyr is an alt.superhero adventure influenced by postliterary writing and Sturgeon’s law. The style is cynical, cinematic and systematically against standard expectations of the genre. Imagine if Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho was about costumed vigilantes rather than stockbrokers and you have half the idea.

Zephyr tells the story of a major, if somewhat jaded superhero in an alternate universe where New York City has been abandoned and the Beatles were a superhero team. Zephyr is a regular guy, but with powers, and it’s easy to wonder if his life might have been better without them as supervillains and other problems that only superhumans can deal with derail his efforts handling life.

In Volume 2, Zephyr delves deeper into the mystery of his parentage as his secret life starts to unravel just as he is getting his New Sentinels hero group off the ground. His adventures take him from the sprawling megalopolis of Atlantic City to rural France, parallel Earths and beyond as he searches for his father, the apocalyptic Doomsday Man John Lennon from the defunct superhero group The Beatles.



The Impossibles

by Randall Garrett

The sidewalk was as soft as a good bed. Malone lay curled on it, thinking about nothing at all. He was drifting off into a wonderful dream, and he didn’t want to interrupt it. There was this girl, a beautiful girl, more wonderful than anything he had ever imagined, with big blue eyes and long blonde hair and a figure that made the average pin-up girl look like a man. And she had her soft white hand on his arm, and she was looking, up at him with trust and devotion and even adoration in her eyes, and her voice was the softest possible whisper of innocence and promise.
“I’d love to go up to your apartment with you, Mr. Malone,” she said.
Malone smiled back at her, gently but with complete confidence. “Call me Ken,” he said, noticing that he was seven feet tall and superbly muscled. He put his free hand on the girl’s warm, soft shoulder and she wriggled with delight.
“All rightâ??Ken,” she said. “You know, I’ve never met anyone like you before. I mean, you’re so wonderful and everything.”
Malone chuckled modestly, realizing, in passing, how full and rich his voice had become. He felt a weight pressing over his heart, and knew that it was his wallet, stuffed to bursting with thousand-dollar bills.
But was this a time to think of money?
No, Malone told himself. This was the time for adventure, for romance, for love. He looked down at the girl and put his arm around her waist. She snuggled closer…

When an experimental new diet pill goes horribly awry, a disparate group must work together to try to stop the zombie apocalypse from destroying the world as we know it.

As if zombies weren’t bad enough, things get more complicated when one of their number starts to go a little crazy and they have to worry about the potential psycho-killer in their midst.
