The Dog

by Amy Cross

There will be many who witness the end of human civilization.

But few who live beyond the first day.

When Jon takes his dog Harry to a remote cabin for the week, he just wants to get away from the rest of the world. And then one morning, after finding that his phone is dead, Jon looks at the city in the distance and realizes that something seems very wrong.

All the power has gone out. At night, the city is completely dark. There are no planes in the sky, and when Jon drives to the nearest gas station, he finds a desolate and bloody scene. He refuses to believe that something truly awful has happened, however, until he spots a figure stumbling through the forest, heading ever closer.

Soon Jon is facing a desperate fight for survival. While he and his dog have been up at the cabin, the whole world has been struck by a huge, global catastrophe that has left billions dead. Can Jon and his dog survive, or are they doomed to suffer the same fate?

The Dog is a novel about the end of the world, told through the eyes of a dog who finds himself stuck at a remote cabin with only his owner for company.



Regan’s Reach

by Mark G Brewer

Review By Heinz Zwack on June 10, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
With the Renaissance of space opera that indie publishing and e-books brought about this is refreshingly different. It is space fiction with lots of action and lots of exotic technology – but not the usual rehash of space battles and Galactic empires.

In almost 60 years of reading science fiction – probably 2000 or 3000 books and at least as many stories in the Golden age of SF magazines – I haven’t found a character like Ham very often. He certainly beats “Hal” of 2001 hands-down.

Regan’s Reach, the story.

Young Kiwi tech entrepreneur, Regan Stein, has just sold ten percent of her company for a massive price. The buyer, aerospace and defence giant USDynamics wants a share of Arteis, her new cyber defence system. Plus they’ve picked out Regan as a fresh creative genius and want in on whatever she has planned next.

Washed out from negotiations and cash rich Regan decides to take a long planned break and to disappear for six months and freshen up her thinking. Tramping off track, at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, she accepts a Satphone call for help. Doing the right thing finds her the rescuer of a comatose man, human but yet strangely alien. Within hours her life has changed.

While in orbit at the mercy of a quirky artificial intelligence and acting as nursemaid to the injured alien she finds out traitorous moves have been made against her company by foreign business powers. Unable to do anything about it in her present situation she embarks on the journey of a lifetime, assisting the AI to return the man while leaving her trusted team to deal with the attack at home.

The two month interstellar journey sees a developing relationship with the AI and a formidable partnership established. They arrive at their destination in the midst of political unrest.

At home her team find themselves collateral damage in a corporate war full of intrigue, murky politics, and betrayal.

Will she survive the trip across the galaxy? How will her friends deal with the threats? Will her company survive the attack? And who would want to be in Regan Stein’s sights if she returns at all?

This is classic science fiction leading in to a series that includes technology, androids, interstellar travel, action, politics and mystery. The series tracks sixteen years in the life of the remarkable Regan Stein and her friends. It will entertain you, challenge you and provoke your thinking on everything from the nature of the human heart to the nature of evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars: A sorely needed new heroine
Review by M Travison August 19, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

I think this was a terrific beginning to a new series but more importantly a new heroine for the scifi genre. It’s also refreshing to read an intelligent scifi novel without galactic space battles or alien earth invasions. Regan is by no means a genius but she’s ambitious, focused, assertive and especially knows how to assemble a good team to make her dreams reality.

FLY ON THE WALL: The Time Travelling Gameshow

by Laurence Ward

What if you could travel back in time, knowing what you know, and what’s to come?

On a parallel branch in time, an exact copy, of everything, up to the moment you arrive, made just for you, temporary. Your chance to change the future in any way you like.

Would you do it? Would you take the risk and make the change?

FLY ON THE WALL is a game show.

A game show that travels in time.

First, to Ireland in 1169.

Two teams of contestants are transported to twelfth century Ireland to compete in a game show; one that’s played in history.

Two armies compete in the forests for the land, the lives and the future of Ireland.

The invaders, led by a warrior called Strongbow, are Norman knights, armoured cavalry, archers and mercenaries and they battle the Irish, led by High King Rory O’Connor, aligned with the ferocious Vikings and Berserkers from Dublin and the Isles.

While Henry II waits; just across the water.

While some of the รข??Fly on the Wall’ media executives wait; contemplating more than their bonuses.

While the Military, who developed the time-travel technology, fume at its use for civilian entertainment.

And TITAS plots the show’s downfall.

To win, the teams must complete a series of challenges and return from the past.

But they cannot be there and have no impact.

Their presence changes history.



Elite

by Joseph C. Anthony

Daniel Hart stood, staring at himself in the mirror. He had experienced a
complete physical transformation in a remarkably short period of time. Just three
weeks ago no one would have looked twice at someone like Daniel, but a
revolutionary procedure had helped to transform him into something spectacular.
He was now beyond human, he was better.

He had once believed that the day Jordan moved to Chicago would be the
greatest of his life, but it had proven otherwise. Daniel could not compete with
Gordon Demers, one of Chicago’s wealthiest and most powerful up-and-comers.
Demers had been the true reason for Jordan’s relocation, and all of his money and
influence brought with it a physical attraction that Jordan could not resist – even if it
meant breaking Daniel’s heart.

Daniel had soon after lost his job, and with it his ability to remain in Chicago.
He knew then that he had no choice but to accept the offer given to him by an
ex-CIA agent and his eccentric partner. The experimental brain surgery he had to
undergo held incredible risk – yes, but it had been his only option.

The operation had been a success. Daniel was now capable of controlling
every single function in his entire body, even those previously out of reach from his
conscious mind. It was time for him to put Jordan aside. He was now working for the
most elite personal security force on the planet, and would soon be hired to protect
high profile individuals from the world’s deadliest assassins.

First he would need to establish himself. He needed to train to become the
top ranked agent at Elite Personal Security Force and prove himself to be the
superior being the revolutionary procedure had turned him into. Anything less would
be considered failure.

The first of a series, this is only the beginning of Daniel’s story…

The OAM Virus. REVISED edition: Armageddon.

by JR Agrel Smith

Intro. The Book of Revelation in the Bible is a difficult read at the best of times, and it becomes frightening in the section that deals with the last days, when Satan rules and turns against all Christians, and if understood then demonic powers are used and the return of the fallen, the giants of old, as mentioned in the beginning of the Bible in the book of Genesis.

My challenge was to make this presented in such a way that our younger generation could relate to, and I chose the path of Space Research, alien life forms and a virus, subjects very much in the media today.

My book has been revised from my first attempt, I hope it is acceptable.

(Scripture references taken from The Life Study Bible.)

By John R. A. Smith.

NOTE: A work of fiction based upon the End Times as told in the Bible.)

Transhumanism combined with artificial genetic intelligence, and cyborg technology.

A sci-fi Christion story about Armageddon, and the last days, based upon hybrid trans-human cyborg warriors fighting for the survival of human life, and against the fallen and infected by the OAM virus, (Omega, Aura, Mars, Virus.)

Humans who mutate into animalistic behaviour, and try to destroy all Christian life.

My name is Anna in Russian, or Elisa in your native tongue, and I’m a Christian, Jesus is my Lord and Saviour, and I am told that this all started long before I was born, well technically yes I was born into your world, but not by conventional means, as I am the direct result of modern technology, and a kind of cross genetic hybrid breeding program.

We were created to be the so called saviours of the world, the new life blood of the human race, and which had been accidently devastated by an alien virus brought to earth by the then new space race, and in trying to see who could be the first private business to send a space ship to Mars, and to have it return safely.

Well they reached that goal with great pride and with massive publicity, and Virgin Space Research, was the first to successfully not only send one rocket to Mars, but to repeatedly have five successful return trips, and all reportedly without incident. Although now we know that statement to not be true, as in later years it was discovered upon the forth space flight, that it returned carrying some artefact’s discovered by the brave astronauts who had piloted that mission.

Please if you have the time, then watch this video in the full, and

Transhumanism combined with artificial genetic intelligence, and cyborg technology.
