Haladras (Haladras Trilogy Book 1)

by Michael M. Farnsworth

A desert planet. A dangerous secret.

When Skylar’s enigmatic uncle warns him to stay away from the mysterious winged insects that have been sighted on other planets, he thinks little of it; no one has seen the insects on their own planet of Haladras. His uncle knows more than he’s telling, though. The creatures are not insects, but machines. And they’re hunting for Skylar. Only after Skylar narrowly escapes capture and flees Haladras with his uncle does he learn the whole truth. What his uncle reveals will shatter Skylar’s world. Torn from the girl he loves and thrust into the center of a conflict that will consume the empire, Skylar must fight for all he cares for, even as he struggles to know who he can trust.

Life Over Time: The Mission (Dark Voyagers Book 1)

by Katya Walter

Life Over Time by Katya Walter

Is this Sci-Fi? Or Psi-Phi? Or more?

This is Volume 1 of the new Sci-Fi/Psi-Phy series of the DARK VOYAGERS. Is this science fiction? Some say so. But it’s also an allegory. Could it even be a real experience?

Science, mystery, and mysticism merge in this stunning new account of life, death, and deep-see diving – remote viewing to travel the cosmos and see the foundation of reality.

Western science explores cosmology. Ancient China’s I Ching follows the Tao. They merge in a master code that generates our holographic universe. The master code also templated our own minor variant, the genetic code.

Your guide? The lichen-like creatures who live on a boulder orbiting a dying red sun. They learn the hard way how vital air, water, and food are for survival. Now dead, yet they travel mentally in 3D time in this Double Bubble Universe to meet all the diverse mini-minds on the planets, including our own.

As wise ghosts, they inhabit that other bubble, a reversing mirror-twin with 3D time and an arrow of space – plus science’s “lost” pole of gravity and the Big Bang’s “lost” antimatter, converted now by spatial pressure into tachyonic energy – powering up a huge, unified mind spread throughout all 3D time!

You’ll even meet Magenta Majestica! This short book brings philosophy, humor, and joie de vivre in a light and lively tone to dark and deep mysteries.

The Day of the Universal Holos

by B. Campbell

Young Dalliance is a woman of humanity’s last generation. Her life is filled with the consequences of a malfunctioned genetic engineering that left much of the population dead or malformed and took away her mother’s wellness. Its a life filled with beloved, holographic masks that hide imperfections to make people equal and puppeteers that can mind control people over a neural network. An existence also containing such sights as the lovely and custom-made chimera-brides whom offer companionship to the unloved. A place where Dalliance, due to being in an impoverished state, feels she must rent out her capable womb and sell her unusually-healthy body parts to alleviate financial concerns and to help create a new generation of healthy children. A world where she despairingly-learns that perhaps not all things should be for sale.



Machine City Knights

by Erin Bisson

Like the phoenix, Elysium was born from ashes-the flames of a cataclysm that devoured the entire world. Now the shining megalopolis towers above the blasted ruins of the barrenlands, its sleekly shining towers and glittering arcologies a testament to recovery and rebirth for humans and mechanicals, while high above soars the solid-light trunk of Yggdrasil, data-Tree of the Aidoneus System, maintaining safety and security for all.

But a blight is spreading through the Machine City. Gaping dimensional maws that reveal a chaotic abyss-the Bleeds-shred the air without warning, disgorging marauding Phages that slaughter and capture Elysium’s citizens, never to be seen again. And, as the Bleed frequency spirals, Aidoneus grows more erraticâ?¦and, perhaps, aware.

The source of the Bleeds must be found-before Elysium becomes ground zero for a second cataclysm.
