Raiders of the Seventh Planet

by Eric M. Heideman

“UNPUTDOWNABLE!”
â??Terran Publishers

“BRILLIANT, ECCENTRIC, DARKLY SATIRICAL AND DOWNRIGHT WEIRD!”
â??The Santiago Weekly

“UP URANUS…SORRY, I MEAN RAIDERS OF THE SEVENTH PLANET IS AN IRRESISTIBLE ROMP THROUGH SPACEâ?¦”
â??Publishers Daily

Barbarian hordes! Noble savages! Conflicting chosen ones! Sub-literate subordinates! All are present in these rip-roaring, wild, galaxy-hopping adventures of the crew of A Terran Starship.

A Terran Starship attempts to bring good old-fashioned FREEDOM to Uranus and fails! Instead, hard pounding action slams them into the darkest depths of Uranus as a power struggle unfolds with awkwardly hilarious results, entangling them in a vast, intergalactic struggle for dominance.

“STILL MORE PLAUSIBLE THAN STAR TREK”
â??Raves Fake Reviews Weakly.

“CONTRARY TO SOME CLASSICISTS, MODERN SCIENCE FICTION CRITICS DO NOT NECESSARILY VIEW THE SATIRICAL STREAK OF THE STORY AS CONFLICTING WITH MODERN NOTIONS OF SCIENCE FICTION.”
â??Oxford & Cambridge Foundation for Literature

Zozo: Zero one zero one

by Mark Phillips

Nature unleashes a series of disasters: solar flares, volcanic eruptions and an ice age. The world’s population is decimated, leaving just pockets of survivors. Some of them establish themselves around heat sources, a nuclear station and a hot spring in this story. A human bottleneck results, leaving scarcely two million people left to reassert the human presence on this planet.
Tarryn is a superstar and rock singer with an angelic voice and a fiercely principled value system. She and her brothers are in the rock band “Sonic Dust”. As the world reels from these disasters of epic proportions, she is stricken with a brain disease that impacts about one in seven billion people. Lynton, a retired and renegade scientist specialising in brain cell simulation, has a solution. Tarryn undergoes a cerebral, electronic infusion which completely cures her. It also endows her with some other special abilities. She jokes about being part android but then â?¦ well, you’ll see.
Some of the “established order” or authorities of the new world of survivors, see a clean slate opportunity for moral regeneration and set about making this happen by deploying cyber electronics selectively to the world’s populace. Tarryn is a strong proponent of this approach, but something does not go quite as planned.
The book gives an interesting analysis of a bottlenecked human species (they don’t actually look like that) starting afresh but trying to learn from the lessons of the past. This is a post-apocalyptic survival story which may have us introspecting about the errors of our old world ways. There are no aliens, no space travel and not even any magic in this book. It is Earth-based, and the science is good, honest fiction.
You do have to come to terms, however, with the author’s quirky sense of humour.

Back page:

Nobody has said this yet but maybe they soon will:
The Best Science Fiction Novel of the century.

The Maily Day would probably, if given the opportunity, say:
Mark Phillips takes the world to near extinction in a masterpiece of Earth-based science fiction of the most gripping kind.

Planet Lazy (Funny Sci Fi)

by Ryan Davis

What is Planet Lazy? None of the scientists have heard of it, and there’s no record of it ever existing. Yet people swear that they’ve been there. One day, they vanished from Earth and wound up in a place where everything was free, and they didn’t have to, you know, do anything.

Join the fat, socially awkward, will-probably-die-a-virgin Karturian as he navigates our strange universe of starving giants, nit-picky zombies, talking cats, a whole planet of women who have never seen a man before, and much much more on his voyage to the mythical Planet Lazy.

– What is the answer to 7 + 7 ÷ 7 + 7 x 7 – 7 = ?
– How do you hide cigarette smoke from your parents?
– Does Cheese Whiz go better with pancakes or waffles?
– What are cats really thinking?
– How do you become the richest being in the universe by doing half of the work most people do and utilizing Facebook likes?
– What do you do if you’re out in space and really have to use the bathroom?

…just a few of life’s more pertinent questions that Karturian hopes to answer on his journey.

Hilarious, surreal, unpredictable, fun, and strangely moving at times, this social satire is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Kilgore Trout and Venus on the Half-Shell. Planet Lazy throws modern-day issues and news topics into a comedic food processor and spits them out into a scrumptious sci-fi pâté. The topics include eating disorders, low birthrate, cell cryopreservation, patriarchal and matriarchal societies, intercultural relationships, global warming, unethical technological and medical advancements, volunteering in impoverished nations, free-range farming, the robot apocalypse, lazy entrepreneurship, and everyone’s obsession with cats!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT PLANET LAZY:

“Charming, cringeworthy…A quirky and unique voice.”

“…the perfect balance between imagination and wit.”

“…the anarchy…the hilarity…time well-spent…”

“…a laugh-out-loud satire on the intellectual drain of today’s world.”

“A very talented writer…fascinating story…”

“…moving, surprising, lovely…fun…an amazing book…”

“Funny…weird…Douglas Adams and Kurt Vonnegut fans will love this…”

“…reminds me of The Sneetches…” –K. McGee, mystery and crime author

by Eddie Patin

William Rivers is dead one way or another.

If the zombies don’t kill him, his worsening pneumonia will.

For the last few months, ever since everything went to hell, William has been surviving however he can in a small Colorado mountain town. Unable to get home, he’s been living on the roof of a gas station at the edge of town with a Ukrainian cook named Anton. But as William’s cough worsens and his lungs fill with inevitable death, the young man is faced with the deadly prospect of going into town and braving the zombie horde to find some antibiotics from the pharmacy there. When he and Anton encounter new terrifying zombies that they haven’t seen before, will the two of them be able to find the antibiotics William needs and get back to their gas station sanctuary alive? Can William cure his malady?

Are you a fan of cosmic horror and dark fantasy / sci-fi? Love the Mist and Cabin in the Woods? Lovecraft? Doom? Stranger Things? EMP and Prepper Survival? This story is full of terror, suspense, and bad language. If you can dig it, strap in for a ride to Hell!

Love Boat: The Instigation of Inherent Insanity

by Ingo Potsch

“Love Boat – The Instigation of Inherent Insanity” is an amazing Science Fiction novel including a plethora of exiting elements which together form an entraining story which carries the reader along into an astounding universe of stunning adventures. The novel includes all the classical elements of Science Fiction, like starships, hyperspace, different alien species, and exo-planets. Beyond that, the story includes a murder mystery, a gentle and tender yet troubled romance, with the unfortunate lovers being subjected to contrarian outside pressures, big-power politics, military strategy, the machinations of galactic secret services, a sufficient amount of technology to fulfill the desires of fans of â??hard sci-fi’, the occasional dose of (dark) humor, a bit of a Robinsonade, and much insight into the behavior of humans under extreme distress. The characters have been crafted with skill and determination to make them life-like, desisting from the temptation to create superheroes while yet having them strong enough to let their successes appear credible. There is some good deal of outer action, while much of what is going on in the novel is centered around the characters, their interests and desires, their compulsions and obligations, their sense of duty and their conflicting instincts. Carefully crafted dialogues make up a good share of the book and let the reader experience the characters’ thoughts via their own words.
