The Shell Collector (The Max Rogan Novels Book 1)

by John Cosper

Collections may seem like an odd occupation for a special forces veteran, but there’s nothing normal about Max Rogan’s job. While most collection agents are after cars and tech toys, Max’s quarry is a little higher end: human shells, created and cloned in a genetics lab for the purposes of organ transplants.

Max never gave a second’s thought to the ethical questions surrounding his employer’s activities. But when Max finds himself under suspicion after a shell he retrieves leads a daring escape, his only choice is to go undercover and bring the anti-cloning operation down.

Max’s journey brings him face to face with the shells who want nothing more than the chance to live as humans, and Max soon finds himself wondering if they really are a collection of organs and tissues – or real, flesh and blood humans?

A fast paced page turner filled with twists and turns, The Shell Collector balances science fiction action with questions about human cloning, genetic engineering, and the brave new world looming on our horizon!

The Mystery of the Semi-Detached

by Edith Nesbit

” He was waiting for her, he had been waiting an hour and a half in a dusty suburban lane, with a row of big elms on one side and some eligible building sites on the other-and far away to the south-west the twinkling yellow lights of the Crystal Palace. It was not quite like a country lane, for it had a pavement and lamp-posts, but it was not a bad place for a meeting all the same: and farther up, towards the cemetery, it was really quite rural, and almost pretty, especially in twilight But twilight had long deepened into the night, and still he waited. He loved her, and he was engaged to be married to her, with the complete disapproval of every reasonable person who had been consulted. And this half-clandestine meeting was tonight to take the place of the grudgingly sanctioned weekly interview-because a certain rich uncle was visiting at her house, and her mother was not the woman to acknowledge to a moneyed uncle, who might “go off” any day, a match so deeply ineligible as hers with him. “
