Dark Nights

by Christopher A. Gray

“Innovative and well-paced… part scientific exploration, part action, part
political intrigue, the combined result is a page-turner.”

– Publishers Weekly

The thinking quantum computer believed it knew best how to save humanity… even if doing so meant destroying half the population.

Astrophysicist Doug Lockwood has made the discovery of a lifetime: another planet has appeared in our solar system, in orbit opposite that of Earth. Its sudden appearance is unexplained, but the danger presented by the alternate Earth is real, kicking off a chain of events that will carry Lockwood into the grasp of a formidable artificial intelligence bent on accomplishing its goal at any cost. With the survival of our Earth at stake and time running out, Lockwood and his team must find a way to counter this unprecedented threat before the powerful new enemy completes its plan. Two civilizations are pitted against each other in a desperate struggle for survival that may lead to Armageddon for both worlds.

Marilyn, My Marilyn

by Art Johnson

It’s the summer of ’62, and twenty-five-year-old journalist Rory Long receives a phone call at quitting time: it’s Marilyn Monroe. She wants to personally compliment him on a review he wrote of the new collected works of poet Carl Sandburg.

She then enlists the cub reporter to tell her story; she doesn’t want to be remembered as a joke. When they meet, Rory is captivated by her knowledge of classical music, art and literature. As their relationship intensifies, Rory experiences a coming-of-age inspired by this side of Marilyn few know, and at the same time, Marilyn is influenced by Rory to begin reassessing her own life.

But when Rory’s boss assigns him to write an article on the unsolved murder of the Black Dahlia, paranoia and tension mount. File papers go missing, then mysteriously return. An unknown covert organization watches Marilyn Monroe’s every move, thinking she may hold a clue to the Dahlia case. And just when Rory can feel he’s getting closer to the truth, J. Edgar Hoover himself intervenes to request that Rory be reassigned. Rapid changes are about to unfold in the land of the free, and they may be more costly than even Rory can surmise.

In Art Johnson’s latest novel, he continues his style of combining historical fact with fiction to offer the reader a steady stream of drama, tension and humor. Marilyn, My Marilyn reveals fresh insight into the most iconic woman of modern times, not as a biography, but with a view of a nation which often buries the truth with its dead.

10000 Sallys

by Rick McConnell

Imagine waking up in a hospital room, you can barely move. No one comes when you call. The only other person present is a little boy, who is, surprisingly, more help than you would expect. What would you do?

This is the exact situation Sally finds herself in. Almost immediately she discovers that nothing is what she thinks it is. Not the boy, not the hospital, maybe not even herself. She is in deep trouble and the consequences will be dire if she can’t find a way out.

She is a fighter, though, and just doesn’t quit. She starts as the lowest of the low and has to claw her way up in spite of being tangled in a shifting web of schemes and plots. She has to do her best, and maybe her best is pretty good.

As Sally uncovers more about her situation, she finds that she has to be smart and tough, and that in this place she needs to depend on her friends, who are using her as much as she is using them.

This book contains themes concerning life, death, and body functions, light swearing, minimal nakedness, and should be suitable for most.
