Daemon Rising – Book One: Ramfiram & Book Two: DoomBringer

by John William

Imlod Nir is a young man caught up in a resurging conflict between primordial forces. Apprenticed to his sisterâ??the self-styled Queen of Earthâ??in the dark art of necromancy, he hunts the wilds beyond the city of Ramfiram for those who would deny her rule. But with each passing day he becomes less sure of his role and more unable to cope with his past deeds. Is he destined to play the pawn in his sister’s game until the end, or does fate have something else in store?

Dragan Saedus is a bastard prince who cares nothing for thrones, desiring only glorious battle. As a peerless warrior and famed slayer of supernatural foes, he laughs at danger and answers to no one except his mother: a fanatical witch plotting to crush the West beneath her heel. Yet as the cost of retaining his dreadful power grows steeper than ever before, the DoomBringer has a decision to make. Will he stay on the path that shaped him into a living legend, or might he be drawn to another calling?

John the Minstrel: The mysterious tale of the magical lute.

by Oliver J. Tooley

Warning – Contains strong language, mild violence, and references to drugs and sexual activity. 

John is a working rock musician with mental health issues, who survives on a diet of coffee, cigarettes, beer, and cheap cereal. His flat looks permanently as though it has been burgled and he takes better care of his cat, Asteroth, than he does himself.
John takes his lyrical inspiration from a romanticised fantasy medieval world of maidens and magic, but when he spends his rent money on an ancient antique lute he finds himself up close to a world that previously only existed in his imagination.

A light-hearted and none too serious time-slip (universe-slip) romp with an emphasis on coarse humour rather than education or morality. In short, this book makes no pretence at being literature. It should provide some amusement though. 

Trigger warnings, this story also contains insults about bass players, drummers, guitarists, accountants, folk music, and historical reenactors.
These insults do not necessarily reflect the views of the author, although anybody who sings ‘hey-nonny-nonny’ within earshot of the author is likely to earn a rebuke.

This book was begun as a NaNoWriMo project last year and I swore it was only intended as a joke. I stopped writing it when I realised that there was not enough plot for a 50k novel. I’m not saying it isn’t any good, because it has merit, but it’s never going to be up for a Pulitzer prize.
This book is most ideally suited to adults (or older children with liberal parents) with a puerile sense of humour. Those who don’t mind a lot of swearing and references to drug taking etc.  
I think it will probably appeal to people who, like me, have been in working rock bands, and experienced the friction, camaraderie, and stress involved.
It might also appeal to anyone who likes history but doesn’t want to get too bogged down in petty details like which precise century the story is set in, or the fact that women’s clothes were so complicated that any ideas of romping in the hay are laughable at best.
It won’t appeal to anyone who is offended by the ‘F’ word, or any of the ‘B’ words or ‘S’ words. I stopped short of using the ‘C’ word though.

White Rabbit Society Part One

by Brendan Detzner

Andrew is fifteen years old. He’s been sent to stay with his grandmother for the summer while his parents finish their divorce, but the summer’s up and he’s still stuck up in Wisconsin. And his best and only friend is a monster.

Shadow lives under a gazebo in the park. She has a body made of spare parts, she seems to be omnipotent, and she likes to play chess. Andrew doesn’t tell anybody about Shadow. Nobody listens to him anyway.

Andrew’s Uncle Paul comes to town. Andrew didn’t know he had an Uncle Paul. Paul knows about Shadow. Paul knows lots of things. Some of them are things he shouldn’t know; some of them are things no one should know. And he’s interested in teaching.

Unfortunately, Paul isn’t stopping by just to say hello. He’s being pursued, by people interested in his secrets. People interested in Shadow. And soon, people interested in Andrew.

“If you’re into urban paranormal/magic realism stories a la Dresden Files, but with a stronger human touch, I wholeheartedly recommend you pick up White Rabbit Society by Brendan Detzner.”

Aleahan Sisterhood: Adventures in a Strange Land (Alice Longstreet and the Land Between Time)

by Robert R. Haverford

Alice Longstreet, a young woman in college, suddenly finds herself in another universe, one with magic, dwarves, and elves. She finds she is called a “Wayfarer”, in this world, Aleaha. She finds she must call on skills she brings from home, her training as an engineer, her strength as a young woman, and above all, her ability as a leader.

Her travels from the country of Carlsea on Aleaha to other lands with her circle of friends will quickly take up the nine months she must remain there before she can return home. She ponders how she got here:

Alice Longstreet lay for a moment staring at the black sky, looking at the strange, unfamiliar pattern of stars, and listening to the sound of the waves on the beach, one of the two moons was up tonight. One of her new friends was standing watch as she and the others tried to sleep, “How on Earth… no wait, I’m not on Earth, am I? OK how on Aleaha are we going to get back home with that dragon flying around? I just hope we don’t see it again,” she thought to herself. Dragons were something Alice had never seen on Earth, that was for sure. She was used to solving problems, engineering problems, science problems, math problems, but how to deal with a dragon was out of her experience. Being a mechanical engineering student sure had come in handy three times on this trip, once in building a bridge, and the second in building a raft. It had also come in at a critical moment to save one of her friend’s lives, and Alice still didn’t really know how she had managed to do what she had done as fast as she had done it.
She, like the rest of her friends, was exhausted from the day’s trip. Sleeping on the ground on a simple, hand woven bed roll wearing chain mail might have been difficult in most situations, but Alice knew she wouldn’t have trouble sleeping once she put the thoughts of home out of her head and relaxed. This was a strange place indeed, with knights, armor, magic, elves, dwarves and dragons, Aleaha, as the natives called it, was closer to the Middle Ages than modern times. “How did I get here?” Well, she knew that, if having stepped through what should have been a solid wall like it was a door into another universe could be believed. “No… Why did I get here?” That was another question entirely and one Alice couldn’t answer, having stepped into another dimension entirely, with the promise that she could go back, in due time. There were many others here in the same situation, and the people of Aleaha called them “Wayfarers”, and treated them with very high regard. Most of her fellow Wayfarers seamed very human, with some variations, like their skin, ears, or eyes.
“Alice, try to get some sleep,” came some advice from the woman standing watch. It was Allegra, a person who was almost as much an alligator as she was human. Alice no longer considered that unusual.
“Good advice. I wish I had half your wisdom, Allegra.”
“I wish my mind worked half as fast as yours does, Alice, or that I had half your pluck, but, sleep.”
Alice took the advice. She turned and drifted off to sleep, she would have to stand watch later, and her last thoughts were of how they were going to get back home safely.
Her adventures so far had taken all of her training, quick thinking, and mettle she had. She knew how she had gotten here, but the answer to her second question we will have to find out along with her.

Tales of Wonder

by Ricardo Victoria

Science Fantasy is the collision of science fiction and fantasy – where the impossible and the improbable come together. This is a universe of spaceships and sorcery, of mechanics and magic, where zeppelins soar through the ether and conjurers stalk dark tunnels with a ball of light in their fist. So cut loose, let slip the mooring ropes on your imagination, and join these nine authors as they set course for the horizon – and beyond.

Nine tales of science. Nine tales of fantasy. Nine tales to make you wonder.

Alice: Queen of Hearts: An Alice in Wonderland Novel (Lost in Wonderland Book 1)

by Hayley Paige

Just one moment, as the leaves turned from green to red and the breeze carried on its back the cool embrace of Autumn, set in motion a life-changing spiralling effectâ?¦

As Alice is drawn down the path paved for her by Redâ??Lord Overseer, Wonderland’s King of Heartsâ??her world begins to twist and change. The tranquillity of a simple life is left behind as she chooses to fall; a descent that seems never-ending but which takes her that little bit closer to the only real love she has ever knownâ??and the life she has dared to dream.

But in Wonderland, nothing is as it seems.

As the earth tilts on its axis and Alice’s perspective becomes distorted and dizzying, she must face sacrificing everything she has ever known and face the Queen of Hearts with one objective: dethrone her. If she succeeds, the King of Hearts awaits. But if she fails, Alice could find herself lost in a world where everything is nonsense.
