Edge of The Apocalypse: Girl With A Broken Heart (The Edge of Time Book 1)

by A. R. Arias

After surviving a horrific IED explosion during combat in Afghanistan, Andrea Estrella had lost both arms. Now, after extensive reconstructive surgery and titanium alloy implants, as a cyborg, she can easily bench-press three-hundred pounds. But this story is not about Andrea’s mighty arms. It is about how an unlikely meeting turns into a friendship that is more intimate, and much more powerful than her new arms could ever embrace. Join Andrea as she traverses an American post-apocalyptic wasteland in the year 2157, that offers little hope against her chances of survival in more ways than one. Certainly, Andrea’s unexpected relationship, her purpose and her ultimate sacrifice, goes far beyond what her broken heart, and ours, can ever explain.

The Caravan

by Chris Morton

There was that fresh early morning feel outside the van. The wet grass scuffed under our ankles. I took her hand and led the way, even though I had no idea where we were going.

“You ever think about aliens?” she asked.

“Can’t say that I do.”

“If I were an alien, I’d land here â?¦ or somewhere like here.”

“Yeah, it is pretty beautiful,” I offered, scanning the expanse of farmers fields around us, deciding she most likely lived in the village so taking the path through the wood and not asking for directions just yet would be the cooler thing to do.

“But it’s not only that,” she continued, staring ahead as she talked.

“It’s not just the beauty. It’s everything. Everything!”

Letting go of my hand, she twirled theatrically, smiled, then grabbed my arms and stared right at me. She felt warm, sexy and wild: it was difficult to know if she were serious or making fun.



Saturnastra: Ahi: Book 2

by Teresita Blanco

PrefaceThis is the only book I have made an official second part. Originally, I wanted to make Ahi another stand alone book. I then decided to add more to his story. It is in the second half of the book that Ahi really takes to traveling. He ends up visiting two different continent. It is in this book that I showcase the scale of the world. During his journey, Ahi meets new people and dragons. I expand the draconic lore and I add a couple of new flavors into the mix. So, if you like dragons, this second half of the book is going to be more to your liking. I also go into details about the other types of creatures that call this world their home. Aside from dragons, I also added a couple of demons into the mix. As for the front cover, I painted it. It features the two personas of Ahi. There is a Ahi the tiny human looking fellow, and Ahi the giant Space Dragon. The thing he is standing on is the Titan moon. At the moment, it does not have its usual golden covering. The floor is the world of Saturn. I wanted to use the moon in order to serve as a scale for Ahi. I hope you find this fantasy story quite entertaining.IntroductionThis is the second part of the book Ahi. It is the only book of the series that is a true sequel. I am not the type of fellow that likes to write about the same person all the time. Once a character runs its course, I move onto the next fellow. This was not the case with my little Ahi. By now, you may already guess that Ahi does not think the way most people do. As the humans in my book put it, Ahi is a professional madman. I was not trying to make a point on that matter. Rather, I was showing draconic behavior being displayed by someone who looks human. If he was in his dragon form, his behavior would be pretty normal. Ahi was also not put in that world to make life for people easy. He is his own man and he will do whatever he pleases. It is a good thing for the humans that he has a good heart. He would never hurt anyone on purpose. Aside from acting like a dragon, Ahi eats like one. In his human form, it tends to throw people off. People tend to get freaked out when they see him eating a solid piece of lumber, or a silver crown. His human form only has the shape of a human. Inside, he is 100 percent draconic, as far as his metabolism is concerned. Ahi does end up having something of a romantic interest. Still, his idea of romance is not what most people think. It will become obvious when you get to that point. Since Ahi will get married in this book, his family makes a brief cameo for the wedding. More stuff happens, and there is even a couple of one sided battles if you are into violence. Mainly, the book is just a strange tale as far as the fantasy genre is concerned. Stay tune for the thrilling conclusion of Ahi’s adventures in the world of Saturnastra.

The Milky Way’s Finest: Nexus Ranger Tales

by daniel gower

It is generally agreed upon now that the future is going to be a real wild place: people falling through black holes into embarrassing time warps, genetically superior mutants causing all sorts of mayhem, and brilliant sneaky computers finally taking over and contemplating our extinction. So we’re going to need someone to keep it from getting too wild. Those someones are the Nexus Rangers. They are an elite interstellar police force and one of the most famous and formidable is Capt. Epsilon Eridani, who is someone you want on your side but never actually want to meet. For though she’s beautiful and brave, she’s also astonishingly arrogant. When she says it’s her universe and you just live in it, she’s not entirely kidding. Just ask her timid and much tormented second-in-command, Lt. Isadore Radiger, a nice guy who really just wants to have a good time. More like her is the other member of her squad, Private Quorveg, a fearsome alien from Chthonia, the Black Hell Planet, who is often more like part of the problem than part of the solution, despite his desire to be more civilized than others of his macabre kind. Then there’s their android Ganymede, an aging and run-down metal menial whom Epsilon doesn’t even treat as a someone. And someone who doesn’t treat anyone like a someone is their artificial intelligence Myra, who runs their station in the Desolation Zone and looks forward to the day when beings of silicon will replace beings of carbon. Not by wiping them out, but simply by intimidating them into losing their will to live. Together they form the Desolation Squad, posted on the frontier of the Nexus near the edge of the galaxy, defending it from all manner of insidious threats and diabolical villains. In this collection of their adventures they take on some of their toughest and weirdest cases, such as a planet where instead of competing all of nature cooperates–to destroy inadvertent intruders; a particularly unruly cosmic child; a powerful horde of rapidly multiplying synthetic minds who find Sylvia Plath to be more than they can handle; a crime caper in the past involving a hard-boiled detective, monstrosities from another dimension, and King Kong; vast, formless, malevolent entities who start canceling physical law, and the only device which can stop them is in the hands of an argumentative and exceedingly self-absorbed being; a desperate fight for survival when a high price is put on Epsilon’s head and all manner of contract killers come after her, culminating in a battle in a created hell. These are just a few of the astounding, thrilling, shocking, action-packed, laugh riot escapades of our beleaguered heroes. They’re the Milky Way’s finest. Even when they’re at their worst.

Survival

by Daniel Powell

It’s 2209 and the hour has grown late for the human race.

Famine and disease have drastically compounded the misery of a warming planet.

With many billions scrambling after the Earth’s depleted resources, a multinational agency known as The Authority has instituted a population-control policy known simply as Labor.

In an effort to stem the tides of procreation and instill a measure of gender equality in the birthing process, men must survive a deadly twenty-four-hour gauntlet of chaos and destruction in order to earn the privilege to become fathers.

The Authority regulates every aspect of the birthing process, from ensuring that male subjects abstain from alcohol and prescription drugs to delivering each man a quota of sleepless nights.

Such is the case for Bryan Norton, whose wife’s due date has just fallen into testing range. Very soon, they will experience the joy of the birth of their son.

Norton has endured the year-long process of qualifying for Labor. He has sacrificed his health and comfort for the chance to become a father.

But the greatest test still lies ahead, and the chances are slim that he’ll ever hold his son in his arms.

Daniel Powell’s new dystopic novelette “Survival” poses an enduring human question: How far would you go to be with your family?

Drawing upon influences as diverse as Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game,” Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron” and Stephen King’s The Running Man, “Survival” is a chilling narrative on the nature of parenthood in turbulent times.
