Halfway across the planet, Janet Pilgrim and the Volunteer Space Rescue Service struggle to do something about the pirate menace on the spaceways between Earth and Mars.
But the problems both face are much bigger than pirates and bar fights. When a leader of Earth’s Manifest Destiny movement makes an appearance on Mars, events begin to roll to a climax that will hold the fate of the planet in the balance.
C.E. Martin: Spectral Ops An army of angry spirits takes over an idyllic village in Eastern France, murdering all within it and anyone sent to investigate. When conventional forces fail, a special unit of supernatural soldiers is sent in to assess the situation and find a way to defeat an enemy that is already dead. Outnumbered, outmatched, and fighting for their immortal lives, the men and women of Detachment 1039 must join forces with a handful of mortal survivors and prevent spectral invaders from unleashing Hell on Earth…
Clarence ‘ZZ Claybourne’ Young: The Brothers Jetstream: Leviathan The Brothers Jetstream: Leviathan is a head-first, ramming-speed, no-holds-barred adventure that might have come about by crossing Buckaroo Banzai with Blade. Brothers Milo and Ramses Jetstream are mystical warriors in a sideways Earth that includes Atlantis, talking whales, vampires, and angels. In the hands of another writer this might be a mess, but Zig Zag Claybourne has a lovely warm voice, a light touch, an unerring instinct for avoiding expected plot developments, and a gift for delivering laughs on every page. Get it. It over-delivers the fun. — Kelly Robson, author of The Waters of Versailles
“This is a truly original writer. He sounds like no one else, plays by no rules, and creates wildly entertaining books that create an indelible stamp on the mind.” — Dave Eggers, author of You Shall Know Our Velocity
