Just Released: “Panic! Horror In Space #2”


In April 2017 I announced a new series – “Panic! Horror In Space” and the availability of the first volume in that series which featured two related short stores: “Mercury Rising” and “Mercury Resurgent”.

The second volume has just been released, and features two more related short stories entitled “Dead Center” and “Through A Dark Glassy”.

Concerning Obsidian Crows


What is an Obsidian Crow? Readers of the Quantum Series may well wonder.

Obsidian Crows are a known road hazard on Deanna. Please ensure you have a spare tire when traveling.

 

Perhaps first and foremost, Obsidian Crows are a known road hazard on Deanna – the planet central to most of the adventures in the Quantum Series. While they rarely get more than a mention in any single book in the series, they are one of the elements which help distinguish the setting. If you ever do visit Deanna, please ensure you have a spare tire when traveling. (You might want to read “Dead Man’s Hammer” to understand why.) More

New Release: Quantum – Keep Off The Crabbygrass


The Quantum Series – Keep Off The Crabbygrass” is an omnibus of The Quantum Series titles 1, 2, 3 and 4, containing “Black Sunrise”, “The Time Saving Agency“, “Dead Man’s Hammer” and “Loderunner”.

Due to the variation in international markets and differing distribution marketing requirements, it has been necessary to reissue some titles in various series in different print formats. As a firm believer that the 4.25 wide x 6.88 tall “pocketbook” size is the appropriate size for “real” novels, I find it disappointing that some international distributors do not accept this size, favoring the 6″x 9″ format instead. It is larger for one thing, and as a result decreases page count, making books that were traditionally “long enough” to pack a decent-sized novel in the proper size, seem much smaller and less appealing in the 6 x 9 format.

At 452 pages of value in the new format, the print paperback copy containing the first four stories in the Quantum Series still works out cheaper (by HALF) than buying all four titles separately! Hopefully the new size will allow bookstores in South Africa to start stocking this title on their shelves soon! “The Quantum Series – Keep Off The Crabbygrass” is available only in paperback and the original separate titles in pocketbook size – as well as the separate ebook versions will continue to be available.
