Action! Adventure! LGBT heroes! – The Quantum Series by Christina Engela!

The Quantum Series by Christina Engela, now standing at six titles, is sci-fi with a dash of fantasy, featuring a host of heroes, heroines, villains, aliens, and unusual and often humorous situations.

Panic! Horror In Space – an extract from Mercury Rising


Mercury Rising” – a free look inside “Static” by Christina Engela.

Aboard the derelict long-lost loderunner Kilgary, Commander Vic Chapman held his blaster ready for action as they started down the vacant corridor, in the direction leading back to the bridge. Behind them, a pack of the undead swarmed around what they presumed was the body of their comrade, ensign Pierce, apparently gorging themselves on his remains. They cautiously made their way to the turning, trying their best to do so as quietly as possible – it wouldn’t do to make any noises that might attract more of them!

“Got anything resembling a plan?” Vic asked his captain. More

New Release: “Blachart”, Book 1 in the Galaxii Series – 2018


I’ve been writing stories basically since I could hold a wax crayon, and this book is in that respect a milestone for me. Why? Well, you may ask that question, but the answer isn’t a simple one.

While you may recognize the name of this book, “Blachart“, you won’t recognize the cover! If you read it before, and were to read it again now, you would notice a few changes. For one thing, there are illustrations in color (eBook versions), and while the plot remains unchanged, the flow of events within are more refined and there is a good deal more story to it. The book is also a good deal longer than it was before – nearly twice the length as a matter of fact. This is book 1 in the Galaxii Series, titled “Blachart“, and the new version is now available via Lulu.com and Smashwords, and should be through their networks of retailers too, shortly.

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.
