    Available in May

    Coming soon--look for DEADLY STING by Michael Paulson. In the latest of Paulson's hard-boiled Deacon Bishop mysteries, Bishop finds himself on the trail of a mysterious redhead, investigating why so many people are suddenly dying of bee-stings, and hopping on an ancient sea-plane to take a trip to an odd and dangerous island.

    First Contact cover

    Still available at introductory pricing (through May 9th). FIRST CONTACT is the latest from author Kenneth E. Ingle. Imagine if you were a scientist who'd accidentally caught yourself and a group of your peers in an explosion that gave you the unique ability to age extremely slowly. Cool, right? Except that people start to notice--and when people notice, governments notice. If Maria Presk and her co-workers can't get away, they'll find themselves back in a lab--but this time as subjects rather than scientists. Maria's solution--to escape to the stars. The problem--aliens lay claim to the stars and they're not happy to see the humans. FIRST CONTACT is priced at $3.99 (eBook) but available at our promotional introductory price of only $1.00 until May 9, 2009. Check it out here.

    Coming in June
    • Look for a revised and updated version of MOTOR CITY SHAMBLER by Joshua Calkins-Treworgy and a charming fantasy by Wendy Palmer.
