During October, we pubished two books. SARAGOSA PRIME--a science fiction adventure, and THE CARPATHIAN SHADOWS Vol. 2 a fantasy/horror story set in Transylvania. Both of these are still available at the introductory price of only $1--but time is running out Here are the covers and a bit of detail:
||It was supposed to be a peaceful transition to democracy, but when a warlord invades Saragosa Prime, the old corporate leaders and a popular uprising among the residents join forces. Still, what can they do against an enemy with thousands of mercenaries and with complete control of space overhead? Exciting space/military action--and only $1.00 until November 11, 2008.
Visitors to a Romanian hotel receive an invitation to a free tour of a Transylvanian castle. They're supposed to be searching for paranormal activities but none of the tourists really believe they'll find anything--until they do. An exciting collection of connected stories, edited and assembled by Lea Schizas. Only $1 until November 30, 2008.
New in paperback:
Coming in November
