The only thing buried deeper than her sister's body is the truth.

To protect Maureen Buckley from her family's plot to have her placed under a guardianship, attorney Allen Mann will have to first understand what could have driven her to conceal the mummified body of her twin sister under her family's sprawling Texas ranch. While none question Maureen's brilliance, her fear of leaving home and deference to the mysterious entities she refers to as the "Guardians" raise serious doubts about her sanity. Allen will have to dig deep into the gnarled roots of a wealthy family's twisted history, including the disappearance of two boys decades earlier, to unravel Maureen's motives and determine if she really is the delusional killer that will be portrayed in court.

So who’s dumping all the dead cats in Fawn’s territory?

Fawn Malero has gone out of her way to live a normal life. It was a little hard to do what with her father being a powerful magician and head magistrate over all supernatural activity in the greater Seattle area. But she tried, even to the point of neglecting her part of the city assigned to her to watch over.

Then the dead cats started showing up, and so did Logan, a werewolf with whom she had had an uneasy childhood. Next thing she knew, she was hiding a vampire in her basement as well as a young warlock on the run. Did I mention the roommate who was a ghost?

Before she knew it, Fawn had a whole posse to help her solve the mystery. So much for her so-called “normal human” life.

Here I sit at a police station being accused of murder! 

Will wonders never cease? How could I have decapitated Gerry Delaney when he was a big, barrel-chested man and I’m a slim woman, barely registering five-feet six? That’s something the cop interrogating me can’t or won’t answer. Besides, why would I kill Gerry? I was trying to get him to buy tequila mixers for his dive bar. He hadn’t made up his mind yet and killing him wasn’t going to help.
 
I’m Hetty Carson, private investigator. Business was slow, so I started selling tequila mixers on the side in downtown L.A. Who knew it could lead to murder? I mean, Gerry’s murder was a tragedy, for sure, but I figured it didn’t have anything to do with me. Until someone figured it did, and now I have to investigate why if I want to stay alive.

•	Who coined the term “sci-fi”?
•	What widely-read 1930s non-SF novel inspired a series of stories about flying, space-traveling cities?
•	Was there really a Communist front organization that produced nearly two dozen of the best science fiction authors, editors, and publishers, almost none of whom were Communists?

Perhaps the “Cliff’s Notes” of classic science fiction, writer Sourdough Jackson’s essays keep alive the books, authors, editors, publishers, magazines, and movies that made science fiction the successful subject and industry it is today.

Jackson’s love and deep knowledge of SF is obvious in That Old Science Fiction, originally published as a monthly column in DASFAx, the newsletter of the Denver Area Science Fiction Association.

That love is brought to you here, complete with a forward by Robert Vardeman, author of The Cenotaph Road and dozens of other science fiction novels.

What do you do after you’ve burned your hometown to the ground? That’s the question best friends Danny and Sieg have to answer when their homecoming float goes horribly awry. Instead of going to prison, the two end up renovating a broken-down mountain resort Danny’s uncle won in a poker game.

There they discover love, the evilest cat in the world, ghosts, and an Oxford-educated Sasquatch. Now, they and their new friends have to save the Sasquatch from a pair of intrepid tabloid reporters, a fake medium, and a developer who wants to level the resort to build condos.

The fire is beginning to look like the easy part.

Perseverance!

That is how Martha, a single mother in the West Virginia of 1918, survives and ultimately thrives, doing whatever she has to for her daughter, Frances.

This tale of two remarkable women covers a fifty year period from World War I well into the 60s, full of pain, joy, friends gained and lost ... oh, and the creation of Kevlar.

Tiffany didn’t mean to kill her boyfriend and the skank he was cheating on her with, but the wolf just took over.

Which is how Tiffany found out she was a werewolf and there was a world of supernatural creatures the humans only heard about in myths and folklore. Now, Tiffany needed to find her place in her new pack—did she even want a place there?—and a way to balance her wolf life with her human career. Oh, and then was the sheer animal magnetism of Fin ...

Who is Lydia Warren? That’s what she’d like to know. 
An amnesiac, she vaguely remembers arriving in Santorini with this one-armed man she instinctive trusts but cannot recall his name. She guides us through the fog that is her mind, and her odyssey towards understanding that is even further complicated by memories of a life not her own from before she was born.

So you think you know about Evita? No, you don't. 

Ask Mona, her confidant, or Pierre, her bodyguard. They have the inside track.

Argentina fell in love with Eva Peron during her lifetime. The world followed suit later with the help of a Broadway musical about her Life, Evita. But there is much we don't know about the first lady of Argentina. For example, where are her jewels? They seem to have disappeared. Mona can tell you where they are — in a vault in the Swiss Alps. 

Like Eva herself, Mona comes from a broken family and has to make her own way. Perhaps that's why the two women feel close.  Evita is at the pinnacle of success but already in the grip of a fatal illness. We see her life through the eyes of Mona and Pierre, two people she trusts -- and who betray her in the end. Or can theft and murder be justified?

Archduke Franz Ferdinand has been assassinated!

However, in this timeline, cooler heads have prevailed and a world war is averted. The threads of history which began unweaving with the premature death of Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, in Victoria II are now sewing themselves into a new and different European tapestry.

Much of the extended royal family which rules Europe looks a little different. The British King, the German Empress, and the Tsarina of Russia are all siblings. These close familial ties have guided Europe into a peaceful 20th century. But there are threats from outside this close-knit circle which could be the undoing of all as the children of Queen Victoria II fight to keep their crowns.

Book 3 of the Pan Chronicles

So far Pippa Gardiner has lost her mother in a fire, fallen in love with a Pan from another reality, the Fairy world, discovered her father was a former Pan, developed a close friendship with a satyr, and discovered she has a half-brother who just happens to the Prince of the Fairies. And that’s all been within the last year.

Now that her brother seems determined to release the apocalyptic creature known as Ruinae, Pippa has to brace herself for even more shocking revelations as she tries to save both of her worlds from the Ruinae’s followers. Most notably, the Squalus, a malevolent being who uses the oceans to wreak havoc.

Percival is an inconsequential lad stuck in the most disgusting, humiliating, and dangerous job on the planet Landis who flees to find a future at sea.

Aboard the Fisher King, a run down, undercrewed, interstellar cargo ship, he learns important lessons such as being in the vacuum of space without a spacesuit makes his tongue itch, how to fend off a pirate attack with a mining tool, and make new best friends who poison him and cut his throat (but not without apologizing profusely).

But his old life won’t him go. After being drug home for a murder he didn’t commit—creating a technical state of war between the Fisher King and the governments of Landis—he finds strengths he didn’t know he had. But is the personal cost just too much to save himself and his friends?

Father Thomas Morelli thought he knew the story behind Lucifer’s fall from Heaven. However, upon making the acquaintance of renowned book authenticator Lorenza Pellegrini and being invited to stay in the opulent Venice villa belonging to her “master,” Thomas discovers he has only heard part of the story.

Joining forces, Lorenza, David, and Thomas must race against time to prevent an ancient battle from reigniting.

The big question: Can the investigative journalist find the ‘Torch’ before his ratings-hungry boss gets him killed?
