_________________________________

Jack Montgomery is a freelance investigator for the CDC's Global Health Center, and soon stumbles upon a medical mystery that threatens to change everything he thought he knew about the world--and might change everything he thought he knew about himself.  As the pieces of a world-wide conspiracy fall into place, Jack awakens a sleeping giant that could crush him without a thought.  One that has now turned its attention to him.

The machineries of government grind slowly, and one man with nothing left to lose just might have a chance.  A chance to free the sleepers.

Sera Storme

Eight years ago, Sera Storme was forced to give up her baby daughter, Lani, for safekeeping. On the run from the Trillium criminal organization, she became a bounty hunter and mercenary for hire, taking jobs where she could, staying low-key. 

On her most dangerous assignment yet, she and Lani are reunited. Sera Storme is a hotheaded bounty hunter, a crack shot and a master of unarmed combat. Being a mother was not something she was prepared for. 

Now Sera must track down and defeat Xane Mori, a dangerous psychic from Mars, in the Sol system, while keeping eight-year-old Lani safe from the Trillium soldiers hunting them. Her only ally is the icy Sabian Delain. Sera’s mission will force her to confront her past, and to find a way to forge a bond with the daughter she left behind.

An Opera In Space

The year is 2157, and the crew of ASC Fermata has, like so many others following the destruction of Earth, taken to the stars in search of work.

Vulpine One

Andrus Ovega is accused of murdering his own parents. He is a fugitive from Earth and AWOL from the space army of the International Space eXploration Commission. Left for dead aboard a burning ship, he is forced to assume the role of a notorious mercenary, "Vulpine One." But as he hunts for hope for the future, his past chases him through the cosmos. He'll need all the weaponry, cunning and help from the artificial intelligence "Foxtrot" to survive the criminal underground, corrupt government agencies, evil secret societies and space mutated monsters as he searches for revenge and clues to the origins of the mysterious order of Vulpine. 

The Stone of Tantalus

The Dead Zone meets The Talisman!


Jason Callahan wants to go home, and he would if he knew where it was. For years his world has changed around him again and again without warning, leaving him with new jobs, new friends, and new enemies. One of a few travelers, Jason is able to slip between the many universes that make up his life, moving sideways from one reality to another. He just can’t control it. Even worse, another traveler is trying to kill him, and his only assets are his wits, an uncle the family thinks is crazy, and a cryptic alternate version of himself. While many might lose their grip on reality, and others would simply give up, Jason hopes the next jump will take him home to the life and love he left behind. When the universe calls, however, sometimes you just have to make a stand.

Crossing the Streams

Non-human romance. Tarot-powered difference engines. The bureaucracy of the gate to Hell. These and more appear in this anthology of strange stories by Jeremy Zimmerman. This anthology collects five genre-bending tales from fantasy to steampunk to cyberpunk.

“I won’t spoil the ending, but I will offer that the imagery in this tale is so wonderful that the settings sometimes transported me away from the main character’s conflict. The scenes in this story, like Impressionist art, consist of ordinary subjects displayed in mesmerizingly vacillating light. Whereas I usually care most about plot and about character development, these descriptions were so robust that I would gladly read additional pages of Zimmerman’s work just to reimmerse myself in his language.”
– KJ Hannah Greenberg, Tangent, regarding “A Crazy Kind of Love”

“Unchained Melody is a sharp, beautiful blow to the heart. Zimmerman wrote a heroine who is recognizable; a woman who is defining herself, on her terms.”
– Lillian Cohen-Moore, author of The Imperial Companion, and Hatavat Chalom

Machinery of Man

Explore this exciting new story by the author of The Everything Factor (2014)

 Everything we've known is wrong! ​Prepare for a truth that will shake humanity to its core!

Machinery of Man follows Doug Vasiter's visit to the hamlet of Bandigan Bay as he oversees the production of a new Denathynol plant. Denathynol is a revolutionary new fuel source mixing minimal amounts of oil with natural materials found in the soils surrounding meteor impact zones.

Though the project can provide much needed employment to Bandigan Bay residents, while also serving as the first step in extending mankind's warranty on Earth amid our impending energy crisis, there also exists a sect of people aggressively  and strangely opposed to any new development.

A series of seemingly odd, "abort" messages across modern day technological devices, peculiar acts of vandalism and mysteriously cold, detached people all culminate in a mind bending truth.

Everything that people have regarded as facts about who and what we are as a species, where we come from, and the evolution of life itself, will be completely rewritten.

The truth will either set everyone free, or destroy everything in the process.

One man's passionate project, designed to be socially and environmentally responsible, will end up being the very thing that the fate of our entire universe rest upon.

The Unlucky 7 Chronicles Season 1

In the near future,  a ruthless terrorist called the Cardinal will summon a group of ruthless mercenaries, in secret. An act that draws the attention of the Bureau, a shadowy organisation run by a mysterious leader called Zero who protects humanity. Every Bureau operative has had their life stolen from them and have but one directive: Do or die. 

 

Zero sends two Bureau operatives—Seven and Two—to infiltrate the Cardinal's group and shut things down. However, what was first thought to be an orientation turns out to be far worse plans that put every major world government at risk. 

 

Seven and Two have just days to shut things down. But a string of missteps leave the Cardinal suspicious and the pair struggling to stay one step ahead.

 

If Seven and Two succeed, they defeat the Cardinal and save millions. If they fail, it's just another step towards humanity's downfall. 

 

"A hit!"

-LM Bryski, Author of THE BOOK OF BIRDS

 

"Clever. Intriguing. I have never read such a story."

-Bill McStowe, Channillo Author of UNCHARTED
