About the book
Among the brilliant visionary scenarios in Extrasolar: military antagonists meet in the atmosphere of a gas giant; gifted children hijack a starship to search out a new home; a superjovian world yields mysterious and much-coveted gemstones; aliens find our solar system disconcertingly paradoxical; a feminist SF writer of the Seventies crafts liberating exoplanetary dreams; the habitats aboard a gargantuan spaceship cater to the needs of truly exotic aliens; and scientists eagerly seeking exoplanets confront a devastating truth. And then there are songs of home and far away and bitter exile; intelligence calling to intelligence across light years and species barriers; utterly immersive dives into perilous planetary atmospheres; brave responses to enigmatic messages from the stars; a machine embracing a Gothic destiny; and a truly different kind of space opera.

THE SMALLEST OF THINGS  by Ian Whates

PUBLICATION DATE  October 2018
COVER ART  Ben Baldwin
PAGES 87

SYNOPSIS

There are many Londons. From pomp to sleaze, from sophistication to dark corruption, Chris knows them all. A fixer with a particular set of skills, he can step between realities, piercing the thin veils that separate one London from another to find objects or locate people that have fallen between the cracks.
When a close friend, Claire, comes to him fearing for her life he is forced to use his abilities as never before, fleeing with her through a series of ever stranger Londons, trying to keep one step ahead of the men who murdered her boyfriend and are now hunting her.   
At some point, Chris hopes that he and Claire can pause long enough to figure out why these mysterious figures from another London want her dead, but right now they’re too busy simply trying to stay alive.

REVELATION & OTHER STORIES OF FANTASCIENCE by Albert E. Cowdrey

ABOUT THE BOOK

Though highly regarded and widely heralded, Albert Cowdrey’s short stories have mostly appeared in digest magazines and reprints have been sporadic. This collection gathers fourteen of his finest tales.
    These narratives show much of the breadth and all of the appeal of Cowdrey’s fiction. They vary from historical fantasies set six hundred years ago to science-fictional adventures in the distant future. The characters are a wondrous crew of sheriffs, soldiers, academics, bookstore owners, government agents, and a ne’er-do-well nephew and the stories vary in tone from the comic to the creepy, from the pensive to the pulse-pounding.
    Among these stories are:

  • “Queen for a Day,” the World Fantasy Award-winning tale of murder in the Crescent City.
  • “Twilight States,” a dark story about brothers, psychologists, and an old pulp magazine.
  • “The Tribes of Bela,” in which Colonel Kohn journeys to the planet Bela to investigate a death in the mining colony . . . only to be drawn into something much bigger.
  • “The Overseer”, wherein the glories and hardships of Reconstruction come to life amid deep secrets.

    With ten more tales that range from the World War battlefront to the halls of academe, from Scandinavia to outer space, this book keeps the reader in anticipation of what will come next. While Albert Cowdrey’s fiction has been likened to that of Saki and Bloch, of Tiptree and Dahl, the wit, adventure, philosophy, and supernatural investigations here are uniquely Albert Cowdrey, and they’re sure to delight his many fans and bring many more into the fold.
