Throwaways by Jack Ewing

Throwaways  

 

A down-and-out man sleeping under a bridge stumbles upon the body of a murdered young woman stuffed in a trash bag and washed up at his campsite. The killers, seeking to retrieve a telltale item from the corpse, soon arrive at the bridge while following the river in search of the victim. The derelict soon finds himself hiding with the body and wrestling with the need for self-preservation, and the desire to bring the dead woman’s murderers to justice.

 

A work of short crime from our Fingerprints line.

Space: 1889 & Beyond: Ghosts of Mercury

Ghosts of Mercury  

 

Mercury: a planet of two faces – one side cloaked in eternal darkness, the other blistered by eternal sunshine. And balanced between the two is the World River, encircling the globe.

 

Professor Nathanial Stone and his ward, Annabelle Somerset visit Mercury for what they imagine will be a pleasant trip to visit Annabelle’s uncle.

 

But tragic death precedes them – a death that provokes a chain of mysterious and terrifying events that challenge Nathanial and Annabelle’s long-held beliefs. Before long, they – with the assistance of French geologist, Arnaud Fontaine – discover something ancient and powerful that has designs on humanity.

 

About Author Mark Michalowski:


Michalowski’s first published work was a short story in the Big Finish Productions’ collection Professor Bernice Summerfield and the Dead Men’s Diaries (Big Finish, September 2000), which was the result of a chance meeting with producer Gary Russell whilst both were visiting BBC Manchester. He continued writing short stories for Big Finish’s Short Trips range, and also for a variety of charity fanzines, before his first novel, Relative Dementias (BBC Books, 2003) was published as part of the BBC Books Past Doctor Adventures. This was widely well-received, and led to a further novel being published by the BBC, this time an Eighth Doctor Adventure called Halflife (BBC Books, 2004).

 

His next published novel was the Big Finish Bernice Summerfield novel The Tree of Life (Big Finish, 2005), followed by the story “Let There Be Stars” in the Bernice Summerfield anthology Collected Works (Big Finish, 2005) and other stories for collections by the same company.

 

A further Doctor Who novel was published in September 2007, Wetworld featuring the 10th Doctor and Martha, and a second NSA released in September 2008, Shining Darkness featuring the 10th Doctor and Donna.

 

Since then he has contributed a story to the audio play Forty Five (Big Finish, 2009) to help celebrate the 45th anniversary of Doctor Who, as well as written the Iris Wildthyme audio The Sound of Fear (Big Finish, 2009).

 

He has also contributed graphic design work to Obverse Books, designing the cover for their short story collection, Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus, for which company he also contributed a story in The Panda Book of Horror.

 

A Being Human novel, Chasers, was released in 2010, as was a short story for the Bernice Summerfield collection Secret Histories.

Dangerous Race by Dee J. Adams

Hi,

 

If anyone is into reading about car racing, mystery, and two sizzling romances, give my book, Dangerous Race a read.

 

Four years ago, race car driver Tracey Bradshaw almost died in a horrific crash. Now scarred inside and out, she's making a comeback, but her team is plagued by a series of "accidents".

When the team leader dies under mysterious circumstances, former driver Mac Reynolds takes charge. The pair clash as Trace resents his high-handed attempts to control her, while Mac fears Trace's recklessness will get her killed. Neither can throttle back the desire that spins out of control whenever they touch. Trace lets herself be seduced when Mac convinces her he finds her beautiful despite her scars, and she begins to hope for more. But Mac knows he's not nearly good enough for Trace...

Don't miss the sequel, Danger Zone, coming out in February 2012.

 

Dangerous Race is my debut novel, available now through Carina Press and of course B&N.
