        The Girls from Planet 5 - by Richard Wilson

         

        When the beautiful invaders took over, only Texas fought back! A "different" science fiction novel by award-winning author Richard Wilson. Originally published in 1955, this is a science fiction romp that pokes fun at the B-Movie notion of beautiful alien invaders.

         

        Richard Wilson (1920–1987) was a Nebula Award winning American science fiction writer and fan. He was a member of the Futurians, along with such notables as Isaac Asimov, Donald A. Wollheim, and C.M. Kornbluth. His books included the novels The Girls from Planet 5 (1955); 30-Day Wonder (1960); and And Then the Town Took Off (1960); and the collections Those Idiots from Earth (1957) and Time Out for Tomorrow (1962). His short stories included "The Eight Billion" (nominated for a Nebula Award as Best Short Story in 1965); "Mother to the World" (nominated for the Hugo for Best Novelette in 1969 and winner of the Nebula in 1968); and "The Story Writer" (nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novella in 1979).

          Stormcaller 

          Stormcaller by Everet Martins

           

          New author Everet Martins introduces readers to the fantastical world of Zoria, a land of volcanos and carnivorous plants.

           

          10,000 years have passed since Asebor was sealed during the first Age of Dawn. The power binding this malevolent god has finally waned, allowing him to once again beat the drums of war.

           

          Men worship the Phoenix and Dragon gods. Some are fortunate enough to touch their essences, transforming ordinary women into fearsome warriors and men into miraculous healers.

           

          The beginnings of the next scourge brushes the town of Breden, where Walter, son of elixir bean farmers, itches for adventure only to discover the harsh brutality of combat.

            Dawn of the Sacred Land: The Beginning 

            The Sacred Land Saga Begins

            by Mark E Tyson

            The Sacred Land Saga (Book #0)

            Dawn of the Sacred Land: The Beginning

            As the ancient battlefield, called the Sacred Land, regenerates its magical potency, Lady Shey discovers a plot, conceived by the denizens of evil, to seize and control it. As it turns out, the war that created the Sacred Land never came to a satisfying end, and Lady Shey is told she must help the descendants of the magical warriors who fought the war in the past to take up the mantle and end it. However, the descendants live in a place where magic is outlawed, hated, and feared, and the enemy has a new, deadly, shapeshifting monster, virtually undetectable, stalking her every move.

                Kobo - eBooks - Ren of Atikala

                Kobolds, #1 by David Adams

                Ren of Atikala

                I am Ren of Atikala. Kobold. Sorceress. Warrior. I have many stories to tell and this one is about my home.

                 

                Home. The word has a special resonance with us all. Great or humble, rich or poor, everyone cherishes their home, and if deprived of it, loses a piece of themselves. I once thought that life could not be so cruel as to take everything I’d known in an instant.

                 

                Oh how I now understand that life can be capricious indeed. This is the story of how I came to the surface of Drathari and unwillingly traded a life for a life.

                  As I blogged about a few minutes ago at Barry Eisler - why he self-publishes, and a free copy of his book, Barry Eisler is generously offering the following FREEBIE on his website:

                  Digital print in all formats for free

                  Be the Monkey(.zip containing .epub, .prc, .pdf)

                  The same book is:

                  Overview

                  Sure, the advent of digital books is the most significant development in publishing since Gutenberg. But what does digital mean really, for agents, publishers, and most of all, for authors? What will the industry look like tomorrow, and what should authors be doing to properly position themselves today?

                   

                    Examining the history and mechanics of the publishing industry as it exists today, the way the digital revolution reflects recent events in Egypt and the Maghreb, and a completely inappropriate YouTube video featuring a randy monkey and an unlucky frog, bestselling authors (and friends) J.A. Konrath and Barry Eisler show in this 35,000 word online discussion that digital isn't just the future, it's right now.

                   

                    Konrath, a pioneer in self-publishing, is now making over a half-million dollars a year through his self-published books, and Eisler just turned down a half-million dollar deal from one of the Big 6 NYC publishers to self-publish his latest novel. To find out why and what it all means for you, read on.

                      In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus. 

                    Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment - a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring.

                            Diagnosis Murder

                            In five short stories and one long novelette, Rufus King introduces Colin Starr, a young physician whose medical knowledge enables him to detect murder where a less able doctor would have signed a certificate of death from natural causes. Because of his shrewd understanding of human psychology as well as his application of scientific knowledge to seemingly unrelated facts, Dr. Starr is a unique detective in the annals of crime. Included in this volume are:

                              • The Case of the Three Baleful Brothers
                              • The Case of the Prodigal Bridegroom
