Armageddon Girl (New Olympus Saga Book 1) by C.J. Carella
“Superheroes with style and wit.”
– S.M. Stirling, best-selling author of the Change Series.
(WARNING: Contains violence, adult content and strong language.)
A world of larger-than-life heroes and villains with all too human failings. An action-packed tale, combining thrills with humor and more than a few pop culture references and nods to geek culture. This is the first tome of the New Olympus Saga.
College student Christine Dark wasn’t happy. Her social life sucked, she spent too much of her time playing computer games or reading sci-fi novels (and the occasional paranormal romance) and she felt like she was missing out on everything.
Fate had something special in store for her, though.
Without warning, an unknown force drags Christine out of her world and takes her to a whole new universe, an alternate Earth where superhuman beings have existed since the end of World War One, a world filled with strange and dangerous characters.
Christine soon learns she too is more than human, and that her choices may save her new home… or bring about its destruction.

Staking a Claim by Travis J.I. Corcoran
In the early days of the Aristillus moon colony a lone geologist uses a small inheritance to do what the universities and government won’t – fund basic research. Alone on the north face of the central peak in the Aristillus crater, equipped with just a small rover, a Quonset hut, and a small research lab, he finds pyrite – fool’s gold. Except – perhaps it’s not what he assumes after all.

In an anarcho-capitalist border town on the moon with no police and no courts, who enforces property rights?

Firefly Season 2 by Travis J.I. Corcoran & Clark Bianco
When you’re a time trader – someone with a ship that can hop sideways across the millions of alternate timelines – the big money isn’t in technology or science, it’s in entertainment. There are some universes where George Lucas didn’t die on the set of American Graffiti but instead went on to make a space fantasy classic. In other universes there’s a movie called “Dune” by Jodorowsky. And in some there’s a guy named Tolkien who wrote a sequel to “The Hobbit”.
Ask any timetrader and he’ll tell you: put three things together – buyer, seller, and product – and that’s where the magic happens.
And by magic, timetraders mean “profit”.
Now the crew of the Sturnus-class timeship al-Din (kaiser Huck, riverman Oive, artificer Johann-stepson-twice-Friedrich, and galfreitag Ginny Mae) have all three of these things lined up, because they finally secured a copy of a certain TV show. There’s just one problem, and his name is Friedrick Richter.
…or maybe there’s more than one problem, depending on how you look at the situation, because things can get pretty complicated when timelines cross.
So get yourself a stein of mead and a bowl of spiced yam sticks – or pretzels, if that’s all you’ve got in this timeline – pull up a chair, and lend an ear to see how it all turns out.

Sanity by Neovictorian
Have you sometimes felt, since an early age, that you were an alien, somehow placed on Earth and observing the antics of humans as if they were a different species? Why do they believe such stupid things? Why do they do such dumb things? And why do they keep doing them over and over again, seemingly incapable of learning from the bad outcomes of all the previous attempts?
That is how Cal Adler felt since childhood and, like most people with such feelings, kept them quiet and bottled up while trying to get ahead in a game whose rules often seemed absurd. In his senior year in high school, he encounters a substitute guidance counselor who tells him, without any preliminary conversation, precisely how he feels. He’s assured he is not alone, and that over time he will meet others. He is given an enigmatic contact in case of emergency. He is advised, as any alien in a strange land, to blend in while observing and developing his own talents.
Then he meets a Mystery Woman…and the real adventure begins.

Their equilibrium is destroyed when a solar flare strikes and knocks out the satellites. The Cats must reveal their secret to save both their station and the world below. But can they convince a skeptical Earth to work with them?
Dopamine by Mikhail Voloshin
“Have you lost your mind? They’ll kill you. Are you willing to literally bet your life on—”
“On my own technical expertise? Yes. Always.”
It was supposed to be just another software job. It wasn’t supposed to involve dodging bullets, igniting explosions, out-driving hitmen, or bluffing his way through the dens of international crime lords. Danny’s big brain has always served him well at a workstation or a soldering bench, but will he be smart enough to survive the engineering challenge of a lifetime?
Onetime computer whiz-kid Danny still dreams of making it big as an inventor and technologist in the “digital revolution”. But when a fat-fingered email flub from tech investor Jason Tuttle destroys Danny’s latest company, he takes stock of his career and realizes that that ship’s long since sailed. Using some inconvenient information, Danny “persuades” Jason to give him another employment opportunity. But his new assignment may be much more than he bargained for.
Jason has his sights set on a small, highly secretive biotechnology company called Tungsten Medical Technologies. They’ve been impossibly tight-lipped about what they’re developing in there, but Jason is willing to use any means necessary to find out. That’s where Danny comes in. His mission: hack into Tungsten and steal their pharmaceutical research.
At first, Danny and his team of semi-competent geeks relish the chance to play-act as cybercriminals, but they soon discover they aren’t the only ones interested in the inscrutable biotech firm. Their ill-timed computer shenanigans interrupt an armed break-in of the laboratory by the Russian mafia, and Danny lands squarely in the crosshairs of a local cocaine kingpin. He soon finds himself hunted by drug dealers and exploited by Machiavellian corporate moguls in a battle over a test tube of genetically engineered bacteria.
With the help of Tina, an amateur microbiologist desperate for professional recognition, Danny must use his technical skills to elude his powerful pursuers — and, with luck, even beat them at their own game.
Dopamine is a present-day cyberpunk novel — and a celebration of the fact that such a thing as “a present-day cyberpunk novel” is even possible. Featuring some of the most accurate and accessible depictions of computer hacking and biotechnology ever to appear in a work of fiction, Dopamine is a wild ride for anyone who marvels at knowing that the real world we live in today was once strictly the realm of far-fetched fantasy. Whether you’re looking for a high-tech crime thriller; a meticulously researched diamond-hard work of science fiction set twenty nanoseconds in the future; or a subtle exploration of the complex interplay between the worlds we imagine and the realities we create, you’ll find your drug of choice within these pages.
A young radio engineer travels across an alt-history America, encountering primeval gods, mythical beasts, and tall tales come to life, in a quest to build a radio transmitter that can reach the stars.
It all starts in the mountain town of Porterville. Twelve-year-old Philo starts a pirate radio station with his friends, and learns that the world is a stranger place than he ever imagined. The Ancient Marauder, the Bright and Terrible Birds, the Mishipeshu, and other creatures of myth and legend populate this enchanting mixture of science and fantasy.
YANKEE REPUBLIC is an old-school adventure series with traditional values and down-to-earth heroes. Escape from the pessimism and propaganda of modern fiction, and take a journey through a mythic America that might have been.
