Featured Book: A Loop in Time by Clark Graham

Time“We’re losing him!” came a frantic voice over the headset.
“I’m still here,” the pilot insisted.
“We’re losing–” the voice cut out and then there was silence.
“Control, do you read me? Control?” the pilot was panicking.
There was no answer. Suddenly flames burst out all around him. The last thing he remembered was reaching for the eject switch, before his thoughts devolved into an inky black void.

The mysterious pilot was brought into the military hospital unconscious. The base didn’t know who he was. Some thought he was an alien, some thought he was a Russian spy all because of the unknown, yet highly advanced airplane he was flying at the time of his crash.
When the pilot awakes, he has amnesia. He gradually gets his memory back only to find that he is not only in the wrong place, he is also in the wrong time

Unidentified-Cover-Web2Targeted Age Group:: 25-45
Category: Alien Invasion

About Unidentified:
One year ago, a boy mysteriously went missing after claiming to have been abducted by extraterrestrial beings multiple times. No trace of him has ever been found.

Now, Boston-based Special Agent for the FBI, Nicole Mitchell, is brought back from administrative leave when a girl in the same New Hampshire town also claims to have been abducted. The girl’s story bears eerie similarities to the case of the missing boy Mitchell investigated the year before.

Certain that someone is using the powerful suggestion of UFOs and the alien abduction scenario to kidnap these kids, Mitchell enlists the help of paranormal debunking psychiatrist, Dr. Alan Evans. But who among the locals knows the truth? Is it the girl’s parents, the peculiar new pastor in town, the local police? As the case unfolds, Mitchell and Evans are confronted with a much darker and far more sinister reality than they ever expected. Nothing could have prepared them for what they are about to encounter.

“Unidentified is full of spookiness and reversals and surprises and fun. I can’t wait for the movie.”

Category: Post-Apocalyptic

About Burn District 1:
What do you do when the world as you know it is over? Run!! You get to know a family who are doing everything they can to just survive. From fleeing their home with a friend to having to steal just to survive.

Laura and Mike Davis, along with their children make their way to her fathers to hopefully start a new life. Nothing is the same anymore. People are being killed towns at a time without any warning. Thank goodness the Davis family had a warning from their neighbor and was able to get out of their neighborhood just minutes before it was burned.

Along the way they see much death and destruction. When they get to her father’s place are they going to finally be safe? Will they be able to survive? Will they be able to keep out the looters, murders or will this place end up burned too.

What if something like this could really happen in our safe little worlds? Of course I don’t think it ever could, but you never know for sure. This is a wonderful read from the first short prequel through this book and will continue in the next.

Different from this author’s other books but every bit as good. It’s a suspense, thriller, love, sci-fi all in one. It covers it all and is wonderful from start to finish. I can’t wait for the next installment of this series….

Gift Guide: Bad City by Matt Mayr

Category: Science Fiction

About Bad City:
Dark, atmospheric, and gritty…

In the violent world of post-apocalyptic South Town, Eli Baxter is king, ruling from the thirteenth floor of his building while henchman do his bidding. Simon Gray, a talented young thief, now disillusioned with South Town, is desperate to escape with the woman he loves. As he plots their journey north, glimpses of his childhood in South India and Northern Ontario reveal the world as it once was, fueling his desire to break away. But when he’s handed a new job, one that will make Eli untouchable, Simon realizes that escape – and transcendence to love and a peaceful way of life – might be harder than he thought.


“Edgy, violent, wildly imaginitive, surprisingly touching. There are ideas and scenes in Matt Mayr’s Bad City that even the most jaded post-apocalyptic fan will find fresh, inventive, and utterly breathtaking.” — Craig Davidson, author

“In Bad City, Matt Mayr captures with raw vividness what happens when the surfaces of civilization are peeled away, revealing a sheer will to survive that reduces humans to their ugliest essences. Brutal and grimy as Bad City’s post-apocalyptic, dystopian world is, though, there remain hints and tendrils of human longings and even tenderness -– slight sprigs of possibility. A remarkable portrait of a world gone very wrong, as chilling as prophecy.” — Joan Barfoot, award-winning author

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I had a world growing inside my head for many years, and it needed to be let out. I have always seen inspiration in everything around me—from personal life experiences to the worlds crafted by others—and those things have all become a part of my own creation. After years of taking in little ideas here and there, I felt the world in my head was finally ready to be experienced by others. I write now to share that vision. It is the culmination of all that has inspired me throughout my life.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
Science fiction introduces a “what if?” that is outside our everyday reality. In many cases, these scenarios result in explorations of space or other worlds using technology that does not yet exist. Good science fiction presents these technologies and concepts in a believable, internally consistent way. Great science fiction uses that backdrop to tell a compelling story that comments on the human experience (political, social, economic). In that way, science fiction is one of the most powerful genres—reflecting not only who we are as a species, but who we can become.

The Krakow Klub by Philip C. Elrod

Screen-Shot-2015-10-15-at-1.04.25-PMThe story of one man’s attempt to live a normal life, even though he is not normal.

The United States government is under siege. A secretive cabal of super rich elitists, The Krakow Klub, has initiated the final phase of its long range plan to take over the USA from within. They have achieved control of the Presidency and the military. Their puppet in the White House has declared martial law. The Congress, The Supreme Court and many other political leaders not under their control are slated for elimination.

Only one man has the power to stop The Krakow Klub. His name is John F. Scott and he appears to be an ordinary human being. But he is part alien. His power is based on alien technology. Can he be trusted to stop the takeover and return power to a lawful government afterwards? Can he control his power once he unleashes it? Can he control himself during the process? Will he take the risk? If so, at what price?

So many troubling questions, with few clear cut answers.

The scenario for the siege of America is so entirely possible that I truly fear it will likely happen in the future. After writing Mylea:the journey begins I had an individual with the potential power to deal with something that would otherwise be difficult to stop.

The Kota by Sunshine Somerville

Although his brother leads the Kota, Trok wants nothing to do with them. Then his world is turned upside-down by prophecies that say he’ll become the immortal Interceder…
Five hundred years later, the four prophesied Kota Warriors are born. However, nothing about these children is what Trok expected. The Leader is an assassin with the uncanny ability to dematerialize.

Whether the Warriors are ready or not, Earth is in desperate need of saviors. The Dominion tyranny now rules Earth’s dwindling population. Genetic experimentation has created freaks and unbeatable soldiers alike. The Elite thrive in technologically advanced cities while common citizens languish in poverty. And always, the DRK threatens.
Will the Warriors make a difference?
Teaming up with other rebel forces, the Warriors attack the Dominion and search for a DRK cure. But, working in the background, Trok knows that winning this war will take a miracle – one even he cannot foresee.

The story is based on what my brother and I played with our two best friends as kids. I wrote a 20-page story of The Kota when I was 9, and it grew into a full Sci-Fi series along the way.
