The Scriptlings

Book Synopsis The Scriptlings by : Sorin Suciu

""Master Dung's study was silent. So silent, in fact, that one might have been able to hear a gnat passing air, if only an obligingly flatulent gnat had happened nearby."" The Scriptlings is the unlikely, yet strangely charismatic lovechild you would expect if Magic and Science were to have one too many drinks during a stand-up comedy show in Vegas. In short, it follows the story of Merkin and Buggeroff, two magician apprentices in a world where magicians are capitalists, computers are quasi-magical, and goats are sometimes invisible - all under the watchful eye of a wandering tribe of monosyllabic demigods. What The Experts Are Saying: "Laugh your heart out " "A love letter to Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett." "Magic, computers, fast-paced action, and a goat." "You may find yourself reading it aloud."

The Scriptlings

Book Synopsis The Scriptlings by : Sorin Suciu

"Every computer geek has dreamed about becoming a wizard, but in 'The Scriptlings' wizards are computer geeks. It kind of makes you want to learn dead languages and how to write computer code, just to see if it would actually work. 'The Scriptlings' is a hilariously insane train ride filled with crazy people, and you're just happy to be there watching the madness." - Garrett Robinson

Matter of Resistance

Book Synopsis Matter of Resistance by : Raymond Vogel

The science fiction imagining of a former rocket scientist, "Matter of Resistance" pushes technology and human nature to the limits as it chronicles our Mars settlement's struggle for independence from Earth. Though it was written for young adults, it's received high praise and recommendations from top minds in science, aerospace, and defense. What The Experts Are Saying: MARK CANTRELL, PhD, NASA Orion Materials and Processes, Senior Staff: "A really interesting story that examines space travel within the possibilities of today's technology and in the context of natural human drives. I loved this story. I recommend it." COLONEL ROSS NUNN, USAF Retired; former Commander of the Air Force Astronautics Lab; early proponent of antimatter and fusion-based propulsion research: "Picked up the book to read the first chapter - didn't put it down until I finished the entire book. Captivating, suspense-filled reading, beginning to end." SORIN SUCIU, author of the laugh-out-loud contemporary fantasy, "The Scriptlings" (2013): "This captivating story bears the unmistakable mark of an instant SF classic, in that the science (while as solid as you would expect from a friggin rocket scientist) is merely a backdrop for a fascinating introspection into human nature. "Matter of Resistance" might not cure your Asimov or Clarke nostalgia, but it will certainly infect you with the Vogel virus. There, you have been warned."

The Obsidian Mirror

Book Synopsis The Obsidian Mirror by : K.D. Keenan

Sharp and funny, K.D. Keenan has inherited the mantle of stalwarts Patricia Briggs and Kim Harrison, and The Obsidian Mirror is a masterpiece of thrills for every fantasy reader. When Sierra Carter, an out-of-work PR executive, receives a call from Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent god of the Aztecs, she suddenly has more problems on her plate than unemployment. Saving the whole planet, for example. Sierra discovers that her former employer’s semiconductors are in reality a means of spreading a deadly evil around the world. Necocyaotl, Aztec god of death and destruction, has imbued his essence within every device, causing people to place their self-interest and selfish desires above all else. Sierra is called upon to stop him. With his request, Quetzalcoatl offers strange and gifted assistants, Coyotl the trickster, otherwise known as Chaco, a handsome shape-shifting avatar; and Fred, a diminutive and mischievous mannegishi. Although Sierra is skeptical, the revelation of a previously unknown world and its attendants is undeniable. As is the peril Necocyaotl’s return to power promises. Entering the fray with avatars and mythological creatures alongside her, Sierra will discover there are incalculable wonders—and dangers—within the new Old World.
