Blue collar Sci Fi in the vein of Firefly.
Running a starship repo company isn’t easy or cheap. It’s just an endless string of fuel costs, ship maintenance, legal red tape, unhappy debt bailers, shady associates and uncooperative dock officials from one end of the galaxy to the other.

Nathan Teller owns and operates Milky Way Repossessions, a company that tracks down and repossesses starships. And although he’s only managing to break even on his debt, he wouldn’t trade it for anything. (His ex-wife holds that against him. No surprise there.)

When Nathan and his crew successfully steal a freighter from the clutches of a particularly tenacious and corrupt dock official, he earns the respect of their high profile employer. Opportunity seems a sure thing.

Nathan should be happy. But when that lucrative job op turns into a ransom delivery for a starship crew being held hostage by a cult, he suddenly finds himself pursued by a self-immolating loan shark hell bent on collecting a gambling debt.

How will it all turn out? You never know. Especially when Nathan and his Starship repo agents are up against a cult and the mob…

“I think Milky Way Repo carves out a unique niche in science fiction by presenting protagonists that work hard for a living, sort of a genre of blue collar sci-fi. The world is bigger than them and there isn’t a large fascist government operating against them. In this case, the characters struggle to make ends meet and do so against forces that are relatable; the economy, employers that hold sway over workers, religious elements, and organized crime figures that move in the shadows.” — Michael Prelee, author

Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

By: Anne Louise O’Connell
Abbie Slocum, a forty-something, average housewife and mother of teenage twin boys, is trying desperately to keep her outwardly idyllic life together while spiralling into a dark pit of menopausal insanity. Her mind races with crazy thoughts so outside of her normal character that it frightens her. The only person she can share the graphic images from her hormonally addled mind with is her recently separated best friend, Rachel, and the mysteriously titillating Joan, Rachel’s friend from her singles support group.
Women have survived this ”˜female rite of passage’ since the beginning of time! Why was Abbie having so much trouble handling it? As the hot flashes and night sweats escalate and the battle to maintain her sanity rages on, Abbie, Rachel and Joan stumble into borderline comical circumstances that lead to all night parties, sex and drugs and two suspicious deaths. Abbie’s cop husband, Conrad, tries desperately to understand what’s happening to his normally sweet wife. While Conrad vies for promotion, the Slocum family gets embroiled in a media frenzy that swirls around a murder trial in which Abbie must fight for her life. Will her Mental Pause cause her to plead temporary insanity?

HavenPort: Population 492
A town with no roads in or out.

Deputy Hank McCarthy has just moved his family into the remote Alaskan town to replace the local Sheriff. He doesn’t think a small sleepy town like HavenPort will offer much in the way of excitement but, considering what he’s running from, he’s more than happy about that.

Unlike Hank, she’s not sure what she’ll find in HavenPort, especially when supernatural terrors begin to haunt her dreams, and sometimes her waking hours. The people of HavenPort claim it’s no cause for concern. No need to act crazy. She knows what crazy is like.

When Hank and Emma share a daytime terror they begin to see there’s more to this town than they know. Unfortunately for them it’s already too late. Their paths are chosen. There’s no way out of HavenPort.

A supernatural sci-fi thriller, Bedlam Lost delivers for fans of Dean Koontz and J. J. Abrams’ LOST. Step into this story and you might not be able to leave.

Wanted: Translator for first contact. Immediate opening. Danger pay allowance

Estlin Hume lives in Twin Butte, Alberta surrounded by a horde of affectionate squirrels. His involuntary squirrel-attracting talent leaves him evicted, expelled, fired and near penniless until two aliens arrive and adopt him as their translator. Yanked around the world at the center of the first contact crisis, Estlin finds his new employers incomprehensible. As he faces the ultimate language barrier, unsympathetic military forces converging in the South Pacific keep threatening to shoot the messenger.

A monkey on his back?

After Wallace Butterfield’s father’s death, ‘Butterfield and Son Architects’ becomes, for all intents and purposes, ‘Son ”” Newly Graduated ”” Without a Clue ”” Architect ”” Maybe’!

With his inheritance sold to get the architectural business on its feet, Butterfield eagerly desires to add a major architectural project to his curriculum vitae. (Critics describe his previous project, le Mareschal’s Supermarket, a large unimpressive glass and chrome rectangle ”” though some shoppers have told Butterfield that they appreciate the large inventory of groceries and home products”¦)

When Butterfield gets a call from the Reverend Poda-Pirudi, chairman of the Westminster Abbey Foundation, he overlooks the fact that the Reverend can only meet with him in the middle of the night ”” in an office located in the dark and cluttered attic of the Abbey itself.

Butterfield thinks he’s finally moving up in the world.

However, the interred ghosts of Westminster Abbey haven’t yet weighed in; and a local group of WITCHes (Women In Therapeutic Chemical Healing ”” who aren’t above kidnapping) have also taken a special interest in the architect.

To top everything off, invitations to join the party were also sent to Edward the Confessor, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Aleister Crowley!

———–

Set inside Westminster Abbey, England’s enduring symbol of unity and crowned culture, a community of ghosts, whose remains rest inside the iconic building, arise at the bidding of a strange cleric.

Gunpowder magic, steam-power, adventure, and intrigue…

Carrtog, landless third son of Tsingallik and warrior trained in the use of powder magic, intends to make his way as a mercenary for hire. On his travels north, he and his personal guardsman stumble upon the royal christening of an expansion to Cragmor’s burgeoning railway ”””” in this case a gift from the King as a sign of goodwill to the conquered north of old. When the gathered populace prove they are not there to be pacified, Carrtog isn’t about to standby and do nothing. Cloaks sweep back, swords and pistols are drawn. Luckily for Carrtog, charging in might be his best chance of earning a name. But then the trap springs around the royal party and Carrtog realizes his eagerness may lead to his demise.

Worse, if he manages to survive the ensorcelled contraption and rescue the King from the depths of the rebellious north, he might find that holding the King’s favor could prove more dangerous than any duel against a combat magician in the haze of battlefield smoke. He’ll need more than a little wit and inventiveness to survive this uprising.

Steam engines, railway lines, gunpowder magic, and the advent of flight merge this flintlock fantasy adventure with the well tested machinations of steampunk ”””” a true confluence of invention and rebellion.
