“When technology prowess outruns social progress, humanity loses the race.”
It’s Boston 2037, and DNA is just another programming language. Tensions between humans and hybrids are rising. An obelisk from space warns of invasion. Havoc erupts in the streets.
Peter, along with Ears, his researcher, and Molli, his sound engineer and kung fu expert, are podcasting from Cambridge, a world center for AI, nanotech, and human genome editing. To improve ratings, they decide to go edgy, interviewing experts who propose radical defenses to the anticipated alien invasion.
CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing is now fully democratized. A school kid can do it, and black market tech serves any need or desire. This new tech creates widespread medical benefits to humanity, including age engineering and human-machine interfaces for direct brain-to-computer processing.
At the same time, humans are quickly diverging. Transhuman / posthuman hybrids or ‘varints’ are increasing in numbers. Some sport new appendages, sense organs, or animal traits, while others have integrated interfaces to AI clouds or use extensive human robotics.
These rapid changes leave many non-hybrids fearful and concerned – and the threat of an alien attack whips everyone further into a frenzy. Competing human and hybrid voices are jockeying to push their own solutions, and nobody wants to play nice in the new dystopian sandbox.
A volatile cocktail of anger and fear erupts in a divergent world gone mad from an expected alien apocalypse – and as the crew completes each interview, their podcasts seem to be adding to the hysteria. Sure, their notoriety is growing, but somebody wants to stop them from doing the next podcast, even if it means death.
If you enjoy envisioning the social and scientific impact of gene engineering, anti-aging, and artificial intelligence, then you’ll love this apocalyptic serial.
5 Stars***** Imminent Future, or Imminent Extinction? A fascinating leap into the imminent future…when Genetic Engineering and Genetic Modification have advanced astronomically (Goodreads Review/The Wasting).
Being one of the highest ranking members of an anti-terrorist organization called Luxarx, Kaleth assumes he knows everything there is to know about the organization, and their most prominent foe, the Umbra.
He is proven wrong, however, after a chance encounter with one of their supposed enemies. The Umbra in question isn’t violent or threatening—he’s just scared. And he makes Kaleth start to question everything he has been told by his superiors.
Kaleth decides to investigate this oddity, but to get to the bottom of this, he needs help from someone outside of the organization—he doesn’t trust the agents outside of his team not to betray him. Enter Nef, a brother of one of Kaleth’s coworkers, who knows his way around computer security—something Kaleth sorely needs to be able to break into Luxarx’s most secret database.
But instead of simply finding out what is going on at Luxarx, Kaleth ends up discovering an ancient secret involving his country, his government, and even his own existence.

When gifted young doctor Ambrosia Severn takes a beach vacation to California to go treasure hunting, she is pleasantly surprised to see a naked man walking out of the surf.
Niven, the man whose excellent collection of limbs and musculature Amy clinically evaluated and shrugged, explains calmly that someone is trying to kill her. He is a descendant of star-lords stranded on Earth thousands of years ago, and vows to protect sceptical Amy, and discover who’s trying to kill her—before it’s too late. Amy has only one question: Why? Niven has none…because he’s watched her secretly for 15 years and needs to deal with a forbidden attraction to the woman he’s bound to keep safe. Especially when the would-be assassin is his betrothed.
The Prisoners of Illusion – Book 2
The danger is far from over. If anything, now Amy stands even more to lose—her children.
Ambrosia Severn is a talented young orthopedic surgeon, and was about to branch off in an exciting new direction in the field of limb replacement, when she made that one fateful mistake—she took a seacoast vacation. The man who had watched her for fifteen years made sure she was dead—but only to the world. Niven is a descendant of Quen star-lords stranded on Earth thousands of years ago. His original mission directive was simple: Protect the beautiful and talented young doctor. He re-wrote the script according to his heart’s desire and today Amy is very much alive among the people whose ancestors came down from the stars.
She is grateful to Niven’s kinfolk for offering her refuge when she most needed it, but she also thinks they’ve been hiding their homeland long enough. Especially now, when Niven’s two sons keep her busy, she doesn’t want them to grow up in the isolation of the elite island society. However, there is a difference between a measured exposure of the Island, and ripping off its cloaking screen. But that’s precisely what Persis, the ruthless siren wants to do—and in the process destroy the world that’s hosted her ancestors.

For those who hunt for the very best of the LitRPG genre, an impossible to miss new explosive release sure to catch the eye of all the fans of The Land and Awaken Online! Stan, also known as Mongoose, is an extreme traceur and a freerunner, whose real-life talents attracted the attention of The Steel Hounds, the most notorious and private clan of the virtual world of Artar, famous for serving the grey cardinal. While the political landscape for this new world is yet to form, intrigues, conspiracy, daring raids, and sabotage are the main weapons of the Hounds, and his evaluation has just begun.
To complete it successfully and become a full-fledged member of the clan, Stan will have to adapt to working side-by-side with the most unique people with shady backgrounds — even if he is not a team player by nature and has already failed at the very beginning by choosing the class least suitable for teamwork: Battle Monk.
Stan is rebellious, free-spirited, and daring. He risks his life every day just to avoid getting bored of the daily grind. Normally, an expelled student has no hope of entering the virtual world of Artar, an expensive online VR project, but when a suspicious organization offers to pay all expenses to let Stan in for a special purpose, Mongoose gets his chance to join the select few. However, to successfully complete his trial, Stan will have to face his main enemy — himself, while finding peace and mastering all five styles of the Battle Monks of Artar.
*** The Steel Hounds is the first book of the highly popular Russian LitRPG series The Chronicles of Artar by Vladimir Vasilenko. The brightest representative of a new wave of Gamelit writers, Vladimir has created the story of Mongoose, a reckless teenager kicked out of college, who has to struggle with following strict discipline and finding inner harmony while traversing the difficult path of a Battle Monk.

About the Book
Flames over Frosthelm is a full stand-alone novel clocking in at just over 120,000 words. Beginning, middle, and end, and no waiting for sequels to find out how the adventure ends (hear that, George R.R.?). There is swordplay, violence, death, and some romance, but the book does not include anything terribly hardcore. Think PG13 or Harry Potter and you’re probably in the right place.
Ever since I started reading the Oz books and Andrew Lang’s fairy tale compendia in elementary school, I have loved fantasy. As I grew as a reader, I branched out into heroic and epic fantasy, starting with tales of heros like Conan and John Carter, set in places like Middle Earth and Witchworld. I also adored comedic fantasy, from Terry Pratchett to Neil Gaiman to a host of others, and my favorite tales were those where young heroes and heroines grew (or were forced) to play a role beyond their station, in many cases learning on the fly and making it up as they went along.
There are so many great authors working now trying out new ideas, pushing the fantasy genre in interesting new directions (some of them full of sparkly vampires or brooding antiheroes with anime hair). Despite all that innovation, it is hard for me to resist the draw of the classics. In this book, I’ve tried to weave together many of my favorite threads from the books of my childhood, to write the kind of book I have always loved reading, both at 13 and at 49. If I’ve succeeded, this story should provide a fun mix of humor and adventure, an introduction to a new world and a few new cultures, with derring-do and jokes along with some solid emotional touches, against a backdrop of a classic fantasy city, bustling with taverns, markets, nobles, politics, religions, thieves, and warriors.
There’s magic, but it’s limited to rare wizards, scholars, and artifacts, not pervasive, and it’s not well understood. Everybody you meet is a human with human goals – no elves, dwarves, dragons, trolls, or Klingons. Although moral complexity is fascinating, and even the best people are not always their best selves, in general I like my good guys good, my bad guys bad, and the stakes high. I hope you do too.
