Wild Hare (Bargain Book)

Listed by Kirkus Review as one of the 100 best indy books of 2019.      “The world is coming to an end.”      I pushed the oil rags and cigarette butts off the seat of my friend Arne’s old pickup truck and climbed in. He threw the truck into gear, gunned the engine, and smirked. “What’s the point of being a fairy if you can’t wave a magic wand and get shit done?”
     Yeah, I’m a fairy. No, not that kind.
     I let a half mile of clear-cut rumble past the window while I thought about my crappy mood, contemplating the butchered landscape. Back when I was a kid, I used to enjoy the ride to town because the road wound through a mosaic of wetlands and forest and lakes.
      Mostly gone now: the forest, the marshes around the lakes, the moose.
     Yeah, I’m half-human, half-forest spirit from the wild hare clan–what anthropologists call a trickster–and I live by the wild hare code of “feed, fight, fornicate”; except that’s using the nice word for it.
       Maybe Arne had a point. Maybe I didn’t fight hard enough to better this world I so reluctantly belonged to. After all, my personal life was generally OK, so why get into a brawl about shit I couldn’t change?
       What I didn’t know, as the ruined scenery brushed past, was that my personal life would soon go tits up too, and I’d get pushed into fighting in ways I’d never fought before. Lucky me.

Project Chrysalis: Gestation

cover

If you mix Sword Art Online and The Land, and make them both darker — Project Chrysalis is what you get in this new Gamelit series.
Chrysalis is the project of the century. It’s a hyper-realistic fantasy RPG set in the Middle Ages. Chrysalis is a perfect virtual reality game where every orphan under governmental care is placed in an in-game family to finally obtain all the love and care from the parents which kids need so desperately.

But for one orphan who took part in this program something went horribly wrong.

Instead of a happy childhood, Anji undergoes demonification. Betrayed for the sake of someone else’s master plan, he finds himself in the most hopeless place of Chrysalis: Hell, full of bloodthirsty demons, agony, and despair.
Empowered by homesickness and revenge, Anji’s alter ego Sagie will go through Hell to face those who have taken everything from him. Cruel gods, bloody demons, and game moderators whose purpose is to keep order and safe balance will do their best to stop him on his crusade. The road will be long and gruesome, but blessed are those who struggle.
