War is looming… Get your tickets now.
Imagine a world where battles between professional armies are fought in front of live audiences. Instead of pro sports and reality TV, the world is obsessed with watching war. International conflicts are a thing of the past, unemployment is nearly nonexistent, and economies are booming.
Everyone has a part to play in this new industry. There’s Ranger Monroe, the dashing captain of the Army of Liberty. And Salvatore Caracas, a military recruiter who’s wickedly good at his job. Oh, and don’t forget Jody, a domestic terrorist who livestreams his attacks. And many, many more, all cogs in the war machine.
Yes, when violence is a commodity and spectatorship is prioritized, anything goes.
Coyote Jim, a shapeshifter, takes off in search of a new home.
In a post-climate change dystopian future, Coyote, the guardian spirit of a desert valley in Nevada, is forced out of his home by the heat, the drought, and the deaths of his friends. He hits the road on a journey through the Pacific Northwest, looking for new home. Along the way he discovers a new purpose for his existence.
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.
Meet Laura Koerber
My husband and I share our home on an island with our dogs and our cat. I am retired and volunteer daily at a sanctuary for unadoptable cats. I write books that combine the harsher aspects of reality with fantasy, set either in the near future or the near past.
Light is currency, light is big business on Gliese 581g, the last remaining colony of the human race.
Severum Rivenshear hunts those who steal it in the form of fireflies, just to have enough light to live by. He works in the icy, eternally dark hemisphere of Evig Natt, the sun an absent deity. The rest of the world pursues every pleasure beneath a sun that never sleeps.
Thalassa Latimer will rotate the tidal-locked planet faster, or die trying. Dedicated to bringing light to everyone, rich and poor alike, she will stop at nothing to achieve her goal, even if it means destroying the environment and toppling the economy.
