Book Discovery - newly-published and overlooked books!
CLONES: The Anthology, by Rysa Walker
Human cloning. 
Technology evolves faster than we do. 
The law shields us from our worst temptations.
But the opportunity is there, dangling just out of reach—perfection and ascension… or delusion and destruction.
 
In this collection of clone-themed stories, ten of today’s top speculative fiction writers explore our morality, our built-in societal restraints, and reflect upon our state of grace.
 
Similar is not necessarily the same.
 
“CLONES: The Anthology” features stories from Amazon bestselling authors Rysa Walker (the Chronos series), R.D. Brady (the Belial series), Susan Kaye Quinn (the Singularity saga), Best American Science Fiction notable Samuel Peralta (Faith)...
                     
The Best Bad Day, by T. R. Calais
Helena may be tough, but so is her luck. Especially one terrible Thursday afternoon when the high-class, high-powered executive loses her way, her car keys, and to top (or bottom) it all off, her pants. Stranded and exposed in the worst possible way, headstrong-turned-helpless Helena is reduced to needing a ride home...from none other than the brawny, tattooed construction worker she fired a month before.

He should be filled with resentment at how she treated him, yet he comes to her aid instead. Was her snap judgement wrong, and there's something more to the man's rough, intimidating (and perilously handsome) exterior? Or is Helena presenting him with the perfect opportunity to score some payback?

It's been one of...

Al Capone's Ghost, by Alan Ford
Eddie Madison had just moved into his new house when the ghost of Al Capone shot into his living room.
Would Al be a bad influence on Casey, his ten-year-old son? Would he be an immoral challenge to Kate, his social worker wife? And what about Eddie.? Would he begin to change his world view under Al's malign influence?
What did Al want?
Whatever it was, Eddie thought he could handle him.
But could he?
A satire on social workers, gangsters, bad crime novels, and sex and violence.
Other novels in the series by Alan Ford are Princess Diana's Ghost and Elvis Presley's Ghost....

Too Like the Lightning (Terra Ignota), by Ada Palmer
Mycroft Canner is a convict. For his crimes he is required, as is the custom of the 25th century, to wander the world being as useful as he can to all he meets. Carlyle Foster is a sensayer--a spiritual counselor in a world that has outlawed the public practice of religion, but which also knows that the inner lives of humans cannot be wished away.
The world into which Mycroft and Carlyle have been born is as strange to our 21st-century eyes as ours would be to a native of the 1500s. It is a hard-won utopia built on technologically-generated abundance, and also on complex and mandatory systems of labelling all public writing and speech. What seem to us normal gender distinctions are now distinctly taboo in most social situations. An...
