Okay, the top two books are mine and you should definitely buy them first. However, the bottom three are excellent horror anthologies done extremely well by Darkwater Syndicate, Inc. (my beloved publisher). So, if you still have a few bucks in your pocket after you, ahem, buy BOTH of mine, then do yourself a favor - grab one of theirs! But beware...you may lose a finger.
A Moon Called Sun
“A Moon Called Sun is intriguingly different science fiction/fantasy/horror, wildly ranging, sometimes hard-hitting, not for maiden aunts. Well told, with a considerable range of imagination!" ~Piers Anthony, New York Times bestselling author
A botched alien abduction sends modern-day Trace Jackson to north Florida in the year 1818, where he meets a beautiful Seminole woman, and the two strike up a relationship. Unfortunately, Trace’s distant ancestor, General Andrew Jackson, is hell-bent on driving out the Seminoles by whatever means necessary. Meanwhile, Josette Legard is transported from World War II-era France to fight an interstellar war. Her new "allies" have offered Josette her heart's desire—the chance to live during the Italian Renaissance—but Josette questions whether her trust in them is misplaced. Can they survive to fulfill their destinies in another dimension where time no longer has meaning, on a moon called Sun?

The Slant Six
"I read The Slant Six by Christopher F Cobb. This is a wild one! Few things are quite what they seem. If you want a story that really is different, this is your ticket!" ~Piers Anthony, New York Times bestselling author
The year is 2252 and Loman Phin is in trouble. A washed-up channelship racer turned freelancer, he hits pay dirt with his latest mission: a fortune is on the line if he can transport forty-three kilograms of human skin to a remote villa on Pluto's moon, Nix. Little does he know his very life is at stake when he gets caught up in an ancient feud, chased by a space vampire, and forced into a death-race by the king of Ceres. Meanwhile, danger is always hot on his heels in the form of a massive space freighter out for Loman's blood. With just his wits, his friends, and his beat-up cruiser, the Slant Six, Loman sets out on the most dangerous adventure of his life.

Postcards From The Void
"An exquisitely powerful anthology... gripping scenarios that are hard to put down and unforgettable literary productions." ~Midwest Book Review
From the creative team behind the award-winning Shadows And Teeth horror series comes a reality-bending anthology that combines eerie vintage photos with terrifying stories. The places in this book are shunned, abandoned and forgotten. They do not exist, and yet here you will find the stories of people who have gone and survived to tell their tales, complete with photographs. These are the postcards from the void, frightful evidence of places that should not be, and yet exist in our nightmares. Should you dare to venture into these blighted places, remember: don't talk to strangers; don't stray far from home; and never, ever go in alone.
