The Doomsday Vault

New Science Officer novella from Blaze Ward, generally available August 10th!

It seemed like a legitimate heist when someone hired Storm Gauntlet and her crew to go hijack some cargo. Pirate ships did that sort of thing.

However, whoever hired them didn’t count on the Science Officer’s sneakiness. Paranoia. Whatever.

The situation didn’t make sense. No one would deliver cargo to a dead planet. It had to be a trap. Someone had set them up.

But who? And why?

The Doomsday Vault follows the adventures of Javier Aritza, Suvi, and the rest of the crew of Storm Gauntlet in a story with unexpected twists, as well as surprising consequences.

This is the fifth novella in the Science Officer series, and the beginning of the mini-series, “War of the Pirate Clans”, to be continued in the next novella, The Last Flagship.

Part of the Alexandria Station universe.

Much more.

Join Javier Aritza, a sarcastic and quirky hero, in the first four novellas of the Science Officer, a fast-paced, action-packed science fiction series.

The Harps of the Six Kingdoms

Jacob’s wife died in childbirth.

She shouldn’t have.

But magic exists only in the land of the Six Kingdoms. Not on the mainland where Jacobs lives. No healer could save his wife.

What can Jacob, a simple boot maker, do to address such inequality? Or Zara, a girl raised in the streets? Or Brother Isadore, the priest behind a grand plan to change everything?

Lush detail, wildly-creative magic, and a page-turning ending, make this dark, epic fantasy a tale for all ages, with something for every fantasy reader.

Available August 22nd at your favorite retailers.


The Fairy Boy-Band

Oswald just wants to enjoy the peace and quiet of his suburban home.

But he can’t. Not with the stupid fairies playing music in his backyard.

Every. Single. Night.

But what can a poor human do? He agreed to the arrangement. The home owners association papers had spelled the time-share out quite clearly.

Still, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Particularly when dealing with a fairy boy-band.

Alternative Truths

Alternative Truths is a look at the post-election America that is, or will be, or could be. We attach no manacles to the word truth to bind it to our visions. Instead we free it to find its own way through the minds of the two dozen writers who have shared their vision of the future in either sensitively written allegorical tales such as Relics by Louise Marley, a woman who grew up bucking hay in Montana and moved on to a talented musical performer and successful novelist; or the raw humor of Adam Troy-Castro in his Q & A, which takes on the verbal veracity of Donald J. Trump.

Jim Wright (of Stonekettle Station) imagines Trump giving the Gettysburg Address. Blaze Ward, Daniel Kimmel, Janka Hobbs and I explore dystopias. Marleen Barr and Adam Troy-Castro envision humorous, kinky, and scatological endings. What can I say? It rocks.

Available at Amazon.

Be sure to enjoy the other books in The Science Officer series: The Science Officer, The Mind Field, and The Gilded Cage. Part of the Alexandria Station universe.
