AISFP 157 – EDGE Books: Brian Hades, Nancy Kilpatrick, Barb Galler-Smith, Erika Holt and more.

This episode is brought to you by MAYAN DECEMBER, the exciting new fantasy novel from Brenda Cooper, and by WOLF DAWN, a science fiction novel by Susan Cartwright reminiscent of ENDER’S GAME and DUNE.

Dr. Alice Cameron is a famous scientist devoted to studying ancient Mayan culture. In December 2012 she finds herself on the Yucatan Peninsula with her daughter, Nixie, fellow scholars, end of the world crazies, and even the President of the United States. It all sounds wonderful until Nixie disappears into the past. MAYAN DECEMBER  is a time traveling fantasy yarn you don’t want to miss!

Ashton Chayton was born with a powerful gift, a unique inhuman ability. Orphaned, raised by the Red Wolves of Opan, captured and enslaved – he is now free and on the run. Unfortunately everybody wants Ashton. Admiral Jones will torture him to get the secret of his power. Lady Lindha feels he is “The One” as named in Temple prophecy. The influential Lord Andros just wants him dead.  Ashton only wants two things: revenge, and the Lady Lindha. If you had unique powers, wouldn’t you use them to get what you want?

  1. My apologies to Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Sheila Williams. I misspoke. The Diving stories first appeared in Asimovs.

  2. Hey Bryan,

    Any chance we can get that list of books you talked about? Some of them sound really interesting, but I had trouble getting the titles and/or author names. Thanks!

  4. Hello, Chris:

    The books I was talking about were the Sherlock Holmes Gaslight books from EDGE. They include Gaslight Grimoire, Gaslight Grotesque, and Gaslight Arcanum. More information at the Edge website: http://www.edgewebsite.com/

    I also mentioned my novels in the Veins Cycle from Fantasist Enterprises. More information here: http://fantasistent.com/shop/fantasy-books/

    Hope this helps.

  5. Chris, Sid got the right link. The list is on my blog. Lawrence’s Gaslight books are interesting. I have one in my TBR pile. If you like Holmes, they sound like must reads. Check them out!
