To Rule in Hell by B. Michael Stevens

The excellent sequel to The Goddess Gambit was released just under a month ago.

The battle may be over, but the war is just beginning…

Even as the people of the Shanty and the Ziggurat come together to build a new Home, vultures gather, and sinister plots are born.

Amidst the backdrop of an uncertain future, Maya, Jon, and the other guardians set out in search of the Morning Star and the promised salvation hidden within.

When their journey goes awry, Jon and company find themselves at the gates of strange city, where the apparent peace isn’t what it seems. Human men, women, and children are ruled by civilized savages—a King and Queen who are hiding a dark secret an and evil presence from Earth’s ancient past.

The goddess and her guardians must fight for the freedom of the innocent, all while trying not to become that which they despise.

For there are those who reject the notion of serving in Heaven, preferring instead, to rule in Hell.

All Things Huge and Hideous by G. Scott Huggins

The full novel-length version of the hilarious Doctor to Dragons by Scott Huggins is out now, including the orignal short stories and adding many more, so it’s time to revive the theme song!

IF YOU CAN READ THIS, THANK A TEACHER.

IF YOU CAN READ THIS AND YOU HAVEN’T BEEN FED TO THE DRAGON, THANK A VET.

That’s me, Dr. James DeGrande. Fire-lizards deflamed, dire-rats spayed, flea and tick removal a speciality. I’m your local veterinarian, but I’m also a slave of the Dark Lord. I’ve hired a new assistant Harriet, who is almost a witch. I just hope that she can do better than my last assistant who … almost survived.

There’s no more heroes anymore. That’s because they were all fed to the Dark Lord’s pet Dragon after the last War.

It’s not the easiest position from which to make the world a better place, but I might be able to do something about the dragon. If His Darkness’s vampiric Prime Minister doesn’t do something about me first. It’s time to go see my patients, and hope they don’t see me first.

“A rollicking adventure that hits all the right notes.” –Christopher Ruocchio, Award-Winning Author of The Sun Eater Series
