Superversive Press made the following announcement earlier today, these deals run out in about 3 hours from now (I was the editor for both of these, and contributor to the second, so receive a share of the royalties from each sale):
You can currently pick up the dystopian science fiction novella The Product by Marina Fontaine in a Kindle Count down sale, proceeds from which go to feed the author as well as help keep Superversive SF alive! The Product is a story that Dragon Award winning author of CTRL ALT Revolt! Nick Cole, said ““Fontaine expertly paints a loveless future where what’s human and what’s real is dangerous and highly illegal. Taut, passionate and compelling, this vignette of a dark future reminds us that we are still human, no matter what laws are passed. A fearless warning for these fear-filled times.”, get it now before the sale is over!
Sci Phi Journal stories and article is available on a Kindle countdown sale as well. Proceeds feed authors and help keep the lights on too as well as giving you a good Sci Phi fix.
The new publishing house Superversive Press has opened its doors, releasing its first book, the dystopian novella THE PRODUCT, by the head of the Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance Marina Fontaine. She knows from personal experience what it is like to live under an oppressive regime, adding authenticity to a disturbing possible future. It is a story of beauty among dehumanising ugliness, hope in the midst of crushing despair, kindness in the midst of heartless cruelty, love in the midst of mindless hatred and apathy.
I must admit my personal stake in this work – I was the editor of this story, and I hope that my efforts in working with Marina on this book have made it an even more enjoyable and worthwhile read. As such I get a percentage of the royalties from each sale, so in buying a copy you will also be supporting me and a new publishing house with a worthy goal.
The Product will change your life. It will give you joy and confidence, make you more aware of the world around you. You will find new friends. You might even fall in love.
Few people know its name. Fewer still dare say it. It is, after all, illegal. Users are jailed. Dealers meet an ugly death. Yet the temptation is irresistible.
Kevin is a dealer. And he is about to get caught.
Now available at Amazon both as an ebook and in paperback.
Dragon-award-nominee Marina Fontaine, up high in the echelons of the Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance, had some very kind words to say about both of my novels, highly recommending both and mentioning them in the same breath as the works of the great masters C.S. Lewis and John C. Wright.
To say I am flattered to be mentioned in this way would be a great understatement, it was Lewis who first fired my literary imagination, whose works I have read more of than any other author, and it was his type of literature that I was consciously trying to hark back to when I wrote Nobility Among Us. John C. Wright is of course a major influence in Beyond the Mist, the plot being based on some of his philosophical essays, among other things.
You can read for yourself what she had to say over here:
The 99 cent deal on both books (and on Selected Verse: Heroes and Wonders) is still running for another day and a half, so take the opportunity to take a look for yourself for less.
