Dude Ranch Nurse by Arlene Hale

Dude Ranch Nurse by Arlene Hale

Dude Ranch Nurse by Arlene Hale

AMAZON KINDLE | FICTIONWISE

It would have been simple for Jan to stay there in Jackson City, to work at General Hospital in Monroe, to settle down to two dates a week with Tom and an eventual marriage, to fall into a dull, humdrum routine. It would have been safe, secure. But no, she had to chase her rainbows and satisfy her dreams and search for that elusive thing called happiness. So Jan Gordon came to Deer River, with its dude ranches deep in the Rockies, in order to thrust aside all the unpleasant memories of the past and rediscover herself. But Jan found that as a nurse and as a woman, she couldn’t turn her back on conflict. There were two young doctors in Deer River; Jan owed loyalty to both. To Dr. Coe, Jan was bound by her conscience, but it was Dr. Noel Lester who held her heart. Nurse Jan suddenly felt happy and lighthearted as she drove young Dr. Noel Lester home. Her doubts about coming to Deer River to work for the summer began to disappear. He is nicer than I thought he would be, she thought, as they pulled up in front of the house. Helping her out of the car, he took her hand. “Come in and have dinner with me,” he said. She had not hoped for this much, but she knew she wanted to stay with him. Perhaps it was all a reaction to the things that had been happening to her. Noel Lester was exciting. Handsome. The unknown. She had come here looking for something. Happiness. Love. Fulfillment. Who was to say that it wasn’t right here in Noel’s outstretched hand?

New Releases–John D. MacDonald & Fletcher Flora

Two new releases from WPG (Wonder Publishing Group). I love these covers and had a lot of fun designing them. Both writers are best known as mystery writers, but John D. MacDonald wrote a lot of Science Fiction back in the 50s. This new collection reprints many of his stories for the first time.

FICTIONWISE | AMAZON KINDLE

Martin Rhode, a distinguished soldier of one of Earth’s warring states, has been unwittingly captured by aliens after innocently exploring a hole caused by what was perceived to be enemy warfare. As it turns out, the aliens are being pursued by natives of an enemy planet and they have sought refuge on Earth. They do not plan on staying long, however, but actually intend to lure their rivals in so that they may all be destroyed along with everyone else on the planet, by a special weapon they are at that moment creating. Martin Rhode appeals to the aliens, and they allow him to send a warning to all Earth people that it will soon be the end of the world. At first disbelieving, warring states and individuals afterwards realize their mistakes and immediately reconcile with each other, and make plans on solving the imminent problem that they face–that of expelling the alien presence in their midst! Also includes the stories: ALL OUR YESTERDAYS, DELUSION DRIVE, THE GREAT STONE DEATH, MINION OF CHAOS, COMMON DENOMINATOR, THE MINIATURE

Jackie Brand is a small-time middleweight boxing professional just barely trying to make ends meet. The week before a fight with one of Jay Paley’s boys, he comes home to his wife Peg daydreaming again about her much-coveted motor court out on Highway 66, and guiltily he goes out to have a drink. At the bar, he is met by the competition’s manager, and the latter makes a proposal: lose the fight and get paid ten thousand dollars. The amount would actually cover the downpayment for Peg’s house, so Jackie decides to accept the offer. But what price will it cost him? Also includes the stories: SHE ASKED FOR IT, POINTS SOUTH

Fletcher Flora (1914-1968) wrote various “sensational” stories during the 40’s and 50’s. Flora started writing right at the end of the pulp era, for magazines like ‘Dime Detective’. Then he moved on to do some 60 stories for the digests (Pursuit, EQMM, Suspect, etc). His mystery output includes over sixty short stories and sixteen novels. The Hot Shot and Strange Sisters are among his credits.

Powder Burn by Bradford Scott

Powder Burn by Bradford Scott

FICTIONWISE | AMAZON KINDLE

DOUBLE DANGER for Walt Slade, undercover ace lieutenant of the Texas Rangers. He is the man most feared by the owlhoots and drygulchers of the old Texas Border. The sight of this tall lawman with the lightning-fast draw astride his great black horse, Shadow, symbolizes defense of the innocent and the end of reckless careers of lawlessness. Walt Slade trailed a killer from Texas through Mexico, all the way to Tombstone, Arizona–only to find the owlhoot riding at his back. And when he turned to face him he found he was not only up against his prey, but also in a showdown with Wyatt Earp, most famous marshal in the West. Slade had to get his man, but first he had to face death at the hands of Wyatt Earp.

“There’s one man I wouldn’t want to cross!” So said Wyatt Earp after his first meeting with Walt Slade. He didn’t know that he had just threatened the undercover ace of the Texas Rangers, but he realized that he had faced a gunfighter without a flaw, a two-gun killer with perfect coordination of hand and eye and a clear, cold, hairtrigger brain. At that moment Earp knew that Tombstone wasn’t big enough to hold both of them–alive!

New Releases–Poul Anderson, Evan Hunter & Fredric Brown

Three new eBooks from Wonder Publishing Group. I really like the art on these covers. But I’m the designer so I might be biased.

The High Ones and Other Stories by Poul Anderson

The High Ones and Other Stories by Poul Anderson

FICTIONWISE | AMAZON KINDLE

THE HIGH ONES AND OTHER STORIES by POUL ANDERSON

Now was Eben Holbrook’s chance to play hero—and win his lady love.
Eben Holbrook was not much of a spaceman; he was just a simple nucleonics engineer, not even close to being a scientist. Yet a rare burst of inspiration on his part was what saved them from harm … or maybe just the thought that his dear Ekaterina was in danger.
After having landed on a planet which had the makings of a new Earth, Rurik’s troop discovered that someone else beat them to it. The Zolotoyans—a more highly intelligent race—started an arbitrary attack, which forced an investigation into the reason for their hostility.
Holbrook, Ekaterina and Grushenko were assigned to the task, and set out for Zolotoy. Much to their surprise, the natives did not attack them once they landed; in fact, they seemed altogether indifferent to their guests’ presence, though they were required to stay indefinitely. Holbrook knew that the atmosphere and environment weren’t conducive for humans, and sought immediately to escape, but Grushenko insisted on trying to reason with the Zolotoyans no matter what the cost.

From a Science Fiction Grand Master comes ten exciting stories from the 1950s. Over 100,000 words of the future from the past.

Also includes the stories: OUT OF THE IRON WOMB!, TURNING POINT, THE APPRENTICE WOBBLER, STAR SHIP, THE CORKSCREW OF SPACE, LORD OF A THOUSAND SUNS, THE SOLDIER FROM THE STARS, SWORDSMAN OF LOST TERRA, THE CHAPTER ENDS

Woman's World and Other Stories by Evan Hunter

Woman's World and Other Stories by Evan Hunter

FICTIONWISE | AMAZON KINDLE

WOMAN’S WORLD AND OTHER STORIES by EVAN HUNTER

Classic Science Fiction from the 1950s by S.A. Lombino who most famously wrote under the pen names Evan Hunter and Ed McBain.

Damion couldn’t believe his eyes—the universe’s most beautiful women in one single planet, and they were all GIANTS!
But he shouldn’t let that fact overwhelm nor deter him. That trip to planet Krinn was crucial—their alliance to the Federation would mean the alliance of all other planets left in the System. He would have to find a way to somehow convince the beautiful Queen Alidia that being a member of the Federation will be to her kingdom’s best interests.
Together with his long-time partner and friend, Konars, they formulate an agenda that at first glance seems devious, except that the tables are turned on them. For a lot of what happens next aren’t part of the original plan: becoming the Giant Queen’s court jester, war between the larger females and the relatively smaller males, the Daxonians’ involvement—and falling in love.

Also contains the stories: THE PLAGIARIST FROM RIGEL IV, SILENT PARTNER, and A PLANET NAMED JOE

The Jewels of Aptor by Samuel R. Delaney

The Jewels of Aptor by Samuel R. Delaney

QUEST AMID FUTURITY’S RUINS What was the strange impetus that drove a group of four widely different humans to embark on a fear-filled journey across a forbidden sea to a legendary land? This was Earth still, but the Earth of a future terribly changed after a planet-searing disaster, a planet of weird cults, mutated beasts, and people who were not always entirely human. As for the four who made up that questing party, they included a woman who was either a goddess, a witch, or both, a four-armed boy whose humanity was open to question, and two more men with equally “wild” talents. The story of their voyage, of the power-wielding “jewels” they sought, of the atomic and post-atomic terrors they encountered, is a remarkable science-fiction Odyssey of the days to come.

For the truth was that Gabe Lockard wanted his body back.

2010 Goal – 100 New eBook Titles

A new year and new goals for 2010. The top thing on my list is to publish 100 eBook titles this year. That’s two a week, so you can expect to see two new releases every week. That’s pretty ambitious since this is basically a two person operation, working part-time at that (actually working a full-time job in addition to WPG is more accurate).  There is me and my wonderful freelancing proofreader (Hi, Junelle!). Why are we called Wonder Publishing Group if there’s only two people? WPG started as Wonder Audiobooks, then we started publishing eBooks, and print books; so you see, there’s a whole group of kinds of books. And speaking of print books and audiobooks, there will be more of those published this year as well.

There hasn’t been many posting here of late. But that was because I had to jump-start the year with getting a lot of titles going in the pipeline. You’ll be seeing a new release posting here tomorrow. Here are some of the titles coming out within the next month:

Death Quotient and Other Stories by John D. MacDonald – Several Science Fiction stories, many before reprinted.

The High Ones and Other Stories by Poul Anderson – Other 100,000 word anthology of 10 great SF stories from the 1950s. I’m planning on releasing a print book version of this title as well.

Double for Death by Rex Stout- A novel by Rex Stout, people. In fact he called it his favorite mystery.

Woman’s World and Other Stories by Evan Hunter – Four great SF stories from this mystery and SF master. BTW, Just watched the movie, The Blackboard Jungle, today. It’s based on Evan Hunter’s novel of the same name. What a great movie. Vic Morrow’s character really scared me.

That’s just a few of the titles in the works. Isn’t this exciting?

And I don’t like to do a posting without a visual. Here’s another future release. Sometimes a cover comes out a little more special than the rest. This one I tried something slightly new visually (new for me, that is). Compare the re-purposed art from the WPG cover to the original from Imagination. The new thing I tried was not erasing the sign behind the lady’s head, but cropping the hand and gun so it looks like it coming out of the picture frame. The art is by Lloyd N. Rognan.

At the back of his mind, Goddard’s Acting Commander, Jerry Blane, knew it was bound to happen sooner or later, but he never expected he’d have to blast the enemy under these circumstances: the establishment of friendly–even helpful–relations with their Russian counterpart, the Tsiolkovsky. So when faced with the decision to save his life and his crew by demolishing the Russian spaceship, he made a choice that would foster revolutionary mindsets and alter global history.

They all spell confidence man. Hell–they all spell me, Joe Marlin. But then, by any other name I’d smell as sweet to bored women on the prowl–rich ladies with their baby blues tight shut and their pocketbooks wide open. That was my game–devil-may-care conning, fly-by-night living, skipped checks at plush hotels, fleeced suckers wherever I could make a touch, a well developed string of aliases. A great old life–the rolling stone gathering no moss, just the green stuff that counts. Then I met Mona–and fell like a ton of bricks, like some legendary lover ready to fight demons and dragons. Beautiful, wicked Mona–the girl who gave me a dream of a rose-covered cottage, and straight arrow living–and a nightmare involving the biggest clipping of them all–murder!
