Prepping Free eBooks

I told myself today is the day I have to get back to blogging so here I am. Don’t you love when you got a lot of open projects and you’re being pulled in a million directions? Actually it’s not that bad. I’m not whining, honest. But I tend to let the blogging go by the wayside and concentrate on other stuff. But no more. At least I hope. Since I haven’t done an update in awhile I’ve got a lot of newsy things and share with you about what Wonder eBooks have been up to. But that would take one massive blog entry. So instead I’ll tell about what I’m about to work on.

SFFaudio.com does an annual challenge for every day people (yes, like you) to create an audiobook. SFFaudio’s editor, Jesse Willis, asked me if I had any stories that I could send his way. I was happy to oblige. So as soon I publish this I’m going to get them ready. The stories will be available in EPUB and PDF formats. Here are the titles:

Defense Mech by Ray Bradbury (from The Lost Bradbury: Forgotten Tales by Ray Bradbury)
The Green Girl by Jack Williamson
Daughters of Earth by Judith Merrill (From the Shrine of Temptation and Other Stories)
See You at the Morgue by Lawrence Blochman

 

New Release – The Forgotten Planet by Murray Leinster

One new eBook this week from Wonder Publishing Group by Science Fiction legend, Murray Leinster.  Here’s an excerpt from the wikipedia entry for this novel, The Forgotten Planet:

The “forgotten” planet had been seeded for life, first with microbes and later with plants and insects. A third expedition, intended to complete the seeding with animals, never occurred. Over the millennia the insects and plants grew to gigantic sizes. The action of the novel describes the fight for survival by descendants of a crashed spaceship as they battle wolf-sized ants, flies the size of chickens, and gigantic flying wasps.

The Forgotten Planet by Murray Leinster

The Forgotten Planet by Murray Leinster

NATURE’S MISLAID MADHOUSE! Beneath dense gray clouds through which no sun shone lay a forgotten planet. It was a nightmare world of grotesque and terrifying animal-plant life. Gigantic beetles, spiders, bugs and ants filled the putrid, musty earth–ready to kill and devour anything in sight. There were men amidst this horror–men who cringed and ran from the ravening monsters and huddled in the mushroom forests at night. Burl was one of these creatures. But one day inspira-tion hit Burl. He would find a weapon–he would fight back. And with this idea the first step was taken in man’s most desperate flight for freedom in this most horrible of all worlds. But it was only a first step.

Bodies in Bedlam by Richard S. Prather

Shell Scott was up to his neck in guns, girls and gore. Constanza Carmocha was unarmed–that is, she didn’t have a gun. She didn’t need one, either. She had all the weapons that have ruined men from time immemorial–or time immoral. One man had had his throat slit because of her, another was going to die. She was surrounded by a guy who resembled a shaved ape and looked as though he could pick himself up with one hand. But the hand isn’t always quicker than the private eye, and as sure as my name’s Shell Scott, I’ll get to the bottom of this affair with the deadly dame.

Woman of Fire by Peggy Gaddis

It was after ten when she and Clem left the party … He said, a trifle thickly, “Where to? I haven’t any idea where you live. ” Viola slid close to him and lifted her face until her lips were against his ear. She spoke straight from her wildly beating heart, “Take me home with you. Please–please take me home with you”. His arms encircled her … “Sure, why not? Why the devil not? ” He leaned forward, gave the taxi-driver his address and turned to pull Viola’s trembling body hard against him. He covered her lips with his … Viola Barton thought that she could throw away her heart, deny her son his true father, and make a life for herself without the ecstasy of a young man’s love. She married Eugene, old and dying and passionless … and then found that there are wellsprings in a woman’s soul which cannot be stifled or denied There was room in her thoughts only for Clem … here beside her …

New Releases–3 New Audiobook & 3 New eBooks!

Wonder Publishing Group is marching onward and upward with an impressive list of authors and titles for this week’s new releases: Philip K. Dick, Andre Norton, Jack Vance, William Tenn, Ray Bradbury, Leigh Brackett, and Day Keene. Are you kidding me? That’s a galaxy of stars 😉

New Audiobook Releases:

The Men Return & Worlds of Origin
By Jack Vance; Read by Tim Rowe
1 hr, 10 min.- [UNABRIDGED]

Available at Audible

Two vintage stories from the 1950s by science-fiction Grand Master Jack Vance, who wrote stories of adventure, detection, horror, and humor.

What the Critics Say:

“‘Worlds of Origin’: A mystery novel and a fine example of Vance’s trademark imagination with worlds and customs of alien origin. No less than a dozen wholly unique Vance worlds come to light during Magnus Ridolphs’ inquiry into the mysterious death of a man on a space-station retreat. ‘The Men Return’: [A] completely alien earth where our universal rule of cause and effect no longer has any meaning and only the insane flourish in the new dynamics.” (Amazon reviewer “Coriolous”)

The Defenders
By Philip K. Dick; Read by Mark Douglas Nelson
61 min.- [UNABRIDGED]

Available at Audible

Taylor felt life was pretty good. Sure, living in an underground bunker developing more sophisticated weapons to bomb the Soviets was less than ideal. But he had a pretty wife, and he was safe from the radioactive poisoned environment that existed above ground. The leadies, sophisticated robot servants, could inform them of the devastating destruction, the bombed out cities, and the further Soviet attacks. But it was a strange fact that the latest leadie to return to the bunker showed no sign of radioactivity. Strange enough for Taylor to be ordered above ground in a lead-lined suit to investigate. That Taylor didn’t want to go, wasn’t really an option!

People of the Crater
By Andre Norton; Read by Mark Douglas Nelson
1hr, 44min.- [UNABRIDGED]

Available at Audible

A flight to a lost world of Antarctica. Garin Featherstone has been sent to explore a mysterious blue haze that was spotted in the polar region. There he discovers a lost civilization and a strange environment of vivid green lands, crimson tree trunks, and golden rivers. He must save Thrala of the light against the lizard men.

This is Andre Norton’s first professional published story from 1947. Even the Grand Dame of science fiction had to have her first sale. And she shows her strengths in her first fantastic adventure story.

But now it looked like he was going to pay the ultimate price for his misdeeds. But fate had a strange twist on Starke’s life when he woke up in a different body. A body that was strong and powerful. In a body of a Venusian barbarian named Conan. But was Starke anything more than a puppet in this new body? For he soon found out the strings were being pulled by the beautiful, but terrible, Rann.

Ferron was big, tough and ruthless–he’d break your arm as soon as look at you. He had the morals of a tomcat and the instincts of a rattlesnake. But Ferron was sitting pretty. In New York City he had Lydia –a gorgeous redhead who loved him to distraction. Upstate he had Amy–lovely, virginal and wealthy; she could hardly wait till they were married. In the trunk of his battered car he had one hundred thousand dollars. –And he had literally gotten away with murder! Ferron was very lucky. Then his world started to come apart at the seams with shattering suddenness …

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

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

GATEWAY TO DARKNESS by FREDRIC BROWN

Crag was a no good drunk and deviant, now facing life in prison. But the good judge Jon Olliver offers him his freedom—plus a million credits!—in exchange for a small favor: steal a harmless tool from a rich scientist in Mars. Crag suspects a catch, but he finds it so hard to resist … especially when he knows that Olliver’s beautiful wife, Evadne, will be joining them in the adventure!

A great 1940s novella from a master of the form.

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.

The real Gabe Lockard was a wanderer, a dutchman–a zarquil addict, who regularly plays the galaxy’s most dangerous tournament just to be encased in another man’s anatomy. But even that was a lie. For the truth was that Gabe Lockard wanted his body back. He followed it to the ends of the earth and outer space, playing zarquil to exchange dying bodies for new ones, just so he can make sure no harm comes to it. And so that, when the right moment comes, he can maneuver the impostor into joining him for another deadly game– Also contains the stories, BODYGUARD, MAN’S BEST FRIEND, WOMAN’S TOUCH, THE MAN OUTSIDE, ONCE A GREECH, TERAGRAM

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.
