Dominion by Arthur J. Burks

Dominion by Arthur J. Burks

 

Deep in the heart of South America’s jungles, explorers Leyson and Horton found the source of the fantastic rumors which had been alarming government officials. And the facts they found were stranger than the wildest stories they had heard, for here were a race of metal men, the New People. And here, behind the scenes, was Von Glauber, sworn follower of the swastika, making a madman’s dream come true. For the metal giants had been made to rise and conquer, and have dominion over the entire world! First published in Science Fiction Stories, July 1943

Hostage For A Hood by Lionel White

Hostage For A Hood by Lionel White

 

Every minute she had was borrowed, and every second ticked off the time for murder. Joyce was driving along the deserted avenue. Just ahead on a side street, Cribbins checked the second hand of his watch for the last time. He swung the heavy Cadillac around the corner. He had a rendezvous with an armored car and a quar¬ter of a million dollars; he had a tommy gun to make sure it all went off smoothly. Everything was timed, everything was planned down to the most insignificant detail–except for Joyce Sherwood and her eight-year-old Chevy, which crashed deep into the side, of Cribbins’ stolen car. That’s how they met–the house¬wife and the hoods. And terror took over!

Jobo by Henry Slesar

 

Jobo was picked upon and teased. Not like any other child in the deep woods of Tennessee. They called him a freak, but he was strong and could whoop anybody, if forced to do so. Unfortunately, he may be forced to do so. Meanwhile, John Tilletson was on an expedition of lifetime–to Easter Island! All to prove his unorthodox hypothesis that the giant head sculptures of Easter Island have an extraterrestrial origin. Soon Jobo and John Tilletson’s worlds would collide.

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.
