Atlantis: City of Mages – Blitz

 

 

Sci-fi, Urban fantasy

 

Date Published: Initially published on 12.21.12, revised version 03.02.2021

It was meant to be a place where knowledge could be exchanged peacefully between humans and advanced beings who live among the stars.

It was meant to be a place where amazing feats of science could accelerate the evolution of humankind.

Now, lost and forgotten, the isle drifts aimlessly on the fabric of time and space.

Those who linger on Atlantis use her technology to thieve treasure and fuel the ever-growing greed of the population.

Something powerful has been stolen and Atlantis is now treading close to the waters of karma and fate.

Is it too late to change what has been done?

EXCERPT

Even as one of the last war-raging dragons approached Oberon, he lingered in the vast canyon of his thoughts. She slithered up to him, raised her head and arched her neck, ready to fire. The stream of fire, hotter than magma, shot at him with deadly accuracy.

Oh no, you don’t!” Campanula shouted as she sprinted toward the conflict. The displaced sand shot up with force as she dug her knee in the beach for support. Aiming the hand cannon steadily with both hands, she fired a warning shot across the dragon’s nose.

Though it was just a graze, the pain was searing hot to the dragon, and it had bought Oberon some time to roll out of the way. The dragon had an overprotective mate who butted in, and with his gauntlet, he shoved Campanula so hard that he threw her into a nearby tree. She laid in the cold, wet sand trying to catch the breath that escaped her lungs. The male dragon went in for the kill. Getting up onto his feet, Oberon left his thoughts to save his friend. With all of his might, Oberon summoned strength into his hands, formed an energy blast and launched it at the dragon. The blow sent the dragon into a cluster of ice-glazed trees toward the inland far past Campanula, which was dangerously close to the death. The dragon tumbled out of the trees and landed on his back in the melting snow. He sat there taking a moment to collect himself.

Enough!” Oberon shouted almost as if he was a drunken, old, bitter man. Even his body movements were jerky as he stumbled around. “We didn’t kill your children. Those responsible are dead. Just leave us alone!” He fell to knees out of exhaustion. Campanula rushed to his side.

Campanula knew what his anger really stemmed from. “You can’t give up. Your family is out there. I know it!” Oberon didn’t seem to care what she had to say. He was so worn out that he did a face plant. “Oberon, look, you have got to see this!”

Oberon raised his head, and through sand-covered eyes, he saw a band of rainbow light, almost like the northern lights, fly from Mt. Caspen headed to the shore. Surely it was his wife accompanied by the Bennu. From his left, there came a bright white flash. When he looked over, he saw his daughter and her friends fall on their butts in the sand.

TEASER

I still remember the fall of the Empire. We didn’t have streets paved with gold nor the fountain of youth, but we had corruption and ill-fated greed. In ignorance, we blamed a traveler for the ruin of our culture, when we should have taken the blame for our own destruction. The traveler was never the destroyer we made her out to be. Instead, she was a much-needed outside voice whispering in our ears. She came to us when we were already deep in an era of decay, which sadly drowned her message below the cries of the community. Juron knew where we were headed, yet he pretended to be like us, blind to the situation. He used the traveler as a scapegoat and we, not fully seeing the picture, clung onto the fearful beliefs of the masses. Now, I openly admit that I was wrong, and to the generations henceforth, I want all to know…I’m sorry, Giséi…I’m sorry.

The Last Book Blitz

 

The Last Book cover

 

Sci-Fi, Time Travel

 

 

Publisher: Cougar WebWorks

The Last Book departs from Thomas Mann’s last, unfinished novel and propels its hero into the speculative waters of time travel, alternative history, and a dystopian future.

When precocious 19th-century con-man Felix Krull is recruited by an astral-traveling presidential candidate, Sophie Vaughan, he embarks on a quest across time to find her and prove his mettle on a world stage. His daredevil joyride through ’70s middle America tests his powers of persuasion and faith in a charmed destiny.

Fast-forwarded to 2036, Felix discovers Sophie caught in a multidimensional struggle between the controlling Hierarchy and the dissident Panarchists. First grappling with a new identity, then tested in his loyalty to Sophie, Felix faces a final showdown for the fate of the world.

Author Share Link

Nowick Gray began writing The Last Book upon finishing Thomas Mann’s last, unfinished novel The Confessions of Felix Krull, Confidence Man—determined to follow where the precocious con-man led. Nowick has published over dozen books of genre-bending fiction and creative nonfiction, exploring the edges of reality and illusion, choice and manifestation. He makes his home on Salt Spring Island, BC, where he also works as a copyeditor and enjoys hiking, kayaking, and playing African drums.

Junker Blues Passage

 

If it’s from Junker BluesMars, on the last page, “I’ll try not to, Spider. Stay out of my head. And by the way, the ship’s name is Junker Blues.

 

If you mean favorite ever, it’s from Mostly Human. “To him, I was easy to pay off and silence, someone who’d do what is told for the right price. To him, I’m only mostly human.”

About the Author

Always been a fan of science fiction and fantasy. Been writing it for years and will until I am have been lowered into the ground. My first novel, “Mostly Human,” has been in my head and on paper for years. There are more stories of 4Pollack and working on the next one as fast as I can. Also, I have spread my areas into urban fantasy noir with “Janus City,” space Opera with “Blood for the Empress” and even military sci-fi with “I.S.S. Starkiller.” And now, I must go back to my scribblings.

Sci-Fi

Date Published: January 5, 2021

Welcome to Utopia—humanity’s second home for over two centuries. It is a
world controlled by the military and corporations,

waging war with advanced alien races, but 18-year-old Carter Sanders is
about to change the rules of the game.

Freshly conscripted into boot camp, he needs all his brains and ability to
survive skirmishes and develop allies among his fellow-recruits who resent
his privilege. Training exercises in weaponry, close-quarter combat,
strategy and tactics, and missions test his bravery, while female recruits
test his moral fiber in close situations.

When bionic upgrades for soldiers become mandatory, Carter feels he needs
to take a stand. Can he and his mismatched fellow-recruits get their message
about preserving morale through to the top brass? Will they survive sadistic
drill sergeant Banes before they’re sent off to battle giant, scaled Lorgans
on unknown worlds?

 

The Commander – Guardian of Utopia is
the first book in the US version of the epic New Adult military sci-fi
fantasy Omni Legends series.

About the Author

Born and raised in Hesse, Germany, Kevin Groh imagined stories and other
worlds from early childhood on. In elementary school, he concocted stories
to entertain teachers and family. Kevin first visited the US when he was 8
weeks old, returning periodically to see two aunts. He fell in love with the
openness of Americans and the non-judgmental environment that accepted him
for who he was — a gamer and a nerd. Passionate about the English language,
Kevin mastered it by reading, watching movies, playing video games, and
traveling.

After high school, Kevin apprenticed as an industrial clerk, and then
completed a Bachelor’s degree as an industrial engineer with a focus on
electrical engineering. Eventually, he decided to put his own stories on
paper, and by his early 20s, became a sensation in the German sci-fi market.
His Omni Legends book series includes the best-selling subseries, “The
Commander,” “The Black Wanderer,” and “The Shadow Guard.” Kevin was an
Amazon Kindle Select All-Star in sales every month from August to
December

in 2019. The young author is now ready to entertain a US readership looking
for its next page-turner.

When he’s not writing or gaming, Kevin enjoys working out and discussing
philosophical questions with his girlfriend. He also loves recording his
audio books and mastering accents. Russian-accented English is one of his
best. He is a member of the German “Autorenwelt” community of
selfpublishers, as well as “Lovelybooks,” a network for organizing book
clubs and readings.
