City of the Living Dead and Other Science Fiction Stories (Halcyon Classics)

City of the Living Dead and Other Science Fiction Stories (Halcyon Classics)

CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD AND OTHER SCIENCE FICTION STORIES includes five entertaining classic science fiction works by noted American scifi pioneer Fletcher Pratt. The title work of this collection, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, is an early look at the perils of a society in which technology has gained an immense power over the everyday lives of the people; virtual reality has blurred the lines between true reality and the virtual world, imperiling the future of humanity.

Murray Fletcher Pratt (1897-1956) was an American writer and historian who wrote during the golden age of science fiction during the 1930s-1950s. He published a number of well-received and groundbreaking works of science fiction, including several collaborations with L. Sprague de Camp. He was also a writer of naval and Civil War history.

Aside from his writings, Pratt is perhaps best known for establishing the literary group known as the Trap Door Spiders in 1944. Fictionalized as “The Black Widowers” in the writings of Isaac Asimov, this group was a debating and dinner society comprised of notable science fiction and fantasy writers and intellectuals active from the 1940s to the late 1990s. It included among its members Isaac Asimov, Lester del Rey, L. Sprague de Camp, Lin Carter, and Willy Ley, and others.

Book Feature: Critical Dawn

by Anaiya on June 17, 2014

Critical Dawn

Critical Dawn

From the best-selling authors of First Activation and The Techxorcist Series.

Some mysteries should stay buried.

Archaeologists Pippa Quinn and Charlie Jackson find advanced technology in undisturbed 16th Century graves. A portent, the discovery precedes thousands of giant sinkholes opening up across the globe as extreme weather threatens the population. Charlie suspects the two are related.

A centuries old plan unfolds.

Pippa, Charlie, and the rest of humanity will have to fight for survival, sacrificing the life they’ve known to protect Earth from an ancient and previously dormant enemy. Even that might not be enough as this new enemy exacts a plan that will change the course of humankind forever.

Critical Dawn is an apocalyptic ride to the very edge of human existence. Factions will battle for control of the Earth—if they can avoid the threat of extinction.

“Five stars! Epic sci-fi thriller with twists, scares, and non-stop action that’ll have you up ’til dawn!” — David W. Wright co-author of the Yesterday’s Gone and WhiteSpace series.

“Critical Dawn will consume you and not let you go until the very end. This is War of the Worlds if the aliens did not get sick and die, and it’s not just the aliens you have to worry about. Immensely Enjoyable.” — M L Banner, author of Stone Age.

The Time Traveler’s Boyfriend

The Time Traveler's Boyfriend

From beloved author Annabelle Costa…

Claudia’s geeky boyfriend Adam has just invented a time machine.

No, really—he has. She doesn’t believe it either until Adam provides her with definitive proof that he does, in fact, have a functioning time travel device sitting in the living room of his Manhattan brownstone.

But instead of getting ready to accept the Nobel Prize, Adam has very different plans for his groundbreaking invention. He wants Claudia to use the machine to travel back in time and stop the accident that landed him in a wheelchair over a decade ago, and prevent the trajectory of events that he believes ruined his life.

When Claudia reluctantly agrees to become the first human time traveler, she knows she’s making a big gamble. If she succeeds, she could have the happy ending with commitment-phobic Adam that she’s always dreamed of. But if she fails, it could mean the end of the universe as she knows it.

No Pulse (a heart-stopping thriller)

Dead men aren’t supposed to get back up again…but for some unknown reason, you just can’t keep this dead man down.

***LAUNCH WEEK SALE. ENDS SOON.***

Derrick Smith feels a tinge in his chest. Tightness follows. Gasping for air. He breathes his last breath. And then he collapses. But why does he wake up in the morgue? Unfortunately for Derrick, it looks like he would have been better off six feet under.

People want him dead. The police frame him for murder. The government want him for experiments. There’s nowhere to run. But somewhere to hide.

How can they kill what is technically already dead? Can Derrick learn the truth behind his medical miracle?

Or are there far more sinister powers behind it all?

Find out in this heart-stopping sci-fi thriller that begs the question:

When is somebody truly dead?

Contains strong language, violence and adult themes. Reader discretion is advised.
