Our newest title, Extreme Dentistry by twice Aurora Award-nominated author Hugh A. D. Spencer, is now available for purchase! Middle-aged, middle-income and lapsed Mormon Arthur Percy felt his life lurch from a difficult normality onto the rails of a carnival ride heading somewhere too much like the Twilight Zone for his liking. Perhaps it is more the “Anti-Twilight Zone” that Arthur enters—where vampires, shape shifters and ghouls are not gorgeous or glamorous but genetic parasites from a hideous communal intelligence known as the Hive. Who will save the human race? And what does all this have to do with Dr. Calvin Stewart, Arthur’s new dentist?

This tale of sarcasm, Mormonism, shopping malls, and more will leave you in stitches. Visit the book detail page to pick up your paperback or ebook today, and join us Saturday, April 5th at 4:00 p.m. during Ad Astra for the official launch party!

We will be at SFContario at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Toronto at 300 Jarvis St. next weekend, November 29-December 1. Brain Lag will be in the dealers room all weekend and authors Simon McNeil and Catherine Fitzsimmons will be hosting panels and workshops throughout the convention.

The launch party is open to the public so come to the Courtyard room of the Ramada Plaza Hotel on Saturday, November 30 at 6:00 p.m. to celebrate the release of our fourth title with prizes, games, and more.

Details on our next title, releasing at the end of November, are now available. Presenting Enduring Chaos by Catherine Fitzsimmons, author of Aurius and Halcyon, and the second book taking place in the world of J. R. Dwornik’s Ruins of Change:

Synopsis:

Cursed with fearsome eyes and a dangerous gift, any chance of Damian Sires having an ordinary life was dashed the moment she was born. All her life, she has hidden her abnormalities and fought for acceptance behind the shadow of a veil and her respected merchant father.

When Damian’s power spirals out of control and casts her out alone into the world, she finds herself caught up in plots as old as the gods themselves. Bitter exiles, deposed nobility, clandestine knights, and a divine being with an ancient grudge all close in on the unstable power radiating from Damian.

Desperate to keep that power contained, she sets out with mysterious allies in an attempt to find someone who can help her in a world that fears magic. Yet the source of Damian’s ability is far more deadly than she imagined.
