The Violet Catastrophe
by Will Schmitz

Luke Wentworth is a private dick with enough bad habits to keep him stuck to the underbelly of Los Angeles till the trumpets call him home. Maybe sleuthing is a way to serve the greater good, but probably it’s just another way to pay off debts and get a little action to boot.

Tracking the missing daughter of a local big-shot requires a certain amount of tact that our Wentworth just doesn’t have time for. Things will go wrong. People will get hurt. Cats better scat or they’ll wind up going splat.

Luke is on the job, but the job keeps getting bigger and badder.

    Panteria Chronicles: Fallen
by L.B. Sisk

After being ravaged by famine, genocide and 400 years of war, an ancient city-state known as Panteria has united the planet bringing peace for most, and unrest for others.

Nearing the end of thirtieth century, an unparalleled killer in the Army of Mutants escapes the brutality and seeks a life of peace. Jim St. John--recruited, trained and enhanced by the government as a boy to be the ultimate soldier--vows to stop the bloodshed, unearthing a civilization buried by catastrophe for over 800 years. Under St. John’s command, the ultra-soldiers of Crystal Mountain must rise above the surface to exact violent justice on those who threaten the nascent liberty. But nothing worth dying for comes easy.

Steel yourself for the first volume of the Panteria Chronicles ... Fallen.

    Planets Above & Below: Grues & Kirns
by Will Schmitz

Bomby would rather spend the day lounging amongst the branches of his favorite lant tree, but being a servant of the Grues has its responsibilities, and all of them are boring. Too bad he didn’t see the great fireball falling from the heavens. He would have had a great story to tell, but it probably wouldn’t have made much difference since the Grues never listen to him anyways.

Generations of venerated leaders have led the planet’s inhabitants though interminable war guided by a philosophy of blood and stone, but in a society where the wheel is little more than a curiosity, weapons forged of metals emerge as the heart of a nascent technology. When a pirated starship of immense capability is haplessly marooned amongst the population of fierce idol-worshippers, the malevolent tide of evolution threatens to wash clean the slate of planetary sovereignty.

If Bomby could have just stayed up in his favorite tree ...

  Bots, Come!
by Will Schmitz

Bots are everywhere, so you’d best get used to them.

They have permeated the farthest extents, constructing your future and recreating the past, performing tasks of complexity with a precision and elegance that no “bio” can hope to match. Special talents? Not like them. High IQ? That’s what you think. Sex machine? Ha! They croon like nobody’s business and get your dishes sparkling clean. Inexhaustible, indestructible, biocompatible—and the latest models are 100% submersible. Affordable? You bet. It’ll practically pay for itself in less than three cycles.

Get yours today! (And pray it isn’t defective.)

A frenetic romp through the lives of future “bots” and the "bios" lucky enough to find their place in a universe where the artificially inclined are the masters of acting natural. Will Schmitz has fused together a collection of smart, funny and utterly disturbing vignettes of future "life" written in a fast-paced, abbreviated style that will keep the pages turning until it's far too late to pull the plug.
