Summary

Anna left at dawn. 
She entered the Martian desert, all alone. 
Where is she going? 
What secret is she hiding? 
Thirty years after the Mars exploration mission Hera, whose crew died in mysterious circumstances, the ensuing political issues that slowed NASA's race to conquer space have finally ended. This time the five members of the new Isis mission will not travel the 400 million kilometres for a short visit. This time they are destined to become the first colonisers of the Red Planet. 
The science fiction series "Red Desert", set in the near future, includes four books. 
The first one, "Point of No Return", is a novella. 
In what looks like a suicide attempt, Swedish exobiologist Anna Persson, crew member of the Isis, secretly leaves Station Alpha at the crack of dawn to travel deep into the Martian desert in a pressurised rover. 
As she journeys to the limit of her two day oxygen supply, she shows us memories of events from her past leading up to the mission. Little by little, as time and oxygen run out, she reveals the real Anna. 
Whatever her goal, wherever it is, will Anna reach her destination? 
The second book is "Red Desert - People of Mars" (a novel). 
--- This is the first book in a series of four and it ends with a cliffhanger. ---

    On July 4th, 2014 the world lost CJ Henderson, an iconic author and all-around great guy. He lost his battle with cancer, but he did not go quietly and he will not be forgotten. His work is immortalized in over 70 novels and works of non-fiction, and at least as many collections, anthologies, and magazines. In fact, new works by CJ Henderson will publish for years to come thanks to his heroic efforts to finish and find homes for those projects as-yet unpublished at the time of his illness, two of which are printed here.
    
    CJ always did what he could to give other authors a boost. Encouraging them, mentoring them, sending opportunities their way. With that in mind those of us who called him friend feel there is no better tribute we can raise in his memory than an anthology filled with people he has helped over the years, writing stories inspired by CJ or his work.
    
    We hope you enjoy these tales of fantasy, science fiction and horror, and that they might inspire you as well.
    
    Featuring stories by: John L. French, Jean Rabe, Patrick Thomas, David Boop, Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Jeff Young, Leona Wisoker Robert M. Price, Leona Wisoker, James Chambers, and, as always, CJ Henderson.

    What would you get if you mixed Edgar Allan Poe, Alfred Hitchcock and Stephen King? The answer might be something resembling Howard Phillips (H.P.) Lovecraft (1890-1937), an extremely influential poet and author who mixed science fiction, horror and fantasy into a subgenre known as weird fiction. Perhaps none encapsulates weird fiction like his creation of the monster Cthulhu, which has been used by other writers to spawn a fictional universe and mythology centered around Cthulhu.

    These tales range from the merely odd to the fantastic, from the tragic to the magical. In one story you'll accompany a Cajun on a single-minded mission into the backwoods of Louisiana on a deep, humid night. In another, you'll witness the life or death struggle between a fifteen year old boy and the mean drunk who's been his oppressor for years. There's also a story about writing and the writer stalking his mentor; a job that very few could do but for which many would apply (wanna be a Mind Cleaner?); and a child's tale of a favorite pasttime: crushing bugs. Eric also offers up the ground rules for getting by when your shadow is doing odd things, writes of the passion between Giacomo Casanova and the one woman he has loved down through the ages, and wonders aloud what might happen if the characters in a story grew tired of a hack writer and banded together against him. Finally he takes the reader on a hectic road trip in "Interference," and ends with "A Natural Study of the Scream." All in all, this collection provides a very satisfying, if extremely unusual, reading experience. The reader will remember these stories.

    Many on Gor do not believe the great ship of Tersites, the lame, scorned, half-blind, half-mad shipwright, originally of Port Kar, exists. Surely it is a matter of no more than legend. In the previous book, however, Swordsmen of Gor, we learned that the great ship, commissioned by unusual warriors for a mysterious mission, was secretly built in the northern forests and brought down the Alexandra to Thassa, the sea, beginning her voyage to the “World’s End,” hazarding waters beyond the “farther islands” from which no ship had returned.   Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.  Mariners of Gor is the 30th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    "An amazing fantasy with knights, royalty, and mages that focuses on the excitement of adventure and the drama of Chaos! [...]" -- Goodreads review 
     
    The dark forces responsible for the fall of the Empire are rising once more in the Ten Kingdoms. Shaun Grayson understood the risks when she entered the Trials and became an apprentice knight, but she never expected the next war to come in the middle of her training or that survival wouldn't be all she needed to worry about. 
    As fire rains down on Riverend's castle, Shaun swears an oath to the king that she will protect his daughter Sara at any cost. But when they flee the burning city, they're pursued by a band of supernatural hunters hellbent on finding them. Wounded and cut off from help, Shaun races against time to find a safe haven for Sara before the kingdom's enemies can close in. 
     
    Fans of George R. R. Martin, Mark Lawrence, and Anna Smith Spark agree this dark fantasy series should be next on your list.
