Keith is a computer prodigy. Some argue that he's better than the computer genius Damian Mackeths. To Keith, it doesn't matter as Damian has had control of Keith since he was a teenager, at 16, back in high school. Keith, at that time, had managed to hack into the best security system on the planet; Eleanor herself. When Damian caught Keith, Damian offered him a deal, one of which he couldn’t refuse.
Now, 15 years later, Keith is working for Future Tech Corp, and has been put on a new assignment; to design, develop and build a computer network of monstrous proportions. A new city is being designed that will allow the peaceful fusion of the Humans, FireCats and Elves, along with the Dragons found only 15 years ago.
Trinity O'Connell, a world class academic, who is also a journalist, blogger, professor and photographer, has been hired to help promote a massive project.
However, things don’t go as planned and her pathway in life isn’t as straight forward as she once thought it was, as she reminisces her high school years, when she trained and fought Kronck.

A physics student's talents are put to the test when he's transported to a world of magic and alchemical mysteries in the first book of a new fantasy series.
Fact one: Edwin Maxlin has fallen out of the sky and landed in a strange forest. Fact two: messages keep appearing in his line of vision, informing him that he has leveled up in various Skills—including some truly thrilling abilities such as Walking and Breathing. Fact three: this is most definitely not Earth.
Now Edwin, one-time student of material physics, must make his way through an unknown world, collecting Skills, upgrading his Class, embarking on life Paths, and most importantly, staying alive. But surviving in the land of Joriah isn't as simple as increasing mana and learning how to become a Firestarter.
Edwin soon finds himself going toe-to-toe with an angry clan of dwarves and their even more disgruntled ruler, Lord S'fashkchlil. It will take all of Edwin's wit, ingenuity, mathematical know-how, and charm to form new alliances, navigate a complicated political landscape, and keep from getting enslaved by Clan Blackstone. Fortunately, his otherworldly expertise is even more valuable than Edwin realizes . . .
Filled with humor, adventure, and unforgettable characters, The Way Ahead is a must-read for fans of epic fantasy, role-playing games, and the scientific method.

Physicist-turned-alchemist Edwin Maxlin partners with a powerful magical being to unlock his full potential in the second book of a humorous fantasy series.
Since being transported from Earth to an unknown world, Edwin Maxlin has endured angry dwarves, wandering birdfolk, and marauding bandits—and it hasn't even been a year. So when the opportunity presents itself for him to get off the grid and figure out how to actually use his Skills, he jumps at the chance.
But life in the wilderness of Joriah isn't as straightforward as it might appear. For one thing, surviving the Verdant will require Edwin to learn how to build his own shelter, acquire his own food, and avoid attacks from wild animals with unimaginable strength. For another, no matter how secluded he remains, the politics of the Lirasian Empire keep trying to suck him back in.
As if all that weren't enough to wrap his head around, Edwin suddenly finds himself the companion of an ancient and powerful fey who seems committed to helping him level up and follow his Paths, but whose motivations are unclear—and disconcerting.
At once wryly humorous and wildly inventive, The Way Ahead 2 is a perfect continuation of the series that blends fantasy, science, and role-playing games into one unforgettable journey.

Her future is about to change. So is her past . . . In the English seaside town of Brighton, Robyn Lockhart has a boyfriend named Vincent, a frail, sickly sister, and a mother who keeps a lock on one of the cupboards. These things she knows. Other things are much foggier, and it’s not because of the drugs or alcohol. For example, Tiffany—the tattooed bartender she befriends after an ugly fight with Vincent. She seems familiar, and she appears to know Robyn. Is this the start of a new relationship or a continuation of one? While Robyn connects with Tiffany, a vicious storm hits the city, punctuated by a deafening roar in the middle of the night. The next day, the source of the sound is revealed: a battered ship has run aground on the beach across from Tiffany’s apartment. Authorities arrive quickly. The gawking crowds are forcefully driven away as a noxious gas fills the air. Oddly enough, news outlets make no mention of the event. For Robyn, the mystery surrounding the beached vessel is as disturbing as the question of her sanity. As she tries to sort out what is real and why she’s unable to remember certain details, Robyn will discover to the truth about herself, her family, and the place she’s always called home.
The post-apocalyptic love child of Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy
Ten years after the calamitous events set in motion by Dylan Cleary in his attempt to bring George Cleary’s last novel to life, Deacon Riis has settled back into the rather sedate life of a small-town reporter. That is, until he’s invited to a New Year’s Eve Party by Dylan’s sister Crystal, who’s now a successful writer/producer behind a wildly popular horror movie franchise and for her next big budget slasher flick she’s chosen to adapt one of her grandfather’s apocalyptic thrillers.
On the drive up to his sister’s retreat in northern Ontario, Deacon receives a text that reads, It has begun again. D. True to his word, Dylan is even then orchestrating an apparently random and increasingly savage series of attacks culled from his grandfather’s last fiction and Deacon’s only hope of avoiding a similar climax as the one that saw much of Mesaquakee reduced to ash will be to go all-in like Dylan, even if it means sacrificing everything he holds dear.
