Summary

A young ensign, recently graduated from the Northern Hemisphere Space Academy, is awakened abruptly in the middle of the night by alarms, flashing lights, and dire messages to abandon ship. The petite blonde pulls on some clothes and races through the spaceship in a desperate search for an available life pod-- but it appears all have already departed.

 
So begins the epic story of Jenetta Carver. Get a tight grip on your book and prepare for an exciting adventure like few others because Jenetta is ready to take names and kick butts from one end of the galaxy to the other. She may be small, but she has an intellect as large as Colossus of Rhodes and makes General Sun-Tzu look like an amateur military enthusiast.

    Interview with the Author: 
     
    So what makes this short story collection so special? 
    William Meikle: Samurai and other stories contains a real cross section of what I'm all about as a writer. There's fantasy, swordplay, supernatural beasts, sword and sorcery, ghosts, horror, history, humor and a lot of particularly Scottish characters in weird situations. It's also got some of what I think of as my strongest work, whether its in the quieter ghost stories, or the blood and thunder sword swinging. I'm very proud of it as a collection, and Crystal Lake have done a wonderful job in the packaging, especially in the brilliant Ben Baldwin cover that captures the title story perfectly. 
     
    Tell us more about your title story. 
    William Meikle: Samurai is a cautionary tale of being careful what you wish for. A group of shipwrecked sailors find shelter in an ancient abandoned Japanese temple. They proceed to sack it of its treasures - but find, to their cost, that the temple has a guardian, and that service comes with a stiff price. It's a fantasy fable, with more Scots in trouble, more swordplay, and a splash of red gore in the green jungle. It runs in my head like a movie, and in fact, I think it would make a great one, if somebody has the cash for it. 
     
    Why should readers give Samurai and Other Stories a try? 
    William Meikle: It's packed with entertainment, at least I think so. My ethos as a writer is that story comes first, and I like to think that shows in this collection, whether it be in tales of adventure, or misadventure, spooky goings on in coal mines, strange musicians, poltergeists, magial relics, or the people that nobody expects. A wee bit of something for everybody. 
     
    Do you have other books featuring these some of the characters in this book? 
    William Meikle: The main recurring character is Derek Adams, the Midnight Eye, a Glasgow P.I. who keeps getting sucked into supernatural cases. He's in three novels, THE AMULET, THE SIRENS and THE SKIN GAME that are available in ebook, paperback and audiobook,  and he's in a handful of short stories now too. I'm sure he'll be in several more in years to come.

    “Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of valor, honor, courage, magic and faith in your destiny. Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.…Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.”
    --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Rise of the Dragons)
    
    SOLDIER, BROTHER, SORCERER is book #5 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series OF CROWNS AND GLORY, which begins with SLAVE, WARRIOR, QUEEN (Book #1).
    
    17 year old Ceres, a beautiful, poor girl from the Empire city of Delos, has won the battle for Delos—and yet a complete victory still awaits her. As the rebellion looks to her as their new leader, Ceres must find a way to topple the Empire’s royalty, and to defend Delos from the pending attack from a greater army than she has ever known. She must try to free Thanos before his execution, and help him clear his name in the murder of his father.
    
    Thanos himself is determined to hunt down Lucious across the sea, to avenge his father’s murder, and to kill his brother before he can return with an army to Delos’ shores. It will be a treacherous journey into hostile lands, one, he knows, that will result in his own death. But he is determined to sacrifice for his country.
    
    Yet all may not go as planned. Stephania travels to a distant land to find the sorcerer who can, once and for all, put a stop Ceres’ powers. She is determined to enact a treachery that will kill Ceres, and instill herself—and her unborn child—as ruler of the Empire.
    
    SOLDIER, BROTHER, SORCERER tells an epic tale of tragic love, vengeance, betrayal, ambition, and destiny. Filled with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding action, it transports us into a world we will never forget, and makes us fall in love with fantasy all over again.
    
    “An action packed fantasy sure to please fans of Morgan Rice’s previous novels, along with fans of works such as The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini…. Fans of Young Adult Fiction will devour this latest work by Rice and beg for more.” 
    --The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (regarding Rise of the Dragons) 
    
    Book #6 in OF CROWNS AND GLORY will be released soon!

    With a comic edge, Zero is a sci-fi space opera that charts the adventures of a bounty hunter called Oatmeal as he flies around the galaxy with his trusty sidekick, a genius kid called Jelly. 
    ... 
    Life's good for Oatmeal at the moment; when he isn't lounging on the coach watching reruns in his boxers, he's out smashing CRIMs and cashing bounty checks. 
    But then she comes along. And she is a galaxy-full of freaking trouble. It was just meant to be an ordinary rescue: save the Earth-girl from the nasty aliens, give her to the police, and cash that fat check. But Callie Hope is anything but ordinary. 
    Just one day with her, and Oatmeal finds himself being tracked down by every CRIM, galactic cop, and terrorist the Milky Way can throw at him. Now his options are painfully simple: take all the kid's cash and dump her or ... save the galaxy. 
    Zero is a two-part series. Both instalments are currently available.
