Genehunter and the SpecFic Authors Collective

Sunday, 25 November 2012

The Genehunter #2: The Zombies of Death is officially published today.

Simms begins to uncover the truth about Boneyard. Problem is that nearly gets him badly killed and now he has to walk a line between a bunch of religious fanatics and the GMA who want him to spy on them.

Meanwhile, just to make life interesting, he's employed to find the DNA of the members of the punk band The Zombies of Death. To do that he needs the help of his old friend and old enemy, Devi. But she's gone completely AWOL. And he's finding it hard to concentrate anyway because of what he's learned about his ex-love, Kelly...

To help celebrate, part 1 of the series - The Wrong Tom Jacks - is back on freebie promotion again today and tomorrow (25th and 26th of November). And the really good news is that Tom Jacks is one of the four works available for download as part of the launch of The SpecFic Authors Collective.

I'm thrilled and delighted to be a part of this. As well as my own slight contribution we have the following fantastic reads:

Alienated by Milo James Fowler - five dark SF short stories: Insight, In His Eyes, Reverie, Mo's and Doppelgänger Mine, each one a riveting read.
Available for free download November 25th - November 29th.

The House of Crooked Coins by Jeff Chapman - a spooky, intriguing tale involving a cryptic trail of clues and a search for treasure in a haunted house.

Available for free download November 25th - November 27th.

Ulemet and the Jaguar God by Lyndon Perry.

Deformed and misshapen at birth, Ulemet is ugly in a way that attracts second looks, but seldom pity. Cursed by her Olmec village elders and taunted by her people, she flees into the rainforest never to return. Rejected and alone, the young girl's only solace is her small jade carving of Uaxaca, the jaguar animal spirit she wagers will guard her as she makes her way to Tenochtitlán, the golden city of hope.

Available for free download November 24th - 26th.

Something there for everyone I hope you'll agree. Find out more on the official launch page here.
