Denver Moon: The Minds of Mars is an old school science fiction adventure, featuring a feisty self-sufficient heroine with a talent for finding trouble and facing it eye to eye. Accompanied by her AI Smith, and joined by an assortment of allies, Denver looks to discover whether her grandfather, presumed dead two decades before, is actually alive, and to uncover why his former partner is against her digging into her grandfather’s disappearance.
Denver Moon: The Minds of Mars is straight up science fiction adventure that will thrill fans of classic pulp sci fi. I can easily see this developing into a long running and successful series, I look forward to reading more Denver Moon adventures.

I remember reading cyberpunk in my youth - stories of tomorrows where technology is an integral part of life, but that life is far from utopian.

All but the poorest citizens or refugees have high tech eyewear connecting them constantly to a virtual world where commerce is supreme and social media is omnipresent. It juxtaposes transparency and the power of anonymity. It is a world where children play Strangers on a Train without thought acting against social media targets. Exploded View is thought provoking in the extreme, but as a novel it falte...
From Stephen Deas, bestselling author of The Adamantine Palace and The Royalist, comes LONEFIRE, a new foray into the many worlds of cyberpunk sci-fi.
Constantine is a veteran freelance corporate spy. Time was he was the best of the best with a rep to open any doors, but that all stopped a year ago when Victor Longthorne, the richest man in the galaxy, blew up in his face – literally.
Now he takes what work he can get – dirty, murky, whatever pays the bills; and that's why he's about to wake up in a system that doesn't welcome visitors with no idea how he got there.
Not only that, but he's got an Artificial Intelligence system peering over his shoulder, manipulating his every move and why, like it or not, he's about to find himself sucked into a galaxy-spanning conspiracy, desperate to find out why Victor Longthorne's empire is turning on itself before the galaxy's most lethal cult of re...
