The Hooman Saga: Book One

Before the cities left, and plunged our world into a global dark age, there were stories that told that history. Collected here are the works of four authors who have been telling scraps and pieces of what happened. All through the eyes of the people (and animals) who lived it. Some are fantastic, others could be tall tales, perhaps some are downright lies. But that is all why they had to be published as fiction. Because few people would believe it, even as a TV documentary. All highly speculative. And that's why it's called Speculative Fiction. But its a very human telling. You may even find yourself in here... This anthology containing: The Lazurai Returns by C. C. Brower & J. R. KruzeWhen the Cities Left, I Danced by C. C. BrowerThe Lazurai by J. R. KruzeA Sweet Fortune by R. L. SaundersOur Second Civil War by R. L. Saunders & C. C. BrowerBecoming Michelle by R. L. Saunders & C. C. BrowerMind Timing by R. L. Saunders & C. C. BrowerWhen The Wild Calls by C. C. BrowerThe War Bringeth by C. C. Brower...and many more. Excerpt: Each with a thundering roar, the cities took flight. Cities - whole cities - roared into the atmosphere, their protective globes turned red and then yellow with the reflections of the exhaust. Their fusion reactors scarred the skies with fume trails. Any place on earth you could see them rise. All the 50 United States and all the major countries who could afford the technology had cities flying that day. They turned their major cities into a one-species 'Noah's Ark' to save humanity from itself. Take the best and brightest, and all who could fit, up past the atmosphere and beyond it. Seek a 'new life in the stars.' This statement came from the last international broadcast. And it played out at its end with a great symphony chord. Unstated was the little-hidden fact that the richest corporate heads and their families and investors all traveled on-board as well, first class. The Arks took temporary station along the 'ring of pearls' - those satellites in orbit protected by the same shield as the cities. For a while, their glow added to those pearls. But one by one, those pearls extinguished. Some, with powerful enough Earth telescopes, could see them absorbed into the cities. Around two weeks later, the cities one by one moved out as a string of their own towards the moon. Later, a hail of meteors followed in their wake. We didn't know what those were at first. The last radio transmissions we could receive said they were falling into desolate areas. We couldn't check this as the cell phones and land lines had all quit working at that point. The towers still worked locally as long as they were solar powered. But just as quickly as the Internet had died, all intercontinental communications ceased. Because that 'ring of pearls' they'd taken with them were all the major satellites that still worked. While they were also in orbit, they were scooping up all the other 'non-vital' satellites and orbiting debris as some grand ecological gesture. These either burned up when they ran into the Arks greater power fields or were just absorbed into them... - - - - Scroll Up and Get Your Copy Now.

A Very Thin Line (Ghost Hunters Mystery Parables)
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I was walking in my pasture one sunny afternoon when a pair of hands pulled me into the underworld. Once I arrived, I relaxed - a bit. Because it was an old friend. Carol. A time-bender and now a Lazurai as well. Meaning she could walk through rock - and other things. 'Hi John. How have you been?' Carol was standing in front of a crystal fire place, warming herself from the magma heat that was channeled out of the earth's core. 'Not bad, Carol. Other than being pulled deep into the earth without a simple request, or how-de-do.' 'Sorry about that. Really. But I need your help - because I'm worse than haunted now - I'm being hunted.' 'And I'm the only one who can help you?' She smiled, embarassed, and shrugged. 'Yeah, that about sums it up - other than how many people are after me...' Excerpt: Just walking along in the pasture, out to check my cows, when two hands reached up and pulled me underground. I kinda resented that. Because it was turning out to be a brilliant, sunny day. Winter had let go - at least for now. I could get outside with a light jacket instead of a heavy winter chore coat. The company I was keeping lately probably meant this was another mystery to solve. Hands had come up from below to grab me before, but these weren't Gaia - that earth goddess I've been working with. This wasn't the same touch. Firm, and female, sure - but not Gaia. Before I could wonder how I could tell things like that, we arrived. It looked like Gaia's 'bedroom' chamber again. Crystalline though, but feeling like a large cave of crystal. Its walls were slightly different, more orangish thatn the clearer yellow-white interior. But solid crystal, regardless. We were both 'breathing' solid rock again. And moving through it like just so much open space. I found a bench-like rock formation of 'thicker' granite to sit on, and focused on my kidnapper. She had her hands out toward the rock hearth in the room, warming up from the magma heat being channeled up from somewhere below. Then she turned around. As I suspected from her simple outfit a light jacket over a simple patterned blouse tucked into some black jeans - all designed to be inconspicuous -it was Carol. Time-bender and Lazurai. She smiled at me. 'Sorry I didn't ask before I whisked you down here.' I had to smile in return. 'Better to ask forgiveness than permssion?' A broader smile. 'Something like that - but I knew you'd like a good story. And besides, like the first time we met, I don't know who else to go to. This problem is huge - or at least seems that way to me.' I had to shake my head, like I said - the company I've been keeping lately. They know I'm in it for the story. 'OK, tell me this huge problem - dramatic situation first, please.' She chuckled a little. 'John, you have a way to make anyone feel at ease. Sal and Jude have told me straight about you.' A few steps across that bedroom suite let her sit next to me on that granite bench. 'There's a huge group that has been trying to capture me. They're chasing me through time wherever I go, trying to head me off. Running has been my only option until now.' Scroll Up and Get Your Copy Now.

The adventures of the Ghost Hunters continue - with more exotic locations and hair-raising paranormal adventures than ever before: This collection features four women, all invited to Earth, with unique super-abilities - who each could save or destroy humankind. Each came to this planet for their own reasons, deeply flawed. Victims of time and circumstance. Any one of these, just by themselves, could end all life on this planet in a heartbeat. Why would anyone want to assemble a team of feminine time bombs? Maybe to get them to save their own lives... All in short reads that fit into the time you have to read. Delicious mental snacks that will leave you with new ideas to consider long after the entertainment is over. This anthology contains: - The Training: Tess - The Training: Sylvie - The Training: Star - The Training: Mysti Excerpt: WHEN SHE ADMITTED TO hurting three other young women who came to me for help. I stood up from the round table, The chair behind me scooted back. My hands were clenched into fists, although I then forced them to relax. The atmosphere in that main room of the Western saloon went cool, or it felt so to me. I had three girls upstairs who had gone unconscious, all of which possessed unique supernatural abilities. Bending time and space. A trained warrior who could throw disintegrating fireballs from her bare hands. And the last was able to generate the heat and radiation of a star in space. And here was the person who admitted to knocking them all out, burning two of them, and various cuts to their bodies through bulletproof clothing. For me to get into any physical conflict with her would be foolhardy at best. Suicidal at worst. Hami and Gaia also stood at this. Gaia was more to worry about than any of us in the room. But her skills as an Earth goddess were a bit of a blunt instrument. Sinking whole continents at a gesture was more her trademark. Hami was better at cooking and healing - but it was her and I standing there that kept Gaia from taking any action, regardless of how she felt about this stranger. The golden-headed woman lowered her insulated hood and padded toward us in soft-soled, high-topped boots. 'I've heard about you, John of the Ghost Hunters, and read all about the Lazurai you've written up. Those two factors brought me here. And, as much as it may have just upset you, I've come to you for help. 'Because I'm dying.' Scroll Up and Get Your Copy Now.
