Re-Release: Planetary Anthology: Mercury from Tuscany Bay Publishing

Greetings, Happy Readers!

Well, I hope you’re Happy.

No, I don’t mean it like that!

It’s crazy out there, so I sincerely hope that you are Happy!

With all the fear, uncertainty, economic fallout and lack of zombies* I know that a lot of people are in some seriously WTF mental states right now.

*[does not include your six-week-quarantined significant other over there on the futon or whatever oddly smelling furniture you have that will need to be thrown out when all this is over because of the clean hands but dirty bodies effect]

It has certainly flipped the script on what I’m doing or was planning at least. Despite all of that, I am trying to reinvigorate my motivation and move forward in the directions I have available to me. I hope that things will soon begin to lean back in the direction of ‘normal’ for all of us, but in the mean time I plan to adapt and move ahead. We’re all going to have to do that pretty soon I think.

As Freddy Mercury says so well… The Show Must Go On!

Speaking of Mercury!

Tuscany Bay has picked up the Planetary Anthology Series and re-Released Planetary Mercury with a snazzy new cover!

(see what I did there? That’s call a segway! Or is is segue?)

You can read my story “Quicksilver” from my Horizons Unlimited Universe in this one along with many other great stories by some really great authors.

Oh, and you can also read more about the Anthology from David Hallquist’s guest post on Tuscany Bay’s blog here:

Happy Reading!

Make an author happy! Leave a Review on Amazon! Here are links to my novels if you would like to go do that!

If you like intrigue, humor and a bit of speculative technological supposition, you should pick up a copy of my technothriller-comedy eConscience Beta from Amazon today!

Peacekeeper Incorporated’s breakthrough nanotechnology could bring repeat offense crime to an end, freeing society from the need for criminal incarcerations. But first, they have to finish testing it. With funding on the line, and time to prove out the project getting short, the lead scientist must find a way speed things up. That’s unfortunate for his guinea pig, and anyone who would stand in his way.

Can the goal of ending most crime justify committing one… even a few?
And what happens when you conflate altruism with egotism?

Find out in eConscience Beta, where two lab techs and an uncouth petty criminal must outwit a brilliant but sociopathic scientist who’ll stop at nothing to establish his legacy as the man who ended crime.

If Science Fiction Space Adventure is more your speed, then you should check out my anthology, Horizons Unlimited: Volume 1.


Matter conversion technology—Matt-Con—has broadened the scope of mankind’s existence. It has opened up the real possibility of viable colonies on other planets in our solar system, and even space itself. Anywhere matter can be captured or energy from the sun can be felt, the possibility of expanding human habitation exists.

In this volume:


The space station Chariot of Helios—on its way to Mercury to become a power collection station for Earth’s growing need for energy to power matt-con tech—encounters a strange anomaly that threatens ship and crew.

Escaping Aurora

The sudden destruction of mankind’s first atmospheric terraforming platform leaves three unlucky exonauts struggling to survive in the skies of Venus aboard a cobbled-together airship. Meanwhile, the commander of the space station above battles obstacles that might keep her from rescuing her stranded husband and crew in time.
