Another Nerd’s Treasure – Batch the Third

Hello again, Happy Readers!

Yes, I’m an addict. I made yet another stop and grabbed more books. This time, I was greedy and took almost 50 of them! It is a true cornucopia of genres!

My methods of choosing were:

  • Hardbacks in great shape
  • Known Authors
  • All Sci-fi / Fantasy
  • Very Old books

Here’s what I came away with this time…

It took me quite a while to go through them and get them catalogued (I use Goodreads). Many of them were not there in the versions/editions I had, and many did not have cover images, so I added those as I went. Below are screen grabs of covers from the stacks above.

If you want to know more about individual titles, follow this LINK to the Goodreads list I made and look it up. I couldn’t bring myself to make all those links on here…sorry.

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:

Quicksilver (short story)

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.

Null Gravitas (short story)

New crew and new relationships form above the skies of Venus. A post-prequel to Escaping Aurora.

Escaping Aurora (novella)

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.

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.

Oh, and check out these Corner Scribblers anthologies. I have stories in them all! Here are some links!
