Ian McDonald‘s CHAGA: On the trail of the mystery of Saturn’s disappearing moons, network journalist Gaby McAslan finds herself in Africa researching the Kilimanjaro Event: a meteor-strike in Kenya which caused the stunning African landscape to give way to something equally beautiful – and indescribably alien. Dubbed the ‘Chaga’, the alien flora destroys all man-made materials, and moulds human flesh, bone and spirit to its own designs. But when Gaby finds the first man to survive the Chaga’s changes, she realizes it has its own plans for humankind… Against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro, McDonald weaves a staggering tale of keen human observation and speculation, as the Kilimanjaro Event changes the course of the human race by exposure to something beyond its imagination.
Louis Charbonneau‘s CORPUS EARTHLING: Professor Paul Cameron is the only one who can hear them, the voices in his mind, sinister and menacing. At first he believes that they are only delusions. But the truth is far more disturbing—somehow, Cameron is able to hear Martian spies conferring telepathically. Their ominous plotting is terrifying enough, until the moment they realize someone has been listening in… The aliens attack Cameron’s mind with commands to kill himself, terrible orders he is barely able to resist. When an alien-possessed human murders a witness to the latest attempt on Cameron’s life, he realizes they are more powerful than even he imagined. The extraterrestrials can invade human bodies, as well as minds, but they have an even bigger target in sight: Earth.
William C. Dietz‘s DEATHDAY: Enslaved after the slaughter of billions by a violent race of aliens called the Saurons, Earth’s few remaining humans are forced into back breaking labor building mysterious temples for their new masters. The captors claim that these temples, once finished, will allow them to leave Earth in peace once again. They enlist Alexander Franklin, former governor of Washington, as the head of their puppet government to help manage their mission. Meanwhile, a group of escaped slaves form a resistance movement which grows with each passing day. When former government bodyguard Jack Manning, well-versed in the art of survival, finds himself placed in the center of power as security for Franklin, he learns the brutal truth behind the temples. He faces an agonizing choice: to stay where he is, alongside the woman he loves, or to aid the rebels and their fight for freedom. The survival of the human race hangs in the balance.
John Zakour and Lawrence Ganem‘s THE PLUTONIUM BLONDE: Zachary Nixon Johnson is the last private eye on earth (long story, starts here). And in the pop culture-crazed, deco-inspired world of 2057, that makes him a bit of a celebrity. In his years as a PI, Zach has seen a lot of strange things and solved a lot of crazy cases. But when the famous BB Starr, a former exotic dancer who is now the CEO of the world’s largest corporation, hires him to find her illegal, plutonium-powered, psychotic android clone, Zach knows that the weirdness of his life is about to get a whole lot weirder. Together with his beautiful, kick-boxing surgeon girlfriend Electra, his genius inventor tech expert Randy, and his holographic, sentient super-computer sidekick HARV, Zach must find a way to unravel the mystery, find the missing android, and quite possibly save all humanity from total destruction.
Adam-Troy Castro‘s VOSSOFF AND NIMMITZ: Introducing the madcap adventures of Ernst Vossoff and Karl Nimmitz, a couple of interstellar rogues whose adventures often veer in unexpected directions, sometimes in space limousines and sometimes dropping by continent-wide cocktail parties. In the great tradition of Douglas Adams, Vossoff and Nimmitz is science fiction made utterly hilarious.
