Myth Gods Tech 2 – Omnibus Edition

Crying Over Spilt Light (Hire a Muse Book 1)

Hire A Muse, Get A Nobel Prize

Ex Machina meets A Beautiful Mind in this mind-bending sci-fi thriller.

On the verge of abandoning his life-long project, an obsessive physicist hires the innovative service of an android Muse to help him finish his work. But when things start to go missing from his life, he must learn that not all is worth sacrificing on the altar of science before he has nothing left to live for.

Slow Up (Hire a Muse Book 2)

How Fast Can You Think?

Limitless meets Black Mirror in this novel that pushes the limits of a couple’s minds.

When Galene meets a man who’s only goal in life is to make his mind go faster, she ends up falling for him. But will she manage to keep the relationship going at the top of the glass tower, when in reality she’s too much of a slob and is bogged down with all her unfinished goals, when their age difference becomes too much of a problem, and when his work places them in the sights of an unforgiving huntress?

Do you want to know what’s next for the computer geek Galene? Do you wanna meet Artemis? Then read this bittersweet story in a world where thinking too swiftly can get you killed.

The Girl Who Twisted Fate’s Arm

Biker Amazons and Celebrity Singers

Sons Of Anarchy meets The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in this coming of age dystopian novel.

When the daughter of Greece’s premier singer fails to sing as expected, she finds out about a biker group of women. But will she manage to find the elusive Orosa, the bikers’ motovlogger, when all she has to go on are random street-sightings of criminal behaviour, when her family is opposed to her following this path and when her dad’s employer wants to keep her as she was for marketing purposes?

Do you want to know what’s next for the voiceless Aura? Do you wanna meet the Amazons? Then read this coming of age story in a world where fate is quite literal.

Binge-Worthy Reads: The Colossus Collection

Together in one set, books 1-4 of the Holly Drake Jobs. With bonus material, Six Shadows.

Some think the City of Jade Spires is a utopia. It very much isn’t.

Holly Drake is in prison for defending herself from a murderer. That’s the kind of corruption thriving in the city where evidence is destroyed and the innocent go to jail.

But everything’s about to change.

Someone exonerates Holly and she walks free. She has no idea who. Or why. But they have a job for her: steal back the Eye of the Colossus, a priceless jewel. It’s about to be moved off-planet, and when that happens, the trail will go cold.

Out of prison with no other work on the horizon, the job is a gift. If only she knew how to pull off a heist. The clock is ticking. If she can assemble a team and pretend like she knows how to do this, maybe she can fake it long enough to do a job better suited for a master-thief. Why Holly? Who’s pulling her strings? And just how far across the moon system will she have to go to finish the job?

This is Holly Drake. Someone tried to kill her once. She survived. Will she beat the odds once again?

The Eye of the Colossus features a snarky, strong, badass heroine on her way from the bottom of her game to the top. Grab your copy today!

A Holly Drake Job series, included in this set:

  • Book 1: Eye of the Colossus
  • Book 2: Hands of the Colossus
  • Book 3: Heart of the Colossus
  • Book 4: Shadow of the Colossus

This Is Your Last Chance, Kindle Unlimited Readers

To keep it short, dear readers, this is your last chance to show us if Kindle Unlimited is worth it for us. We’ve enrolled all of our novels in KU, and you can go and binge right now:

Read KU titles on Amazon US

Read KU titles on Amazon UK

That was the short version. Now for the longer one:

In case you don’t know, Kindle Unlimited is an amazing program where writers enroll their titles and can be discovered and binged by readers in it. It’s great, it really is. But, it requires exclusivity. And that’s a shame because no matter how big Amazon is, it doesn’t reach everywhere in the world. Even worse, not all people want to shop on Amazon.

It’s part of our philosophy to offer our titles to everyone worldwide. So, exclusivity has been a big no-no for us. But, we’re data-driven people. And we haven’t really tested KU for our titles yet, not in the scale we’re at now with thousands of Mythographers worldwide.

So, for this enrollment period, which is 3 months until November, you will be able to read our titles in KU. If you are a reader of this program, now is the time to binge through everything we have and tell your friends. We need to see some real action, otherwise we’re going back to being widely available. And we’re talking real action, not just a tiny bump in readers.

Convince us.

That’s all. Go. Binge. Tell your friends. And we’ll see where the stats take us.

Yeah, it doesn’t look good. Apart from a single title, the rest are lackluster. Just 2 weeks into this experiment and it’s obvious it’s not working for us. We’ll see as we get more data.

Binge-Worthy Reads: Future Fiction, A Collection of the Finest Sci-Fi From Around the World

If you like thought-provoking science fiction hand-picked from all around the world, then this collection of short stories is for you.

Future Fiction is an Italian house that picks out authors and translates their stories in English. We’ve posted about them before and we will do so again, because it seems they’re here to stay and we really like what they’re bringing to the international scene.

Tor called these: 

(…)thirteen incredible tales from all around the globe that will not only introduce you to worlds you may not be familiar with but also expand your horizons and the horizons of the science fiction field itself.

Strange Horizons has a thorough review if you want to read an analysis of the stories. Here are some snippets:

Future Fiction: New Dimensions in International Fiction. Edited by Rosarium’s Bill Campbell and Future Fiction‘s Francesco Verso, this collection brings together speculative fiction that was originally published by Verso’s Italian press. Represented here are India, Greece, Zimbabwe, China, Italy, the US, Canada, the UK, Russia, Mexico, Nigeria, and Cuba. Of these twelve stories, four are translations: “Creative Surgery” by Clelia Farris (translated from the Italian by Jennifer Delare), “The Quantum Mommy” by Michalis Manolios (translated from the Greek by Manolis Vamvounis), “Tongtong’s Summer” by Xia Jia (translated from the Chinese by Ken Liu), and “Grey Noise” by Pepe Rojo (translated from the Spanish by Andrea Bell).

There’s speculative fiction, and then there’s speculative fiction that’s been kicked up several levels. You’ll find the latter when you read stories like James Patrick Kelly’s “Bernardo’s House,” Farris’s “Creative Surgery,” Tendai Huchu’s “Hostbods,” and Efe Tokunbo’s absolutely brilliant “Proposition 23.”

Some of the stories, including Kelly’s “Bernardo’s House,” Carlos Hernandez’s “The International Studbook of the Giant Panda,” Manolios’s “The Quantum Mommy,” Huchu’s “Hostbods,” Rojo’s “Grey Noise,” and Tokunbo’s “Proposition 23,” focus on the complex and often troubling intersection of humans and machines.

Here’s a shot of a very happy Michalis Manolios only moments after he got the book in his hands for the first time.

The book is available in both paperback and ebook version. Shelf it on Goodreads.
