Alchemy Press / Compromising the Truth
« Last post by Peter Coleborn on April 02, 2019, 02:53:32 pm »


Eighteen stories plus two dozen poems of the weird and wonderful: a touch of science fiction, a tidbit of horror, a sprinkling of the strange.

From Adrian Cole’s introduction: His stories reflect a clear understanding of the human condition and he imbues his characters with knowing insights. The tales vary from stark, unnerving urban horror, to blackly humorous, almost preposterous fantasy, although even these hugely entertaining yarns are seated in reality.

Compromising the Truth is available in print and eBook formats. Click here for further details:

Ask the Authors and Artists! / Pre-order page for What the Wind Brings
« Last post by hapthorn on March 30, 2019, 08:53:49 pm »
Pulp Literature Press has set up a pre-order page for the hardcover limited edition of What the Wind Brings, my big historical novel (with slipstream elements) that I waited more than forty years to write. There will also be a trade paperback and an ebook, down the road.

http://pulpliterature.com/product/what-the-wind-brings-hardcover/

If you’re just tuning in, WTWB is a novel based on a series of events that happened in coastal Ecuador and the Andean highlands in the middle of the sixteenth century, when shipwrecked African slaves combined with the local indigenous people to form a new society. They fought off successive invasions by the Spanish colonial power and finally won their freedom.

I consider it the most important piece of writing I’ve ever done. It’s the work I want to be remembered for.

In about a month, Advanced Reading Copies will be ready to go out. George R.R. Martin, Bernard Cornwell, Cecelia Holland, and David Gerrold have all agreed to take a look at the book and consider giving it a blurb.

BTW, the cover is a placeholder. Pulp Literature Press has yet to commission the cover.

Ask the Authors and Artists! / Re: JOHAN FUNDIN - THRILLER AND SUSPENSE AUTHOR
« Last post by Johan Fundin on March 24, 2019, 11:14:29 pm »
Readers who enjoyed my novel MR. MANIAC (a forthcoming re-publication in an expanded and repackaged edition as SCHIZOID from Asioni Press) are asking about the release date of my next book, what the next book is about, and what I’m currently writing, so here’s an update, in brief, on my present projects:

The novel TWISTED SHADOWS (title now changed to DISORDER) came back from my editor in 2018 and was then technically ready for publication. The release year changed to 2019 and the book cover is different to that displayed in connection with the 2018 marketing activities. What DISORDER is about: The target of both stalkers and killers, a top fashion model with a rare disease sets out to learn how her pioneering scientist father died, only to find herself in the middle of a vicious conspiracy. Cat is a hot multimillionaire supermodel—but her life is far from perfect. She suffers from a chronic brain disorder and she is being stalked by a figure in a raincoat. Who is he … or it? In connection with the bizarre death of the founder of a groundbreaking biotechnology institute, Cat is pulled into a sinister corporate plot with a global backwash. Release date: 28-May-2019.

A special note on my earlier novel MR. MANIAC: This book will see a re-release in a somewhat expanded version in late 2019, with a new title, SCHIZOID, and a new cover art. The additional text material comprises a significant scientific plot point and some extra dialogue. The extra science in the expanded version concerns X-ray crystallography, a method used for determining crystal structure. A beam of X-rays shines on the crystal, which makes the X-rays diffract into a specific pattern. From this pattern, the positions of the atoms and the molecules in the crystal can be determined in three dimensions.

Crystals aren’t limited to gemstones. Snowflakes are crystals of ice. Biological macromolecules, such as proteins, nucleic acids or viral particles, can also be crystals. X-ray crystallography was invented more than a hundred years ago and is still used today at the forefront of research. The technique is applied in many different scientific disciplines, from solid-state physics to medicinal chemistry.

Macromolecular X-ray crystallography is a powerful tool used by pharmaceutical corporations and research-active hospitals in the discovery process of new medicines. The detailed atomic-level analysis of three-dimensional crystal structures of relevant macromolecules reveals the specific interactions of a particular pharmaceutical with its protein target in the human cell. The analysis is used to design and improve drugs.

I’m currently writing a novel titled SPECIES. The story: Hunted by the insane resurrector of extinct species, and for reasons beyond belief, a scientist is warned to cooperate or die. At the same time, with danger to her own life, a nurse at a big-city hospital discovers a conspiracy where unknowing patients are exposed to illegal experiments.
