Warlords of Llantatis by Dominic Green
Genre: Sci-Fi
Get the book from Amazon

WARLORDS OF LLANTATIS’s graphics, gameplay, and immersive three-dimensional virtual reality experience took the online role playing gaming world by storm when it was first released – but it was first released over fifteen years ago. Now it’s a haunt for the nostalgic and unfashionable. Cyrus Baggett and Raj Rengarajulu have been pretending to be Smelrond of Quimnimbriel and Mordaxxe, Pwner of Noobs since college. Now they’re old, married, and wanted by most of the crowned heads, secret police organisations and demonic familiars of the game universe. They are considering growing out of this thing – at least, until they meet the Character With No Name. The Character’s player is living in one room, which he has never left and appears to be being held in against his will. He doesn’t know where in the world the room is; he doesn’t even know his own name. The only way of finding out more about him is through playing Warlords of Llantatis, and that can only happen if Mordaxxe and Smelrond can keep him alive for long enough to talk – and if they can stay alive themselves, with Beëlzebelle and the Munchkins, Wizard Sparklebeard and Titanowang Lord of Fertility at large in the same universe.

Saucerers and Gondoliers (Ant and Cleo #1)saucer-image
Genre: Sci-Fi
Audience: Children
Get it from Amazon

Flying saucers do not land in country parks. They are not piloted by Englishmen. They do not bear nameplates saying “HAWKER SIDDELEY AVIATION.” And they are never, ever filled with smuggled catering packs of Monster Munch.
Britain has had a top secret colony in space for decades. Unfortunately, the colony has grown tired of being run by the mother country – and the mother country has decided it’s time to send in the troops. Between these two sides are Anthony Stevens and Cleopatra Shakespeare, abducted from England and hurled into a war between Britain, America, and the newly, fiercely independent United States of the Zodiac.
Where is the mysterious hidden colony of Gondolin? How did the United States of America come to have interstellar spacecraft in the 1950s? And who or what is Truman J. Slughound the Third? Find out in a story guaranteed to contain colour-changing aliens, Godless communists from Altair, rednecks from Barnard’s Star, space fighters, rocket pistols, death by ecstasy, very bad hair, and more explosions than you can shake a stick at.

Elder Shepherd
Genre: Thriller
Get it on Amazon

“Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord – and what are we, if not agents of the Lord?”

Meet Elder Schaefer. He believes demons walk the Earth in human form. He also believes that, once he is certain he has found a demon, it is his to kill.
Meet the Church of Christ Astronaut. Your computer contains chips designed by people who work for them. They’ve existed since the nineteen fifties, they own technical companies all around the world, and the CIA has been known to get them to do its dirty work.
Meet Alison Darko. She’s just killed one of Schaefer’s parishioners and become indebted to the Church of Christ Astronaut, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
And they’re the good guys…

Author bio:  Dominic Green was born some time ago. He dominic-photoremembers when telephones were attached to the wall with cables. As a child, he was lied to by magazines that told him he would be living on the Moon in the year 2000 wearing silver rocket boots. People have been publishing science fiction by him since 1996, ha! The fools. In 2006, he was nominated for a Hugo Award for his story, The Clockwork Atom Bomb. He’s been published mainly in short story format in Interzone magazine, and in many anthologies (including Gardner Dozois’s Best New SF series). He is married and has three cats and a Newfoundland dog who is the world’s first life form to consist entirely of drool.
