Butterfly Potion

A novella by Trent Zelazny

Perry wakes up in an arroyo, hungover and unsure how he got there. His wallet and cell phone missing, he walks back to the last place he remembers being before he blacked out—the bar. Fueled by alcohol and a touch of companionship, Perry is determined to find out who rolled him, but standing in his way is an accident that happened six months earlier and the struggle his life has become since. In his search for the material things taken from him, he risks walking right past something far more precious: A new beginning.

“Butterfly Potion is both a disturbing and touching tale. If you’ve ever been in the gutter (literally or figuratively) you know this book speaks the truth. Like a mixture of Charles Bukowski and Dashiell Hammett, Trent Zelazny takes us down a road filled with mystery, danger, a gorgeous redhead, and booze… lots of booze.” —Sarah L. Covert, Editor of She Never Slept

This new story by Zelazny is dark, gripping, emotional noir at its best! Coming soon…

A REQUIEM FOR DEAD FLIES

A novel by Peter N. Dudar

After their mother’s miscarriage, Lester and Gordon MacAuley were sent to Battle View Farm to stay with their grandmother for the summer. But the house on Battle View Farm has a haunting secret. As Grandma Vivian slowly slipped into madness, the brothers’ lives became entangled in mortal danger. That summer of terror left them scarred and plagued by the family’s dark secret.

Now, years later, the MacAuley brothers have returned with dreams of breathing new life into Battle View Farm. But living in the house on Battle View Farm, they are forced to face their past and solve the mystery that began generations ago. And to face the ghosts that still haunt their family’s legacy.

A legacy written in dead flies.

 

Folks, this is one hell of a creepy debut novel that we cannot wait to share with readers everywhere! Coming soon…

Up next in the series of interviews with the authors of World’s Collider is James Moran!

James, you’ve pretty much done it all – you’ve written Severance, which was an instant cult classic, you’ve got two more films on the way, and you’ve written for Doctor Who and Torchwood. Do you have any unfulfilled dreams left?

Immortality. Telekinetic powers. The ability to transport myself. Basically I want to be Sylar. Doctor Who was a huge dream, so everything else is a bonus. Although I’d love to create my own TV series (something that’s in the works, slowly but surely), direct a film (also in the works), and get a creator-owned comic off the ground (not yet in the works, call me, etc). I’d really love to work in America too, so if any TV or movie producers would like to hire me, I’m available and not that expensive yet. I’d kill to write for Leverage. Seriously. John Rogers, if you’re reading this, in exchange for an episode, I will kill one person of your choice, no questions asked.

Interview with World’s Collider contributor, Jonathan Green.

March 3rd, 2012 by

For the 2% of readers who have never heard of you, tell us a little about yourself.

Hi, my name’s Jon and I am a freelance writer… Hang on, that sounds like an introduction at a meeting of the AA (Authors Anonymous). No, but seriously, I’m a writer of speculative fiction – everything from SF and Fantasy to Horror and Steampunk. I received my first commission in 1992 and finally went full-time in 2007.
I’m probably most well-known these days for my Pax Britannia novels (published by Abaddon Books) although those with long enough memories will remember my Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 novels, and maybe even my contributions to the Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks.
I’ve been published in various languages and have written for a number of famous franchises, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars the Clone Wars and Doctor Who.
