Chimaera's Copper by Piers Anthony and Robert Margroff

 

Much to his surprise, Kelvin has discovered that being the hero named in the prophecy has made him an epic figure in several alternate worlds. Now he is about to learn that his heroic stature also means facing up to old enemies--enemies that refuse to stay dead…

Zoanna, deposed witch-queen of Zud, and Rowforth, sadistic ex-king of Hud, have returned and join forces to seek deadly revenge on Kelvin and his kingdom.

 

Unfortunately Kelvin is otherwise disposed. To be precise, he is trapped in an unknown frame of reality and about to be fed to the legendary Chimaera--a rather malevolent three-headed creature with the body of a giant crab, the tail of a scorpion, and a particularly ferocious appetite for human flesh…

 

Meanwhile Rowforth has seized the throne of his double, Rufurt of Kelvinia, and launched a senseless war that will drown the kingdoms in blood…

 

 

Key to Survival by Piers Anthony

 

Key to Survival is the fifth and concluding quarter-million word sexy ChroMagic fantasy novel. It features King Havoc, Queen Gale, and their four Glamor children as they tackle the invasion of the machines.

 

The machines have destroyed one third of the galaxy and are working on the rest. They have overwhelming power and ruthless competence. But one thing makes them pause: they want to recruit Havoc's daughter Voila to their cause, as she is the strongest of all Glamors with a talent they need.

 

If she joins them, they will spare the rest of the human culture--and destroy the rest of the galaxy much faster. Voila must decide whether to betray all the other living cultures, to save her own.

Beverley Bateman and Stephen LaFevers: Dark Moon

Dark Moon - Stephen LaFevers, Beverley Bateman

"Don't go to Canada" is a warning given to Dr. Phil Jones and his new wife Zena. The problem is, on their honeymoon they end up on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.
While there, Phil is attacked and partially eviscerated by an unknown animal. Barely clinging to life, he receives a visit from a man who tells him of something called a longevity virus. It keeps the infected person healthy, heals wounds rapidly, and extends life indefinitely. An unfortunate side effect of the longevity virus is the infected person suffers from periodic mad rages that cause that person to take the lives of those he loves most.

 

Phil’s recovery is amazing and fast. He and Zena return to New Orleans to begin their life as husband and wife. Shortly after their return there is a full moon and someone is killed and ripped to shreds. During every full moon after, a wolf-like animal attacks women that look similar to Zena. The police are baffled until they are aided in their investigation by a man who has been searching for the people infected with the virus for years.

They are closing in on Phil, but can he be caught and stopped before he succeeds in killing his wife or infecting anyone else?

Key to Liberty and Key to Destiny Re-Released

Key to Destiny

 

At last Havoc and Gale are married, having discovered the source of the changelings, but the King and Queen have yet to enjoy a peaceful reign. The knowledge they've gained, as well as their new Glamor status, opens doors to new questions—and new missions for Havoc's loyal friends.

 

The discovery of the enigmatic loom brings more questions than answers, and when the loom creates a tapestry that points the way to Counter-Charm, the whole assemblage makes ready to visit and explore the mysterious sister planet. With the help of the peculiar cloud-like ifrits, the Glamors must find the location indicated by the tapestry and permeate powerful illusion fields to find whatever lies at the center.

 

In the process they just might discover that the key to their destiny may be the smallest among them.

 

Key to Liberty

 

Shortly after the planet Charm was colonized 1,000 years ago, Earth finally suffered World War III. Almost everyone was destroyed and those remaining fell into a barbarian society when technology was lost. To prevent future wars, Earth's women took control and governed with a more sensible approach.

 

Over the next thousand years, Earth rebuilt itself to an advanced technological power again and now needed more resources for its continued existence and growth. To fulfill their needs, Earth's lost colonies must be found and brought back under control.

 

Now Earth has sent a ship with a planet-busting bomb to reclaim the colony Charm, and it appears that the only way Havoc and his planet can survive the invasion is if his children are sacrificed as hostages.

Dragon's Gold - Piers Anthony and Robert E Margroff

 

The Roundear Prophecy Book 1

 

BUY NOW

 

A Roundear there Shall Surely be

Born to be Strong, Raised to be Free

Fighting Dragons in his Youth

Leading Armies, Nothing Loth

Ridding his Country of a Sore

Joining Two, then uniting Four

Until from Seven there be One

Only then will his Task be Done

 

When Kelvin was a child, his mother read to him from the Book of Prophecy and he asked what its cryptic message meant. Now he was about to learn.

 

The Kingdom of Rud languishes under the heel of a usurper; an evil sorcerer has taken the throne in the name of his wicked daughter. Even deep in the forest, away from all power, the people tremble and await the day of the prophecy's fulfillment. It cannot come too soon for Charlain and her children are soon to lose their home to the tax collector.

 

But Kelvin and his sister Jon have other plans. They have discovered a dragon's territory, where scales of purest gold, shed by the dragon, lie free on the ground for anyone with courage, stupidity, or innocence to take.

 

And the words of Mouvar the prophet echo across the land…

 

Serpent's Silver

Piers Anthony and Robert E Margroff

 

The Roundear Prophecy Book 2

 

BUY NOW

 

Every cloud has them, so the saying goes, but Kelvin isn't so sure. He knows he's stuck with being the Roundear of Prophecy…and he even knows the Prophecy isn't completed and his adventures aren't over.

 

But he had hoped for a bit of a rest.

 

There's not much chance of that--his father's got himself imprisoned in a dungeon beyond Flaw, his half-brother is entangled with a beautiful girl and a silver serpent, and King Philip of Blastmore is beginning to figure out how much he is ruled by Melbah the witch. Kelvin's father-in-law has strong ideas about who should advise the King in Melbah's stead.

 

If that weren't enough, the relationship between the flopears and the silver serpents has become completely and dangerously misunderstood…

 

Key to Havoc

Chromagic Series Book One

 

BUY NOW

 

1,000 years ago Earth sent out a ship that colonized the planet Charm. But the population of Charm is now far removed from their ancient ancestors. Technology has been lost over the years but the people have something better—Magic!

 

Charm is a world covered by volcanoes, each erupting a different color of magic. Everything within a particular Chroma becomes that color. Plants, animals, insects, and even humans all become one color and can perform that color of magic. Traveling is dangerous because a person leaving their native Chroma home can no longer perform their color magic.

 

Havoc is a barbarian living in a nonChroma village, where no one has magic. As a boy, he rescued a dragon that rewarded him with special magic; to sense pending danger.

 

His gift becomes more valuable than he can imagine as he is suddenly drafted and forced to become the new king of the planet. He must perform his duties or be executed for treason.

 

Key to Chroma

Chromagic Series Book Two

 

BUY NOW

 

Settled by a human expedition over 1,000 years ago, the planet Charm is both magical and dangerous. Volcanoes, scattered throughout the vast landscape, erupt with a fantastic array of colors creating Chroma zones and permeating everything and everyone with color magic.

 

The barbarian Havoc became king of this strange land and immediately found himself a target to unknown powerful assassins.

 

Having finally secured a firm grip on governing the planet with the help of the God-like Glamors, Havoc and his companions must now set off in search of seven mysterious ikons in an attempt to learn the secret of the Changelings ... a secret that could answer all of Havoc's questions, or lead him to his doom.

 

To make matters worse, the assassin who killed the former king is now after Havoc!

Q&A With Rhett C. Bruno

The Circuit: Executor Rising - Rhett C. Bruno

Author Rhett C. Bruno has a new science fiction release out from Mundania Press: The Circuit: Executor Rising. Welcome!

 

What inspired you to write The Circuit?
 
A ton of things inspired me. Books I've read, shows I've watched. But I guess the one thing that originally gave me the idea was that in so many SciFi stories artificial gravity is just present, and accepted. I wanted to create a world where there was a price to pay for that ability, and in the Circuit it was the Earth. Everything else sort of sprung from the idea that we ruined the Earth by mining Gravitum and that our solar system was settled because of it. FTL engines are not yet invented in my book.
 
You're in an elevator and have ten seconds to convince a reader to buy your book. What do you say?
 
The Circuit is a story with everything. Post-Apocalyptic elements, the strength of family, revenge, a strong female main character, and even love to an extent. Plus who can say no to an all-powerful android just beginning to stratch the surface of his potential.
 
Who would you say were your biggest writing influences?
 
First and foremost it was my high school English teacher. To this day she continues to read stuff for me, help edit and just give me an opinion. Other than her I guess it would be other authors I've read, none more than Timothy Zahn. The way he's able to jump back and forth between character perspectives is masterful.
 
What are you working on now?
 
Right now I'm working on the sequel to "Executor Rising." I'm also working to earn a screenwriting certificate from the New School, and on a short story titled Titanborn which I may extend into a novel.
 
Can we expect to see you at any book events this year?
 
As of this moment I only have a Book Release Party scheduled at Treme: Blues and Jazz club in Islip, Long Island. More details are on my website: www.rhettbruno.com/.‚Äč Though I'd be happy to have a signing anything, especially if that signing could possibly group together some Mundania authors to help with marketing.

 

About the Book

 

It has been centuries since Earth was rendered a barren, volatile wasteland. With their homeworld left uninhabitable, humanity founded a system of colonies throughout their local solar system. Known as the Kepler Circuit, these settlements are strung together by a network of nonaligned Solar-Ark transports, locked in continuous motion. They have served to provide an influx of resources to every faction ruling over the remnants of humankind, most importantly the newly discovered element Gravitum which is found only in the Earth’s unstable mantle.

By 500 K.C. a religious sect known as the New Earth Tribunal has risen to preside over most of The Circuit. Though there is barely a faction left remaining to challenge them, a string of attacks on their transports force them to summon the enigmatic, yet brilliant, Cassius Vale for help. What they don’t know is that together with his intelligent android creation, ADIM, he is the one orchestrating the raids.

His actions lead to the involvement of Sage Volus, a beautiful Tribunal Executor sent by her masters to spy on their mortal enemies – the Ceresian Pact. In order to find out who is behind the attacks, she infiltrates the ranks of a roguish mercenary named Talon Rayne. Against all her intentions, however, she finds her faith tested by him and his ragtag squad.

While Sage and Talon are engaged in a futile hunt, Cassius Vale initiates his strategy to bring down the narrow-minded Tribune once and for all. But will anyone be able to survive what he has in store for the Circuit?
