THE HORSEWOMAN

By Karen Bergstralh

Karen Bergstralh was one of the early pioneers of what became the massive, multi-author Ring of Fire alternate history series. Her first published story, “One Man’s Junk,” appeared in the fourth issue of the Grantville Gazette electronic magazine that is devoted to the series—the fourth issue of what are now ninety-six issues.

Karen passed away years ago, sadly. But here, finally, all her stories and articles are collected in a single commemorative volume.

DEMON LORD OF ELYSIUM

By Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett

In this third book of the Demon Rift series we get a look at how things work on the demon side of the veils between the worlds—and how adventuring looks to the servants who go along to cook the meals and take care of the wagons. And how a demon in the form of a dinosaur ended up the majordomo of Carl’s Not So Bad Caverns.

SUBWAY IN THE SKY

BY NATHAN B. DODGE

RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 26, 2021

Scotty and Bobby, genius electrical and computer engineers, have developed a system that sets up a stable wormhole between two points. Together with Kaley, the best technical field rep in the solar system, they and their company are establishing travel portals all over Earth, and also on the moon, Mars, Mercury, plus several of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Their company, Subway Solar Systems, is growing like crazy, and the future looks bright. What could go wrong?

Lots of things, it turns out. An alien race from the far reaches of space has taken control of a portal on Titan and started an invasion. They are rapidly taking over the outer solar system, and Earth’s military forces may not be able to stop the attack.

Just to make things perfect, the personal lives of the three people who created Subway Solar Systems are a mess as well. Scotty’ wife wants a divorce, Bobby’s boyfriend is causing him constant trouble, and maybe Scotty’s relationship with Kaley isn’t just based on their jobs.

CASTAWAYS OF NEW MOJAVE

BY DAVID BRIN & JEFF CARLSON

BOOK #2 OF DAVID BRIN’S HIGH HORIZON SERIES

RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 2, 2021

Interstellar kidnapping . . . or opportunity?

A thousand teens and their teachers were stunned when the alien Garubis yanked Twenty-Nine Palms High School right out of California’s Mojave desert, plopping it into a jungle many light years away. It was supposed to be a “gift”—a new settlement for humanity. But tell that to Mark, Alexandra, Barry and Sophie when strange parasites attack . . . and they don’t know what to eat . . . and the island of Earth-buildings runs out of water!

Some claim to have spotted strange tool-users in the forest. Are the Garubis back? Or is this some other possible alien menace?

Whatever the skyjacked teenagers and their small number of adult companions face, they will need guts, ingenuity, hard work… and luck! But maybe the worst threat will come from the former students themselves. From basic human nature.

THE SICILIAN COIL

BY GORG HUFF & PAULA GOODLETT

RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 9, 2021

The impact of the time transposition that brought a twenty-first century cruise ship to the Hellenic world right after the death of Alexander the Great continues to unfold. While President Al Wiley is building a new America in Trinidad and Captain Lars Floden is trying to use the Queen of the Sea to spread enlightenment around the world, Rome is experiencing a wakeup call—and so are its neighbors. If things don’t change, the Roman republic is going to become a dictatorship. And if things don’t change, the Samnites, Etruscans and other Italian states will become subjects of the Roman Empire.

And what’s worse, the heirs of Alexander the Great aren’t the sort of people who are going to stay within their borders and let the rest of Europe—or Asia, or North Africa—work out their own destinies.

It would be bad enough to be subjects of Rome. To be subjects of the Macedonians was something you wouldn’t wish on a Gaul.

Something must be done. And with the help of the radio teams that give Rome and the other Italian states access to the knowledge from the twenty-first century, something will be.

SCHROEDINGER’S FRISBEE

BY DAVID R. PALMER

RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 16, 2021

A middle-agish college professor, Harold, and his dog, HardDrive, together with Olivia Zoë Maria Anderson, their newly acquired potential girlfriend, have been collected by aliens, who have a history of detonating suns of species who seem likely to cause them future inconvenience. Mankind’s history seems to qualify Sol as a prime candidate for demolition at their earliest convenience. Apparently it’s up to Harold, Olivia Zoë Maria, and HardDrive to save the world. No pressure…
