Time Illusion
Jennifer Li wants her first weeks as spaceship captain to be a success. Getting along with her new crew might be a harder task than she prepared for. The new ship therapist isn’t impressed with Jennifer’s untested command style, and in the aftermath of facing a murderer together Jennifer and her new second in command might have an intense bond or only an awkward acquaintance.

An emergency call redirects her ship to Rommys to face the double threat of a tear in time-space that threatens its residents, and a mysterious woman that knows more about Jennifer than she’s comfortable with. As the time-space anomaly grows, teamwork becomes more important than ever, and if they fail Jennifer could lose more than just the respect of her crew.

Narrowcast Nightmares
Angharad, Jin and Tsuyoshi have survived four months in Zapville. As their overlord sets crueler tests, Angharad struggles to keep their group from falling apart.

All Angharad wants is to get the attention of the alluring, forbidden Josephine without causing any trouble – but she can’t have both. Jin wants to protect the people he loves without reckoning with his past. And Tsuyoshi, rapidly losing hope, wants to protect people from his own capacity for violence.

When Jin, still desperate to leave, forces her to keep searching for a way out, Angharad ends up in the middle of his fight with Tsuyoshi. And when things take a darker and more desperate turn, not everyone they know will survive.

Electric Shock
All sixteen year old Angharad wants is an escape from her constricting family life. When she wakes up on the other side of the Gate what she gets instead is a tighter prison than she’s ever known.

It’s there she meets Tsuyoshi, an angry Canadian art student running from a holiday gone horribly wrong, and Jin, a child soldier who just wants to go back home. With no way out and no way to find their mysterious jailer, they have to rely on strangers caught in the same trap. If they don’t learn to work together the consequences could be lethal.

But the most dangerous games test the fate of their souls. And in this technological trap beyond anything they’ve ever known everyone has secrets and not everyone is who they seem.

Four Bodies in Space
Set on the space ships and space stations of the Union of Allied Planets, Four Bodies in Space follows Commander Solaris, a scientific officer on a small ship that just wants to be left alone to check her experiments in peace. A peace threatened first by the murder of an ambassador and then by the friendly overtures of his emotionally volatile widow. With her ship in danger and her future on the line, Solaris can’t hold back her curiosity about the murder.

Into this mess steps newly promoted Captain Li, eager and a little too friendly, and fascinated by the psychic gift Solaris considers her greatest burden. Solaris would rather cling to everything she holds dear than accept the difficulty of something new and untried even if pushing away Captain Li’s help risks damage to her career and the people she wants to protect, but fleeing from Jennifer Li’s hand in friendship could mean falling into the killer’s hands instead…
