Steve Moore has added another entertaining sci-fi novel to his extensive catalog with this new ebook about how an ET virus reshapes human society and affects future space exploration.

“Husk” by J. Kent Messum, Sci-Fi thriller by award winning author now available.
It’s the all too near future, and eternal life is a commodity only available to the ultra-rich. Billionaires pay top dollar to exist forever in a virtual world once their bodies have failed them. But this first foray into immortality is not all it’s cracked up to be. The computerized afterlife leaves the immortal hollow and unfulfilled. Anyone who cheats death only wants to live again naturally, itching to interact with the real world.
Young and handsome Rhodes is a Husk whoring himself out to the wealthy who pay to inhabit his body, using his brain while his consciousness sleeps. During these sessions clients take hard drugs, have promiscuous sex, and participate in extreme dare-devil behaviors, all to feel the rush and pleasures of being alive. Husking is a highly illegal and well guarded secret, relegated to the black market. The penalties are severe, but the money and perks are lucrative.
After repeatedly Husking for one particularly demanding client, Rhodes begins to suffer the mental toll for losing himself in his work. When the strange schizophrenic visions and panic attacks start, he tries to get out More >
“The Norma Gene” by M. E. Roufa is a hilarious graft of science fiction and pop culture… When Abe Lincoln and Marilyn Monroe clones meet, you won’t believe what happens next!
Abe Finkelstein is an illegal clone of Abraham Lincoln – not an easy thing to keep secret when your face is on money. Norma Greenberg, one of the world’s hundreds of Marilyn Monroe clones, is wrestling with identity issues of a different sort. It’s not easy living as a perfect copy of the beautiful Norma Jean Baker!
When Abe is kidnapped by government agents eager to discover the secrets of his illustrious ancestor, Norma could be Abe’s last hope of escape – or thanks to her barely suppressed kleptomania, his worst chance of recapture.
With only their wits, a cigarette lighter, a bottle of perfume, and the disembodied arm of Richard Millhouse Nixon (don’t ask), can Abe and Norma make it back to safety and anonymity?
Set in Orlando, Florida, where artifice beats authenticity with one animatronic hand tied behind its back, The Norma Gene features a host of Abe Lincolns, a gaggle of Marilyns, a segway chase through the secret underground tunnels of the Magic Kingdom, More >

Scientific Book Examines an Ancient Race in “The Greatest Story NEVER Told” by Elvis Newman.
“You have to know the past to understand the present.” – Dr. Carl Sagan
The Greatest Story NEVER Told looks back to a civilization that seemed to emerge out of nowhere more than 5,000 years ago in Mesopotamia, in what is now southern Iraq. The Sumerians were perhaps the most extraordinary people who ever lived on the planet. They single-handedly invented civilization and a writing system, when most of the world was still living in the Stone Age. And they did it thousands of years before anyone else.
The Sumerian civilization was already ancient when it ended in 2004 B.C., 20 centuries before Julius Caesar, 16 centuries before Socrates, and seven centuries before Tutankhamen. The study of Sumerian clay tablets continue to interest researchers in the fields of science, history, archaeology, cosmology, linguistics, and others.
Over the ages, scientific theories that were once considered fact were later proven wrong. No one knows when a better scientific theory will come along to replace the old. But one thing is for certain: without studying history and the peoples who contributed to make what it More >

With the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaching, nurse and author, Lisa Karlin is pleased to announce the release of her new memoir, “Below The Water Line.”
In this intensely personal and moving memoir, Lisa Karlin provides a gripping account of her family’s hurricane evacuation experiences and all that followed in the decade after Hurricane Katrina. Her story begins in August 2005, when Lisa, her husband, thirteen-year-old daughter, eleven-year-old son, and two dogs evacuated New Orleans for what they thought would be a two-day “hurrication.”
Her day-by-day account of the weeks that follow vividly chronicles the unprecedented displacement of thousands of Americans, and on a personal level, describes how her family makes the trifecta of major life decisions: where to live, where to work, and where to enroll their children in school. With unflinching candor, Lisa Karlin provides a first-hand commentary on how everyday life has been impacted by Katrina’s aftermath and how, a decade later, there are still lingering effects of one of the most devastating events in American history.
Below the Water Line is available for purchase in both print and ebook formats and at Amazon.com.

“Il-Gruffle’ / The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson is a delightfully irreverent story about a mouse and an imaginary monster, sure to please grown-ups as well as children.
The classic children’s picture book Il-Gruffle’ / The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, translated into Maltese by Toni Aquilina, D. es L., and Joanne Micallef, M.A.
A mouse is taking a stroll through the deep, dark wood when along comes a hungry fox, then an owl, and then a snake. The mouse is good enough to eat but smart enough to know this, so he invents . . . the gruffalo! As Mouse explains, the gruffalo is a creature with terrible claws, and terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, and knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. But Mouse has no worry to show. After all, there’s no such thing as a gruffalo. . . .
From Publishers Weekly:
The eponymous character introduced by this British team owes a large debt to Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. When Mouse meets Fox in the “deep dark wood,” he invents a story about the gruffalo, described very much like Sendak’s fearsome quartet of wild More >
