Post-Human: The future should have been perfect. Microscopic robots known as nans could repair any damage to your body, keep you young by resetting your cellular clocks, and allow you to download upgrades like intelligence, muscle strength, and eyesight. You were supposed to be able to have anything you wanted with a simple thought, to be able to fly without the aid of a machine, to be able to live forever. But when a small group of five terraformers working on Venus return to Earth, they discover that every other human in the solar system has been gruesomely murdered. Now, James Keats and his four companions must discover what happened to the rest of humanity and fight back if they wish to avoid the same, horrifying fate. Welcome to the post-human era.
Trans-Human: In this sequel to Post-Human, humanity will be forced to face a future more advanced than it could have imagined if it wants to survive. Nineteen months have passed since the AI turned against humanity and was subsequently destroyed. In the meantime, James Keats has turned over the AI's powers to a non-intelligent, easily controlled operating system. He and Thel have left the planet and spent six months vacationing on Venus, which has been newly terraformed without the consent or knowledge of the Governing Council. The AI has been deleted, but the message it sent out into the abyss of space in search of a companion has been answered. An alien force dwarfing the Earth is on its way to find out why the AI has stopped communicating. Keats and company can only assume its intentions will be hostile when it finds out the truth. Only one thing is for sure: nothing will ever be the same again. Welcome to the Trans-Human era. Welcome to the singularity.

IS THIS OUR RECKONING?

CAN MY STORY HAVE A HAPPILY EVER AFTER? CAN IT HAVE ANY EVER AFTER?
The House of Dark Music is a story about families. It focuses on how families stay together, even after they fall apart. The main character, Jerry, is a young boy dealing with a painful past, a fractured family, and another summer dealing with peers he doesn't fit in with. During the summer, Jerry learns that different families handle tragedies in their own ways. As he struggles to deal with misconceptions, rumors, and new friendships, Jerry learns about himself and what makes a family.
Crammed into battered buses and less than road worthy bush taxis, or hanging on to the back of a series of pollution spewing mopeds, Tom Coote journeys along the lush but disease ridden Slave Coast of West Africa and then up through the Saharan trade routes into the environmentally devastated dust lands of the Sahel. Travelling through Benin, Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso and Mali - some of the poorest and least developed countries in the world - we find ourselves amidst a battleground of 'end of days' ideologies.
Dealing with such themes as freedom and slavery, the resurgence of superstition and its threat to rationality, the corporate colonisation of the unconscious, and the modern day construction of tradition, this irreverent travelogue will take you to places both magical and macabre.
The Firemancer Collection includes Books 1, 2 and 3 from the Fated Saga Fantasy Series: Awaken, Shifting and Embrace.
Summer fun is coming! And other than turning thirteen, twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, are looking forward to a typical summer... well, typical for them. Which means their uncle (and guardian) will pull into the Cobbscott Campground and park his travel trailer for three full months.
Normally, they'd never spend more than a couple weeks in any one place, their uncle preferring to move around. But only until summer when they'd be Cobbscott bound.
Why did he do this every summer? Why did he prefer to move around? The twins have never thought to ask. Their only concern being that their friend Sebastien would be in Cobbscott as well... the one person who also happens to know their secret- that they can read each other's minds.
Arrival at the campground goes as expected and within hours, Meghan and Colin are already making plans to meet up with Sebastien. But before they do, the campground gets some unexpected visitors.
Visitors with reserved campsites. Sites that have been reserved, but unused, for years. The twins always wondered who reserved and never used these campsites and now that they have seen the owners, the twins can't help but get an ominous feeling.
These visitors dress strange and act strange, taking hikes into the woods wearing winged tipped shoes and overcoats, disappearing into things clearly too small to fit so many people, and they never stop peering into the sky as if expecting to see something terrible.
And when unexplainable and frightening events follow their arrival, the twins realize that this summer, will be their least typical of all...
