Bedtime Stories for the Apocalypse by Joel Arnold
Got your nightlight on?
A man journeys with a pregnant stranger, while unseen aliens deal out punishment from above.
A phone call in the middle of the night reminds someone of a chilling mission.
A priest’s skin oozes a healing elixir.
Are your blankets pulled up tight?
A self-absorbed husband monitors the end of his existence over the Internet.
A teenager digs through a deep crust of waste and bone to win his freedom.
A school field trip reveals a disturbing method for protecting our children.
Are all your doors locked?
If so, then perhaps you’re ready for Joel Arnold’s Bedtime Stories for the Apocalypse.
“Joel Arnold is the real deal. He elicits a subtle element of terror and justice through his writing, delivered without a heavy hand. His exceptional imagery effects readers in a way that leaves them chilled and disturbed; causing the kind of behavior that will have friends asking "what's bothering you," for days afterwards." D.L. Russell, editor of Strange, Weird & Wonderful Magazine.

Celeraine by David McGillveray
Celeraine, published in trade paperback format by Sam's Dot Publishing, consists of three interplanetary science fiction stories by British author David McGillveray. Each story presents a specific problem that humanity might expect to encounter as it moves among the stars one day.
In "The Grieving," the Kellie colony has failed and the Whaskera are dead. Lammas must find out why, and why the woman he loved has been lost in space and time.
In "Celeraine," people get the governments they deserve, but the Somnambulist, a repository of Earth history, can give the Azou Home so much more. But if they don't want it, will Earth force it on them?
In "Ryme's Garden," an alien life form takes over the vegetation, and the birds have not returned. It's time to get out the half-track lawndogs. But is Ryme ready for the changes?
CELERAINE is an E-ride into three interplanetary worlds you won't forget.

Christina's World by Marge B. Simon
Christina's World by Marge B. Simon is a themed sequence of speculative short stories inspired by Andrew Wyeth's painting of the same title. Here's what Mary Turzillo had to say about it:
“If you’re unfamiliar with the fiction of Marge Simon, you’re in for a treat with Christina’s World. And if you’re already a fan of her poetry and flash fiction, you’ll be delighted with this new experiment in narrative, where individual linked stories build to their own resolution, and yet form a brilliantly fulfilling story arc.
“Christina’s World recalls classic Bradbury and Murakami with a touch of Norman Rockwell’s homespun wisdom and Tim Burton’s weirdness thrown in; an unfurling of sweet homey narrative, dreamlike yet compellingly realistic in intensity.
“And her illustrations are much more than frosting on the cake. This book is a gem you’ll read and reread."

Ecotastrophe edited by J Alan Erwine
ECOTASTROPHE is a collection of short stories and poetry that examines futures we could face if we continue to damage Earth’s ecology.
The oceans are dying and only desperate measures could save them in Jan Mortimer’s The Empty Ocean. Michelle Mellon’s Undiscovered Horizons questions whether we can truly find the answers out among the stars, or can we only hope to change the future by changing the past as Rebecca S.W. Bates postulates in Walking the River. Also featuring the works of JE Gurley, Bruce Boston, E. Catherine Tobler, Kristine Ong Muslim, and Adam Banks, among others, ECOTASTROPHE is a grim but illuminating view of several possible ecological futures for humanity.

Just Because
James Bruce Baker was best known as the editor and publisher of ProMart Publishing, but he was more than that. Jim was also a poet, a novelist, a short story writer, and an opinionated essayist.
Just Because is a collection of his stories, poems, and essays put together as a tribute to a man who did so much for the small press, and so much for many small press writers, poets, and artists.
Jim dreamed of mankind going to space, and he dreamed of the human race improving itself and finally growing up. Here you will find just a sampling of his blueprint.

Like Birds In The Rain by Marge Simon
Michael Arnzen has this to say about Like Birds In The Rain: ". . . presents a stunning series of literary character studies and poetic flash fictions that are remarkably colorful, slyly cagy, and certainly one of a kind. From twists of dark irony to eruptions of spontaneous wonder, these slices of life cut to the marrow. Simon, a masterful visual artist, always brings a painter's eyes to her fiction and her poetry. In this outstanding new collection she dapples her brush across an emotional canvas to reveal an interior landscape unlike anything she has gifted us with before."
