Saving Death by Angel Favazza
Jace’s home planet, Zar 5, was taken over by the Xon to control the galaxy's shipping trade. But ten thousand Kataree survived and fled to a planet several hundred light-years away. There they built a shanty town anomaly called, Cian. It was dirty and overcrowded. The adults wanted everyone to stay close together until the perimeters were locally secured.
As for Jace and his crew, well, they didn’t care about what the adults wanted. Not long ago after their arrival on Cian, Jace started the Kataree militia. The Kataree goal was simple: arm themselves, train and return back to Zar 5, find the annual historian, reclaim the data chips from the year of their evacuation and destroy it so that they can reset time. It was the ultimate time paradox: Would apprehending and then destroying the data restore them back to a time of peace or would it ruin them all? None of them knew for sure, but it was a cause they were willing to die for.
There were seven members. And they all know that Jace would die for any of them . . . except one.

Vow of Blood by Debby Feo
What was it like to be a vampire in Rome in 84 A.D.? Gaius Domitius Tubero knew well. The life he was forced to live was not a happy one. Scorned by most, he was lucky to have even survived being forced into the dangerous streets of Roma, at a very young age. To stay alive, Gaius had to drink blood. Blood was easy to find, in and around the Coliseum, during the reigns of Caligula and Nero. Sometimes it was the blood of an enemy. Sometimes it was that of a friend. And sometimes both.
It's been said that one should keep one's friends close, and enemies closer. The problem in the Rome of Caligula and Nero was to determine which was which. In the process of finding out, Gaius learns that while he might be immortal, he was not invulnerable. And the stakes were too high to risk making a mistake.

Bubbaku edited by L. A. Story Sikora
Bubbaku is a collection of haiku poems for the more enlightened redneck. Many in the target audience would not be caught dead reading poetry, so it might be wise to keep this volume in the outhouse, or locked in the glove box of the pickup, to be read while waiting for the light to change.
Haiku, as all y'all know, is a Japanese poetry form consisting of three lines. There are some syllable rules for haiku, but they don't apply to Bubbaku or to Bubbas--just like speed limit signs, calorie counters, born-on mason jar dates, and hunting and fishing restrictions. To give you an idea of what's inside, check out the following:

bubbaku #2

We had some fun with this, folks. We hope you will, too.
