Why would an artificial intelligence conceive and execute that most heinous of human crimes?

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017
Golden
Fleece
by
Robert J. Sawyer
Genre:
SciFi Mystery
 
Winner
of the Aurora Award for best novel of the year. Named best novel of
the year by The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.

 

 


MURDER
IN SPACE

 

 

Starcology
Argo. A superstarship on a mission to a distant world. Controlled by
a monumental computer named JASON, the Argo proceeds flawlessly . . .
until death strikes its sleek decks with sudden and mysterious
precision.

 

 

Astrophysicist
Diana Chandler is dead of radiation. Her body lies in the Argo’s
ramfield — where hydrogen ions are funneled into the engines.
Chandler’s death has been deemed suicide. But her ex-husband, Aaron
Rossman, isn’t so sure. As he probes further, he becomes certain that
Diana’s death is a matter of murder — and that the murderer is
JASON!

 

 

Now
Rossman must face the unthinkable: why would an artificial
intelligence conceive and execute that most heinous of human crimes?
And if so, can a mortal mind take on a cunning computer . . . and
survive?

Starplex
by
Robert J. Sawyer
Genre:
SciFi Adventure
 
The
only novel of its year to be nominated for both the Hugo and Nebula
Awards. Starplex won Canada’s Aurora Award for best novel of the
year.

 

 


For
nearly twenty years Earth’s space exploration had exploded outward,
thanks to a series of mysterious, artificial wormholes. No one knows
who created these interstellar passages, yet they have brought the
far reaches of space immediately close. For Starplex Director Keith
Lansing, too close.

 

 

Discovery
is superseding understanding. And when an unknown vessel — with no
windows, no seams, and no visible means of propulsion — arrives
through a new wormhole, an already battle-scarred Starplex could be
the starting point of a new interstellar war . . .

Award.

 

 


Pierre
Tardivel is a scientist working on the Human Genome Project with the
Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Burian Klimus. A driven man, Pierre works
with the awareness that he may not have long to live: he has a
fifty-fifty chance of dying from Huntington’s disease, an incurable
hereditary disorder of the central nervous system. While he still has
his health, Pierre and his wife decide to have a child, and they
search for a sperm donor. When Pierre informs Dr. Klimus of their
plan, Klimus makes an odd but generous offer: to be the sperm donor
as well as to pay for the expensive in vitro fertilization. Shortly
thereafter it transpires that Klimus might be hiding a grim past: he
may be Ivan Marchenko, the notorious Treblinka death-camp guard known
as Ivan the Terrible.

 

 

While
digging into Klimus’s past with the help of Nazi hunter Avi Meyer,
Pierre and his wife discover that Pierre’s insurance company has been
illegally screening clients for genetic defects. The two lines of
investigation begin to coverage in a sinister manner, while they
worry about the possibility of bearing the child of an evil, sadistic
killer . . .

Her volatile world, is a prison without bars…and a coffin

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017
The
Jane Harvest
The
City Book 1
by
A Nicky Hjort
Genre:
SciFi Fantasy
 
Winning
battles means Ink honors, prestige, and life itself. …Yet nobody
understands what losing truly means.

 

 


On
another planet two hundred years in the future, twenty-one-year-old
Isla Jane struggles helplessly to figure out who she is and what her
world really means. Marked with a forbidden tattoo of the rising sun,
she is a natural champion of humanity and a gifted warrior in Heats–
lavish battles fought in the conjoined minds of the participants for
the morbid amusement of the masses.

 

 

Despite
Isla’s desire to fade into the background, she emerges as an
obvious leader of her people when the senseless assassination of a
youth forces her to face the truth. Her volatile world, disguised by
its elaborate battles and constant mayhem, is a prison without bars
and a coffin, the lid already half-closed, that they must
escape.

 

 

But
when she vows to find a way to bring her people back home, Isla will
have to deconstruct consciousness and the very nature of the space
time continuum to unravel good from evil, truth from lies, and
survival from true love.

 

 

Welcome
to the City–where it takes lives to save lives…

siblings, all of whom have strong creative talents. She currently
lives in coastal central California where she practices medicine as
an Ob/GYN. In between being a lovingly devoted mother and delivering
babies, she writes stories that cross multiple genre lines- from Sci

romantic components. And for her clever reader, all of her
manuscripts are subtly connected to each other, with their purpose to
explore all facets of Love and Light. She likes to say that her

arts, A. Nicky Hjort hopes her stories might inspire you to find your
inner creative genius.
As
for her heroes- they are as varied and eclectic as her choice of
narrative genres, but when pushed to list her favorite influences,
she would say James Patterson, Barbara Kingsolver, Patricia Cornwell,
Dean Koonntz, Gene Roddenberry, Shel Silverstein, Suzanne Collins,
and Walt Disney.
