Some Great Stories for March

Last month was a little crazy for us but we did manage to get three new ebooks published for you, our wonderful readers. Max Brand, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Victor Rousseau were in the house!

Brand was represented by The Garden of Eden, called a "masterpiece" at the time. An allegorical story complete with a snake represented by a gambler. Fascinating how we're introduced to the snake at the beginning....

Burroughs gave us the The Moon Trilogy, a trio of stories that starts with his well honed science fiction of astronauts visiting the Moon and finding a hidden civilization, proceeds to a dystopian military dictatorship on Earth, and in the third story bears witness to a Second American Revolution. This story is quite a bit darker than his usual fare but well worth a read if you've never encountered it before. (Special thanks to the Carolina Calots ERB group for introducing us to this book.)

Rousseau's Ivan Brodsky, Surgeon of Souls rounded out our ebook production. Lost and broken souls come to Dr. Ivan Brodsky and he does what he must to repair them. These classic stories were originally published in 1910 and 1911 and then republished in Weird Tales in 1926 and 1927.

Our first print title, 42 Days For Murder by Roger Torrey was finally published, but not on Amazon. You can find it at Barnes & Noble. It turns out that we'll only be able to publish SOME of our print titles on Amazon. The full print set will apparently only be available on B&N. (Don't ask. It's a long frustrating story.) Nevertheless, look for more print offerings in the near future, and hopefully on both platforms.
Now, the only question left to answer is... What do we have on sale this month?

On Sale This Month.

Some good reads. Some fun action and adventures. Some of our old favorites. Enjoy!
Time Quarry (1950) by Clifford D. Simak – In the 80th century, an astronaut, presumed lost for twenty years, returns to Earth. However, a time traveler comes back from the future and tries to have him killed before he can write a book and spread dangerously subversive beliefs.

Gunsmoke On The Arrow (1946) – Rank-proud Major George Brandon led his troops down a redskin glory-trail. And only a renegade shavetail knew that trail ended in bloody Sioux massacre on the open prairie!
A four chapter novelette.
Scalp Harvest (1946) – Only one man could keep the seething caldron of the Sioux Reservation from spilling over and becoming a whooping, blood-crazed torrent threatening to drown the little settlement.

A five chapter novelette.
There’s Blood On His Star (1948) – Golden Billy Smith, Marshal of Clover City, backed the law with a soft voice and a loud Colt, until a bust-head boom-town honky-tonk bouncer tried to prove that two hard fists could beat two fast guns!

Three ex-Army buddies, not ready to settle down to civilian life, are looking for adventure in the post-war world.

Troyana (1932) – The second of the Troyana Series, Nankivell brings the adventurers back to Troyana to save it from a rebellion by the black robed Atlanteans.

Coward In The Game (1946) – Battlefield or Football Field, They Both Take Guts – But Maybe a Different Kind
Voodoo Express by Theodore Roscoe is a pair of novelettes about Haiti, voodoo, zombies, shrunken heads and drums – the incessant drumming from the hills that drives men mad.
The Little Doll Died (1940) – Haiti is a dark place where you may live for years and know less about it than when you came; where human relationships clash discordantly in the sinister tropic air; where people speak only in whispers of the zombies—those soulless creatures, the un-dead dead. And there a Leatherneck once saw a dead man rise.
An eleven chapter novella.
The Voodoo Express (1931) – The boom and echo of Haiti’s mountain drums worked in the blood of Conrad Yole, and made the legend of a ghost railroad come alive.
