SCIENCE FICTION LACKEY

Into the West / Mercedes Lackey

Baron Valdemar and his people have found a temporary haven, but it cannot hold all of them, or for long. Trouble could follow on their heels at any moment, and there are too many people for Crescent Lake to support. Those who are willing to make a further trek by barge on into the West will follow him into a wilderness depopulated by war and scarred by the terrible magics of a thousand years ago and the Mage Wars. But the wilderness is not as “empty” as it seems. There are potential friends and rapacious foes and someone is watching them.

SCIENCE FICTION TAVARES

A Fractured Infinity / Nathan Tavares

A documentary filmmaker is surprised when a handsome physicist presents the Envisioner, a mysterious device that can predict the future and shows him a parallel world where the pair are married, one in an infinite number of possibilities.

SCIENCE FICTION WEBER

A Call to Insurrection / David Weber

Yesterday, the Star Kingdom of Manticore was a small, unimportant interstellar backwater with no navy, but today, Manticore has become a target. The Star Kingdom isn’t certain who is attacking it or why, but Queen Elizabeth I knows she has to find out. She knows that whatever some of her subjects think, Manticore needs a navy. And it needs allies—friends like the dynamic Republic of Haven and the Andermani Empire. It needs their trade and to learn from their more experienced and powerful navies.
