A Face in the Sky

 

Who would’ve thought that doomsday could be so much fun? Though the characters in Greg Jenkins’s new novel A Face in the Sky may not always enjoy what happens, readers certainly will.

An apocalyptic tale with literary flair, A Face in the Sky delivers a leavening dose of dark, irreverent humor. Among the characters are a befuddled business professor, a retired (and roguish) major league baseball player, an adult film actress, and a playwright who aspires to being a terrorist. In unique ways, each of them must confront what may be the end of the world.

Augments of Change
by Kelvin Christopher James

 

Kelvin Christopher James gives a glimpse of the deterioration of world affairs and climatic conditions through the lives of a few people: a diverse group of billionaires, a family of southern Rednecks, a Black lawyer, an attractive female manipulator, and a trio of teenagers. Their voices tell this rollicking, rambunctious tale of contemporary circumstances gone awry—of the consequence of rich peoples’ greed and selfishness; of a scrambling Missouri family forced from their homestead as a result of fracking that moves to New York where they have to adjust and acquire new ways of living; of the enormous influence of billionaire visions; and of the subtle workings of women’s soft power to make ‘things’ better.

Then just when Change takes a positive stance, there comes an invasive force from deep space! Not the big-headed, odd-colored, funny-eyed creatures of our comic-booked expectations, but . . .

Aha! Not so fast. Telling would be messing with well-deserved anticipation, wouldn’t it?

After the space invaders, the exciting action only kicks up another notch. So be in good cheer, for all of it in fluid prose, Augments of Change offers up romance, adventure, thrills of gain, pain of loss, horror and rare beauty, true science practice and actual innovation, breathless speculations, and always, terrific entertainment.

Augments of Change


by Kelvin Christopher James
Release date: June 15, 2016
Genre: cli-fi, Suspense
Price: $22.95
ISBN: 978-1-941861-16-5

“With this novel, Kelvin Christopher James enters the world of cli-fi and touches on themes that, post-COP21’s climate talks in Paris in late 2015, are current and vital.”

—Dan Bloom, editor, The Cli-Fi Report

“Augments of Change weaves a narrative which predicts the problems of our lifestyle on the environment and society, and offers solutions, which don’t always get the attention they deserve. As a science teacher, I find what-ifs? a fascinating entry point to start the multitude of consequences that are actions may and already do have.

—David Sadoff, 7th grade The Way Things Work Teacher @ Quest 2 Learn

Praise for Kelvin’s Jumping Ship and Other Stories:

“A warm and gifted raconteur.”

New York Times

Praise for A Fling for a Demon Lover:

“James (Fling with a Demon Lover) turns a love letter to Trinidad into this stylish literary novel filled with sensuous prose and colorful setting.”

Publishers Weekly

Praise for Secrets, A novel:

“Incantatory . . . the finest novel to come out of the Caribbean
experience since V.S. Naipaul’s A House for Mr. Biswas.”

—Washington Post

“James (Secrets; A Fling with a Demon Lover) introduces readers to the crazy quilt of ethnicities, cultures, and religions that make up the island of Trinidad. He writes in a Trinidadian lilt that is catchy, charming, and much like calypso. Following Vivion around New York is like trying to do the limbo. How low can he go without hitting the ground? And observing the group of smart capable women who keep Vivion on track is a salute to feminism at its most delightful. This is a romance with life well worth reading.”

Library Journal, Andrea Kempf

A Weapon to End War

 

What if the foremost scientist in the field of nanotechnology and microrobotics decided to use his inventions to take our world leaders hostage and enact his own political agenda? Dr. J. Maurice Carpenter has worked for decades at the Brookhaven National Laboratory on a top-secret government project to develop a terrifying new breed of weaponry. Launching an attempt to take over the world, Carpenter implants microscopic robots in the bodies of the President of United States and his family members. The only hope for stopping Carpenter is a Los Angeles-based FBI agent named Bill Maddox, who is more accustomed to working simple narcotics cases than handling crises of such magnitude. In far over his head but determined to prove his worth, Maddox plunges into a labyrinth of danger, matching wits against an intellect far superior to his own. In doing so, he confronts a femme fatale and a technology potentially more deadly than any the world has ever witnessed. More frightening still, it is a technology that actually exists today.

“Ross is a powerful new voice on the thriller scene. He takes the best of Le Carre, Clancy and Ludlum and winds it up with a timely, riveting commentary on the sociopolitical threats that lie beneath the surface of the nightly news. You won’t be able to put this book down.”

—RIP GERBER, author of the best-selling thrillers PHARMA and KILLER VIRUS
