HEY, Y’ALL, It’s a Promo Post – Free Range Oyster
Rejoice and be very glad, O my people! By the grace and generosity of Our Beloved Hostess – and since enough of y’all sent me stuff to make a decent post of it – the illustrious Promo Post has returned to spread culture, entertainment, imagination, and filthy lucre amongst all the Huns and Hoydens. We’ve new releases this week, including the latest in the Baba Yaga books that you lot
inflicted on inspired for TXRed.
If I might share a bit of personal news [Ed.: And when have objections ever stopped you?], we received word this week that the Hunnish Horde will be growing by one small member in August of next year. I think the Oyster Wife may be nesting already, but that could just be a reaction to the 20° temperatures here. I must be off to strip the roof off my house (quite literally, the new one goes on Monday), so go read good books and leave constructive reviews. As always, future promo entries can (and should!) be sent to my email. Happy reading!

The Red Horse and the Water of Life
Alexi’s Tale, Part Four
Defeating Chernobog and meeting his life’s partner should have been enough excitement for Alexi’s lifetime. Baba Yaga had other ideas…
Five years after their last meeting, the old forest spirit has overstepped the bounds of legend and power. The Red Horse summons Alexi from Afghanistan to fight another, greater battle. Racing outside of time, Alexi must reach his wife and children before Baba Yaga and another old foe can destroy all that Alexi holds dear.
And before Ivan the Purrable gets his smart phone back.
The Substrate Wars 3
In this third book of the Substrate Wars series, ten years have passed since the student rebels invented quantum gateways and tamed the world’s governments. Replicators have ended hunger and need, and colony planets have allowed everyone who wanted independence to settle new worlds.
This peace and prosperity is threatened when scientists discover evidence that other civilizations have been destroyed by the planet-scouring Shrivers, who intercept an Earth probe and discover Earth’s location in its memory. The rebels and Earth governments have to cooperate to build a defense force to stop the invading Shriver fleet.
Meanwhile, Justin’s daughter Katherine (Kat) has been contacted by the First, the uploaded civilizations that inhabit the substrate as a virtual realm. She is chosen to argue humanity’s case in front of the tribunal which will decide whether humanity will be allowed to upload with the First, or be exterminated by the Shrivers.
