We Wish You A Merry Promo- Free Range Oyster
Festive greetings, O my people! This has been a great week for promo submissions. We’ve several new releases, some older ones on sale, and some lovely covers among them both (just hanging out here has made me more attentive to covers; running the promo has made me a downright snob). I’ve heard rumor that there may be listings of good books elsewhere as well this weekend *cough*MGC*cough*, so please sound off in the comments if you know of more good stuff to be found. Go, read books! Buy books! Borrow books (and return them)! Give books as gifts! Give books as bonuses! Give books in leiu of payment if they’ll let you! Tell people about good books you’ve read, and leave reviews on every appropriate outlet. Let peace, goodwill, and awesome stories FILL THE EARTH! As always, future promo entries can (and should!) be sent to my email. Happy reading!

They’re not looking for adventure in the stars… but they’re not going to back down just because something got in their way.

A wave of possibilities rolls across the land and nothing remains the same IN ITS WAKE … Dinosaurs. Dragons. Clowns. From nineteenth-century China to the moons of Saturn, from the Renaissance to the aftermath of apocalypse, these eighteen stories share one theme–change, like you’ve never seen it before. NOW, EVERYTHING CHANGES! Read stories penned by Aurora, Hugo, and Nebula Award winners, as well as up-and-coming authors, in a single volume.
Includes a story by our own Christopher Chupik
Gilead Tan and Andrea Fielding survived their stint in the military, got married, signed up to emigrate to a terraformed colony world, and went into cold sleep for the journey from Earth. While they slept, the starship got lost and settled for a different world, a wild world. Three centuries after the founding of a colony on the uncharted planet, Gilead awakens to find humanity slipped back to medieval tech and a feudal structure. Worse, the king who wants Gilead awake won’t let Gilead awaken his wife.
Michael Anderson never thought he would set foot on a world like Earth. Born and raised in a science colony on the farthest edge of the solar system, he only studied planets from afar. But when his parents build mankind’s first wormhole and discover a world emitting a mysterious artificial signal, Michael is the only qualified planetologist young enough to travel to the alien star.
He is not alone on this voyage of discovery. Terra, his sole mission partner, is no more an adult than he is. Soon after their arrival, however, she begins acting strangely—as if she’s keeping secrets from him. And her darkest secret is one that Michael already knows.
Twenty light-years from the nearest human being, they must learn to work together if they’re ever going to survive. And what they discover on the alien planet forces them to re-examine their deepest, most unquestioned beliefs about the universe—and about what it means to be human.
