The Autopsy of Planet Earth: Part One
RJ Eastwood brings us a really interesting and deep alien encounter sci fi story with The Autopsy of Planet Earth: Part One! When aliens arrive on Earth, it understandably shakes up society. But not all is as it seems, and soon Chief of Staff Gabriel Ferro and Dr. Catherine Blake find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy of interplanetary proportions. I love how Eastwood rooted this alien encounter in realism and interesting relatable characters, something that really drew me into the plot! It felt very possible, and the conspiracy thriller element kept me turning pages all the way to the cliffhanger ending! Eastwood packs some fantastic twists, so if you love sci fi, alien encounters, or conspiracy thrillers, definitely come take part in The Autopsy of Planet Earth!
The Fighting Detective Series
Blair Denholm brings us the exciting collection of his hardboiled detective Jack Lisbon series The Fighting Detective! Having read all of these before, it was really fun to see this twisting series all in one place. Jack Lisbon is a tough talking, no nonsense ex boxer cop who finds himself in some difficult cases. He’s a great character, gruff and kickbutt, but Denholm also adds a lot of depth to him over the course of the series. In addition to the great characters and truly surprising cases, this series packs a lot for sports lovers as each of the cases has a sports element to it. If you love sports or tough talking crime mysteries and haven’t checked this one out yet, definitely dive in with The Fighting Detective box set!
Simon Bullock brings us a quirky, humorous, off-the-rails alien encounter with Toxic Beer! When a group of drunk aliens spring a toxic leak on their ship, they land on our Moon to make repairs. Unfortunately, part of that process involves dumping toxic waste on Earth while making a quick beer run, something that leads to a chaotic encounter with the humans. Bullock brings a lot of dry humor in to create this off-the-rails adventure that makes it an all around fun examination of our place in the universe, similar to Hitchhiker’s Guide! It’s quirky and out there, similar to Evolution, so if you’re looking for something a little out of this world, grab your breathalyzer and check out Toxic Beer!
