Genre: Science Fiction

Ames. A thousand cities together could not compare to the immensity of the metropolis that rules its mighty continent. Where silver outlines of the towers reach upward past the clouds yet rooted in the darker depths of the base city. Where multilane freeways burrow for miles twenty lanes across and five or more lanes deep. A city of cities. This is what hundreds of millions call home. This is Ames.

But the unified city is dividing. Warlords to the north and south have begun to tear it in two and a dreaded no-man’s land grows where the two meet. And yet, this civil war is but only a piece of a larger struggle to come. Something far beneath the city is about to be discovered.

By John Gaiserich
Published: October 2015
ISBN: 978-1517528638
ASIN: B017CCHV1E
Pages: 644
Genre: Dystopian

Twenty-five years after the eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano and the massive war that followed, the scattered, dwindling remnants of the human race are forced to eke out a primordial existence while the supply of a drug vital to their survival is controlled by a group of greedy Oligarchs. For those born before the disaster, those called the Prelapsarians, the future looks hopeless. But there are some who choose to resist.

In the south of Russia, a band of retired mercenaries, led by the formidable Andrei Evgenyevich Myshkin, seeks to undermine the Oligarchs’ power. Their ardor is invigorated when they join forces with Ani Ohanyan, a headstrong, idealistic young smuggler with a dream of a brighter future and a penchant for getting herself into trouble. Together, their quest takes them across the Caucasus Mountains, through the ruins of once-prosperous cities, and to the shores of the Caspian Sea, faced along the way with backroom intrigue, fierce battles, and brewing tension that threatens to turn them against one another. But amidst their trials, the greatest struggles they face may be against their own demons.

No one is certain what is going on or who is behind it, until a man in a hospital describes what he witnessed at a pumping station in the Alaska pipeline and things seem to start falling into place. Cave and his friends begin to formulate a plan, but the only question is are they going to be able to solve this mystery and save civilization before it is too late.

Genre: Science Fiction

The discovery of an ancient alien artifact is causing extremely destructive weather patterns in the northern hemisphere, and only Alex Cave can save us from another ice age.

A climatologist discovers that a massive sheet of transparent ice in the Arctic Ocean is expanding by thousands of square miles in a matter of minutes, but no one can explain how the water could freeze so quickly. Weather patterns change for the worse and threaten a catastrophe that will affect the entire world.

As various government agencies struggle to find a solution, they all converge on a single man: Alex Cave, a professor of geophysics, whose previous experience with ancient alien artifacts makes him the only man capable of solving this mystery. As a special adviser to the Director of National Security, Alex is given special powers to find out the cause, and preferably prevent a disaster in the making. He is an ex-CIA operative, and more than capable of dealing with those who try to thwart his efforts to find a speedy solution.

Alex leads a small band of volunteers in a desperate attempt to remedy the situation before civilization faces ecological disaster, but Alex is thwarted by those in their number who have their own agenda, and the interference of a group of well-organized modern day pirates further complicates their mission to save humanity from extinction.

Hidden treasure, betrayal, and self-sacrifice play a defining role in this roller coaster tale by this bestselling and award-winning author.

Genre: Science Fiction

The color of your eyes will determine whether you live or die, and only geologist Alex Cave can save the majority of our population from annihilation.

Alex had discovered four alien artifacts that seemed designed to destroy all life on our planet. He thought they were locked up at a secret facility in Nevada, away from unscrupulous industrialists and scientists, but two of the devices have gone missing, and one of them is in orbit over our planet.

The signal is detected from deep inside the Earth by a powerful artificial intelligence, who claims ownership of our planet for its genetically superior race of humans, which have been in stasis for 180-million-years. It wakes a beautiful woman named Pandora and takes control of her mind and body, and only Alex can see that her blue eyes actually sparkle. She demands that we voluntarily kill everyone with brown eyes because of their genetic tendency for violent behavior, or the A.I. will destroy our entire race to keep us from contaminating her people. Can Alex find a way out of this no-win situation?

Science Fiction – The Sightseers Agency

the-sightseers-agencyThe Sightseers Agency
Dreadnought Collective, Book 5
By Terry Tumbler
Publisher: Sombrella
Published: August 2016
ISBN: 978-1513607641
ASIN: B01KBAKX1E
Pages: 378
Genre: Science Fiction

The first recruit to the new Sightseers Agency is a remote viewer who actively seeks the resolution of events threatening world security.

Both his fledgling agency and that of The Deaduction Agency are members of The Dreadnought Collective.

The term ‘Dreadnought’ is based on a type of battleship introduced in the early 20th century, larger and faster than ever before and equipped entirely with large-caliber guns.

It applies in this instance because the cerebrally talented agents who enter its portals are expected to fear nobody and be scared by nothing in the performance of their duties.

They pursue those who indulge in criminal and seditious activities in the modern meritocracy using unorthodox techniques.

The Collective will embrace several types of Black Arts as it grows and faces unusual challenges. These once belonged to the realms of Science Fiction but are fast becoming a reality in the emerging new world.

This is a series of Whodunits set in the future.

the-sightseers-agency-author-terry-tumblerAbout the Author:
The author, writing under the pseudonym Terry Tumbler, was born in the 1940s in the small province of Wales, in not-as-‘Great’-as-it-once-was Britain. The adjoining photo of the real author has been air-brushed, so that the possibility of anyone stumbling upon his true identity will not disturb him, also believing that no one who reads his first book can possibly recognise him from the long gone days of his childhood. The first book, The Rough and Tumbles of Early Life, as you may be aware, is an accurate recollection of key events that occurred in his early life.  Others of a similar, warped humour and semi-fictional nature have been produced and are being published.

The author left full-time education with a higher level certificate in Business Studies, had a Commercial Apprenticeship in the Titanium Industry, and subsequently gained professional qualifications in Personnel Management and as a Company Secretary. He worked in all aspects of computing for over thirty years, during which time many reports of dubious value and two technical manuals were well-written and printed.

Now retired, and a few months after moving abroad, the author was bemused to find his dear wife sitting alone on her tilting armchair weeping; the reason she gave was shock and horror at the prospect of spending her remaining years with him. Since then, he has done his best to behave himself, but she has still taken out a funeral plan on him. They have three grandchildren, none of whom much like to be with him for more than two weeks.

Those who may wish to inflict retribution for his innocently evil behaviour as a child, may well see through the flimsy disguise, but should know that the author now lives on alien shores and cares not one jot for their intentions.
