Join us for a multi-genre invasion of Edmonton authors!
When the Fahr pet merchants arrive on the Earth in the middle of the 14th century, they are on a routine pet collecting expedition. Teracia, a Fahr female, sees the pet merchant’s profit-is-everything mentality as a serious threat to a plague-ravished and stagnant humanity. She does everything she can to protect them but then the merchants discover humpback whales, singers of the most powerful, addictive and potentially lucrative songs they have ever encountered. When the merchants realize their ship is too small to transport these animals, they decide to return to their home planet for something bigger. It’s a round trip that will take 650 years. No one in the Fahr leadership believes that humanity will present much of a challenge but, when the Fahr return; they find that humanity has evolved into a much different beast. Now Teracia must try and protect the inhabitants of Earth from a war they can’t possibly win.
Marie Jenner is going home.
When Marie’s slightly-more-than-boss, James Lavall, decides it is vital that he speak to her mother, face to face, about Marie and all her secrets, she follows him to Fort McMurray to make certain that he doesn’t learn everything about her life before Edmonton.
What Marie doesn’t realize is that her stalkery ex-boyfriend, Arnie Stillwell, has gone home, too. And he’s managed to get himself killed, just about the time James rolled into town, making James “a person of interest” in the Stillwell murder investigation.
Marie’s going to have to figure out who really killed Arnie to get James off. She’s also going to have to figure out a safe way to move Arnie’s spirit on to the next plane of existence, because the last thing she needs is for him to go all stalkery on her now that he’s dead.
Captain Mueller is dead. Hanged, apparently, by his own hand. But ex-police officer and war hero Sergeant August Neumann doesn’t think it’s quite so simple. How could it be with blackshirts, legionnaires, and communist sympathisers vying for control of the camp?
Now Sergeant Neumann must navigate these treacherous cliques to find the truth while under the watchful eyes of his Canadian captors.
