VESPASIAN MOON’S FABULOUS AUTUMN CARNIVAL: A LONG SHORT STORY
Federal Agent Jane Raczyck is tired of her job. So is Sheriff Sixtus Davis, the head law enforcement officer in the town of Turpin’s Gulch. But when Raczyck’s agency sends her to work with Davis on combating the drug epidemic in the small Appalachian hamlet, the two are compelled to investigate the local carnival and its mysterious impresario… even though they’d much rather be doing other things together.
“Spooky entertaining fun!”–Mad Margaret
“This reminded me of Hollywood’s screwball comedies but with the sexual tension brought right out of the closet. None of it is cheesy or vulgar; it fits the story like a well-cut suit.”–Joy V. Spicer
“A quick read with colorful characters and wonderful wit.”–Carrie.
THE HOUSE OF TEUFELVELT
Rachel Pounsett takes a job at Leviathan State University, where her daughter Alice is an undergraduate.

“A fun read and a great way to start the Halloween season. I didn’t want to put it down!”–Amazon review.
1NG4: A LONG SHORT STORY
Gunnar is part of a team studying a powerful new energy source aboard the seaborne platform Ryojin. But their work is interrupted, first by mysterious attackers, and then by a visitor from the sea even stranger than the new technology…
“Circumstances and loyalties shift on every page, leading to an ending that is at once satisfying and intriguing.”–Audrey Driscoll.
The year is 2223. Lt. Theresa Gannon is a loyal soldier, even as she gradually discovers that there are traitors in the ranks. But when she is sent to a remote station on the edge of Directorate-controlled space, she begins to learn the full scope of what the traitors are planning, and uncover troubling secrets about the Directorate itself.
“The Directorate deserves to be widely read by lovers of science fiction.”–Noah Goats
“The ethos of Heinlein mingles with shades of Star Wars, providing an exciting cornucopia of huge starships and vast conspiracies.”–Phillip McCollum
If anyone is looking for an enjoyable, optimistic science fiction novel, I recommend Berthold Gambrel’s THE DIRECTORATE, available on Amazon for $0.99.
