Coming in October, WEIRD TALES OF THE SKULLMASK by Teel James Glenn. This adventure/fantasy traces weird happenings in times when revenge and justice are the same. It'll be on sale for only $1.00, but only for a month so check back often.
The AREA 51 OPTION (and 70 more Speculative Fiction Tales) is now available for only $1.00 (regular price is $3.99). Be sure to act quickly--introductory pricing ends October 19. (By the way, Kechula also wrote A FULL DECK OF ZOMBIES. Kechula is one of America's top flash fiction story-tellers and THE AREA 51 OPTION lets you see why. We've got aliens, zombies, mad scientists, and cute little girls selling nice dreams for a nickel (but be sure to read the fine print).
