November News

Kia Ora!
November is an exciting month for Splashdown...New releases, new reviews, and new opportunities for you to save on quality speculative fiction. Read on!

Now Available
You loved The Muse. Fred Warren ups the ante with The Seer. Follow Stan Marino and his daughter Hannah as new threats emerge from the world of inspiration.

Stan plopped into the sofa and ran his hands through his hair. He felt so tired, but sleep was the last thing he wanted now. “Okay, let’s put everything on the table. Hannah can see the future. Her new best friend can get into other peoples’ dreams. I may or may not have Leila Starling, the Malevolent Muse of Minneapolis, playing tiddly-winks inside my head. Finally, my not-so-late wife Charity, whose secret identity I have carefully shielded for the past five years, now must be explained to Hannah. Did I leave anything out?”
“You also led an army of comatose nerds against Leila’s devil dogs in the realm of imagination.”
“Not helpful, Jilly.”
“Sorry. You asked for it.”

Available at Amazon in paperback and Amazon for Kindle, as well as the paperback at Barnes & Noble. Other retailers are taking their time to list it, but you can get Epub for Nook at Smashwords along with many other formats.
