But not quite sure what to get those special people in your life?
Well, you’ve come to the right place because I have plenty of suggestions for you. The Kingdom wholeheartedly endorses the following wonderful books:
Life on Earth is predicted to end on 15 July 2015. But the oncoming megatons of rock and ice break up shortly before impact. Now humanity must live in a world most believed would not exist. Across the planet, people are haunted by the future they did not fear, and even those who did not embrace death must face the consequences of others’ decisions. A collection of twelve stories about rebuilding hope.
*Shameless plug: I wrote one of the stories in this collection*
Here’s one of my favorite passages from the book, which is why I chose to tease you all with it by placing it on the back cover:
Shift danced the Erratic Sun in a life or death waltz among the stars. All the while, Gillian and Dane monitored the engine’s performance and the slow reduction of the ship’s shields and Trink, Hatcher and Captain Dadam did their best to score hits against the modified freighters that had ambushed their departure from Corment. The hull shuddered equally under the erratic jerks to avoid incoming fire, sporadically punctuating Shift’s smooth handling of his evasive protocols, and under hits to the ship the pilot wasn’t able to dodge. With each impact, the curses the pilot muttered grew in intensity and their creativity fell off. The spray of laser fire missing their targets, spreading out from the Erratic Sun’s three gun turrets, ran to the limits of the gunners’ visions before being swallowed by the darkness of space. Chaos reigned.
*Another shameless plug, as if it weren’t already obvious: I wrote this story with Revis*
And the best part of these gifts is that not only will they be thoroughly enjoyed by whoever you gift them to, but the purchase of them is also a gift to the authors you are then supporting. In this case, we are talking about me here, so thank you in advance.
