Smiling Is Contagious – Edward M. GrantTired of healing wounded soldiers on the borders of the British Empire, Silas Cane returns to the heartlands of Victorian England as a rural doctor. The quiet Oxfordshire village is a welcome break from the chaos of war, until a smiling madman dies of a disease never seen before.

GreenAfter providing a good home for her butt-ugly dog and psychotic cat, Carrie’s biggest challenge in life is to avoid being fired, again.Then a strange green mist sucks her beneath her kitchen sink, and an unusual clerical error leads to an offer she foolishly doesn’t refuse.
Spared: Alone (Survivors of the Apocalypse, Book 1) – Graham ToselandNo power. No internet. No phones. No clue what has happened and, worst of all, no people.The few survivors are alone, stuck in a world where everything they have come to rely on was taken away in the blink of an eye.
Sounds Of Soldiers – Ian PattinsonFive years after a crazy US President started a bizarre guerrilla campaign against the Muslim citizens of Europe, which quickly escalated into confrontations all across the continent, there is finally peace.Robert Jones reported on key events of the war, but now he’s home. Can he adapt to peace?
Impact (The IMPACT Series Book 1) – Matthew EliotIt’s been nine months since the meteorites hit.

Pickers – Garth OwenRemy and his family are on hunting a seed bank, hidden away before climate change crashed everything. The trail has led them to a bunker, and what they find inside is going to send them back to the community they ran away from ten years ago.
The Bottle Stopper (The Paper Duchess Book 1) – Angeline TrevenaMaeve was six when they took her mother away, and left her in the care of her Uncle Lou.For eleven years she’s lived with him in Falside’s slums, deep in the silt of the Falwere River.

Even if it means people have to die.
The Galapagos Incident (Book 1 of the Sol System Renegades series) – Felix R. SavageTasked with evacuating the squatters on 11073 Galapagos from their doomed asteroid, Space Corps agent Elfrida Goto struggles with an uncooperative telepresence robot and an angry local liaison.But when a lethal AI fleet attacks Elfrida’s home base, her mission changes in a hurry.

Fade To Grey – Edward M. GrantMaintenance Bot M-3 was always proud of the smooth and reliable operation of the starships it maintained as they travelled the galaxy searching for life on unexplored worlds.
