New ways to enjoy Scott Overton’s fiction

SF member Scott Overton recently used his 30 years of experience as a broadcaster to convert some of his fiction to audio. His mystery/thriller novel about the radio industry, Dead Air, is now available in audio format from Audible.

When radio morning man Lee Garrett receives a death threat he shrugs it off as a prank, until harassment turns into outright attempts on his life. Then the deadliest attack yet claims an innocent victim and Garret knows he must force a confrontation with his persecutors.

Scott has also been busy with his short fiction. Fifteen of Scott’s science fiction and fantasy short stories  available in  e-book form via the anthologies Disastrous!, Body Of Opinion and other stories plus the series Beyond: The Stars, Beyond: Time, and Beyond: Technology are now gathered together into one paperback. BEYOND: Stories Beyond Time, Technology, and the Stars is now available to buy in print form through Amazon and other online retailers. Your favourite independent bookstore can also order it through the book distributor Ingram.

A Time and a Place released as an audio book

SF Canada member Joe Mahoney’s A Time and a Place is now available at Audible.

Barnabus’ nephew is behaving oddly.

Calling upon Doctor Humphrey for assistance has not been particularly helpful because the good doctor’s diagnosis of demonic possession is clearly preposterous. Even the demon currently ensconced on the front-room couch agrees it’s preposterous. But then, how else to explain the portal to another world through which his nephew and Humphrey have just now disappeared?

Barnabus knows their only chance of rescue is for Barnabus J. Wildebear himself to step up and go through that portal.

Thus begins an existential romp across space and time, trampling on Barnabus’ assumptions about causality, free will, identity, good, and evil. Can Barnabus save his nephew – and incidentally, all of humanity?
