Spooktacular tidings, Gatherers and Grand Geeks! We are on the eve of All Hallow’s Eve this coming Saturday and I couldn’t be happier. It’s actually gotten cooler in this realm of Southern California and my pumpkin has been bought and all the pumpkin spice in the world is now mine for the consumption. But seriously let’s see what looks good this week in the indie reading realm, shall we?!

Synopsis: “Winston Wallis has a secret. He is all that remains of mankind, and is surrounded on all sides by demons, monsters, and ghouls that picked up where humankind left off – lying, stealing, cheating, and killing. Years ago, it was Winston’s job to investigate such things. Now his ex-partner needs help solving the brutal murder of the world’s largest Colossal…”


How does one survive in a world where everything is far tougher than you, and you happen to be mankind’s last surviving member? Incredible amounts of luck, that’s how! And Winston Wallis has tons of it as he must investigate the murder of the world’s largest Colossal. But will that luck of his run out this time?

Synopsis: “When one of RICK’S experiments on knowledge-absorption-via-osmosis goes horribly awry (and when don’t they), Rick and MORTY find themselves sucked into AVALONIA: SAD STORIES FOR BAD CHILDREN, an ancient, dusty tome full of fairy tales. And not the sanitized, Disney version – we’re talking old-school, Grimm-dark fairy tales…”


Well it seems another experiment has gone wrong for Rick Sanchez, with him and Morty sucked into the realm of a Grimm-dark fairy tale. Separated by geography and sorcery, the two must find their way back to each other and find a way to prevent this whole realm from being destroyed before they can escape.
