The Maids of Chateau Vernet

by Steven Landry and Katie Rae Sank

A soldier from the future finds himself stuck in a world at war with a hearty supply of military technology, a team of unexpected heroes, and a reason to fight. This collaborative work weaves an action filled adventure with science fiction, alternative history, and a dynamic cast of characters. Hiram Halphen, an Israeli soldier from 2050 in the midst of a failing mission, finds himself thrown back to the year 1942. With no hope of returning to his own time and family, Hiram heads to France to save his great-great-grandmother – an expected victim of the madness spreading through Vichy France at the height of World War II. Aided by a tinder box of technology from the future and a group of unlikely soldiers from the past, Hiram and the Maids of Chateau Vernet set out to save their families and maybe even end the war. The documented timeline changes with each new ripple they generate. Can they save their loved ones before it’s too late, without destroying France along the way? Experience a vibrant mix of science fiction and historical drama as you join Hiram Halphen and The Maids of Chateau Vernet on their journey through France during a time of political turmoil and state-sanctioned persecution.

Old Farts in Space

Edited by Steven Landry

Looking for adventure? Climb aboard The Good Ship January 1955 Beta on a farcical journey to the Sagittarius system. Thirteen passengers – most of them over 70 years old – serve one-month shifts out of stasis to help guide the Good Ship while the crew of four and the other 65,000 passengers remain in stasis – what could possibly go wrong? Aided by computer avatar Joycelyn Effervescent, and robotic companions PHIL and EDNA MAE, the crew and passengers encounter strange phenomena and alien beings, create new relationships, tackle unpredictable challenges, and make a discovery that has implications for the future of Earth. Co-authors Steve Landry, Dan Cassenti, Kate Lashley, Larry Garnett and others have crafted a collection of short stories chronicling the quest for a new home for humans among the stars. While paying homage to the American pop culture in the late twentieth century, the authors of Old Farts in Space: Journey of a Lifetime reveal that for the passengers of the Good Ship, life begins at 70.

The Legend of Indian Stream by Steven Landry

The Legend of Indian Stream

By Steven Landry

Historians don’t know much about the North American Republic of Indian Stream—mostly that it existed for only five years before becoming little more than a footnote in history textbooks.

But in Steven Landry’s debut novel, an alternative timeline makes the Republic—situated north of New Hampshire’s White Mountains and having recently seceded from the United States and British Canada to build the purest of democracies—the perfect landing spot for the Fallon Party, a group hailing from 2035 intent on stopping a deadly plague in its tracks.

Thunder pestis”—a mutation of the black death—first emerged in Confederate prison camps. Centuries later, after becoming weaponized, drug and vaccine resistant, it’s poised to destroy humankind. Corcoran Fallon is set to change everything when he lands in 1832, but he must first help the small yet hardy Republic survive a variety of forces, from British invaders to American spies.

In this fusion of science fiction and alternative history, you’ll be transported to a universe filled with nanovaccines, destructive temporal tides, and temporal artifacts—where time misbehaves and all life ceases to exist.

Will the Fallon Party find Patient Zero before it’s permanently too late?
