Anita Dime, Tome Wilson
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
This sci-fi smorgasbord serves up 9 retro tales inspired by the pulp magazines of the 1920s - 1940s. It drops you into the deco chiseled cities of alternate Americana, airlifts you to exotic locales, then rockets you to the farthest reaches of yesterday’s tomorrows!
Witness the otherworldly genesis of Wild Marjoram in a Chicagoland speakeasy as the violence of the all-female Killdeer Gang reaches vigilante-inspired fever pitch in "The Birth."
Flying taxis fight for space over New York as Johnny Grant, Private Eye, sifts streets rife with murder and corruption in "The Maltese Spectrum."
It's class-warfare in Citadel City as Pandora Driver and her Car of Tomorrow cruise the shadowy streets in search of one good cop in "Ready Fire Aim."
Resources dwindle as aqua farming Region 5 Spaceport Terminus pushes maximum population density, and the balance between man and machine collapses in "Bloom."
The fractured politics of the fractured 1920s Aether Age leaves a sheriff struggling to find the truth in "The More Things Change."
Would Ace Rango rather be locked in battle with snarling space lizards or a temperamental, little girl when "Bedtime Stories are Boring?"
World War II drags on into 1958 as one Australian airship officer seeks safe harbor before the lights go out during "Darkness Eternal: Over the South China Sea."
In Fascist ruled skies over prohibition-era America, a rogue pilot risks all to bring down a gang of rocket pack raiders with "The Rocket Molly Syndicate."
Captain Tony Lagarto's flying boat is hijacked by a lunatic Vinlander demanding transport to a place that doesn't exist in "Storming Shangri-La."
Retro adventure awaits fans of dieselpunk, sci-fi, ray-gun gothic, and pulp magazines. Download if you dare!

He was only spectating. Meanwhile, Burnham nodded his head with pride. So vigorously it almost became a curtsy. “I figured he weren’t
Some called it “the Dark War.” Australia itself had avoided the worst of the fighting, but too many men had gone to their deaths in faraway places. Her own father had died in some trackless pasture in western Russia. What had the world already lost, in skills, in memories, in the simple humanity of talking and feeling and touching? How much more could the world stand to lose? Women had taken over the fighting, and they'd have to handle the rebuilding as well. Around the world, cities and

They talk peace, but any missionary will the truth tell you, about how they young men and women lure in and brainwash until they will gladly themselves to their heathen gods make sacrifice.” “And I’m sure the missionaries have no ulterior motive in defaming a competing religion,” I say, voice dripping with snide. Although I am a practicing Christian, my particular Congolese branch of

He says something in the strange Da’oe tongue, and the four young men let Svensen up. “Father,” he says in Portuguese, obviously wanting me to hear and to understand. “Tomorrow you leave – without me.
