 Single mom Blondie Bing works for Naskie World. She reads the execution sentence, and AJ, her partner, pulls the trigger. The world is minus one more killer who thought he could beat justice. 

At Naskie World, everything follows a strict protocol, except on one night when AJ leads Blondie deep into the underbelly of Carrington City and kills three people and misses the fourth, the Right Honorable Payne, City Prefect. 

AJ acts without orders, without execution sentences, without apparent reason.

Blondie wakes to a changed world. The lawless violence she tried to escape her entire life returns in the shape of Trailey, a convicted killer, now free, now working for the broken system that is swallowing her whole. 

Masks, guns, and law – they don’t work anymore. Blondie needs to save her son. She needs to stay alive.

It's finally happening: the world is running out of oil. As major nations jockey and feud for the last carbon resources on the planet, one oil company sets its sights on the vast energy reserves of Europa, one of the largest of Jupiter's moons.

Thought to have twice as much water as Earth, Europa offers humanity the best chance of finding microorganic life within the solar system—life that would prohibit harvesting the moon’s resources under international space laws. To confirm the presence or absence of life, Earth’s leaders plan a manned mission to Europa.

Jamie Caldicott, husband, father, and hero of a botched Mars mission, grudgingly accepts a position on the crew. His main concern is providing for his family. The presence or absence of Europan life doesn't much interest him.

As the mission progresses, however, it becomes evident that powerful interests plan to harvest Europa whether or not life exists. As they journey farther from Earth than any manned craft before them, Caldicott discovers that some of his crewmates aren’t who they claim to be.

The fates of two worlds depend on Jamie Caldicott. If he makes the wrong choice, he'll never return from Europa's icy surface.

"IndieReader Approved. Fans of sci-fi novels will enjoy J. J. Co's EUROPA, a fast-paced thriller set on one of Jupiter's moons....Plenty of high-stakes scenes are included....EUROPA offers a fun read for sci-fi devotees." IndieReader

"...well-written story of what could be a possible future with suspense and intrigue on almost every page. The cast of characters is diverse and their interaction sets the stage for much of the action." Paul Johnson for Readers' Favorite

 

 

Vividly imagined, stunningly prophetic, and epic in scope, The Diamond Age is a major novel from one of the most visionary writers of our time

Decades into our future, a stone’s throw from the ancient city of Shanghai, a brilliant nanotechnologist named John Percival Hackworth has just broken the rigorous moral code of his tribe, the powerful neo-Victorians. He's made an illicit copy of a state-of-the-art interactive device called A Young Ladys Illustrated Primer  Commissioned by an eccentric duke for his grandchild, stolen for Hackworth's own daughter, the Primer’s purpose is to educate and raise a girl capable of thinking for herself. It performs its function superbly. Unfortunately for Hackworth, his smuggled copy has fallen into the wrong hands.

Young Nell and her brother Harv are thetes—members of the poor, tribeless class.  Neglected by their mother, Harv looks after Nell.  When he and his gang waylay a certain neo-Victorian—John Percival Hackworth—in the seamy streets of their neighborhood, Harv brings Nell something special: the Primer.

Following the discovery of his crime, Hackworth begins an odyssey of his own. Expelled from the neo-Victorian paradise, squeezed by agents of Protocol Enforcement on one side and a Mandarin underworld crime lord on the other, he searches for an elusive figure known as the Alchemist.  His quest and Nell’s will ultimately lead them to another seeker whose fate is bound up with the Primer—a woman who holds the key to a vast, subversive information network that is destined to decode and reprogram the future of humanity.
