About the author

 

Shaune Lafferty Webb was born in Brisbane, Australia. Her father was an amateur astronomer and her eldest brother, an avid science fiction reader, so perhaps it was inevitable that she developed an early enthusiasm for writing speculative fiction.

After obtaining a degree in geology from the University of Queensland, Shaune subsequently worked in geochemical laboratories, exploration companies, and, while living in the United States, at a multinational scientific institute involved in exploration beneath the ocean floors.

Her short stories have appeared in AntipodeanSF, The Nautilus Engine, Blue Crow Magazine, and The Vandal and her novels, ‘Bus Stop on a Strange Loop’ and ‘Balanced in An Angel’s Eye’, were released in 2011 and 2012, respectively. ‘Cold Faith’ and its sequel, ‘Faithless’, are the first and the second books in The Safe Harbour Chronicle, a series released by Hague Publishing.

Shaune lives in Brisbane with her husband, a research scientist, and a pair of wayward canine companions.

As androids proliferate, become highly skilled, and become difficult to tell apart from humans, Mytown Mining, Inc. takes full advantage of the situation to secretly rise up from below and give those responsible for top secret plans in the United States Air Force all that it can handle in the remotest western skies. Meanwhile, the three members of the Braun family, Ben, Jenny, and Max, are plucked from their normal routine to participate voluntarily in the top secret plans along with a few others to battle the crooked corporation sometimes underground, but mostly in the air. Ben, the inventor and manufacturer of the Mindblower, a sleek electronic device that boosts memory and enhances mental acuity, disappears on a family hike in the rain forest. When Jenny, his wife and a traveling pharmaceutical sales representative, and Max, his teenage son, try to find him in Jenny’s small plane, they discover the USAF top secret facilities and its latest top secret aircraft and androids. Then as they and their friends continue their search for Ben, they find themselves fighting for their lives and for those humans and androids beside them until they discover much more about what really goes on between the military and the bad mining corporation and the future for both humans and androids.

The Mindblower Androids is the second novel in a trilogy by Randall Edward Foss, beginning with The Mindblower Families. The story continues with The Mindblower Orbs, coming soon. Gradually, the recurring characters develop into greater importance as they are thrust deeper into the mysteries behind corporate control over the U.S. government and over energy economics. Mytown Mining, Inc., using android miners instead of human labor to dig deeper in remote regions first on earth and then in space for new energy reserves, must fight off both human and android heroes seeking to curtail its overbearing dominance threatening all human safety and freedom.

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (December 2017)

A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts—Year One is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives...

It began on New Year’s Eve.

The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.

Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most.

As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.

In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.

The end has come. The beginning comes next.
