Could a species of highly intelligent beings have evolved on Earth millions of years ago? A species with technology more advanced than our own today? That’s the remarkable claim of independently wealthy amateur paleontologist Derek Becker. Becker has proof that the great dinosaur extinction that occurred 65 million years ago was the result of a nuclear catastrophe, that some of these intelligent beings were able to escape to a planet orbiting a nearby star, and that these displaced creatures sent an interstellar craft back to Earth to make contact with any survivors of the nuclear holocaust. Becker enlists a small team of scientists to make contact with this craft and discover the secrets that it holds. Among them is Professor Dawson Jones, a one-time contender for the Nobel Prize who, because of his drinking problems, has been reduced to teaching remedial chemistry in a back woods college. Jones sees this as an opportunity to prove to the science community the importance of his work and regain his past glory.
The scientists, tasked with making a space probe to intercept the alien craft, assemble at an abandoned research facility in remote Turkey. As the work progresses Jones realizes that there is much more to the program than meets the eye – that the scientists are, in fact, just pawns in a much bigger game. But just who are the players calling the moves, and what are their goals? Almost too late Jones learns the answers to these questions and leads the scientists in a breathtaking race against time, both to save themselves and to prevent a terrorist attack of unprecedented proportions on the US.
White Collar, Green Flame is a science-based thriller of the genre that Carl Djerassi terms “science in fiction”. The story takes its inspiration from the work of Michael Crichton: its plot is driven by scientific ideas that are explained in an easy-to-understand way and that propel the story to its heart-stopping conclusion.

ART FOR THE SAKE OF ART: A Novel
Ever wonder what your life would be like if you met yourself from another dimension? Well, neither did Art. But wait! What if yourself from another dimension also turned out to be a god? Yeah, Art wouldn’t care either.
If Art were a candy, he’d be a Whopper. But he’d be one of those weird Whoppers that the factory forgets to fill with malt. For as long as he can remember, he’s felt empty, and no matter how hard he tries, he can’t bring himself to feel a single, solitary emotion about anything. Apparently, according to the ridiculous nature of the Multiverse, Art’s complete lack of anything valuable inside has made him a sort of chosen one. And that’s precisely why a mischief god version of himself from an alternate dimension appears on his doorstep one morning, demanding that Art come along on a quest to save the Multiverse. This is a problem for Art, because he has no desire to be a chosen one, especially when it means running off on some absurd adventure. But the mischief god ignores any protest and uses his jump bug Beverly, a nearly two-foot-long mystical cockroach, to whisk Art away to a dimension populated by dwarves in order to acquire a cosmic weapon before a vast evil force can beat them to it. The trouble with this development isn’t that Art particularly dislikes dwarves–he has no feelings about them, really–it’s mainly that these dwarves are attired in Girl Scout uniforms and possessed by the murderous souls of dead dictators.
Meanwhile, Art has left behind the one beacon of positivity in his life, Ginny. Tragically, she has fallen in love with the one man who can never love her back. More tragically, she finds herself kidnapped by the most dreaded of the grotesque dwarves from the aforementioned alternate earth. Most tragically, this dwarf relentlessly pits Ginny against her mate in an effort to beat them to the weapon. The story trades off between Art’s and Ginny’s viewpoints, yielding a tale that satirizes many of the common tropes of science fiction adventure stories.

A TOP 100 NEW ADULT BESTSELLER
In Japan, they say there’s a red thread of fate that binds people who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. It may tangle, it may knot, it may stretch or fray, but it will never break. It is a future as indelible as the past.
I hope that isn’t true. I pity anyone destined to meet me.
For Bianca Ray, the past is always catching up, one way or another. Now in her third semester at college, it’s doing it again. Too much drinking has led to plummeting grades and rising absences, putting her scholarships in peril. When she makes it clear that she needs help–all over the floor of her history class–she’s given one last chance to shape up: seek therapy and bring her grades up by the end of the semester, or she’s out.
Enter Catholic seminarian Daniel McGuire. The last thing Bianca wants is an aspiring priest to counsel her on how to live her life, but the handsome graduate student is different from the holy rollers she fled from at home. Gentle and unobtrusive, he helps her pick up the pieces and find a new way to live: not running from the past, but facing it head on.
But opening up her heart to release the pain means that something else can come in. As Bianca and Daniel grow closer, their relationship moves onto dangerous ground. When they finally cross the line, the fragile courage Bianca has built up threatens to fail her. Can she exorcise the ghosts of her past, or will they catch hold and drag her down where not even Daniel can reach her?
