THE HANGED MAN'S NOOSE by Debut Canadian Author Judy Penz Sheluk is ReleasedTHE HANGED MAN'S NOOSE by Debut Canadian Author Judy Penz Sheluk is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jul 31, 2015

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit Fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the first book in the new 'Glass Dolphin Mysteries' series, 'The Hanged Man's Noose,' by Canadian author Judy Penz Sheluk. A professional member of Sisters in Crime International and many other writing organizations, Penz Sheluk is also a freelance writer specializing in art, antiques and the residential housing industry. Her articles have appeared regularly in dozens of U.S. and Canadian consumer and trade publications. Small-town secrets and subterfuge lead to murder in this fast-moving, deftly written tale of high-stakes real estate wrangling gone amok. Journalist Emily Garland lands a plum assignment as the editor of a niche magazine based in Lount's Landing, a small town named after a colorful 19th century Canadian traitor. As she interviews the local business owners for the magazine, Emily quickly learns that many people are unhappy with real estate mogul Garrett Stonehaven's plans to convert an old schoolhouse into a mega-box store. At the top of that list is Arabella Carpenter, the outspoken owner of an antiques shop, who will do just about anything to preserve the integrity of the town's historic Main Street. But Arabella is not alone in her opposition. Before long, a vocal dissenter at a town hall meeting about the proposed project dies. A few days later, another body is discovered, and although both deaths are ruled accidental, Emily's journalistic suspicions are aroused. Putting her reporting skills to the ultimate test, Emily teams up with Arabella to discover the truth behind Stonehaven's latest scheme before the murderer strikes again.

S F Chapman Release New Genetic Engineering Science Fiction NovelS F Chapman Release New Genetic Engineering Science Fiction Novel
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2015

Striped Cat Press and author, S F Chapman are pleased to announce the of their science Fiction novel, 'Floyd 5.136,' which is a thought-provoking genetic engineering story. Who was she? Floyd stared with great interest at the slumbering young woman as she was slowly freed from the silky gray cocoon. She was quite striking Floyd realized. But more importantly, she was the first new person to be generated in more than fifteen thousand years. For eons, the strange fibrous life form known as 'The Cotton' had regularly produced nearly innumerable copies of the same seven people. The group members lived rather ordinary lives and, when old age or accidents interceded, died ordinary deaths. But Floyd and his companions always started out in the same very unusual and unhuman-like way as cocoon-bound twenty-five year old adults in full possession of their past memories. Everything would change with the arrival of the intriguing young woman. Floyd 5.136 is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: 'Floyd 5.136' The MAC Series, Book 1 By S F Chapman Publisher: Striped Cat Press Published: April 2015 ISBN: 978-0996223607 ASIN: B00VDPN1KW Pages: 302 Genre: Science Fiction, Genetic Engineering Fiction About The Author: After many years of work in the construction industry, S F Chapman returned to his long neglected passion for writing. A persistent reader of Fiction, periodicals and science magazines with an extensive memory for interesting and obscure tidbits, the lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area has just finished up composing eight novels in five short years. He put his grand plan into effect during the summer of 2009 by writing a science Fiction novel called 'Floyd 5.136.' This innovative first project is an often-frightening tale of human clones from the mid twenty-first century unwittingly trapped in a strange world in the far future. Since then he has completed a gritty drama entitled 'On the Back of the Beast' about a huge earthquake that destroys much of Northern California. Mr. Chapman has written two sequels to 'Floyd 5.136' called 'Xea in the Library of All Human Knowledge' and 'Beyond the Habitable Limit.' His Science Fiction Detective/Adventure 'Free City Series' currently consists of two volumes: 'The Ripple in Space-Time,' and the recently published 'Torn From On High.' The author has also produced two literary Fiction novels: 'I'm here to help' about a series of minor deceptions and unremarkable errors that lead to a most extraordinary conclusion, the unintended adoption of a newborn girl and the newly completed novel about homelessness called 'The Missive in the Margins.'

Poet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORANPoet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORAN
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2015

Poet Jonathan Goh's recent publication, 'Eludoran: The Legend of Lorelei in a Geste of Grave Misconceptions' (published by Partridge Singapore) has earned the distinction of longest fantasy rhyming poem ever written in Singapore. Dedicated as a tribute to his late grandfather, 'Eludoran' is a commentary of stereotypical fantasy Fiction comprising three acts in 44 chapters. This numbering is not a coincidence; it is intended as a subtle reference of its subject matter since the number four in Chinese cultures is synonymous with death. Inspired by the works of earlier fantasy authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Brian Jacques, 'Eludoran' offers its audience a darker perspective into the world of animal fantasy. (more...)

THE CHRONOCAR by Debut Author Steve Bellinger is ReleasedTHE CHRONOCAR by Debut Author Steve Bellinger is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jul 29, 2015

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit Fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the science Fiction time travel thriller 'The Chronocar' by Chicago, Illinois, debut author Steve Bellinger. Simmie Johnson was born the son of a slave. He was also a genius. After earning a PhD in physics from Tuskegee Institute, he wrote a paper outlining a theory for time travel, including plans for a time machine-called a Chronocar-which was published in a scientific journal in the early 1900s. Since the technology required to build the Chronocar did not yet exist, the paper and its brilliant writer faded into obscurity. A century later, a young Illinois Tech student, Tony Carpenter, discovers the journal article and decides to build a Chronocar so he can travel back to 1919 to meet the black scientist he hopes to emulate. Unfortunately, time is not on his side. Dr. Johnson is living in Chicago's Black Belt with his beautiful daughter-and Tony arrives just in time for the bloodiest race riot in the city's history. Can Tony use the Chronocar to save his new friends, or will his attempt forever alter the future he hopes to return to? Ask for 'The Chronocar' at your favorite bookstore, or buy it online at the Barking Rain Press website, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Powells, Waterstones, and many other Internet bookstores. It is also available as an eBook through Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, iTunes iBooks, Kobo, Content Reserve/Overdrive, the Barking Rain Press website and many other outlets worldwide.

In this 2015 season of 'Magic, Murder, and Mayhem' Maine's Theater at Monmouth serves up a gripping adaptation of Henry James' familiar tale of psychological Gothic horror, The Turn of the Screw. The novella tells the story of a governess' battle to wrench her two young charges from the grasp of spirits who haunt their estate and to probe the dark secrets which exert a debilitating psychological hold on everyone at Bly. Adapted here by Jeffrey Hatcher as a two person drama in which one actor plays all the characters other than the governess, TAM's seventy-five minute production has a lean look and taut pace that rivet even an audience familiar with the work.
