Come to Silver Hills. Where petting a cat can be a death sentence and yoga is all about survival.

Silver Hills Senior and Singles Residence isn’t exactly a boring place. Home to a death predicting cat named Tolstoy, a night manager who may or may not suck blood and float above the floor, a cook with mad voodoo and pie baking powers, and a trio of nosy sleuths who are determined to get to the bottom of the corpse in the library (maybe literally)…some might say things couldn’t get any weirder. Some would be wrong.

Welcome to Xoviion
by Johnny Neurvine
Rating: 5.0


Why are doors unlocking for him? Who are these ethereal strangers who seem to want to help him? Is all really as it seems on Xoviion?

A normal life awaits Brad on the new planet: pay the rent and get a date. Oh yeah, and surf on waves in the air (without spiraling out of control to the ground), try to solve a puzzle (given to him by someone he can’t remember), save the city (a mission given to him by someone he can’t get a hold of) … and laugh a lot. It’s just like Earth, only with sporadic gravity. It’s just like normal life, only it’s Xoviion.

Don’t Trust Me

Welcome to Hamlet. Population: 192. You can’t find it on any map, GPS, or directions site. A small village tucked between a mountain and a valley, Hamlet is the sort of place where everyone knows everyone–and their business, too. There’s no television. No internet. No phones. Only one way in and, for the locals, barely any way out. The sheriff is the law, the only doctor moonlights as the coroner, and outsiders hardly ever come to town. Murders are even rarer.

A treacherous storm, a flat tire, and a touch of serendipity causes Tessa Sullivan and her husband Jack to stumble upon the narrow strait that leads into Hamlet. It was supposed to be a one night stop until the rain let up and Jack could figure out how to fix the tire–until Tess lands herself in the local jail cell overnight and Jack is found dead in their hotel room the next morning…
