We've got some great summer Spinradian reading for you from ReAnimus Press!
To start, we have the first US print release of MEXICA, from the award-winning Norman Spinrad. #SFWApro
If you enjoy history, you'll love MEXICA. It's a cool story, the tale of Cortes and Montezuma, as told by a conquistador who was there to witness it. We've also got the ebook edition. Both are available at:

In other news from ReAnimus Press......
For those who like steampunk, or hard SF, I hope you'll be as excited as I am that I can announce my ReAnimus Press is publishing not one but -two- collections of short stories by the awesome Sean McMullen. Watch for more news about GHOSTS OF ENGINES PAST and COLOURS OF THE SOUL. I posted the covers to my facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/andrew.l.burt ) so y'all can see them. I think they're brilliant.
A special shoutout that ReAnimus Press will be publishing (SFWA pro) Chet Gottfried's new fantasy novel, THE GILDED BASILISK. More news anon!
Meanwhile, Henry Gee's SIEGE OF STARS, beloved by folks like Greg Bear, Michael Moorcock, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Nancy Kress, and the first book of THE SIGIL TRILOGY, is at 99c here and on Amazon for a short time. All print and ebook editions at
I think it's one of the best books I've ever read, so you won't be disappointed.
"Henry Gee stakes his claim to excellence with these startling, beautifully written tales of cosmic adventure. Brisk, funny, triumphant—and utterly compelling."—Greg Bear
Also check out a duology Romance series that (Star Trek master writer) Jerry Sohl wrote under the name Roberta Jean Mountjoy: NIGHT WIND and BLACK THUNDER. He wrote a ton of stuff, lots of SF, fun ones like UNDERHANDED CHESS, plus a bunch more — all of which we're re-releasing at:

On the isolated world of Seltique, where a ritual of legalized murder reinforces a complex and rigid class system, bionically augmented trouble-shooter Larson McCade sets out to find the Book of Aradka, repository of the ancient wisdom of an alien race. His search progressively unveils the hidden story of his own great-grandfather's flight from the mysterious upheavals which plunged once-great Seltique into a dark age of paranoia and xenophobia.

Allen L. Wold is the bestselling author of nine science fiction novels: THE PLANET MASTERS, STAR GOD, THE EYE IN THE STONE, JEWELS OF THE DRAGON, CROWN OF THE SERPENT, LAIR OF THE CYCLOPS, and three novels in the _V_ (television tie-in) series.
All except the _V_ books are coming soon from ReAnimus Press. (Can't get ahold of anyone at Warner Bros. to get the dang rights for those _V_ books. Would love to get THX1138 from them too. Anybody know anybody at Warner???) :)
Four new titles in the works from Ben Bova, four from Karen Haber, and two fascinating history titles from Jeff Kisseloff, one an orally recorded history of TV, and one an oral history of New York City, told by those who were there... watch this space!

For those who like mysteries, ReAnimus Press has just published all the volumes in the Kieran Lenahan mystery series by Conor Daly, starting with LOCAL KNOWLEDGE.
"A FAST-PACED MYSTERY"
—THE NEW YORK TIMES
Set in the world of pro-am golf, Kieran Lenahan, golf pro at Milton Country Club in Westchester County, N.Y., has just earned a berth in a local PGA tournament when the police inform him that the body of one of his club's co-owners has been fished out of a water hazard. Lenahan, a former lawyer, is stunned to hear he has been named in the dead man's will and designated to evaluate a set of rare, legendary Blitzklubs clubs, the sale of which is the sole inheritance for the dead man's beautiful trophy wife. Then the clubs are stolen, and Lenahan's young shop assistant, a reforming juvenile delinquent, is arrested for the murder. Lenahan must find the real murderer to free his assistant, search for the clubs—and prepare to play his opening PGA round.
As Publisher's weekly says, "Even non-golfers will delight in Lenahan's love of the game and the fairway world."
"DALY SCORES A BIRDIE"
Also released are the others in the Kieran Lenahan series — get them all at the $2.99 introductory price while it lasts. :)
