Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now a dust storm has nearly killed him and forced his crew to evacuate, thinking him dead.

Raksura: Stories of the Raksura Volume 1
Two new novellas featuring Moon and the shape-changers of Raksura, plus prequel short stories 'The Forest Boy' and 'Adaptation', and appendices.

The Falling World: Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, has traveled with Chime and Balm to another Raksuran court. When she fails to return, her consort Moon, along with Stone and a party of warriors and hunters, must track them down. Finding them turns out to be the easy part; freeing them from an ancient trap hidden in the depths of the Reaches is much more difficult.

The Tale of Indigo and Cloud: In the distant past, Indigo stole Cloud from Emerald Twilight. But in doing so, the reigning Queen Cerise and Indigo are now poised for a conflict that could spark war throughout all the courts of the Reaches.

Williams, Mark H.  
Sleepless Knights
Sir Lucas is butler to King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. He managed every quest from behind the scenes; his average working day involved defeating witches and banishing werewolves, while ensuring the Royal pot of tea never crossed the thin line separating 'brewed' from 'stewed.' And he's still doing it. When King Arthur and six of his knights are exposed as living in the modern world, Merlin is unleashed and a grim apocalypse unfolds, uncovering secrets from the past. Forced to confront his own peculiar destiny, will Lucas choose to sacrifice his true love and lay down his life in the service of his master?
